Anthony Scaramucci Cancels Online Event

By A.J. Katz 

Chris Cuomo broke news while anchoring the Wednesday edition of CNN Tonight that Pres. Trump’s former White House comms director Anthony Scaramucci would be hosting an online, fully-produced program on Friday. According to Cuomo, Scaramucci was using the event to”address the American people directly.” Former Fox News co-president Bill Shine was said to be the producer.

But per the tweet below, published yesterday afternoon, that event will no longer be happening.

 

Scaramucci’s official tenure as comms director lasted just five days. He was fired from the administration by incoming White House chief of staff John Kelly, days after a New Yorker article detailed a conversation between Scaramucci and reporter Ryan Lizza.

While his tenure was brief (to put it mildly), Scaramucci told CNN he still considers his short tenure in the White House successful. Both former White House press secretary Sean Spicer and Reince Priebus left during his time as communications director.
Scaramucci also said he was the target of both parties, and that the media has painted him as a loose cannon.

According to CNN, before Thursday’s announcement, Scaramucci had planned to stay out of public view following Friday’s event until after Labor Day, when he will announce his next venture after he evaluate his various media and finance-related opportunities.
