Anyway, you realize Mooch himself was leaking in this conversation, right? They all do it.
Eh, but a lot of Italian guys were in that scene. Scaramucci fits the bill.

Well, that's certainly true. Scaramucci IS apparently close to Trump.

Now you know how it happens. No "deep state" conspiracy involved - just stupid and arrogant Trump appointees, otherwise known as the best people.

True, I would definitely say Italians were overrepresented in that crowd. But it's not exclusive to them or anything. I kind of think of it as the NYC version of bros - with more jewelry. LOL

Conservatives have always been pathetic hypocrites when it comes to morals and values. The highest rates of pornography (gay and straight) are in the Bible belt for example.

Who usually gets caught with gay prostitutes? Gay-hating Republicans.

It's called reaction formation. They do the things they claim to hate the most.

Ditto. These guys live like this in NYC. I see them all the time in the Hamptons.

He actually sounds even more deranged than Trump, which is incredible, almost unbelievable.

Maybe that's why he was hired? Trump looks better by having a communications director who is even crazier?

That has been BS from the start. It's all propaganda. There is no way a real CONSERVATIVE family values person would vote for a Fake NYC Slick talking faux gangster . He is the exact opposite of every thing they espouse.

I don't even think it's offensive to Trump.. he probably sees himself exactly like this. He's living a long episode of The Apprentice, where all these folks are supposed to backstab each other to win his favor.

I'm surprised there are even any people in here cheering on these crass hedge fund behaviors (no offense to any hedge funders in here). When they're paying HRC for speeches or flashing their money a la Wolf of Wall Street, they're evil.... when they're cursing out their own colleagues in the press, they're suddenly winners.
