I don’t care about Anthony Scaramucci ever, and especially now

I don’t care about Anthony Scaramucci ever, but especially now

Driving the news: In a phone interview on Sunday afternoon, Scaramucci compared Trump to a melting nuclear reactor and said he may support a Republican challenger to Trump.

Granted, in a normal world, it would be noteworthy if a former Administration official publicly condemned the President they served under. 

But we aren’t in normal times and Scaramucci isn’t a normal former Administration official. He’s a dipshit con-artist, who infamously served as Communication Director for eleven days before John Kelly unceremoniously dumped him. His career both pre-and-post White House has been unremarkable. There is little reason to give him space in the news, especially for a EXCLUSIVE interview. 

The President is angry at him on Twitter, sure, but when we are still reeling from two mass shootings, have an administration that has no response to the factors that keep causing mass shootings, and know that Trump loves changing narratives when they don’t suit him, should we really be letting that dictate news judgement? 

Who cares? Why should anyone care? This is stupid. This is a distraction.
