White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci claims he doesn’t much care for people who stab others in the back.
Like establishment Republicans, for example.
Scaramucci was discussing the latest debate on repealing and replacing Obamacare and President Trump’s reaction to Republicans who refuse to carry out the will of their constituents.
Trump singled out Alaska senator Lisa Murkowski’s for her ‘no’ vote on Tuesday to bring up a senate debate on the health care bill.
The president criticized her on social media, saying she “let the Republicans, and our country, down.”
Senator @lisamurkowski of the Great State of Alaska really let the Republicans, and our country, down yesterday. Too bad!

Trump is right.
“The right thing to do is stand side-by-side with the president,” Scaramucci said, “so when you’re not doing that, imagine you’re a football coach in the locker room, do you think you’re gonna get chewed a little bit?”
He then continued to address other backstabbers in Washington, saying he’s “more of a front stabbing person.”
Via the Daily Caller:
“Should we expect more tweets like this?” cohost Ainsley Earhardt asked Scaramucci …
… Scaramucci, who is from New York himself and has spent a lot of time on Wall Street, explained that he doesn’t like Washington so much because instead of being up front, people try to hide their intentions.
“What I don’t like about Washington is that people don’t let you know how they feel,” he continued. “They’re very nice to your face and then they take a shiv or a machete and stab you in the back.”
“I’m a Wall Street guy, I’m more of a front stabbing person,” he concluded.

Since being named White House Communications Director, Scaramucci has been making waves due to his blunt, no-nonsense, Trump-esque approach, something sorely needed in the White House.
He made news earlier in the week when he warned leakers in the administration that they’d better stop or “I’m going to stop you.”
