Gingrich Just Revealed Why Scaramucci ‘Makes Trump Happy’

During an interview on Sunday, Trump apologist and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) praised President Trump’s decision this week to appoint Anthony Scaramucci to run the White House press shop, saying Scaramucci makes Trump “happy” because they “speak the same language.”

“He and Scaramucci sort of speak the same language,” Gingrich told John Catsimatidis in an interview on AM970 in New York City that aired Sunday. “And this way he has somebody that makes him kind of comfortable that he’s getting taken care of.”

Although Gingrich previously criticized Scaramucci for being “full of himself,” on Sunday Gingrich said Scaramucci’s combative approach to defending Trump in the media makes the president happy.

“Scaramucci is like Trump. He likes being in the media, he likes being seen, and I think he’s having a good time, and I think all of that comes together in a way that is very positive,” Gingrich said.

Gingrich’s comments come as Scaramucci finds himself at the center of controversy after publicly going after outgoing White House chief of staff Reince Priebus in the media.

Scaramucci’s starred in a dramatic White House staff shakeup that involved “foul” language and the loss of several senior staff members. He had suggested Priebus could be behind leaks coming out of the White House in a now-deleted tweet, before unloading on his White House nemesis in an interview with the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza.

“Reince is a f—— paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said in the interview.

He also went after chief strategist Stephen Bannon, saying, “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own c*ck,” he said.

“I’m not trying to build my own brand off the f—— strength of the president. I’m here to serve the country,” Scaramucci continued.

Yep, Trump and Scaramucci very much alike. They are both New York douchebags who have spent most of their lives making dubious business deals with shady characters, including mob-linked criminals.
