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.”

Boris Johnson ‘tremendously humiliated’ Donald Trump on a global scale at G-7 meeting: CNN analyst
United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson was one of President Donald Trump's favorite people to take over for Theresa May when she resigned this summer. But Johnson also mocked the U.S. president and humiliated him on a global scale, said New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi.
During a panel discussion on CNN Sunday, CNN's Ryan Lizza opened by saying that Johnson is in a tight spot as he's trying to negotiate Brexit while serving as an international leader to the G-7. Johnson also needs to negotiate a trade deal with Trump, but he clearly is going about it in the worst possible way.
‘That’s total nonsense’: Bill Kristol punches Santorum right between the eyes on Trump’s failing trade policy
CNN contributor Rick Santorum said he was personally offended on Sunday after conservative writer Bill Kristol attacked President Donald Trump's trade policy.
During a segment about Trump's trade war with China, Kristol noted that the president seems "demoralized" and "depressed."
"His economists have told him privately we're slowing down and we're at some risk of toppling into a recession," Kristol explained. "His political people have told him his numbers are going down not up."
The conservative writer pointed to Trump's racist attacks on black lawmakers as one mistake he has made.
