MSNBC political analyst Nicole Wallace claimed on Friday that President Donald Trump’s appointment of Anthony Scaramucci is more about wanting better-looking men on the White House Communications Team than anything else.
Friday saw former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s resignation, which was alleged to be due to taking issue with Trump’s pick for communications director, Scaramucci.
Shortly after Scaramucci accepted Trump’s offer, Spicer resigned.
The New York Times reported that Trump offered the job of White House communications director to New York financier Anthony Scaramucci, a vehement supporter of the president who often defends Trump on cable news. Trump reportedly requested that Spicer remain on White House staff, but Spicer evidently held onto his alleged belief that Scaramucci was the wrong appointee for the commnications director position.
Wallace, who previously served as former President George W. Bush’s own communications chief, called into MSNBC and blasted the president over the notion that he wanted “better-looking men” to face the media.
“This is about someone who took some skin out of one of Donald Trump’s archenemies and that’s the cable news network CNN,” Wallace said about Scaramucci. “So, I wish this were a story about a really important job inside the White House, a post that speaks for the country and the president around the world, but this is about Donald Trump wanting better looking men spreading his message.”
Spicer was replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders as White House Press Secretary.
