Anthony Scaramucci Just Had A Very Fiery Interview With Bill Maher

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

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.
