Anthony Scaramucci appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher on a panel that included campaign manager, political analyst, and author Donna Brazile and David Frum, conservative commentator and senior editor at The Atlantic. Frum has been critical of Donald Trump and perhaps it was inevitable that the conversation would heat up.

What started out as pleasant banter about Trump's lawsuit against Maher for joking that Trump was the "spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan" quickly escalated and veered off topic — and on to the subject of Scaramucci's alleged shady business practices with China.

It started when Frum asked: 

I have a question for you. Before you went into government, you received an enormous offer from a Chinese group, for the purchase of your company, $90 million, and after you came out the purchasers lost interest. How am I to understand that?

As Scaramucci launched into a long explanation that no one seemed to understand, Maher tried to lighten the mood by getting the Mooch off the topic. But that didn't work and Frum and Scaramucci continued to throw insults at each other. 

In the end, nothing was resolved and questions went unanswered. Which isn't a big surprise. 

The fighting continued the next day on Twitter:

Twitter wanted to know more about Scaramucci's business dealings with China:

They even asked Frum to explain the question:

And Frum didn't disappoint:

Some people were upset that Maher kept interrupting the discussion:

The cringiest.
