Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci‘s explosive interview with the The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza last Thursday ultimately led to his firing just 10 days after being named to the post. Now, audio of the interview has just been released featuring all the ‘colorful’ language that ended his brief stint in a top White House position.
In the segment posted below, The New Yorker’s David Remnick revisits the interview along with Lizza.
“So many politicians believe when they’re failing, they believe that the real problem is just a communications strategy—that if only the American public heard and saw what the most loyal supporters saw in the President, everything would be solved,” Lizza says. “‘Let Trump be Trump’ is the cliché, right? That was Scaramucci’s communications strategy, and I think that’s how he helped convince the President that he should take over the communications shop, even though he had no experience doing this.”
According to Lizza, the problem isn’t the people Trump has surrounded himself with; the problem is Trump himself.
“What’s dysfunctional about Trumpworld all stems from Donald Trump.”
