Default Some days I really wish I was back in journalism ...

... and Scaramucci's "suck my own cock" comment is one of those days.

Yeah, call up a national newspaper reporter, shoot from the hip, shoot yourself in the foot, and then whine about how your lousy aim is somebody else's fault, which apparently he did. "But ... but ... I thought it was OFF THE RECORD!!" I can only imagine the reporter listening to all this crap coming over his telephone line ...

Meanwhile, here's John Oliver's take on it. The most hilarious part is at the end: a collection of journalists trying to decide whether to repeat Scaramucci's words verbatim or tapdance around them.

P.S. Dear Mods: Notice I didn't even bother to ask whether this could go on the main boards or whether it should go into Fratching ...

And Screw-the-poochie's been fired. He barely lasted, what, ten days? Even for this insane administration, that's pretty bad.

Thunderbolt and lightning! Very very frightening!
Oops sorry, couldn't resist

The mooch lasted 10 days. For his replacement, do I hear 9 days?

Goodhair was on vacation longer than the Mooch had his job. Left before he started and got back after he was fired.

British comedian Jonathan Pye said if the revolving door goes any faster the entire White House will take off.
