Anthony Scaramucci defends brief White House stay in interview

Steve Bannon’s job in the White House could be in trouble. Again

Anthony Scaramucci, who was sacked after a tempestuous 11 days as the White House communications director, likened his job to a character in the movie "Pulp Fiction".

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has used his first television interview since his sacking to claim there are plotters inside the White House looking to oust US President Donald Trump. If the president wants to execute the legislative agenda that I think is so promising for the American people, the lower and middle-class people, the middle-class people then he has to move away from that sort Bannon-Bart nonsense.

He added that it's not serving the President's interests to still have that wing around.

Nevertheless, Scaramucci also indicated that this White House faces broader problems than a single adviser.

"I call him 'chief, '" Trump told reporters Friday at his Bedford, N.J., golf club.

Scaramucci reiterated that he felt the interview with Lizza was "off the record" and it was a "very deceitful thing" that Lizza did.

He went on to criticise the influence of Steve Bannon and the Breitbart website in the Trump administration.

Scaramucci's eventful 10-day tenure at the White House ended Jul. 31, days after he made lewd comments about Bannon and others in an interview with the New Yorker.

When discussing the influences that he thinks are impacting Trump, Scaramucci urged the president to take a more mainstream approach in order to sell his agenda. Republicans and Democrats immediately criticized Trump's lackluster condemnation.

Trump is very well aware of these elements, and he knows what to do with them, Scaramucci noted.

During the call, he called former chief of staff Reince Priebus a "f--ing paranoid schizophrenic". I'm accountable for the mistake. Federal law permits recording phone conversations if one party consents to the taping, and in Scaramucci's case, that person would be Lizza.
