Anthony Scaramucci hasn’t even had his job for a week and he’s already causing problems for the White House. Aside from his already-infamous New Yorker interview, he also claimed that his financial disclosures were ‘leaked” to Politico. The only issue with his complaint is that the disclosures are public record. They can’t be “leaked.”
To defend Scaramucci, the White House sent original spinster Kellyanne Conway to Fox & Friends to try and dig Scaramucci out of the embarrassing statement by throwing herself under the bus (her go-to move).
“There are so many qualified men and women who wanted to serve this president, this administration and their country who have been completely demoralized and completely, I think, disinclined to do so, based on the paperwork that we have to put forward, divesting assets, the different hoops you have to run through,” Conway said. “This White House is transparent and accountable, and we’ve all complied with those rules, but it has disincentivized good men and women. I hope it doesn’t disincentivize Anthony.”
Yep, adhering to basic ethical procedures is really going to discourage “good” people from working in the government.
“He’s making clear that even though the documents are eventually procurable publicly, that somebody doesn’t want him here, and somebody is trying to get in his way and scare him off from working here, which is a huge mistake,” Conway also said, trying to justify Scaramucci’s paranoia and ignorance.
