‘Despicable’ Trump’s attack on John Legend and Chrissy Teigen is ‘early stage fascism’: ex-White House official

Published

on

During an extensive interview on CNN’s “New Day,” former Trump White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci hammered Donald Trump for his ugly attack on singer John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, and said it was yet another indication of the president’s “dementia.”

Speaking with host Alisyn Camerota, the former friend and adviser was asked about the president’s late Sunday night tweets where he called author and model Teigen “filthy-mouthed.”

“Despicable stuff,” he immediately shot back

“Why is that despicable?” Camerota asked.

“Because he’s a private citizen, he’s a fellow citizen in the United States and his wife is a private citizen,” Scaramucci explained.

“Yeah but John Legend and Chrissy Teigen–,” Camerota attempted only to be cut off.

“You’re going to normalize it now? ” Scaramucci asked. “You’ve had 44 presidents. Have any of the other presidents in recent history, modern history gone after their private citizens whether they’re celebrities or not celebrities?”

“What you’re doing is normalizing it because of the last two and a half years this guy has acted like a bully, a crazy person against his fellow citizens,” he continued. “He may not have early-stage dementia but has early-stage fascism.”

“He’s gone after my wife, John Legend’s wife. If you want to go after me, no problem, I’m just a fellow citizen,” he added. “But, you know, I’m speaking out against you, go after me. You’re going to go after my wife? After John Legend’s wife? I mean, this guy is despicable, to use his own words, he’s a very, very bad guy.”

Scaramiucci later added, “The nastiness, the meanness. I mean, he’s in full Chernobyl meltdown mania.”

A senior economic and trade advisor to President Donald Trump has been busted for making up a person he can quote in his books and to justify his policies.

A shocking expose in The Chronicle of Higher Education revealed that Peter Navarro invented the name "Ron Vara," an anagram for Navarro, to justify his own opinions in his books.

The so-called Ron Vara has strong opinions, fortune-cookie-style quotes and an elaborate back story as "a military veteran and Harvard-trained economist who made seven figures in the stock market by investing in companies that do well during international crises," the report said.

CNN reporter Erica Orden revealed on Monday that Sale would no longer be working for Giuliani. No additional details were immediately available.

Sale's departure was announced soon after Giuliani said on Tuesday that he would not comply with subpoenas from House Democrats.
