Scaramucci: Bannon Has White Nationalist 'Tendencies' and a 'Messianic Complex'

Scaramucci: Bannon Has White Nationalist 'Tendencies' and a 'Messianic Complex'

Scaramucci, who worked as the White House communications director for 11 days in July, appeared on "The View" and addressed several topics related to the White House staff, President Donald Trump, and the presidential campaign.

Scaramucci said that reports he called Spicer "Melissa McCarthy", a reference to the actress who portrayed Spicer on SNL, were inaccurate. "I love him. I give the man the shirt off my back if I didn't think he would get ketchup and self-tanner all over it".

"He got very mad at me for going to Davos Switzerland to speak at the World Economic Forum", Scaramucci said.

The Mooch was then asked if he thinks Bannon is a white nationalist and he paused and slowly restated the question as if to buy himself some time. He told the co-hosts on "The View" that he was offered the White House communications director job on January 17, "and then there were all kinds of cockamamie stories that came out that delayed my arrival into the administration". "If you read Breitbart there's a lot of that white nationalist economic fervor". "She looks just like my family", Cantone said, thanking her for "birthing" him.

That being said, it isn't worth much, as evidenced by this somewhat uncomfortable appearance he made recently on The View. When asked point blank by Joy Behar who the "most annoying, awful person in the Oval Office" was, the Mooch did not skip a beat before naming two individuals: Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus.

According to Deadline, Scaramucci added that Bannon is a "great speechwriter" with "great linguistic skills", but he "has a little bit of messianic complex".

"How did you think I got along with Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon, did you think that was a good relationship?" he deadpanned. What was I supposed to do have facials with Steve Bannon? "I had zero friends in the white house". "Don't make me slap you in front of company". The two got along fabulously, and Cantone gave a nod to Scaramucci's mother, who was in attendance.
