Anthony Scaramucci, who became infamous for his ten-day stint as White House Communications Director before President Trump hastily fired him last Spring, took to Twitter on Friday to defend his former boss after the firestorm Trump created with his "s**thole countries" comment:
The tweet sounds like Trump himself could have written it.
The offense wasn't the swear, it was the racism. He likes people from Norway, he doesn't want people from Hati or Africa. What's the difference? 🤔— cameron glenn (@jetsjets) January 12, 2018
Anthony, it's not about the use of language. I say shithole all the time. But usually, like, referring to a bar I don't like, not an entire nation of people, immediately contrasting to the whitest nation on Earth as a non-shithole.— Sean Morrow (@snmrrw) January 12, 2018
Listen up you Shelf Hummel, Dad was in the KKK. The ONLY people he talks shit about are brown people. The evidence is clear. This Motherfucker fired you for stupidity 10 days in and UR STILL on your fucking knees? Where's UR self respect bitch? We all swear Dick, not the point.— Christopher Titus (@TitusNation) January 12, 2018
You realize that cursing and being racist are two different things, right?— Erica Quint (@erica_hq) January 12, 2018
When you’re the leader of the United States Of America there’s a different set of rules one is expected to live by, starting with basic decorum & respect for the people of Every Other Nation in the World. It’s called Class & evidently Donald Trump has none. #ShitholePresident— 🐬NotMyPresident🐬 (@Chris6375) January 12, 2018
If you put aside the context of what Trump said and we agree that the simple use of curse words is not racist, would you agree that the use of racial slurs does, indeed, make someone racist?— Sliset (@sliset) January 12, 2018
Even if you believed he genuinely wasn't racist, calling him 'the least racist' person in the world is fucking ridonkulus— Clementine Ford (@clementine_ford) January 13, 2018
This is our new normal, I guess?
