Vulgar ripping tirades

The latest victim wasn’t Sessions: it was not potus 45 letting rip. It was the guy who thinks he knows all about stinking fish – and vulgar tirades. The one who has been promoted director of communications – of all things.

First he was threatening the world, he would send the FBI after it, because financial and personal info Scaramouche wanted to sit on, got into the public domain. He tweeted “In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept #swamp @Reince45.

Turned out the leak came from none other than Scaramouche himself. Unfortunately, he has so far refrained from sending the FBI after himself. But the tweet made clear, this latest foghorn was after the White House’s Chief of Staff.

Not that Reince Priebus is the only one the mosquito is after. Where his buddy-boss is gunning for Sessions, the mosquito is after the blood of Priebus, Bannon – and a lot of others.

The Washington Post noted “… Anthony Scaramucci, a flashy New York financier who brags that he and Trump “started out as friends” — has been trying to oust White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in a foulmouthed campaign fueled by months of brewing animus. Scaramucci accused Priebus of leaking to the media about behind-the-scenes maneuverings and his own personal finances, but his broader intent is to purge senior advisers and low-level staffers …

In an interview with the New Yorker published Thursday, Scaramouch called Priebus a “fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac” and claimed that the former Republican Party chairman will “be asked to resign very shortly” in a sweep that he warned could eventually involve much of the staff.

The foul language made a lot of people blink and blink again. This is called communications? This is from a director of communications – a White House one?

In the meantime, with the new foghorn going from ballistic to totally ape, the Con was trying to spin things as “people using the press to shiv each other in the ribs“. Meanwhile, the horrible Hucks also spun, telling journalists “We’re working on health care“. Really girls?

Hucks apparently was still unaware Republican health care had been beyond the kiss of life – for weeks. It had turned into a zombie, flat on its face, soon to be buried a third time.

No worry: this latest White House reshuffle ensures the world will have no time to get bored. Some bloggers wonder if Scaramouche is actually cleared to work at this White House. Others still clamor for any clearances to be revoked in the case of Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump Kushner – and loads of other Trump-buddies.

Apart from the Russia probe refusing to be derailed, we now have the president going after his Attorney General and related officials, we have the new director of White House communications going after the White House Chief of Staff as well as Bannon and loads of other Trump-buddies. And this is just what’s out in the open, mind.

Scaramouche comparing relationships to “Cain and Abel”, sets the scene. With this show and its many diversions on the road, I’m not taking bets on who will get knifed in the back next; or how many characters will be murdered when, where, how soon in this stinking, fishy Trump admin.
