Scaramucci is too short.

From "Why The Mooch Lost His Cool/Anthony Scaramucci tells HuffPost about the highs and lows of his fiery stint at the White House and what that cuss-filled rant was really about":

There's this:
From the beginning of his time in the Trump White House, way back on July 20, critics said that Scaramucci was too similar to Trump, too eager to be on TV, to last...

“If you were 7 inches taller, I’d be worried,” Trump told Scaramucci, according to someone familiar with the conversation who asked not to be named quoting the president....
And this:
Scaramucci strongly denies having a sexual relationship with [Kimberly] Guilfoyle. [Roger] Stone, a friend of Guilfoyle’s, explained that Scaramucci and Guilfoyle “are very close friends but nothing more.” He added, “He is way too short for Kimberly.” ...
If you're wondering: He's 5'8".

And this is interesting, about his last day at the White House. In a "very polite conversation," John Kelly demanded his resignation. After that, he spoke, by telephone, with Ivanka, Jared Kushner, and President Trump: "All were gracious, he said. 'The president told me he knows I have his back, but he has to try to tighten the ship.'"

Asked what he's going to do now, he said: "I am now going to go dark." Later? "Then I will reemerge... As me.”

So he can do the fandango but he's too short to do the Guilfoyle?

This

according to someone familiar with the conversation who asked not to be named quoting the president....

Enough with the "asked not to be named." Enough!

Kevin said...

I don't know where else to put this: Marco Rubio just said on Fox that two Venezuelans were arrested in the middle of the night for putting up a YouTube video if you can believe that.

Yes Marco, we can believe it.

"asked not to be named"

Oh, it was probably Scaramucci, just saying don't attach my name to that.

William said...

He's good looking, and he enjoys being on television. His going dark will not last much longer than an eclipse. We'll be seeing lots more of Scaramucci.

Bay Area Guy said...

I have only 1 question to ask:

Scaramouch, Scaramouch, will you do the Fandango?

Proving once again that Moby-Dick is the universal book, containing all things:

So soon as this figure had been first descried, Stubb had exclaimed -- "That's he! that's he! the long-togged scaramouch the Town-Ho's company told us of!" Stubb here alluded to a strange story told of the Jeroboam, and a certain man among her crew, some time previous when the Pequod spoke the Town-Ho. According to this account and what was subsequently learned, it seemed that the scaramouch in question had gained a wonderful ascendency over almost everybody in the Jeroboam. His story was this:

He had been originally nurtured among the crazy society of Neskyeuna Shakers, where he had been a great prophet; in their cracked, secret meetings having several times descended from heaven by the way of a trap-door, announcing the speedy opening of the seventh vial, which he carried in his vest-pocket; but, which, instead of containing gunpowder, was supposed to be charged with laudanum. A strange, apostolic whim having seized him, he had left Neskyeuna for Nantucket, where, with that cunning peculiar to craziness, he assumed a steady, common sense exterior and offered himself as a green-hand candidate for the Jeroboam's whaling voyage. They engaged him; but straightway upon the ship's getting out of sight of land, his insanity broke out in a freshet. He announced himself as the archangel Gabriel, and commanded the captain to jump overboard. He published his manifesto, whereby he set himself forth as the deliverer of the isles of the sea and vicar-general of all Oceanica.

"John Kelly demanded his reservation."

Oops. Fixed. Thanks.

Sebastian said...

The real question is if Kelly talked to Jared and Ivanka. If he doesn't control the family, there will be no tight ship.

CStanley said...

If he doesn't control the family, there will be no tight ship.

I find it hard to believe that leaks might be coming from Jared and Ivamka, except for leaks that Trump would want to put out.

The only one that might have made sense was the alleged leak of Don Jr.'s meeting, because of the timing of Jared having made an amendment to his discosure document.

But generally speaking, it makes no sense for the Kushner to do anything that would harm Ivanka's father because they have no future without him.

Guilfoyle? I think they misspelled Gilfoyle.

Gilfoyle - what do I do?

Jim Gust said...

I can't believe scaramooch is already talking to reporters again. did he promise to not do that?

Feste said...

He's not too short. Just not Bogart.

tcrosse said...

He's not too short: his legs reach the ground.

clint said...

But how big are his hands?

mockturtle said...

William opines: He's good looking, and he enjoys being on television.

This seems to be the male opinion here. Any women here besides me who dispute that Mooch is 'good looking'.

mockturtle said...

Annie C. calls fake news:

according to someone familiar with the conversation who asked not to be named quoting the president....

Indeed. Trump probably never made such a comment to Scaramucci or, if he did, it was as a wisecrack.

Spriggan-little (daughter) and Mistress Mine (mother) overheard recently talking together in the kitchen about Mooch.

Mistress Mine: “he lost his identity and his ego dissolved inside his wife’s vagina.”

Spriggan-little: “aren’t they divorcing? - shouldn’t she get an appraisal of her vagina? - see what it’s worth if he is still lost inside?”

Earnest Prole said...

He's small but perfectly formed, just like Trump's hands.

hstad said...

This guy is an idiot about politics! First he gives a ranting interview to "The Atlantic" full of salty language. Afterwards he gives a post mortem to Huff-Po. This definitely exhibits a lack of common sense. His wife filing for divorce made a good choice.

Bob Boyd said...

Maybe the Mooch didn't suck his own cock, but he did fuck himself.

mockturtle said...

Maybe the Mooch didn't suck his own cock, but he did fuck himself.

Yep. ;-)

gadfly said...

Kimberly Guilfoyle is 5'7" - so The Mooch will have to wear lift shoes to make up for her spike heels.

GRW3 said...

Anybody else think this might have all been planned? The Mooch being a hand grenade that Trump lobbed in over the transom? Flash! Bang! Shock and Awe? Then send Kelly in to take a commanding position. I wonder if he made varying outrageous statements, too juicy to pass up, to different people to help calibrate the leak detection.

tcrosse said...

A local TV political consultant opined that Mooch was a Wall Street trigger man Trump brought in to do some wet work for him, and then disappear, to pave the way for Kelly.
Kabuki.

walter said...

Well..he was..until very recently..married.
I think Guilfoyle is likely more attractive on camera with makeup troweled on than i the morning..
Though..there is that mouth of hers..Sir Spatula?
