Donald Trump's incoming communications director once referred to his new boss as a "hack politician" with a "big mouth," who makes "anti-American" comments and demeans women. He will now be working for the White House at taxpayers' expense.
Responding to comments from Trump, Scaramucci told the other members on the panel, “I don’t like the way [Trump] talks about women,” and alluded to the interview in which Trump said anchor Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her wherever.”
Scaramucci also referred to Trump as a “hack politician” and an “inherited money dude from Queens county,” a reference to the fact that Trump built his company with his father’s wealth.

SCARAMUCCI: That’s another hack politician. […] He’s a hack politician.
BARTIROMO: You’re in trouble now.
SCARAMUCCI: He’s probably going to make Elizabeth Warren his vice presidential nominee with comments like that. It’s anti-American. It’s very, very divisive. […] I’ll tell you who he’s going to be president of, you can tell Donald I said this, the Queens County bullies association. You got to cut it out now and stop all this crazy rhetoric. […] I don’t like the way he talks about women. I don’t like the way he talks about our friend Megyn Kelly. And, you know what, the politicians don’t want to go at Trump because he’s got a big mouth. And he’s afraid he’s going to light ’em up on Fox News and all these other places. But, I’m not a politician. Bring it. […] You’re an inherited-money dude from Queens County. Bring it, Donald. Bring it. […] He’s a class divider.
Scaramucci’s hiring reportedly has set off an internal White House turf war, and led to press secretary Sean Spicer’s resignation in protest of the hire.
Donald Trump has a long history of sexism and misogyny throughout his time in the public eye. His behavior has not changed in the White House, where he continues to treat women as idiots, playthings, and targets of his abuse.
