Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was asked Sunday morning whether or not he thought President Donald J. Trump would develop a different level of hubris, humility and compassion for the more than 200,000 people who have died from COVID-19 now that he has become infected himself.
“Okay, so the short answer is no, Alex, and the longer answer is they haven’t even changed the optional mask protocol at the White House, so, no,” he said. “It’s not in his personality, but I think he’s very sick…those doctors are now part of the Trump reality distortion field. They’re either saying that stuff to comfort him, or they’re saying that stuff because he’s compelling them to say it, and the truth of the matter is he’s very sick. He’s not going to make it to the debate. Anyone who looks at this situation knows that, so it will be interesting as to what the campaign will do as a contingency plan given the fact the president is not going to make the debate next week.”
Scaramucci added, “Not only is he incapable of learning from it, he’s incapable of admitting a mistake and he’s incapable of apologizing. I think he apologized once and that was to the Pocahontas family for comparing Elizabeth Warren to Pocahontas. He’s not a guy to apologize to anybody.”
In recent days, Scaramucci has vocally called for Trump to drop out of his reelection campaign and resign from office.
“He still may be forced to drop out due to his health. We have no idea what’s going on with the brain fog or the lung damage as a result of COVID-19,” Scaramucci said. “If he really loved the country, he would drop out. He’s not physically or mentally capable of being the president anymore, and he would do that. But if he’s not going to do that and he gets some level of recovery in his mid-70’s suffering from COVID-19 with all the comorbidities, I hope the people give a landslide election to Joe Biden and we can get rid of him overall as president.”
He added, “I want him to get well, but I want him to go to Mar-a-Lago where he’s better suited to be a greeter at Mar-a-Lago than he is the President of the United States. Very good news, Alex. The polls are showing that, and we need to keep the pressure on and remind the American people that he has made the country weaker, sicker and poorer and he ignored the advice of epidemiologists and scientists, the result of which he couldn’t protect his family or his staff. I want to say something about the White House staff, which is anonymous to most people. Many of them are sick due to the dereliction of duty of the American president.”
Scaramucci added, “I know for a fact two that have fallen ill who want to remain anonymous as a result of what’s going on in their lives, but these are people who worked in the White House, in one case, over a decade, and they’re working for a man that would not abide by his own CDC’s protocols, a result of which loyal people serving in the White House have been sick because of him. I think people need to know that about him. He doesn’t care about anybody other than himself, and that’s why we’re in the predicament that we’re in. What I would say to the president is, please go home, get well so the nation can also heal. We need to heal from the catastrophe that you put upon us.”

Donald Trump vows he ‘will never concede’ in late night conspiracy-filled rant
Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential to President-elect Joe Biden, but is still refusing to concede.
White House aides reportedly convinced him to allow Biden to begin his transition by telling him he did not need to use the word "concede."
But that word appeared to be on his mind late Monday night.
"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.
Trump supporters are slowly coming to grips with his miserable defeat
This Monday was a reassuring day for democracy, but a devastating blow for supporters of President Donald Trump still holding out hope that he'll stay in office past January 2021.
Michigan certified the results of Joe Biden's victory, thwarting Trump's hope to overturn the outcome. And the General Services Administrator Emily Murphy finally provided Biden's team with the resources to fund his transition, a move even approved of by Trump himself, though he vowed to keep fighting:
Arizona Republican likens Trump’s loss to Japan getting nuked while losing WW II — but as a good thing
President Donald Trump on Monday allowed President-elect Joe Biden's transition to proceed -- while vowing he would never concede.
Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.
One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.
Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.
