Scaramucci no longer backs Trump’s reelection, says change may be needed at top of ticket

Asked by Berman on “New Day” if he was “no longer an active supporter of President Trump and his reelection bid,” the former Trump loyalist replied, “I think that’s pretty obvious from over the weekend.”

“The guy’s actually dissembling a little bit, and he’s sounding more and more nonsensical. And, you know, we’re sort anesthetized to it,” he added.

Trump appeared to be angry over the weekend with Scaramucci after he called the President’s recent visits to the grief-stricken cities of El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, following two mass shootings a “catastrophe.”

Asked if he was calling for changing the Republican ticket, Scaramucci replied, “Well, I’m calling for it to be considered, yes.”

“I think you have to consider a change at the top of the ticket when someone is acting like this,” Scaramucci said.

The former aide said that although he believes Trump’s policies are “very, very good for the American people,” the President’s “rhetoric is so charged and so divisive that we have to all just take a step back now and say, ‘what are we doing, actually?'”

“He goes after individuals as the President of the United States on his Twitter account, OK, which incites hate, which incites death threats,” he said, adding later, “The racially charged comments, the divisive tweeting, the nonsense coming from the President is not helping the country.”
