Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was less than pleased with James Comey‘s choice of words last night and said so on Fox & Friends.
“You know what it’s like to be a businessman in New York and this president was a businessman in New York,” Brian Kilmeade opened, referencing remarks Comey made last night about his first meeting with then-President-elect Donald Trump giving him a “flashback” to when he helped take down the Gambino family and mob boss John Gotti. “Are you insulted by that?”
“Listen. here’s the problem for Italian-Americans,” Scaramucci replied. “I can be insulted by that but I can’t do anything about it.”
“For whatever reason, it’s still an unprotected class of people where they can say whatever they want about you,” he continued. “I’m in the White House, they’re saying I’m a walking pinky ring. Imagine if I was another ethnic group, they couldn’t say that, right?”
“It just speaks to Comey’s sanctimony and lack of awareness of his language and lack of awareness,” Scaramucci concluded. “They call him ‘Cardinal Comey’ for a reason. He thinks he’s got the answers. He thinks he’s at that papal throne and he’s the one that’s gonna make these decisions.”
