”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,’” Trump Tweeted on Saturday.

The president added, “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. Anthony, who would do anything to come back in, should remember the only reason he is on TV, and it’s not for being the Mooch!”

Not surprisingly, Scaramucci also took to Twitter in response. ”For the last 3 years I have fully supported this President. Recently he has said things that divide the country in a way that is unacceptable. So I didn’t pass the 100% litmus test,” the high-profile hedge fund manager pointed out. “Eventually he turns on everyone and soon it will be you and then the entire country.”

He added, “To those asking, “what took so long?” You’re right. I tried to see best in @realDonaldTrump based on private interactions and select policy alignment. But his increasingly divisive rhetoric – and damage it’s doing to fabric of our society – outweighs any short-term economic gain.”

Scaramucci appeared last week on the TV panel show “Real Time with Bill Maher,” whose host is notorious for badmouthing conservatives. Among his comments: “I do try to defend [Trump], but there are certain things he’s done that are absolutely indefensible.”

On MSNBC last week, Scaramucci criticized Trump for personally meeting with victims of the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas. He said, ”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.”

The mass shootings in Ohio and Texas that killed 31 people “have fueled criticism that Trump hasn’t done enough to stem gun violence and has instead fostered extremism,” Yahoo reported. “Trump visited hospitals in each city last week, excluding press from those visits but releasing campaign-style photos and videos. Scaramucci said in a cable television interview Thursday that Trump drew negative news coverage of his trip because he made the hospital visits about himself rather than about comforting the gun massacre victims.”

“So, look, the president didn’t do well on the trip. He probably would be mad at somebody for saying that,” he said on MSNBC.
