Anthony Scaramucci slammed former White House colleague Steve Bannon during his appearance on “The View” Friday when asked who the most unlikable people in the Oval Office were.

“I would pick two. How do you think I got along with Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon,” the former White House communications director shared. (RELATED: ‘The View’ Slams ‘Unstable’ Trump For Threat To ‘Totally Destroy North Korea’)

“You thought that was a good relationship? You thought we were triumphant, the three of us? I mean that was rough,” he added, before naming what he thought were the former White House chief strategist’s good and bad qualities.

“Steve, his best quality is he’s a great speech writer,” Scaramucci explained. “He has got great linguistic skills. His worst quality to me was that he had a little bit of a messianic complex. He got very mad at me for going to Davos, Switzerland to speak at the world economic forum, which was sanctioned by the communication team. But because he’s an anti-globalist and he was hitting that economic forum at Breitbart for so many years, that put me in disfavor with him.”

“And so people who have messianic complexes, they think they’re the answer,” he continued. “They think they’re the solution. What we know about our country and we know about our government is it’s set up as a system of checks and balances.”

Asked then if he thought Bannon was a white nationalist, he answered yes.

“I would say that he has those tendencies,” Scaramucci said. “If you read Breitbart, there’s a lot of white nationalist economic fervor. To me it doesn’t matter. We’re rainbow. Let’s share the pie.”
