Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci was a man conflicted with his gravitation to the limelight, according to a report.
"I'm stopping with the TV. No more TV. Gotta keep a lower profile today," Scaramucci would say as he walked around the West Wing, sources told Axios. Afterwards Scaramucci would give an interview to a cable news network or hold an impromptu press briefing, which often served as a distraction from President Trump's intended message.
As rumors circulate about his replacement, White House staffers continue to open up about Scaramucci's whirlwind tenure at the helm of the Trump administration's communications shop. Their anecdotes paint a picture of a man who craved constant media attention, a narrative fueled by news of his divorce to second wife, Deidre Ball.
Axios also reported that Scaramucci would threaten to fire the entire communications team for leaking sensitive information, before moments later saying "but I don't want to, I want to bring everyone together."
