Ruhle and Scaramucci Go At It in Wild Interview: ‘You Said Steve Bannon Tries to Suck His Own Penis’

Michael Wolff’s juicy tell-all about President Donald Trump and his administration has captured headlines this past day. So many, as a matter of fact, that Trump was forced to pull out the big gun to defend him on television. That’s right. Former 10-day White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is back.

Scaramucci, who for one beautiful moment convinced the entire country to address him as “The Mooch,” first stopped by CNN to tell Steve Bannon to “get back” to his therapist after it was revealed he referred to Donald Trump Jr. as “unpatriotic.”

That was just the appetizer for the main course — a wild and wooly interview with Stephanie Ruhle on MSNBC.

Ruhle started by asking Scaramucci if he felt “vindicated” now that his one-time nemesis Bannon has been thrown off his perch.

“I don’t necessarily feel vindicated as much as I would like Steve to knock it off and rejoin the team,” he said. “He needs to knock it off.”

Did Ruhle follow that by bringing up that one time Scaramucci told The New Yorker that Bannon likes to “suck his own cock?” Of course she did!

“Anthony, you said six months ago that you think Steve Bannon tries to suck his own penis,” she said. “And now you’re saying he should get on board and get on the team?”

“MSNBC. My favorite network,” Scaramucci replied. “You wanna talk about that? Let’s talk about that.”

“I think I have the right read on the guy. There are two things you can do with a guy like that. You can either excise him and shun him, which I don’t think is the best recommended strategy, or you can tell him to knock it off and bring him back in the fold.”

The pair found themselves in a back-and-forth over whether or not Trump Jr. should have contacted the FBI instead of attending the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, which led to Scaramucci using the phrase “Monday morning quarterback” repeatedly.

“Don’t be a Monday morning quarterback,” he said. “At the end of the day, we all say we are going to do certain things and then certain other things happen.”

“It’s called a mistake. It’s not called treason. Let’s talk about it for what it is. Let’s not triple guess people and do the whole Monday morning quarterback thing.”

Scaramucci also called Michael Wolff, author of the tell-all, “unattractive intellectually.”
