Anthony Scaramucci, who was fired after a tempestuous 11 days as the White House communications director, likened his job to a character in the movie “Pulp Fiction.”
“I saw it more as like Mr. Wolf from ‘Pulp Fiction,’ Scaramucci said on ABC’s “This Week,” when host George Stephanopoulos asked him to comment on characterizations that he was a “political suicide bomber” for President Trump.
He said in the Sunday interview that he was just trying to help Trump shape up the West Wing – even if his efforts were a little over the top.
“I really did get a directive from the president. I had a mutual understanding with him. I was probably running too hard and acting more like a corporate CEO than I was, say, a political operative,” said Scaramucci, who’s known as “The Mooch.” “And that’s my mistake and I have to own that.”
Harvey Keitel played Mr. Wolf – a fixer who helped the John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson’s characters dispose of a body in Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 award-winning movie.
Scaramucci, who was fired on July 31 after his profanity-laced interview ripping former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Trump strategist Steve Bannon surfaced, said he still stands by Trump.
“I went in there with my heart and soul. I’m a straight-talking person. Did I make mistakes – absolutely. But I enjoy being a straight-up guy today and in the future,” Scaramucci, a Long Island native and former hedge fund executive said.
