Scaramucci: White House plotters seeking Trump exit

Posted August 14, 2017

"I believe that everyone who works in the White House who has the privilege, the great privilege every day of serving their nation should be motivated by that goal", he said.

Scaramucci has been a vocal critic of Bannon and offered a cryptic response when asked if Bannon should go.

"The whole thing is nonsensical", he added.

During an interview on NBC's "Meet The Press", McMaster was asked whether he could still work together in the White House with Bannon.

"You also got this sort of "Bannonbart" influence in there, which I think is a snag on the president", he stated.

"I don't think you're going to change the president", Scaramucci said. And if he does that, he'll have a very successful legislative agenda that he'll be able to execute.

Trump fired Scaramucci, a wealthy NY financier, on July 31, just days after naming him as communications director.

"I think the president knows what he's going to do with Steve Bannon".

Speaking on why President Trump failed to condemn white supremacists after the Charlottesville incidents on Friday night and Saturday morning, Scaramucci urged him to "hit [them] harder" and mused that "the moderates and the independents... that want to support the President, and want to help the President with his legislative agenda, I think they'll find that to be more favourable than this sort of micro Bannonbart group of people that like that sort of nonsense".

"He has to move away from that sort of "Bannon-bart" nonsense", Scaramucci said, apparently combining Bannon's name with Breitbart, the website that Bannon ran before joining Trump's campaign past year. It's not serving the president's interests. And if he doesn't do that, you're going to see this inertia and you're going to see this resistance from more of the establishment senators that he needs to curry favor with.

According to the report, Trump has been "irritated" with Bannon following a series of Breitbart reports targeting McMaster.

Scaramucci insisted he was unaware the interview was being recorded and hit out at The New Yorker journalist Ryan Lizza after the interview was published, taking to Twitter to describe Lizza as the "Linda Tripp of 2017" and insisting "He absolutely taped the call without my permission", adding #lowlife. I'm accountable for the mistake.
