The sad saga of Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci is getting more pathetic by the day. One can trace the general deterioration of any Republican by their proximity to former Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol and their involvement in the NeverTrump movement. Yes, that’s apparently still in a thing in some neoconservative circles, surprising as it may be.
These delusionals, who seem to believe that conservative might prefer someone like Justin Amash in the Republican primaries, are still working to tear down the man who has done more for conservatism than any GOP president in recent memory. And now they apparently have a new ally in Scaramucci.
Kristol told CNBC this week that he has been in talks with The Mooch since the latter fell out with President Trump in recent weeks. CNBC asked Kristol if Scaramucci and he discussed finding a Republican who could replace Trump at the top of the 2020 ticket, to which Kristol replied: “Yup.”
Maybe Scaramucci himself can do the job! He can’t do worse than Bill Weld.
“The overwhelming flood of texts, phone conversations and support last night from people that are actually inside the White House, up on Capitol Hill, former elected officials, current people in position of power, current elected officials, is truly staggering,” Scaramucci told CNN, claiming that Republicans were coming out of the woodwork to support him in his public campaign to smear Trump.
We now know that this “staggering” level of support comes from people like the long-irrelevant Kristol. Among others we can imagine supporting Scaramucci: Jeff Flake, Amash, Bob Corker, Mitt Romney, Max Boot, Nicolle Wallace, Jennifer Rubin, Ana Navarro, and all the rest of the so-called Republicans who are really uncomfortable with a GOP president who actually accomplishes things.
“A couple more weeks like this and ‘country over party’ is going to require the Republicans to replace the top of the ticket in 2020,” Scaramucci predicted.
Ya, we’ll believe it when we see it, Mooch.
