If former White House Communications Director and vulgar savant Anthony Scaramucci doesn’t want his own television show, then he should probably stop running around Washington providing unnecessary political commentary and press appearances.
Still, as Trump continues his ascension to Supreme Ruler of the territory formerly known as the United States of America, any former die-hard supporter who turns critical of Trump’s legislation’s welcome in “the resistance” – in the back row, at least.
The Mooch’s latest criticism comes after the news of Trump’s newest tax bill, as the bloated multi-bankrupt “stable genius” believes the solution to the widespread retaliation to the trader he created is more tax cuts for the wealthy.
“WTO has its flaws, but the ‘United States Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act… stinks. American consumers pay for tariffs. Time to switch tactics,” Mr. Mooch tweeted out.
But it was that Scaramucci noticed the latest mistake Donald Trump has made in a long line of bad titles – from his ironically titled “Art of the Deal,” to adding the name “Trump” to any business he opened, to Eric – The Donald has never been one to proofread or think much before slapping a name on something.
This time around, Donnie-boy called his bill the Fair and Reciprocal Tariff Act – FART, when made into an acronym.

Mooch quote tweeted an article from Axios, which just recently published a leaked copy of a trade bill that would have the U.S. break with World Trade Organization rules.
“It is no secret that POTUS has had frustrations with the unfair imbalance of tariffs that put the U.S. at a disadvantage. He has asked his team to develop ideas to remedy this situation and create incentives for countries to lower their tariffs. The current system gives the U.S. no leverage and other countries no incentive,” White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told Axios.
Axios reports that under the bill the U.S. would elect to abandon the “most favored nation” principle, which says countries are not allowed to set different tariff rates for different countries outside of free trade agreements.
Once again, Donald Trump has created a world in which Anthony Scaramucci is not only relevant, but one of the smart ones. If that isn’t reason enough to rally like fire and vote Republicans out in November to reign in Trump’s power, perhaps nothing will convince you.
