After Scaramucci announces his ambitions to bring out a “trove” of anti-Trump Republicans, Trump predictably fires back.
Trump twitter-accused Anthony Scaramucci of being a “nut job” this morning after Anthony Scaramucci, last week, publicly revoked his support of the President and, this morning, announced his intention of gathering a coalition of former cabinet officials in what Scaramucci likened to a mutiny.
“It comes back to a situation like the Caine Mutiny Court Martial,” he said. The Caine Mutiny is a 1951 novel by Herman Wouk, later adapted by Wouk into the play, The Caine Mutiny Court Marshal. Both the play and the novel depict the fall-out of a mutiny on the USS Caine when the captain is ruled unfit to serve by the crew. Comparing the book to our current situation, Scaramucci said “it became your patriotic duty to speak out.”
Speaking out, in Scaramucci’s case, meant suggesting Trump is “having a meltdown.” Scaramucci plans to work with his “trove” of “likeminded Republicans” to decide on an put forward a Republican challenger to Trump. This late in the game such a bid isn’t likely to succeed, but, judging by the President’s response, the Moochiny dealt Trump a blow.
Trump said in his tweet he had “shellacked” Scaramucci in the primary, that Scaramucci was a “nut job” and that Scaramucci “said his wife was driving him crazy, ‘something big’ was happening with her. Getting divorced. He was a mental wreck. We didn’t want him around.” Trump goes on to claim that Scaramucci wasn’t a “buddy” of his, but the intimacy of the President’s attack, how personal it is, reveals the two were certainly not strangers.
In fact, before his appointment as Communications Director, Scaramucci was a spirited Trump defender. Whether Scaramucci’s prediction will carry through and there will be other Republican turncoats as the election approaches, time will tell.
