    I caught the last minute or so of this on Fox, and loved the way he subtly told Wallace that they didn’t need the press any more. It was clear to me but I don’t think Wallace caught on to what he was being told!

      Ha! Chris Wallace has a really, really high opinion of his intellect. Surely you can’t mean that Scaramucci got one past the always brilliant Chris Wallace? Ha ha. Okay, I may have to break my vow and watch this…

      I cannot stand snarky and interrupting Chris Wallace (though to my horror Limbaugh said on Friday that Wallace is his favorite interviewer!. However, I decided to watch since Scaramucci was on — and I was delighted to see that Scaramucci’s presence actually trimmed Wallace’s snarkiness down to level 2 when it ususally runs 8-10 on a scale of 10. That alone was a welcome change (not that I’ll watch Wallace next week either) but Scaramucci actually did not bend to Wallace’s constant interruptions as others do, but Scaramucci — and not Wallace — had command of the interview. Kudos!

        UPDATE:

        Watched all the clips, including KAC’s @ unreliable sources. I guess I should NOT be surprised but all the shows asked the SAME QUESTIONS Scaramucci in particular.

        I suspect DONNA BRAZILE leaked the questions to all the shows and they ran with them.

        Scaramucci did great. He’s setting up the media perfectly and he’s delivered a suttle message to the White House team about leaks (suttle like a heart attack).

  2. Mr. Scaramucci was quoted from de-Face the Nation this am saying that he’s going to get all the WH staffers together on Monday and tell them that they have to work as a team and that if the leaks don’t stop he’s going to fire everybody. Everybody. I think that’s awesome. How much do you want to bet the leaks stop immediately?

      I’ll bet $50 they don’t. Self destructive behavior is self destructive behavior and “I’m above the law because the NYT deserves to know” isn’t a rational, well-thought-out behavior.

      Don’t get me wrong, I hope you’re right and they do stop. I would give $50 to be wrong.

      I deal with these type of people (the kind what would leak) and my prediction is at least one of them is thinking “I dare you. Fire us all. You’ll never do it.”

  5. How was it? I know I could watch myself, but it’s the devil himself. I can’t describe how much I hate Chris Wallace. I want to enjoy my day

    He brings out every unchristian pore in my body. I just can’t watch him. He is terrible at his job, a job he only got because of Daddy. He voice makes me go into an internal hysteria. He is rude, aggressive, and thinks the sun shines out of his behind. I just can’t watch him. He is a big swamp gate keeper. What a little maggot.

    So, how did Scaramucci do? Anyone like to give a paraphrase of what was said? Even a transcript would put me into a position where I can hear his whiny little beta male voice in my head. A summary would be great. I can deal with the other swamp monsters, just not him.

    I don’t think I’m alone. I am sure others would like that service too.

          We took a little break from watching golf to see the Chris Wallace interview of Anthony Scaramucci. It was good. In the lightening round where Chris Wallace asks a 2 minute question and wants a 15 second answer Anthony calmly and smoothly took his time to fully answer. Chris Wallace protested but had to smile. Anthony explained that he and Pres. Trump are New Yorkers and therefore talk alike. I had to laugh when Chris Wallace said he was a New Yorker too, because his badgering style is different from Trump and Scaramucci.

    Some here question this appointment because Scaramucci apparently isn’t a conservative ideologue. He says that doesn’t matter because he now works for Trump. I will take him at his word until he proves otherwise.

      Alpha Scaramucci is like the little brother of Alpha President Trump, underling the strength of both POTUS and his presidency. He also verbally reminds people that he loves POTUS, as do we.

      One thing I noticed at the end of the interview was that he made an interesting comment something to the effect of that he had not discussed this with POTUS yet but he had a radio statiion, a TV station, and a movie studio in his pocket (at the White House) and to stay tuned. That would be great, POTUS in action more.

      Yes, we will stay tuned. — Sundance, do you have the right cat look for this? Kind of a professorial scratch the goatee very interesting, hmmm cat look? 🙂

      Conservative “pundits” are always putting people through purity tests. Much like what the left does. They wan up purging a lot of good and talented people because they don’t have the correct opinion about this or that. It’s why they can’t win. This last election removed the mask on the right and the left. We found out the virtue signaling is just as much a problem on the right, and that plenty of “conservatives” care more about looking “smart” than actually winning elections.

      how you get attention in a business turn around situation with a bunch of rebellious employees.

      pick a visible group who everyone thinks have cushy guaranteed jobs, but who are easily replaceable….set the scene where you announce publicly that they are going to do something your way or get fired. and then you fire them all if ANYONE challenges or goes against the deal. does not matter how many nice folks get canned…especially if it is a STAFF and not a LINE function.

      Make a big deal about how they had a chance and failed the simple test of doing what they were told to do with advance knowledge of consequences.

      Then your boss the CEO declares that it was what had to be done, and he announces the next group to be “tested” with others to follow. And that anyone that thinks that they cannot do their job in this way may step forward now and resign without any adverse consequence.

      The groups will fall in line…because any rebel will get outed cause the others don’t want to get fired for non performance, which makes it damn tough to get another job elsewhere….and they are fired for cause, which breaks up severance and benefits

        Sun Tzu exactly. After delivering his treatise to the King he was asked to test his theory using women, so the harem and such were sent out, given spears, taught simple formation manuever commands, then divided into opposing “armies” with the two favorite concubines at the head of each. Upon being given a command they broke down with the giggles, repeatedly, so he ordered the two “generals” beheaded, and, despite the King’s plea to spare them, it was done. Two new leaders were chosen, commands given, and movements were executed perfectly without a sound or a smile. He was made General, and the rest is History.

        Sacking well chosen personnel works, especially, as you noted, when the sacrifices were considered the safest in their positions and the sacking is curt and brutal.

      A couple of things Scaramucci said made me go “hmmmm”. He said that he is giving the staff a clean slate and that he is working with them, they are not working “for” him. And together they are working for the President.

      In my mind, that implies that Sean Spicer ran that department in a different manner than Scaramucci intends to and that maybe Spicer tolerated leaks without cleaning up the problem.

    Well, I watched all three (Tapper, Dickerson, and Wallace). Tapper was by far the toughest one to get through. Scaramucci did great in all three. A lot of overlap; in a lot of ways it was like watching the same interview three times. You had the focus on Russia, the dealing with leaks, the Trouble with Trump’s Tweets, the who is Trump going to pardon deal, and Scaramucci’s past tweets as well as his calling Trump a hack politician.

    Scaramucci effectively handled all of it, coming across like a very reasonable, likable person who wasn’t going to get bullied in an interview. He controlled all three interviews, but he did it in an unobtrusive way. He was also very clear that this isn’t going to be about what Scaramucci thinks, but about what Trump is doing and his reasoning behind it. I give bonus points to Scaramucci for referencing Lewandowski and saying they were going to let Trump be Trump.

    President Trump just put a very important chess piece on the board.

        In any event, Scaramucci did a great job. He pointed out a couple things that I think the American public could probably stand to have repeated every now and then: Trump is a business guy, and he’s a New Yorker. Scaramucci’s point with both of these observations is that both businessmen and New Yorkers have no problem laying down some criticism of someone they sincerely like and support while the Washington view seems to be that if you say the slightest thing against someone else means you must be mortal enemies.

      That’s a perfect example of what most conservatives get wrong. Let the interviewer know you won’t accept any BS from them and they give a respectful interview so they don’t wind up getting humiliated. Wallace tried a few times to snark, but got shut down.

      Most conservatives think if they suck up to the interviewer he/she will be nice to them. It’s just the opposite – that is when they go in for the kill because they sense soft prey,

    Melissa Francis would be a good Sunday interviewer. She gets what POTUS is doing from a business stand point and asks tough fair questions. I don’t find Wallace to be very intelligent and from what I can tell someone else gives him his talking points.

    I watched the interview with Wallace. Scaramucci completely handled him. During the lightening round, Scaramucci used as much time as he needed to attack the “Hit and Run” questions Wallace loves to ask. I think Wallace was actually a little in awe after the interview.
