Who’s scared’a Scaramucci? It looks like many folks at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Why does it feel like a pit bull is on the prowl?
Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director who was brought in to bring order to a press shop in turmoil, called into CNN’s “New Day” on Thursday and all but blamed chief of staff Reince Priebus for leaking information.
In the remarkable interview, which lasted for more than a half hour, the developing power struggle inside the West Wing was on full display, with Scaramucci at one point warning that “the fish stinks from the head down.” Scaramucci, whose relationship with Priebus has been fraught since he was initially unable to secure a White House job after President Donald Trump’s election, did little to show his relationship with Priebus was changing and said it was up to the chief of staff to show he was not leaking.
