Fox News’ “Special Report”
By Cathy Burke | NEWSMAX
Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer condemned as “disgraceful” an expletive-loaded tirade by incoming communications director Anthony Scaramucci against White House rivals Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon.
In remarks on Fox News’ “Special Report” with Bret Baier, scolded the Wall Street financier that “being a New Yorker is no excuse.”
“This is the degradation of the presidency,” Krauthammer said, calling out President Donald Trump for not restraining the new top aide, who will become White House communications director in August.
“This is where we have come to. None of us have ever seen this. The reason is that it is not to be done. That kind of language is not be used, particularly when it’s infighting in the White House.”
“The fact that the president is allowing all of this to go on means that it rests with him,” he added. “He’s the only one who can actually restrain this. He appears not to. Perhaps he believes that Scaramucci is the guy who will clear the swamp in the White House, but this is really disgraceful.”
Scaramucci tweeted Thursday night would “refrain” from using “colorful language,” but said he would remain “passionate” about Trump’s agenda.
