Worst Week Ever: Scaramucci listed as dead


Anthony Scaramucci’s tumultuous stint as White House communications director has come to an end Monday, and of course it coincided with his being listed as ‘dead’ in the Harvard Law Alumni Directory.

While his camp won’t offer anything other than that Scaramucci accomplished what he set out to do and is excited to return to Wall Street, the death listing is the cherry on top of what can’t be described as anything other than a nightmarish week for the fiery New Yorker. On top of being removed a mere 10 days into his communications gig, his wife filed for divorce just prior to the birth of their new baby.

Each Harvard Law Directory indicates alumni who died since the last one was published with an asterisk. And sure enough next to “The Mooch’s” name, who graduated in 1989, is a tiny asterisk. The last directory was published in 2011. It’s unclear if the error was a prank or a typo, but it possesses elevated figurative meaning given Scaramucci’s shooting star-like political career.

“Regrettably, there is an error in the Harvard Law School alumni directory in the listing for Anthony Scaramucci,” a spokeswoman told The Washington Post in an emailed statement. “We offer our sincere apologies to Mr. Scaramucci. The error will be corrected in subsequent editions.”

If nothing else, Scaramucci’s Harvard law degree served as good source material to drop with press conferences during his White House tenure. In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Scaramucci said he would never have attended the infamous meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian officials because of his law knowledge. Later in the same interview, he boasted about getting an A-minus in Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe’s constitutional law class.
