Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci feels he needs to address the American people over his quick exit this past Monday.
He’s isn’t satisfied on how he’s been portrayed through the media and wants to set the record straight. Many Trump supporters liked and defended Scaramucci even after the article came out with his less-than stellar language calling out some of the individuals surrounding Trump.
His honesty is what sold a lot of supporters, and they weren’t happy he didn’t get a chance to show his abilities to defend the Trump agenda against a hostile press. Not all Trump supporters approved of arrogance, however, but they understood him.
On Friday, Scaramucci will address these things and more.

Scaramucci said this daytime event — which will be broadcast on various live platforms with help from former Fox News co-president Bill Shine — will give him the opportunity to reach and communicate with the President’s base.
Although his time as communications director was notably short, Scaramucci told CNN he only anticipated being in the position six to nine months. Scaramucci said he was brought into the White House as a “special purpose vehicle” to disrupt the culture of leaking and counterproductive infighting.
On Wednesday, CNN obtained an internal memo that detailed his other goals, which included things like trying to improve press relations and create more content from within the White House.
Scaramucci was fired from the Trump administration by new chief of staff John Kelly days after a New Yorker article detailed a conversation between Scaramucci and reporter Ryan Lizza. During the profanity-laced conversation, Scaramucci accused former Trump chief of staff Reince Priebus of being the source of West Wing leaks and said “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own c–k,” among other things.
Scaramucci said he believes his story is being misconstrued, however, and said had he known he was speaking on the record he would have not spoken in such a vulgar manner on behalf of the President.
