Scaramucci to Host Live Online Event to Address His Dismissal

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci plans to host an online event Friday to address the American public about his dismissal this week. Scaramucci told CNN the event will be broadcast on multiple live platforms thanks to help from former Fox News Co-President Bill Shine. Scaramucci didn’t specify what time the address would be aired but said it would be a daytime broadcast aimed at reaching the president’s base. Scaramucci also said he joined the White House primarily as a “special purpose vehicle” to combat information leaks and only planned to stick around for six to nine months, CNN reported. He was fired Monday after less than 11 days on the job following the publication of a New Yorker interview in which he went on a profanity-ridden tirade about fellow staff members.
