The Mooch Has Canceled His Live-Stream Event

Vanity Fair reports:

Before he (temporarily) disappears from public view, however, Scaramucci had a few things to get off his chest. Which is why he promised to tell the American people what really went down during his week and a half on the job, in an “online event” Friday that could be the biggest spectacle in Washington since James Comey’s Senate testimony. Or at least, that was the plan. Unfortunately, less than 24 hours after announcing his web special, in a whiplash move reminiscent of his whirlwind White House tenure, the Mooch had a change of heart.

In a short preview of the (now-cancelled) air-clearing exercise, Scaramucci had told CNN that he was brought into the West Wing as a “special purpose vehicle” to disrupt the infighting and leaks and that, in truth, he expected to only be in the position six to nine months. He told Chris Cuomo and Sophie Tatum that he considers his 10 days in the White House to have been a success—highlights include Sean Spicer resigning in protest and Reince Priebus getting the boot—despite the fact that his story has been “misconstrued.”

  • bkmn

    I was so looking forward to hearing how Kelly screwed the Mooch.

    • Uncle Mark

      The images those words conjure up are both titilating and nauseating

  • BobSF_94117

    I’m unsurprised, relieved, and saddened, all at the same time.

    • Uncle Mark

      I loathe him too, but was looking forward to his attempts to fuck over the other members of the Cheeto regime. I’m sure half of what he was going to say were lies, but the fun was going to be determining which parts were true, and watching the damage control afterwards…perhaps igniting a bitter war of F-words with “friends”

      • shellback

        Uncle Mark, I couldn’t agree with you more.
        As a side note, do you know what I used to do with one of my uncles?

        • Uncle Mark

    • bkmn

      There is a reason McMaster cleaned out all the Trump loyalists and kept the people Obama appointed. I won’t be surprised to learn at some point that McMaster and Mueller are in regular communication.

      • Gustav2

        McMaster might be a patriot and anti-Nazi, er, anti-White Christian Nationalist.

        Just a thought.

        • clay

          He came into and advanced in the US military after its successful integration; his idea of brotherhood might be very different than those who did not.

      • That_Looks_Delicious

        Sort of. The people McMaster is cleaning out are Bannon’s key people and Bannon’s loyalists, to the extent that Trump and Bannon can be separated.

    • Cuberly

      I’m loving the depth of ignorance in the comments. They can’t see past Obama derangement syndrome. They can’t even allow themselves the capacity to understand the logic of such policy. It’s full blown white christian racism over there.

      https://twitter.com/LPDah/status/893178526194585600

      • That_Looks_Delicious

        The news was buzzing yesterday that there is an all-out war going on in the WH between Bannon and McMaster, so I’m sure all the alt-right nooz and the deepest darkest corners of Reddit and 4chan are trashing McMaster today.

        • Cuberly

          Actually the anti-McMaster movement is going full steam. Particularly among evangelicals. Sandy Rios of all things had a show where she talked about the need to fire McMaster. Haven’t checked Breitbart but my guess is they’re trolling like mad about it.

    • shellback

      Is there a Tweetle-to-English handbook? I rarely, if ever, understand what any of it means. Now, get off my lawn. Luv ya, BeccaM

      • First we saw classified transcripts of the calls Donald made to Nieto and Turnball back in January.

        Now it was a letter from McMaster basically exonerating Susan Rice of any wrongdoing and confirming she could keep her top-level security clearance going forward.

        • shellback

          Thank you for the clarification. What would I do without you?!

        • Gustav2

          What? You mean “un-masking” isn’t the same as “leaking” and not treasonous? Who knew?

        • Tread

          Welcome to “Boystown.” Sadly, the gayborhood has been overrun by breeders as rents and prices have gone up. They’ve forces a ton of local businesses out with sky-high business rent.

          • Christopher Smith

            YES. it’s horrible. Yet another neighborhood made by GLBTs and overrun by yuppie breeder assholes.

        • Christopher Smith

          You should see it now. uggggggggggggh. Like the rest of Boystown. The coup de grace was the closing of the wonderful flagship Brown Elephant, and its move five miles west. The new one bears no resemblance to any decent thrift store–just another soulless ripoff joint for yuppie scum.

    • kaydenpat

      Never liked Missouri so will have no reason to visit.

      • That_Looks_Delicious

        LOL. I was in Jefferson City, MO for work once, and I came out of a supermarket into the parking lot and looked around and around and said to my co-worker, “I really hate this place. If I wasn’t being paid to be here, there is no way I would ever come here for any reason.”

        I don’t know why that just came out like it did. I don’t usually make statements like that out loud, least of all to my co-workers. And I’ve been in objectively worse places (I worked in New Orleans immediately after Katrina before it was even cleaned up or had running water or electricity), but no place ever came across as so stifling and disagreeable to me.

        • kaydenpat

          Like you, I’ve only been to Missouri for business (St. Louis). Just didn’t like it at all.

    He gave her things that she was needin’

    4) No self respect.

    • Jonathan Smith

      sounds about right.

    • Uncle Mark

      I wonder if Spicer or Priebus have sent him sympathy cards yet? Does Hallmark make “Ha ha…fuck you” cards? There’s GOT to be a market for that.

    • Uncle Mark

      He did sell his share of his company to the Chinese at an overvalued price, which is one of the reasons Priebus didn’t want him in to start with; thinking that the Chinese basically bought him. I wonder if the Mooch is still able to take advantage of that capital gains tax exemption granted to new gov’t employees (since he could have claimed to have sold his shares to avoid a conflict of interest)?

      Any which way, the ex-wife will get at least half of all that…plus more in child support. Good times…..good times.

      • Cuberly

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxd-7dTsUfQ

      • That_Looks_Delicious

        Peña Nieto will still be president of Mexico for almost a year. The elections are in June. He is a lame duck president with abysmally low approval ratings, but he is still their president.

    • What I found most sickening was the unrelenting abject whinging and begging from Donald.

      Like, “Please please please don’t tell everyone you won’t pay for the wall. It was just a lie to get me elected! Like the lies about Mexicans being terrible people, you have to understand!”

      Then, “Stop announcing Australia will accept refugees! It makes me look heartless and bad!”

      All I can say is that with the release of these transcripts, plus that letter from McMaster which most are saying exonerates Susan Rice completely for any wrongdoing during her tenure as NSC head, is someone’s looking to stir things up majorly. Someone who wants to bring Donald down with maximum embarrassment and chaos.

      Now then, the biggest question of all: Who? One person or several? And for what precise reason? Patriots acting for the country? Or disgruntled former Trump loyalists angry for being tossed out? Or embedded Russian agents looking to close out their most successful active measures op ever, before too much more direct involvement is exposed?

  • Paula

    And I wonder if his business is still for sale to China? Does China still see his business as an asset now that he’s no longer in the WH? My guess is that China expected a quid pro qou. We buy your business and get the ear of POTUS as part of the deal. Since that’s no longer the case, my guess is that the sale has fallen through.

    Anchor Brewing, San Francisco’s beloved 121-year-old brewery and creator of the city’s most famous beer, is being sold to Japan’s Sapporo Holdings Ltd. in a landmark deal.
    * * *
    Anchor Brewing Co. is considered the leading pioneer of the craft beer movement, and is credited with reviving and modernizing some of today’s most popular American beer styles. The price of the deal was not disclosed …

    The news comes as the latest in a line of high-profile craft breweries purchased by larger beverage companies, following in the footsteps of Heineken’s acquisition of Lagunitas …
