New WH Communications Director Threatens Priebus, Staff in Vulgar Rant

Chaos erupted within the Trump administration Thursday after newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci launched into a vulgar rant against White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

According to The New Yorker, Scaramucci called Priebus “a f—–g paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac” in an interview with a reporter regarding a leak.

The millionaire investor asked New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza how he learned about a dinner he had Wednesday at the White House with the president, Fox News host Sean Hannity and former Fox News exec Bill Shine, and when he refused to divulge his source, Scaramucci said he’d fire the White House communications staff.

“They’ll all be fired by me,” he reportedly said of the staff. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus — if you want to leak something — he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.”

Scaramucci went on to disparage Steve Bannon, lewdly accusing the chief Trump strategist of self-aggrandizing in the profanity-laden tirade, which was published Thursday in the New Yorker story.

For his part, Scaramucci didn’t back off the comments, though he expressed regret about his choice of words.

“I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for @realDonaldTrump’s agenda,” he tweeted Thursday. “I made a mistake in trusting in a reporter. It won’t happen again.”
