Donald Trump announced this morning that Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci was hired as the new White House Communications Director, and Scarmucci’s first press briefing was pure propaganda.
Scaramucci has a past of criticizing Trump, and the Mooch quickly apologized for that. Then he went on to praise the president in a way more apt for North Korea’s “Dear Leader,” Kim Jong-un.
“I love the president. He’s the most competitive person I have ever met. I have seen this guy throw a dead spiral through a tire. He sinks three-foot putts. I don’t see this guy as someone who is ever under siege.”
Scaramucci also ended his first press conference with a kiss to the press corps.
