Scaramucci secretly dined with Katrina Pierson at Trump Hotel hours after firing announced

Published

on

Just moments after being “released” from his position as communications director, Anthony Scaramucci headed to the Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Hanging out at the Trump Hotel’s BLT Prime, Scaramucci sat on his cell phone most of the night and barely even touched his food, the Daily Mail reported. Meanwhile, his old boss President Donald Trump was tweeting about what a great day it was.

He was there with other Trump loyalists, including Katrina Pierson, who is working for a pro-Trump PAC. The group chose a secluded table in the corner under a tree.

Scaramucci declined to be interviewed and left quietly through a side door.

“Maybe Trump was putting him up and he didn’t have time to check out yet. I guess as he’s not from D.C. he hasn’t got his own base. He was in and out so quickly. It’s incredible,” said one restaurant diner.

Pierson tweeted one success of the day from Scaramucci, he was apparently fired at 8 a.m. but managed to keep it quiet all day. “Apparently, he stopped the leaks,” she said of his single achievement in the position.

It was just a few months ago that municipalities were deciding for themselves when and if they would reopen. But Abbott shut it down, saying that his orders "overrule any local jurisdiction."

In April, "Abbott and the state’s other Republican leaders have blasted local officials in Dallas and Houston for what they called overzealous enforcement of COVID-19 regulations, first zeroing in on Democratically led Harris County’s decision to fine residents for not wearing face masks, a penalty Abbott banned in his April 27 reopening order," ProPublica reported. "The fights came to a head this month with the arrest of a Dallas hair salon owner who refused to shutter her business, an act of defiance that was supported by a right-wing group that launched a GoFundMe campaign a day before she reopened that raised $500,000 before it was disabled."

Published

on

On Thursday, Politico reported that it could take a decade for unemployment levels to return to where they were before the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

"The economic outlook for the next 10 years has 'deteriorated significantly' since the independent budget agency issued its last complete set of projections in January, CBO noted," reported Caitlan Emma. "That illustrates the devastating effects of the pandemic and underscores the reality of a slower economic recovery than the 'rocket ship' rebound predicted by President Donald Trump."
