      Yes, I think something is missing. How do we even know who these three truly are or if they are even brothers. The FBI and other agencies paid no attention to these IT techs with all that was going on. Also, there are so few pictures and no pictures or video of apprehension at airport. Very odd.

      She lets them off pretty easily, doesn’t she? “Let’s move on”? They’ve just dedicated almost the entirety of their vast resources to violate their core principles and reason for being, defraud the American people and attempt to defame and destroy this president and his presidency. But that’s okay, hopefully it’s all over, and ;let’s go forward.”

      Sorry, I find this pathetic.

    I was watching the news break that leads into Judge Jeanine on Faux News at 9:00 tonight. Apparently our new communications director made a comment about how his department could use a better hair and makeup team. When pressed by those thinking he was disparaging Sarah, he said that he was referring to himself. I don’t believe it. I know he’s only been there for a week, and the first day was impressive, but it has been downhill at 90 mph since then. Doesn’t seem to be able to help himself. Painful thought, but losses must be cut. IMO, he’s gotta go. Soon.

        You have to admit, it was an unnecessary comment and rubs people the wrong way.
        He really needs to get control of his mouth. Petty and stupid as that comment maybe, we all know he was referring to women and mostly likely Sarah or Conway. It’s just not helpful or needed. He needs to focus on what matters and get the agenda done!

        New White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci told press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that he’d love to keep using the hair and makeup person they used Friday.

        Anthony Scaramucci’s ‘Hair and Makeup’ Quip to Sarah Huckabee Sanders Draws Cries of Sexism
        Jul 24, 2017

        “I think Sarah does a great job. She’s an incredibly warm person. She’s incredibly authentic,” Scaramucci told CNN’s Jake Tapper. As the interview wound down, Scaramucci referenced his own White House briefing debut on Friday, when he announced Sanders as Spicer’s replacement:

        “Sarah, if you’re watching. I love the hair and makeup person that we had on Friday, so I’d like to continue to use the hair and makeup person.”

        (re the following comment. Not “clear”??? You gotta be kidding…nah! you’re just trying to twist peoples minds…again–nwtex)
        When he made the comment,it wasn’t clear what Scaramucci meant whether he was referencing the person who does Sanders’s hair and makeup specifically or the artist who, perhaps, made up them both for their on-camera appearances.

However, for others, it’s not our business such as the Scaramucci divorce because he’s on our team. That’s what I was trying to convey. Now that Scaramucci’s wife is persona non grata here, she plunks out children while those women in the administration that we like “give birth”. It’s a full time job wrapping one’s head around these contortions.

You don’t get a divorce after having 2 children in 3 years of marriage unless you didn’t want to be married in the first place, or didn’t bother to get to know your future spouse because, well, who he was at heart wasn’t really the point. This is very common in my world. I’m confident.

                  Yes, the contortions that allow one to judge the intent of a person whom you have never met but assume you know based on your life’s experiences and because of such experiences you want to bad mouth her when you have absolutely no clue, no evidence, no facts to support your attack on Scaramucci’s ex-wife and her reason for asking for the divorce. I never knew that clairvoyance was such a common skillset. My point and one that was crystal clear is that we tend to excoriate those with him we have political arguments, but conveniently overlook any flaws in those with whom we agree. Indeed, I think this double standard speaks for itself and bears no need for one’s judgment. It plain to see if you read the comments. You can play which ever card you so choose.

                  If you reread my comment I said “…making horrid remarks…” such as wishing one suffers and dies a slow and painful death etc etc etc. Those type of dark comments have been rampant.
                  I do not know how one can be comfortable with themselves when speaking like that about a human being (regardless) and I doubt they would have the nerve to say it to the persons face.
                  Then of course there is the “karma” aspect.
                  But if you don’t have a problem with darkness then knock yourself out….you will have alot of company. Being jubilant over the pain and suffering of another human being is from a place I’m not familiar with…..and for that I am grateful.
                  In that comment I, also, said gossiping about A. Scaramucci’s wife and/or their marital situation is off base. She is a private citizen and beyond that no one here has the slightest clue…other than the gossip that is being spewed. So I will honor A. Scaramucci’s respectful request as I don’t want to cause grief to anyone in his family = words have energy.

              Anthony Scaramucci’s wife files for divorce
              By Emily Smith July 28, 2017 | 4:17pm

              Deidre Ball, who worked as a vice president in investor relations for SkyBridge Capital, the firm he founded in 2005 and sold to ascend to the White House, has filed for divorce from “The Mooch” after three years of marriage after getting fed up with his ruthless quest to get close to President Trump, whom she despises.

              One source told Page Six, “Deidre has left him and has filed for divorce. She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C. She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits’ end. She has left him even though they have two children together.”

              Scaramucci and Ball, 38, began dating in 2011 and are believed to have married in 2014.

              The source said that the Wall Street financier, 52, had been “hell-bent” on claiming his position at the White House after he was originally pegged for a senior role and sold SkyBridge Capital in preparation in January.

              He was blocked by Reince Priebus, Trump’s chief of staff. But, after an aggressive campaign, Scaramucci was made communications director on July 21 by Trump, prompting Sean Spicer to quit.

              Anthony Scaramucci, Deidre Ball, Donald and Melania TrumpAnthony Scaramucci, Twitter
              A second source close to Scaramucci — who has alternately not been wearing his wedding ring, or has been sporting it on his right hand — said the former couple had fought over his loyalty to Trump. This was his second marriage and Ball was noticeably not present at his recent SALT conference in mid-May.

              The source said, “Deidre is not a fan of Trump, and she hasn’t exactly been on board and supportive of Anthony and his push to get back into the White House.”

              The friend added, “Anthony is focusing on his children, his work for the president and the American people. There is nothing more important to him.

              “I don’t know who Deidre thought she was marrying but anyone who knows Anthony knows he’s an ambitious man.”…

He either needs to mature quickly and curb his mouth or he will become another casualty. If he can be more professional and get the message out that would be great. I am giving him a chance and hope he cleans himself up.
