Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci ripped MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Friday on “Fox & Friends” for her criticism of President Donald Trump, telling her to take her meds.
“Fox & Friends” played a clip of Maddow mocking Trump’s efforts to sit down with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, prompting Scaramucci to go on the attack.
“[Maddow’s] also missing the nuance here. One of the reasons why we never met with the North Koreans is out of the respect for the Chinese. When we cut that deal in 1953 — the armistice,” Scaramucci said. “China has grown. It’s now the second largest economy in the world. The president has a great relationship with President Xi. They obviously don’t like talking about that. And the combination of those forces have now allowed for this opportunity to take place for the world.”
“It’s a more complicated story than what she’s saying,” he continued. “But you can tell she’s got a little bit of that Trump derangement syndrome, which I like. I’m hoping that one of these comedians will come up with an anti-anxiety medication for these liberals. Just take one tablet a day. Maybe a suppository and take it easy.”
Scaramucci later apologized to Maddow on Twitter and called her “an important voice in our national discourse.”
I apologize to @maddow: that was a lighthearted joke that could be blown out of proportion. She is extremely talented and while we may disagree on some stuff she has an important voice in our national discourse.
