The Mooch

Anthony Scaramucci is a fascinating man.

Nicknamed “The Mooch”, Anthony is an American financier, entrepreneur, and political consultant who briefly served as the White House Director of Communications from July 21 to July 31, 2017.

Anthony grew up in Long Island, in a blue-collar family, attended Harvard Law School and then went on to create a career on Wall Street. Scaramucci first worked at Goldman Sachs’ investment banking, equities, and private wealth management divisions between 1989 and 1996. After leaving Goldman Sachs, he founded Oscar Capital Management, and in 2005, he founded the investment firm SkyBridge Capital.

Aside from Wall Street though, most of us know Anthony through his 11 insane and tumultuous days in The White House.

On July 21, 2017, Scaramucci was appointed White House Communications Director. Days into the job, Anthony provoked controversy after launching a strongly-worded attack on members of The Trump administration in an interview with The New Yorker‘s Ryan Lizza, that he believed was off the record. Eleven days after the announcement of his appointment, he was dismissed by the new White House Chief of Staff, John F. Kelly, at the recommendation of President Donald Trump.

Donald Trump Will Cause Irreparable Damage to the Country

Though being sacked and humiliated, he still stayed loyal to Donald Trump for two years. But now he’s ready to tell you his story. He says Washington is a place where politicians are bought, and if you don’t play by their rules, you are removed.

Once a Trump supporter, Anthony now has come out against Trump’s policies, especially when it comes to immigration and what happened in Charlottesville. He also believes Donald Trump will cause irreparable damage to the country.

I have a funny feeling we’ll be hearing from Anthony again. And I’ll be honest, he charmed the whole office.

But whether you are a Donald Trump supporter or not, this episode is important. I think you really need to sit down and listen to what Anthony Scaramucci has to say about Washington DC and politics.
