‘Donald Trump is the virus’: Former WH communications chief says the president is ‘very insane’
Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is blasting President Donald Trump, likening his former boss to the coronavirus.
“Donald Trump is the virus,” Scaramucci said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Monday.
“At the end of the day what he has done is, he’s effected and replicated through the executive branch and he’s destroyed the crisis management elements of the executive branch that we need right now, not only here in the United States, but globally.”
Scaramucci, who is also an investment banker, said the federal government is going to need to “literally hand out free money to people to help them afford their rent, help them pay their waiters and waitresses in their closed restaurants.”
He calls it “a national tragedy born from one person,” noting “the President’s staff is afraid of him, and they don’t like dealing with him, and so they’re trying to make something that’s very insane, which is President Trump, sound sane.”
