President Trump slammed former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci as a unstable “nut job” amid his recent criticism of the White House.
The president scorched Scarammuci in a series of tweets Monday, accusing him of “wheedling” his way into his 2016 campaign. He said he barely knew Scarammuci, and called him a “mental wreck” that the administration didn’t want around.
….got fired. Wrote a very nice book about me just recently. Now the book is a lie? Said his wife was driving him crazy, “something big” was happening with her. Getting divorced. He was a mental wreck. We didn’t want him around. Now Fake News puts him on like he was my buddy!

This comes after the former official said he was putting together a group of people to speak out against the president.
