Anthony Scaramucci, the 10-day WH Communications Director and now former vocal Trump supporter has joined the small number of visible republicans who have essentially renounced DJT. Scaramucci, with a mercurial at best history as a political surrogate, Trump supporter and White House employee for a record-low number of days, has labeled Trump as nonsensical, unamerican, a divisive/racist tweeter and believes someone else needs to be at the top of the republican ticket (though he hasn't named names). Scaramucci states his belief that Trump is currently taking a turn for the worse, is deteriorating, and warns the danger of granting 4 additional years to this POTUS.
Response from the liberal side of the media has been to saturate the airwaves and web-sites with "Mooch" with the only pushback being disagreement with Scaramucci's claim that Trump is deteriorating
, stating conversely that Trump is the same as he's always been - same divisive rhetoric, name narcissism, same lying, same impulsive, uninformed decision-making.
I acknowledge that Anthony Scaramucci is not the voice of the Republican party.... he appears to be a publicity seeker who craves his moments in the limelight. That said, I continue look for signs of cracks in Trump's armor, symbols of a loosening stronghold on republicans. If republicans begin shift from Trump, perhaps this starts to open a door for someone like Kasich or Romney or Huntsman or Haley to think that maybe they can, and should, challenge the president -- which I think could serve to put a wrench in Trump's bid for re-election.
It's probably not the domino I am hoping for, but if the next few days does bring with it a few republican "flips", perhaps things get rolling in what I feel is the right direction. I am fearful that the dems are (will be) unable to band together on a "beat Trump" theme and will foolishly wind up nominating a fatally flawed candidate like Liz Warren who will not be able pull the 5% in the middle to the dem side in the general election.
