Drain the Freaking Swamp has become Drain the Freaking Sewer.
Trump recently changed Swamp to Sewer to indicate that Washington, D.C. is much worse than even he imagined.
He is making incredible progress and changes but he could be doing 10 times as much if he weren’t constantly battling the Sewer.
Which may be why he recently brought in Anthony Scaramucci. Initially, I was not real excited about “Mooch” because he had attacked Trump early in the campaign, siding with the Never-Trumpers. But that’s ok, people can change and see the light and it looks like he has. So welcome to the Trump Train buddy!
And boy is he ever off to a great start!
Earlier this week he already fired one staffer he determined to be a Leaker, and he’s been quoted as saying he wants to “Fire Everybody” and start fresh!
Short of that, he just identified who the Leakers are and he’s dead-on.
From The Hill, take a look:
New White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Wednesday blamed holdovers from the Obama administration for a series of damaging leaks that have rocked the White House in recent months.
Speaking on Fox News, Scaramucci said that “political holdovers” from the Obama White House “aren’t helping,” and hinted that more staff changes could be on the way.
“Listen, we have to crack down on leaks on a number of different fronts,” Scaramucci told “Fox and Friends.”
“There seems to be some holdovers, political holdovers from the Obama administration that are not helping,” he added.”I certainly have the full responsibility in the comms shop, which I do believe will be corrected shortly.”
Scaramucci cautioned viewers to remember that it’s impossible for him to reach a point of absolutely no leaks, but pledged to clean up the White House press office.
“People are suggesting I’m going to try to get the leaks down to zero, that is absolutely impossible in Washington, I’m learning a little about this town, but what I do want to have happen is people who report to me, if there are senior people in the administration trying to get them to leak information on each other, we’re getting that to stop right now.”
D.C. is the kind of town, the Wall Street financier said, where people are “very nice to your face” but then stab you in the back.
“I’m more of a front-stabbing person,” he said.
On Tuesday, Scaramucci blasted “leaks” of his planned firing of White House press aide Michael Short, despite himself personally telling a news outlet of his plans. Scaramucci added that he would “fire everybody” in the White House press office to stop the damaging leaks.
What say you….do you like Scaramucci so far?
