Wall Street tycoon Anthony Scaramucci has started his new job in the White House by scrubbing clean his liberal leaning tweets.
The new communications director believes it’s better for the tweets to be gone from view. But truth is the tweets will live on forever through the many screenshots that have been taken by numerous media outlets.
Scaramucci tweeted about his decision to delete his prior tweets on Saturday (see tweets below).
The former Obama donor said in the announcement that he is deleting tweets from his Twitter timeline because he didn’t want his old messages to cause new distractions for the White House.
“Full transparency: I’m deleting old tweets,” Scaramucci tweeted. “Past views evolved & shouldn’t be a distraction. I serve @POTUS agenda & that’s all that matters.” He then tweeted a second message: “The politics of ‘gotcha’ are over. I have a thick skin and we’re moving on to @POTUS agenda serving the American people.”
Scaramucci stepped into his new roll on Friday. On that same day, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigned from his position, stating he wanted to create a clean slate for Scaramucci.
Scaramucci, who supported Jeb Bush and Scott Walker for president before jumping on the Trump train, will oversee the entire White House communications operation, and he will report directly to President Trump.
Conservatives have voiced concern over the new hire, stating Scaramucci is a liberal at heart. His past tweets are filled with liberal statements on gun control, climate change, immigration, and positive messages about Hillary Clinton.
One of Scaramucci’s tweets stated: “I hope she [Hillary Clinton] runs, she is incredibly competent.”
Another tweet stated: “You can take steps to combat climate change without crippling the economy… The fact many people still believe CC is a hoax is disheartening.” The tweet was published in 2016.
In 2015, Scaramucci tweeted: “Walls don’t work. Never have never will. The Berlin Wall 1961-1989 don’t fall for it.”
In 2012, he pushed out this message: “We (the USA) has 5% of the world’s population but 50% of the world’s guns. Enough is enough. It is just common sense it apply more controls.”
The above tweets are now deleted.
There is more to his history than a delete button can erase. Scaramucci was on television in 2015 and called Donald Trump a “hack politician.” He has apologized to the president about those remarks claiming he was wrong.
Dennis Michael Lynch took to Facebook Live on Saturday afternoon and said he wasn’t concerned about Scaramucci’s old tweets. DML said, “Give the guy a chance, he is here to spread the message of the White House. He is not here to make policy. He knows the president, he knows how to sell a story. He looks good, sounds good, and comes from the same New York cloth that the president is cut from.”
DML said he believed conservatives should embrace the new position taken by Scaramucci. He believes the White House needs a shake up, and he hopes Scaramucci will light a spark. “We need something to help us get the message out to the people better than we have to date,” said DML.
