Newsday: Follow the Mooch

TALKING POINT Follow the Mooch

The raging East Coast storm Thursday incentivized more daytime television viewing for the last on the snow totals and more opportunities to witness the return of Long Island’s very own snow-job expert, Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci.

Scaramucci was unavoidable as he made the rounds of network and cable news shows to defend President Donald Trump against the stunning claims in the new book “Fire and Fury” by Michael Wolff. He also got in some knocks against his old nemesis, Steve Bannon, who is the source for many of the book’s unflattering anecdotes about the president.

The Mooch, who last summer blew up his own run as White House communications director in just 11 days because of an interview with The New Yorker magazine about Bannon, seemed to be auditioning to get back into Trump’s good graces. “I don’t think any of those people think the president’s an idiot, dumb or dope . . . You cannot be dumb to win the presidency. You know he’s not dumb, I know he’s not dumb,” he said on “Fox & Friends.”

Whether Scaramucci can find his way back into the White House is unknown, but his return to the spotlight is sure to juice ticket sales for a fundraiser featuring “The Mooch” as guest speaker on Jan 31. 1 that is being held by the Manhattan GOP. Tickets are $500 each, and you will learn the location of the dinner after your check is cashed, giving Mooch the same aura of mystery as Bannon, when he spoke at Lee Zeldin’s recent fundraiser in the city.
