After segments of that on-the-record call were published—including the Mooch slamming his colleagues at the upper echelons of Team Trump, threatening to “eliminate everyone in the comms team,” calling Reince Priebus a “fucking paranoid schizophrenic,” and accusing Steve Bannon of “trying to suck [his] own cock”—many people wondered a) Where’s the audio? and b) what the hell Lizza thought about the exchange.
Now, we have a little more insight into both. The New Yorker has decided to feature bits of that recorded interview, as well as commentary from Lizza, on its podcast: WNYC’s The New Yorker Radio Hour.
And while it wasn’t able to fit the entire call in the episode—most disappointingly, all the swearing has been bleeped out—we do get to hear a few golden moments. Both “fucking paranoid schizophrenic” and “suck my own cock” made it in there, along with a brief segment in which Scaramucci refers to himself in the third person, literally as “the Mooch.”
