‘Like HuffPost but with shinier glasses’: Internet freaks out after Scaramucci teases his own news site
One-time White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci—who lasted all of ten days as Donald Trump’s employee—appears to have finally landed his post-administration gig: his very own media site.
Scaramucci teased the digital startup “Scaramucci Post” on Twitter Tuesday.

News that Scaramucci—who was dismissed after delivering a profanity-laden tirade about former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon (wherein he accused Bannon of whoring himself out for media attention and “trying to suck [his] own cock”)—is planning on starting his own news organization made its way across the Internet late Tuesday, in a rather predictable fashion.
