Anthony Scaramucci Says Steve Bannon Has White Nationalist "Tendencies"

Ousted White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci finally came face to face with his "Presidents Show" doppleganger, Mario Cantone, on "The View" Friday. He got very mad at me for going to Davos, Switzerland to speak at the World Economic Forum which was sanctioned by the communications team, ' Scaramucci said.

Scaramucci's self-initiated interview with a reporter, which included vulgar - or what he called "colorful" - language, and attacks on top Trump administration officials, led to his quick firing. And, he said he wouldn't engage in it. Scaramucci mused. "I would say that he has those tendencies". It doesn't work, and instead we get a second helping of Cantone's unfiltered, next-level jabs. We got to cut the nonsense now and get it together.

Scaramucci also admitted to calling Spicer "Liar Spice" when he worked at the White House.

"I would pick two", he said. "I love him. I give the man the shirt off my back if I didn't think he would get ketchup and self-tanner all over it". But, he said that other people in the administration referred to Spicer by the actress' name. "We might be normalizing you right now", she said to Scaramucci.

Scaramucci's time in the White House was brief, but he worked closely with the Trump campaign for several months.

"If you read Breitbart, there's a lot of that white national economic fervor", The Washington Times quotes Scaramucci as saying, referring to the website Bannon founded and is now working for again after his time at the White House. I would say that he has those tendencies.

"Is he a white nationalist?"

That being said, it isn't worth much, as evidenced by this somewhat uncomfortable appearance he made recently on The View. Some of that thankfully is [White House communications director] Hope Hicks and some of that is [chief of staff] John Kelly, but some of it is also the elimination of leakers.

Scaramucci, 53, found the surprise amusing - even declaring he liked Cantone's impression better than Bill Hader's on "Saturday Night Live".

Cantone then broke character to exclaim to Scaramucci, whose mother was sitting in "The View" audience, "This is horrifying that I have to do this in front of your mother!"
