Twitter Has Something To Say About Trump"s Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci Quoting Disgraced Joe Paterno!

Once again, you just really can't make this stuff up.

As the White House Communications Director, you'd think Anthony Scaramucci would know better than to name drop Joe Paterno -- the disgraced football coaching legend who was fired from Penn State for his role in the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal -- when talking about "honor" and "dignity." But, here we are. On Thursday, Scaramucci called into CNN's New Day where he went on a rant suggesting his financial disclosure report was leaked, even though it was public information. Related: Sean Spicer's Post-White House Gig May Be Dancing With The Stars Donald Trump's adviser said: "Remember Joe Paterno? What would he say? ‘Act like you've been there before.' Act with honor and dignity and respect and hold the confidence of the presidency in his office." All of us: Wanna know the best part? "Act like you've been there before" is originally a Vince Lombardi (NOT JoePa) quote! LOLz! Ch-ch-check out Twitter's confused reactions (below)!! Anthony Scaramucci just positively quoted Joe Paterno--who, you know, condoned the rape of children--as a way of responding to criticism. 🙃 — Charles Clymer🏳️‍🌈 (@cmclymer) July 27, 2017 Of course, Anthony Scaramucci cited Joe Paterno as someone to emulate: Let's just hope the Trump Admin has the same happy ending. pic.twitter.com/NoCTDmOg1R — The Hoarse Whisperer (@HoarseWisperer) July 27, 2017 Scaramucci quoting Joe Paterno makes sense since his job for the foreseeable future will be covering up the wrongdoings of his coworkers — Juggalocialism (@UweBollocks) July 27, 2017 Yesterday Gooch compared Trump's effort to overturn ACA to Lincoln abolishing slavery, today he quoted Joe Paterno in reference to 'honor'. — BONGER (@jerweber) July 27, 2017 Anthony @Scaramucci says the White House staff should have the honor of Joe Paterno. Frankly I think they already do. — UndeadPaterno (@UndeadPaterno) July 27, 2017 You know the dumbest part about Scaramucci's "Joe Paterno" gaffe? "Act like you've been there before" is a VINCE LOMBARDI line. — Use Your Collusion I (@Notintheface1) July 27, 2017 This isn't even a Joe Paterno quote. It's been said by both Vince Lombardi and Bear Bryant. — Karisa Maxwell (@KarisaMaxwell) July 27, 2017 So White House Communications Director used a quote from Joe Paterno about honor and dignity. pic.twitter.com/alRITOsyfT — John C.

Donald Trump said his catch phrase (that already existed long before The Apprentice BTW) to The Mooch shortly after his controversially vulgar interview about the rest of the team went viral.

The White House communications director has backed out of his speaking engagements at Politicon this weekend following the fallout he's facing from a vulgar interview with the New Yorker. Organizers of the Pasadena event -- which gathers politicians, media personalities and celebrities -- had said earlier in the week that Scaramucci still planned to attend, even after being named Donald Trump's communications director last week. Of course, that was before his expletive-filled phone call with reporter Ryan Lizza, in which he bashed his White House colleagues, went public. Video: Late Night Rips Scaramucci Amid His White House Drama! According to a spokeswoman for the event, organizers were informed overnight that the Mooch would not be coming in the wake of the on-the-record interview. As we reported, Scaramucci went the fuck off earlier this week on the leak of his financial disclosure form, saying he reported it to the FBI and the Justice Department. On Thursday, Lizza reported that Scaramucci called him up the previous night and suggested the leakers were none other than White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, along with Trump's senior strategist (and alleged self dick sucker) Steve Bannon. Related: Twitter Outraged Over Scaramucci Quoting Joe Paterno! Scaramucci capped off the interview by threatening to fire the entire White House communications staff in his quest to root out leaks in the West Wing. Many F-bombs were dropped. As for this weekend, Scaramucci was set to speak in a series of panels, including one on the future of the Republican party and another called "Scaramucci ‘Splains." Apparently, the communications director has done enough ‘splainin for one week. [Image via C-SPAN.].....»»

Anthony Scaramucci"s Wife Wanted To Get Away From Him So Badly, She Filed For Divorce When She Was NINE MONTHS PREGNANT!

When you gotta get away from The Mooch, you REALLY gotta get away from The Mooch.

She [...] When you gotta get away from The Mooch, you REALLY gotta get away from The Mooch. According to a Saturday night report in Page Six, Anthony Scaramucci's wife filed for divorce three weeks ago -- when she was nine months pregnant -- after being fed up with her three-year marriage to the now-White House communications director. She filed the papers on July 6 in Nassau County, New York. Related: Anthony Is Too Scared To Go To Politicon Interview! It gets better, too -- Deidre Scaramucci gave birth to their son, James, on Monday night while Anthony was in West Virginia at an event with President Donald Trump, and reportedly Scaramucci didn't return home to visit the child all week. Not a great look for the Mooch... Scaramucci has also reportedly been verbally abusing Deidre, too. One source close to the situation said: "She's mad. They aren't really speaking right now. The [pain] runs deep. [Anthony] tells her she's not that smart, that he's out of her league." All this runs deep, too. The problem started when Deidre had their first child, and Anthony couldn't take her out on the town any more as arm candy: "The big shift began when Deidre went from being arm candy to [being a mother] and being unavailable for nights out [and hobnobbing]. That's when [Anthony's] decision to just continue his life as it was and leave her behind really started to take hold." But here's the best part of The Mooch's insane personality -- he can't wait for Saturday Night Live to make fun of him, and he's hoping Meryl Streep or Julia Roberts will be the one to play him on the show. WTF?! Does he know how SNL works??? Related: Trump Names General John F. Kelly As The New Chief Of Staff According to Eytan Sugerman, who co-owns a restaurant with Scaramucci, the new White House Communications Director is ready to be blasted on Saturday nights: "He's been asking everyone around him how he did [at his first press conference].

According to their sources, it was because of his "naked political ambition." That's one way to put it! Related: Anthony Drops Out Of Politicon Interview! An insider even dished: "Deidre has left him and has filed for divorce. She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C. She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits' end. She has left him even though they have two children together." Additionally, it's said Donald Trump has been a source of contention. The 38-year-old is believed to have donated $5,400 to the congressional campaign of Democrat Kathleen Rice, as well as $10,800 to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's presidential campaign, and $2,700 to Jeb Bush's. Sounds like she wanted anyone but Trump to win! On the other hand, her 52-year-old ex is reported to have been "hell-bent" on making his way into the White House. A Scaramucci pal also added: "Deidre is not a fan of Trump, and she hasn't exactly been on board and supportive of Anthony and his push to get back into the White House. Anthony is focusing on his children, his work for the president and the American people. There is nothing more important to him. I don't know who Deidre thought she was marrying but anyone who knows Anthony knows he's an ambitious man." We'll continue to update you with new details. [Image via Media Punch.].....»»

Following a recent interview with Scar (whose wife just filed for divorce), the Huffington Post reports: "Scaramucci realized that the inclusion of Guilfoyle would raise suspicion. He said he was aware that some associates and members of the media were gossiping about his friendship with the Fox host and feared this particular connection would only make matters worse. He said he took it as an attack.'" Trump confidant Roger Stone told the outlet Anthony and Kimberly "are very close friends but nothing more": "He is way too short for Kimberly."

When the Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots visited the White House in April, Tom Brady famously skipped out on the event. Video: ESPN Airs Controversial Fantasy Football Sketch Resembling A Slave Auction The Mooch wants everyone to know it definitely had nothing to do with lack of support for the President. So the former White House communications director totally made up some bullshit about the QB having dated Ivanka Trump! First he heavily implied that Gisele Bündchen had kept Tom from the White House: "My guess is, which is typical, there could be a little bit of jealousy there and protection and possession of Tom Brady, and she probably didn't want him to go." WTF? Jealousy of what?? That's when the Mooch dropped his stink bomb: "Maybe there was a relationship between him and Ivanka at some point. Maybe it was someone else, I don't know. I just think there was a possession that caused a rub." Really, Scaramucci? How disgusting. Obviously we would have known already if these two extremely famous people had dated. Related: Gisele's Message For Tom Brady's 40th Birthday Is The Cutest Thing But even beyond common knowledge, we already have outright denials. People spoke with sources who called what Scaramucci was suggesting "completely false" and total "bullshit." Besides, if there were anything there, he'd outright say it. He's using insinuation because he knows everything he's saying is utter bullshit. It's just more propaganda from the Liar-in-Chief. And sadly now so many people will just add it to their narrative as part of the real truth that's being hidden from them. [Image via Patricia Schlein/WENN.].....»»

On Friday night, Trump was holding [...] What could the President of the United States of America possibly have to gain by fighting with the NFL?? Well, when you're talking about Donald Trump, there actually are a couple good reasons. (And by "good" we mean horrific.) Let's rewind. Related: Like John Oliver Did Last Night For Megyn Kelly -- OUCH! On Friday night, Trump was holding a rally in Alabama -- yes, our sitting president who has been in office less than a year regularly holds campaign-style rallies to inflate his ego -- in which he made some inflammatory remarks about protesting football players. In short, he said NFL owners should fire the players who kneel during the National Anthem. And he said it in the crudest way: "Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He's fired. He's fired!'" Yep. Our president used an expletive in a public speech attacking private citizens who are peacefully protesting. Though he didn't mention Colin Kaepernick by name, he is at the vanguard of this controversy. So his mom responded to the "son of a bitch" comment with an AMAZING quip: Guess that makes me a proud bitch! — Teresa Kaepernick (@B4IleaveU) September 23, 2017 It should be noted in that same speech he also rattled off the opinion that penalties for hitting too hard, installed to protect players from concussions, are "ruining the game." Shortly after this, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry was so offended by this (and presumably everything that came before) he decided not to attend the traditional visit by the NBA champs to the White House. In response, Trump officially, publicly disinvited him. CLICK HERE FOR MORE! Guy. Everyone knows you can't un-invite someone after they said they weren't coming! It turns you from a loser into an ANGRY loser. Even middle school student body presidents wouldn't make that mistake. Damn. Or as LeBron James put it: U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up! — LeBron James (@KingJames) September 23, 2017 Ha! But Trump had moved on from a feud with a specific player. He decided he wanted to take on the entire NFL. On Saturday, Drumpf doubled down: If a player wants the privilege of making millions of dollars in the NFL,or other leagues, he or she should not be allowed to disrespect.... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 ...our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU'RE FIRED. Find something else to do! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 If you haven't seen it, longtime sports journalist Bob Costas gave an epic response to this argument, pointing out that peaceful protest and dissent are some of the most patriotic things you can do in a free country. CLICK HERE FOR MORE After NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Trump's comments showed an "unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players," Trump responded: Roger Goodell of NFL just put out a statement trying to justify the total disrespect certain players show to our country.Tell them to stand! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 23, 2017 On Sunday, he actually encouraged his followers to boycott watching the games: If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2017 This is clearly on very shaky ground ethically -- the POTUS directing people to boycott a private American business -- and he's already had a complaint filed against him with the Office of Government Ethics. Oh, and if you're like us and know to look for the tweet from Barack Obama's presidency that proves Trump is being a total hypocrite about this, look no further: President should not be telling the Washington Redskins to change their name-our country has far bigger problems! FOCUS on them,not nonsense — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 8, 2013 Every time. So on Sunday when it came time for football players to stand for the National Anthem, all eyes were on their reactions, which... varied. At latest count more than 200 players league-wide didn't stand for the anthem. Trump's friend Tom Brady doesn't have his back. The Pittsburg Steelers didn't show up on the field at all! CLICK HERE FOR MORE Trump was so unhappy about all this he may even have snuck a lewd gesture onto live TV. You can decide that one for yourself. Trump was undeterred. Obviously. But on Monday morning, he did tweet a clarification, as once again he didn't like being called out as a racist: The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2017 Except it DOES have to do with race. You can't say the intent of these players has nothing to do with race when they're flat-out saying it's about race. It's about injustice along racial lines, specifically when it comes to police brutality. Police keep getting away with killing unarmed black citizens. But the surge in players kneeling this Sunday was in unity AGAINST Trump's awful comments attacking players and their freedom of speech. We know because THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT IT! And they aren't alone. Many celebrities have come out in support of the protesting. CLICK HERE FOR MORE So with all of this support on the other side, for the NFL, for freedom of speech, for African Americans looking for justice, why would Trump take the position he's taking? Two reasons: 1. His Base We already know by Trump's inability to condemn the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, equating the white supremacists with those counter-protesting, that Trump is unwilling to go against his base. Let's be honest here. Trump ran on a platform of hate. He painted Mexicans as criminals as he threw his hat in the ring. He regularly fans the flames of Islamophobia. His wall, aside from being completely idiotic, is as xenophobic a policy as we've ever heard. The first time he even dipped his toe into the political world was to declare Obama wasn't really an American. So his core supporters, the ones he's courted from the beginning, are racists. And he can't lose them. They're all he has left. Besides the cowardly Republican party that let him hijack them we mean. 2. Ego Trump KNOWS so much of this is about him. He's the one who is embarrassing and demeaning our country, he's the one making us all look bad, he's the one emboldening Nazis. It's 2017, and we have a Nazi problem! Let that soak in. He's making every problem with our country worse. So as the leader of the United States, he takes it as a personal slight when players kneel during its anthem, when they don't stand for the flag. And we know how he reacts to criticism. And he's petty enough to start a war with an organization like the NFL over it. So there you go. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Late Night Hosts Bid Farewell To Fired Anthony Scaramucci With Jokes — And SINGING!

After meeting Anthony Scaramucci last month, we couldn't wait for all the shenanigans the My Cousin Vinny of White House communications directors would bring to the political media!

But when Donald Trump recasted fired the human pastrami just 10 days after naming his new title, late night hosts -- and all of us, really -- were forced to say goodbye to the Mooch long before they wanted to. Related: Couple Literally Gets Divorced Because Of Trump! On The Daily Show, Trevor Noah likened Scaramucci's short White House stint to the "song of the summer," pointing out he "made everyone obsessed with him for, like, a week… then he left us with nothing but memories and, like, a bunch of weird moves." Of course, Seth Meyers went off on the staff shake up on Late Night, noting that Scaramucci's firing wasn't nearly as embarrassing as Reince Priebus'. But the best sendoff came from Stephen Colbert, who gave the Mooch a musical tribute with a new rendition of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody that will truly send shivers down your spine. Say goodbye to Moochie by watching the funny clips (below)! [Image via Comedy Central/CBS/NBC.].....»»
