Over the last several days, Trump and his former Communications Director, Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci, have called out one another on Twitter. After Trump’s continuous attacks on him, as well as others, and especially, after Trump’s disastrous response to the recent mass shootings, “The Mooch” suggested the GOP dump Trump and find another candidate.
In an interview with Axios, Scaramucci compared Trump to “a melting nuclear reactor.”
We are now in the early episodes of ‘Chernobyl’ on HBO, where the reactor is melting down and the apparatchiks are trying to figure out whether to cover it up or start the clean-up process,” Scaramucci said.
“A couple more weeks like this and ‘country over party’ is going to require the Republicans to replace the top of the ticket in 2020.”
“The Mooch” has donated thousands of dollars to Republican candidates, including Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He now says that if Trump “doesn’t reform his behavior, it will not just be me, but many others will be considering helping to find a replacement in 2020.”
Scaramucci has appeared on several cable news shows criticizing how Trump responded to the recent mass shooting and his visits to both Dayton and El Paso. He also called out Trump for his attacks on The Squad claiming that Trump is not a racist but sure is turning into one.
Trump was not pleased that his former employee of eleven days would act so disloyally and talk ill about him. In his usual fashion, Trump took to Twitter to launch an attack on “The Mooch.”
Scaramucci responded to Trump’s tweets and warned that Trump will eventually turn on everyone, including the country. Originally, Scaramucci deleted his tweet but restored it Sunday.
At this time, only former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld has announced he will challenge Trump in 2020 but former SC Governor and Congressman Mark Sanford is considering doing so as well.
On CNN this morning, Scaramucci claimed he’s neutral on the president and said, “The guy’s (Trump) dissembling a little bit and sounding more and more nonsensical”
