In Memoriam: “The Mooch”

Anthony Scaramucci was many things to many different people. To his now-former boss Donald Trump, he was a loyal soldier who grew too famous for his own good. To his wife, he was a poor husband whose “naked political ambition” led her to file for divorce. To his newborn son, he was a delinquent father who couldn’t be bothered to be there for his child’s birth. But to the American people, he was a hero.

For 11 blissful days, The Mooch treated us to some of the greatest comedic moments we’ve seen from this administration. As the incoming Communications Director, one of his primary responsibilities was to control White House messaging and generate favorable coverage of the beleaguered Trump administration. In that spirit, I’d like to honor The Mooch in the most fitting way possible: through a collection of some of the best headlines to summarize his tenure.
