Scaramucci: Trump Has to 'Move Away' from 'Bannon-Bart Nonsense'

Charlottesville Mayor Chides Trump Names Victim of Car Ramming

One person was killed and others injured when a driver plowed into a group of counter protesters.

The former Wall Steet tycoon was pushed out following a profanity-laced phone call with New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza which he said was "mischaracterized". He'll discuss what it's like to uproot your life to go work for the president only to be dismissed 10 days later because you couldn't resist making a joke during an on-the-record interview about Steve Bannon fellating himself.

After stating that the president needs to move away from what he referred to as the "Bannonbart" influence towards the mainstream, Scaramucci was asked whether "Bannon has to go". It's his decision. But I mean at the end of the day, I think the president has a very good idea of who the leakers are inside the White House.

Scaramucci was sacked after just 11 days on the job.

In his interview Sunday, Scaramucci fueled recent rumors about a forthcoming shakeup in White House staff, suggesting that chief strategist Steve Bannon was behind some of the leaks that have plagued Trump's presidency.

Scaramucci said the president can't be told what to do, but said those around him should "give him direct advice" and "be blunt with him".

Jolie also detailed how their children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and twins Vivienne and Knox are dealing with the changes. As he fought for joint custody of their children, Pitt also faced his own parental shortcomings.

But Scaramucci steered clear from using over-the-top statements, and instead made a point of having a calm conversation with the ABC News host.

But he acknowledged that he "made an unforced error", and said that he was a target from the start.

"Well, I wouldn't have recommended that statement", the former (and briefly) White House communications director said of Trump's "blame on many sides" speech yesterday.

"I think people are probably reluctant to tell him the truth".

SCARAMUCCI: Let's leave it up to the president.

He said that Trump had created an "opening" for corporate CEOs to "enter the system", and mentioned Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and The Walt Disney Co.'sBob Iger as corporate chieftains who have expressed an interest in politics.
