Anthony Scaramucci's Height: How Tall Is Scaramucci?

The anonymous source behind a claim of doubts about Russia's alleged interference in the US election cited by Donald Trump's new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, turned out to be...

Scaramucci appears to be a commentator in the same vein as Kellyanne Conway-a polished representative for the president who can combat facts with word salad and accusations of bias in the media.

Scaramucci said on Fox that the old tweets were "a total distraction".

"Let me tell you one of the things I really hate about Washington, we have this political purity test on policy".

'If you're asking me for my personal opinion - and maybe the president will be upset for giving my personal - we should put the cameras on, ' Scaramucci told CNN's Jake Tapper Sunday morning on State of the Union.

Scaramucci notably said he reports directly to the president, not to the chief of staff - an unusual arrangement for a communications director.

"So, if I'm for something and then I'm against something then, all of a sudden I'm a hypocrite".

Still, Scaramucci straight out denied one part of his past: An essay he penned in 2016 condemning "unbridled demagoguery" in the Republican Party. "So it's sort of a blend of those two things", he told the network. Sarah Sanders, Spicer's deputy, was promoted to press secretary.

The piece never explicitly named Trump - so Scaramucci now claims he wasn't talking about his new boss.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer, who became a household name in his short and turbulent drama-filled term, quickly resigned after Scaramucci's appointment.

'Very tan and refreshed, ' the new Trump aide said.

Trump has offered varied responses on Russian efforts to influence the election over the past few months.

On the Russian Federation stories, Scaramucci said on Fox that a "two-pronged approach" was needed, saying that "in some ways we want to deescalate things and have there be a level of diplomacy".

He said that President Donald Trump's administration was suffering from a "communications problem" that he would work closely with the president to fix.

His "positive mojo" seemed to already be flowing Sunday. In that case, he's suggesting that the only area in which Sanders could improve-a suggestion that warranted public discussion on a CNN broadcast-is that she see to it that Scaramucci's hair and makeup person stay on full-time?

Unlike Spicer, who had an at-times combative relationship with the news media, Scaramucci was warm and more measured as he took questions.
