New White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci issued an apology for his expletive-laden blowup at The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza, but only for his "colorful language."

He did not apologize for attacking Reince Priebus, White House adviser Steve Bannon and saying he wants to personally "kill" all "the f*cking leakers."

Scaramucci has been on the job for less than a week -- and has not even been officially hired by the government.
