‘The Mooch’ Isn’t So Tough On White House Leakers

'The Mooch' Isn't So Tough On White House Leakers
Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci, President Trump’s new Communications Director, fired White House Senior Assistant Press Secretary Michael Short, the first shot in The Mooch’s campaign to fire all leakers. Mr. Short learned about his dismissal through a post on the Politico website. Politico learned about the matter through a leak from a guy named  Anthony Scaramucci who, as of this date, has not fired himself.

Of course, the biggest White House leaker is someone The Mooch can’t fire: Donald Trump, his boss.

A new government hire and a stickler for ethics, Mr. Scaramucci will divest his 44% share in SkyBridge Capital, a “sacrifice” that will earn him $80 million. He’s selling it to a mysterious Chinese corporation. Welcome to the Trump Administration.
