Scaramucci Calls Bannon A White House Leaker On Colbert's 'Late Show'

Scaramucci Calls Bannon A White House Leaker On Colbert's 'Late Show'”

Here's what he had to say about President Trump and working in the White House.

Colbert had more questions about Trump's chief strategist.

"Mr. President, this is terrorism, not your order at KFC", Colbert snarked, noting, "I have seen angrier Yelp reviews".

During the dinner, Trump vented about his frustrations with Bannon, the former chair of Breitbart News, and did not push back against the advice from Murdoch, a source told the Times. It's a low bar, and it probably helps that unlike the cast of misfits still roaming the White House, he doesn't still depend on staying in Trump's good graces for a paycheck.

While Scaramucci was serving under Trump, the Justice Department filed a legal brief arguing against legal protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation.

The former White House official insisted Trump was a compassionate person, a contention that drew booing from the studio audience, which led Colbert to implore, "Don't boo him for being the messenger". "It's a privilege every day to enable the national security team".

In addition to joking about his remarks being "off the record" - a reference to his expletive-filled interview with a New Yorker reporter - Scaramucci repeated his criticism of the way Trump reacted to the protests in Charlottesville.

When Scaramucci came out for his interview with Colbert, he was greeted with chants of "Mooooch, Moooch". Members of various white supremacist groups were fixtures at Trump rallies leading up to the election.

But, besides those comments and a mention of a recent, "candid" conversation with the president, Scaramucci did not seem to be positioning himself as a key outside advisor to the White House.

"He did condemn the Nazis today", Scaramucci said.

And the Bannon hate didn't end there.

He has pushed to scrap the 2015 nuclear-weapons agreement with Iran, which McMaster argues should remain in place, and has also proposed using contractors to fight the war in Afghanistan rather than expanding US forces there, as McMaster has advocated.

Conservative commentator Mike Cernovich is a Bannon ally and has been a vocal critic of McMaster, even leveling personal attacks against him.

So, the host spun the incident into a long list of things the president has been more mad about than "neo-Nazis murdering people in the streets". You know that. I went through 17 Senators, Governors, and I won all the primaries. "We were actually pretty good friends when I was a political donor writing checks to the RNC". "I am ready to work with anybody who will help advance the president's agenda and advance the security, prosperity of the American people", McMaster repeated.
