Scaramucci Gets Into Email War With Priebus - Quickly Regrets It

It’s been an eventful week and a half in the life of Anthony Scaramucci. For starters, he was surprisingly tapped to be the new communications director at the White House. Press secretary Sean Spicer resigned soon thereafter, and Scaramucci quickly hopped behind the podium to inform the press that there was a new sheriff in town. Scaramucci absolutely crushed it, coming across as calm, cool and collected while delivering answers to questions. That was the high point, as things came crashing down from that point.

Scaramucci would proceed to hop around the talk show circuit to puff out his chest while promising to expose White House leakers. That culminated in a profanity-laced tirade he dropped on a reporter, and Scaramucci quickly learned the importance of noting whether things were on or off the record when speaking to the press. Reports emerged later that week that his wife had filed for divorce. White House chief of staff Reince Priebus resigned on Friday, and President Donald Trump tapped John Kelly to fill that slot. Scaramucci resigned on Monday.

Scaramucci’s epic crash-and-burn routine has TV movie written all over it. While waiting for the inevitable announcement that one is in the works, additional insight into the man they call Mooch has started to make the rounds. As the Independent Journal Review shares, Scaramucci was duped by an email prankster over the weekend. He thought the emails were coming from Priebus, and it seems like he didn’t hesitate to respond.

“I had promised myself I would leave my hands mud free, but after reading your tweet today which stated how; 'soon we will learn who in the media who has class, and who hasn't', has pushed me to this,” the email from ‘Priebus' read. “That tweet was breathtakingly hypocritical, even for you. At no stage have you acted in a way that's even remotely classy, yet you believe that's the standard by which everyone should behave towards you? General Kelly will do a fine job. I'll even admit he will do a better job than me. But the way in which that transition has come about has been diabolical. And hurtful. I don't expect a reply.”

The Mooch would quickly defy expectations, and a back and forth ensued.

“You know what you did. We all do. Even today. But rest assured we were prepared. A Man would apologize,” he wrote.

“I can't believe you are questioning my ethics! The so called 'Mooch', who can't even manage his first week in the White House without leaving upset in his wake. I have nothing to apologize for,” countered faux Priebus.

“Read Shakespeare. Particularly Othello. You are right there. My family is fine by the way and will thrive. I know what you did. No more replies from me,” Scaramucci wrote.

Alas, the emails have been exposed as coming from a self-professed ‘email prankster’ in the UK. In fairness to the Mooch, other White House officials have reportedly fallen for fake emails from the prankster as well. Either way, it’s a fitting end to his painfully short tenure in the Trump White House.
