On Tuesday’s edition of CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” Republican strategist and Never Trump conservative Rick Wilson blasted President Donald Trump for his petty feud with former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci
“I think Anthony gambled, went all-in on Trump,” said Wilson. “He spent the last year and a half trying to find a way back into a sense of having Trump’s ear and of course, once Trump shanked him, he was shanked. He was done. He was bleeding out on the floor never going to come back.”
“Is it putting your finger up in the wind? I don’t know,” said Wilson. “But as Anthony found, the shocking revelation that Donald Trump is a faithless person in every dimension, the guy cheated or shanked every person in his life, wives, contractors, business partners, clients, the country and so the shocking revelation Trump is a bad dude, maybe Anthony isn’t that quick. There is no coming back after this guy puts you in the dirt and after you committed everything to him, you’re going to get screwed over.”
“You know, it’s ironic, Anderson, because I looked at Fox clips from when Anthony was named as communications director, and they thought he was the greatest thing since spicy mustard. They thought it would be an amazing change. He’s an unperson.”
“Unperson,” chortled Cooper.
“My guess is Scaramucci is the only one that’s actually been in a fight,” added Wilson. “I doubt President Trump has ever, you know, hit anybody, I don’t know if Anthony Scaramucci has. My money would be on — if I had to hide behind someone in a fight, I would hide behind Anthony Scaramucci. Donald Trump is a soft-handed manbaby. He’s never taken a punch.”
Watch Anderson Cooper use the long-form of ‘BS’ while shutting down Rod Blagojevich on CNN
MSNBC anchor Anderson Cooper was visibly angered by claims made by former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich during a Friday evening CNN interview.
Blogojevich was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison for corruption while in office that included attempting to sell the U.S. Senate seat vacancy created when Barack Obama was elected president. His sentence was commuted by President Donald Trump.
Cooper lectured Blogojevich for getting sued while governor over a backlog of 3,000 clemency cases.
The CNN anchor described it as "a little ironic and frankly a little sad and pathetic and hypocritical."
Trump is trying to turn the intel community into his ‘propaganda arm’ with new power grab: Ex-CIA operative
President Donald Trump is reportedly consolidating his hold over key U.S. government agencies by appointing staunch loyalists who will work to push out officials who give the president inconvenient information.
Former CIA operative Robert Baer on Friday told CNN's Kate Bolduan that Americans should be greatly concerned about Trump's efforts to push out career intelligence officials who aren't personally loyal to him, as he said it could fundamentally distort the information that Americans receive.
