Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Friday compared President Trump to the Rev. Jim Jones, the infamous cult leader who led over 900 people to their deaths in Jonestown, Guyana, in 1978.
“It’s like a hostage crisis inside the White House and the hostages have Stockholm Syndrome,” Scaramucci tweeted.
“Donald Trump as rev Jim Jones. When will it break?” he asked.

“He has gone past the bounds of normalcy on so many things,” Scaramucci said on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” Thursday night.
He warned that there are signs that the president has gone “full-blown crazy” and echoed his concerns that there is a “hostage crisis” with White House employees.
“They absolutely hate the guy’s guts, but they’re scared out of their minds,” Scaramucci said of unnamed Trump officials. “Look at what he did to me and my wife this week. He’s lighting me and my wife up on his 150 million Twitter, social media slash accounts.”
“I’m a private citizen,” he continued. “He may not have early-stage dementia but he has full blown early-stage fascism.”
"He has gone past the bounds of normalcy," says former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, who recently withdrew his support for President Trump. https://t.co/kqAUmVv6We pic.twitter.com/ohRcd6uI3l
