Anthony “the Mooch” Scarmucci remains angry about losing his dream job. In a very futile effort to defend himself, he is only making matters worse and has proven that Trump was a fool to hire him in the first place; once again revealing his poor judgment.
It all began with a telephone interview conducted by the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza. Lizza recorded the conversation, and reported it all, including some of the foulest language ever seen in print; almost. Although the Mooch promised to practice self-control, he was fired immediately after John Kelly was promoted to White House chief of staff.
Mooch claims that it was illegal to record his conversation; he’s wrong. “He absolutely taped the call without my permission. #lowlife,” Scaramucci tweeted. He then compared his situation with that of Linda Tripp during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Of course the uninformed Mooch is mistaken. Both ends of the phone call were conducted in the District of Columbia. The law states that only one of the parties must know about the recording of a conversation. It’s called “one party consent.” When Linda Tripp talked to Lewinsky, she was in Maryland.
None of this stopped the Mooch from venting his anger.
I don’t know why the Mooch is so upset. His desire to be close to Trump became a reality, even if it only lasted for 10 days, cost him his marriage, missed the birth of his son, and forced him to sell his business; a small price to pay.
Please re-post; thank you.
