Christians condemn ‘nasty, vulgar’ tycoon. No, not Trump.
Another day, another tawdry cat fight in Trump’s administration – Anthony Scaramucci, above, recently hired to become White House Communications Director, was sacked at the weekend, much to the delight of Christian conservatives who apparently disapprove of foul language (unless of course it’s used by the President).
Scaramucci hit the headlines last week when he ranted against former Trump Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Trump adviser Stephen Bannon.
Scaramucci had called Priebus “a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” in an interview last Thursday with the New Yorker. Of Trump’s Chief Strategist he said:
I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock.
According to LaBarbera “influential religious leader” Bob Vander Plaats wrote publicly to President Trump about Scaramucci:
I suggest you lead by first washing out Mr Scaramucci’s mouth with a bar of soap. After a thorough rinsing, strip his credentials and escort him personally off the White House grounds.
This report describes Scaramucci as being “pro-abortion and pro-LGBT”.
