The Scaramucci Files (Part 2 of 4)

(You know the expression:  “The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.”  Well, they went awry on The Curmudgeon yesterday.  As you know by now, tough guy-legend-in-his-own-mind Anthony Scaramucci is now the former White House communications director, failing to last even ten days on the job.  But what a ten days they were!  The Curmudgeon, alas, had sat down last weekend and churned out four pieces about Scaramucci for this space – a veritable Anthony Scaramucci festival.   The first of those pieces appeared yesterday, and The Curmudgeon’s not going to let perfectly good (and snarky) material go to waste, so there’s a new item today, below, and there will be additional pieces on Wednesday and Thursday.  Think of them not as irrelevant and outdated (or as a sign of The Curmudgeon’s laziness) but as a tribute to an exceeding unusual development in the very troubled Trump administration:  a rare exercise of sound judgment.  Enjoy)

The only thing I ask Sarah — Sarah, if you’re watching, I love the hair and makeup person that we had on Friday, so I’d like to continue to use the hair and makeup person.

Because THAT’S what’s going to fix the incredible disconnect between the White House and the people whose job is to report on that White House and the people who want to know what their president is or isn’t doing.  (See it here.)
