Trump’s latest hire loves gun control, climate change, Obama and Hillary

Anthony Scaramucci’s stance on gun control may affect concealed carry legislation, at least according to Dana Loesch, spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association.

Although she wasn’t speaking in an official capacity, Loesch tweeted out an apparent criticism of President Trump’s new hire after the White House announced Friday that Scaramucci would be the new communications director.

Loesch uncovered a Dec. 2012 Twitter exchange between Scaramucci and Wall Street broker Laura Goldman in which they discuss gun laws.

Goldman wrote: “[You] can withdraw support from legislators that block sensible gun laws, which preclude semi automatics. Kids before tax rates.”

Scaramucci reponded: “I don’t support that legislation, never had, I have always been for strong gun control laws.”

Early reports indicate Loesch re-tweeted the exchange, writing, “Hmm. How does Anthony Scaramucci as [spokesman] handle nation reciprocity when it becomes an issue?”

On her Twitter feed, the tweet now simply reads: “Hmm.”

Loesch also posted a second uncovered Scaramucci gun-related tweet from Aug. 2012. In it, he writes: “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.”

Loesch responded to that tweet, too, writing: “I hope you’ve changed your mind on this.”

According to The Hill, the NRA’s Director of Public Affairs, Jennifer Baker, said Loesch was “not speaking on behalf of the National Rifle Association when she commented on recent White House personnel decisions.”

Back on Twitter, Loesch says what Scaramucci believes about gun control matters. She wrote, “You’re talking about someone responsible for presenting President’s message to public. Not a policy maker, but a narrative maker, so, huge.”

Scaramucci can’t seem to catch a break on Twitter, as the Democrats join in to poke fun at him.

Dems on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee also scavenged for past tweets, pulling out examples of Scaramucci’s support of the climate change narrative in seeming opposition to President Trump’s views.

Last year, Scaramucci wrote in a tweet: “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 Senate Energy Democrats replied to the tweet, writing: “Congratulations on the new gig, [Scaramucci] #ActOnClimate”

Also last year, Scaramucci wrote, “I am not a climate change denier. I have said publicly that I don’t know the answer. I am for clean air and clean water” and “Not a climate change denier. Not a young-earther. A pragmatist who wants market-driven solutions.”

Democrats are now happily agreeing with the president’s new communications director.

Also re-surfacing are some pretty disparaging remarks Scaramucci made about the president. Back in 2015, Scaramucci said Trump was a “hack politician,” along with other choice remarks. He has since said that the president’s forgiven his past transgressions.

Trump administration staff members appear to be in opposition to Scaramucci’s hiring, including Sarah Huckabee Sanders and possibly Reince Priebus. However, Sanders showed no sign of discord as she introduced Scaramucci at Friday’s on-screen press briefing, wherein Scaramucci said that despite claims otherwise, Priebus is like a “brother” to him.

And, as total icing on this “swamp cake,” it’s also been revealed that Scaramucci has been an active donor to former President Barack Obama and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton:
