Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci expressed disgust at comedian Michelle Wolf for her attacks on White House press secretary Sarah Sanders at the White House Correspondents Dinner.
“I think what you guys are missing is, you think it’s totally okay to take a cheese graters to somebody’s face, grate their face, drop the cheese grater and say, geez, part of your job is to have the right side of your face bleeding,” Scaramucci said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” Sunday.
Scaramucci called the insults to Sanders an “atrocity” and compared Michelle Wolf to “Fire And Fury” author Michael Wolff.
“I think the hostilities need to be de-escalated on both sides,” Scaramucci added. “It’s not just the White House. What happened last night was an atrocity, and it was like literally watching Michael Wolff with a wig on. I thought Michelle Wolf was Michael Wolff, actually.”
Host Brian Stelter appeared shocked at Scaramucci’s use of the word atrocity and said there are worse tragedies in America more deserving of attention.
“Okay. I’ll tell you why it’s an atrocity,” Scaramucci shot back. “Because it doesn’t help what you’re trying to achieve and what I think all of us are trying to achieve.”
“Your logo says facts first,” he concluded. “We want the White House, obviously, to be accountable. We want people in the — we want an openness with the White House. But this constant barrage of attacks — people are human, Brian. They’re just going to look at that and say, hey, I’m sorry, no mas.”
