The best people!

So, I’ve seen about 1000 people share one of the best political quotes ever from this truly incredible Ryan Lizza article about his conversation with new Trump Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci.  Just, in case you’ve missed it:

Scaramucci also told me that, unlike other senior officials, he had no interest in media attention. “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” he said, speaking of Trump’s chief strategist. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.” (Bannon declined to comment.)

Oh my.  Wouldn’t not have predicted a conflict where I take Bannon’s side.  Anyway, that amazing quote aside (which I will probably be sharing with my students in PG-form for literally decades) there’s just so much more.  Scaramucci is breathtakingly unqualified for his job.  Kind of like his boss.  Well worth reading this whole, sad, sorry thing.
