The average person would not be prepared to be on the political stage. Just like the top box office stars in Hollywood, every word you say, every action you take is heavily scrutinized by the media and the general public. Everything about the individual is ‘fair game.’ It was their choice and they must accept whatever criticism they receive; true or false.
We know that Donald Trump was not prepared for these facts, and we now know that his younger clone is as ignorant as he was.
White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci, is already complaining about his lack of privacy. “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”
“Leave civilians out of this,” he tweeted Friday. “I can take the hits, but I would ask that you would put my family in your thoughts and prayers & nothing more.”
Scaramucci was responding to the revelation that his wife is filing for divorce. She told friends that she loves her ‘Wall Street’ lifestyle, and does not want to live in Washington. Deidre Ball also stated that she was displeased with her husband’s “naked political ambition.”
I’m sorry “Mooch,” but this is news if you choose to be in politics. Ms. Ball’s reasons for seeking a divorce are of interest to those who follow the events in Washington.
“Family does not need to be drawn into this,” the Mooch tweeted Saturday morning. “Soon we will learn who in the media has class and who doesn’t. No further comments on this.”
We already know that the Mooch has no class; we all read his vile attacks on former Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, and Chief Adviser, Steve Bannon.
Finally, you asked for this. You literally begged for a job in the White House, and you must learn to accept the fact that you no longer have a ‘private life;’ you belong to the public.
I was slightly concerned when Sean Spicer resigned. Sarah Huckabee Sanders is dull. But now we have Scaramucci who I’m sure will provide the late night comics with an abundance of new material. And all of the other “gumbas” can look to their new symbol in Washington.
Please re-post; thank you.
