Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci fired back at President Trump after Trump lashed out at his criticism of the White House.
“For the last 3 years I have fully supported this President,” Scaramucci said on Twitter. “Recently he has said things that divide the country in a way that is unacceptable. So I didn’t pass the 100% litmus test. Eventually he turns on everyone and soon it will be you and then the entire country.”

After years of ardent support for the president, Scaramucci told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Thursday that Trump’s visits with victims and families in El Paso and Dayton was a “catastrophe” and a failed attempt at demonstrating empathy.
“Maybe he’ll tweet something negative about somebody for saying he didn’t do well, but the facts are he did not do well on the trip because if the trip is being made about him and not the demonstration of compassion and love and caring and empathy for those people, then it becomes a catastrophe for him, the administration, and it’s also a bad reflection on the country,” Scaramucci said Thursday.
Scaramucci’s prediction that the president “would be mad” for criticizing his visits soon came to fruition, as Trump mocked him in a tweet Saturday night.
“Anthony Scaramucci, who was quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling, now seems to do nothing but television as the all time expert on ‘President Trump.’ Like many other so-called television experts, he knows very little about me other than the fact that this Administration has probably done more than any other Administration in its first 2 1/2 years of existence,” Trump tweeted.
