Anthony Scaramucci escalated the ongoing feud he’s having with President Donald Trump to whole new levels during a CNN appearance Wednesday.
When speaking about his “bullying” behavior, the former Trump White House aide said that the president is a “nervous wreck” after watching the stock market flounder under his failed economic policies.
“I think they need to say it’s personal because the president came after me, okay,” he began. “But it’s about demagoguery for me. I told my wife, I can defend nine out of ten things related to the president maybe eight out of ten, but a demagogue needs a blind obligation to loyalty…This guy is not normal.”
He said that he knows what happened to make Trump go after him. Instead of listening to the full context of what he said, someone from the communications department in the White House showed the president clips of Scaramucci saying one thing or another that was critical and now he’s waging a war.
“He says, ‘Okay I’m the big presidential bully I’m going to hit this guy and show everybody what a bully I am. That will shut this guy up,'” Scaramucci said of Trump’s thought process. “But this guy is obviously — he is using the presidency. He has done it to you, Maggie [Haberman], me. He is using the presidency to bully his fellow citizens. It’s a disgusting act one of the most anti-American things a people can do is bully people.”
“But it’s demagoguery and, okay he is a proven demagogue and obviously going off the rails now,” Scaramucci continued. “He is a totally unstable, nervous wreck. Last night, sweating like a pig. Let’s just call it for what it is.”

He ‘can’t understand why he is being impeached’: CNN reports Trump is asking ’why are they doing this to me?’
President Donald Trump is reportedly "distracted" by impeachment while vacationing at Mar-a-Lago as the United States Senate trial begins.
"A source close to the White House who speaks to Donald Trump regularly said the President has appeared 'distracted' by the impeachment trial that begins on Tuesday, telling people around him Friday night at Mar-a-Lago that he 'can't understand why he is impeached,'" CNN's Jim Acosta reported Saturday.

Rod Rosenstein’s legal defense in lawsuits from Strzok and Page won’t hold up under oath: legal experts
Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein claimed responsibility for the release of text messages between then-FBI attorney Lisa Page and then-FBI official Peter Strzok.
Emails released in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) revealed the highly unusual release by Sarah Isgur Flores, who at the time was the spokesperson for Trump's Department of Justice (she is now overseeing CNN's 2020 election coverage).
Flores instructed reporters to not cite the release of the documents to the Depart of Justice.
GOP forcing Hunter Biden to testify could ‘completely backfire’ on them — here’s why
With public pressure mounting for Senate Republicans to allow officials like former National Security Adviser John Bolton and White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to testify at President Donald Trump's impeachment trial, some in the GOP are now suggesting a trade — allowing these witnesses in exchange for Hunter Biden, the focus of Trump's Ukraine conspiracy theories, to take the stand as well and face aggressive questioning about his role in Burisma. This is a GOP attempt to distract from the allegations against Trump by changing the subject to the Bidens.
But as CNN's Michael Smerconish noted on Saturday, this strategy might not even work.
