Scaramucci: Bannon Has White Nationalist 'Tendencies' and a 'Messianic Complex'

"I would say that [Bannon] has those tendencies". So he's entitled to his opinion. "I love him. I give the man the shirt off my back if I didn't think he would get ketchup and self-tanner all over it".

"I'm not used to sticking around in any one place unless there's three hors d'oeuvres and a two drink minimum.", he joked. "I am an America first guy".

Scaramucci said that reports he called Spicer "Melissa McCarthy", a reference to the actress who portrayed Spicer on SNL, were inaccurate. But, he said that other people in the administration referred to Spicer by the actress' name.

The Mooch was then asked if he thinks Bannon is a white nationalist and he paused and slowly restated the question as if to buy himself some time. After naming a couple of Bannon's redeeming qualities, Scaramucci revealed that he thinks the former chief strategist "had a little bit of a messianic complex". "We might be normalizing you right now", she said to Scaramucci.

The circle of life for those in the current White House has grown past the initial hiring and firing stages, expanding to include a publicity tour where the formerly belittled and/or mocked attempt to rehabilitate their image after (or just cash-in on) their brief stint near the Oval Office. I would say that he has those tendencies. "If you read Breitbart there's a lot of that white nationalist economic fervor". Some of that thankfully is [White House communications director] Hope Hicks and some of that is [chief of staff] John Kelly, but some of it is also the elimination of leakers.

Anthony Scaramucci came face-to-face with Mario Cantone, the comedian who mercilessly mocked him on late-night TV, during an appearance on "The View" early Friday. You can see Scaramucci trying to get a word in as Cantone lets his inner Mooch loose, even trying to speak to the Mario underneath the impression.
