Former Trump White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said the president will be annihilated on election night in an interview Thursday night on CNN. “The guy is going to get annihilated and he’s going to get humiliated and then the question is going to be what is he going to do in the aftermath? We’ll have to see what happens at that point as well,” Scaramucci said
DON LEMON, CNN: So, it’s really just unbelievable. Anthony, this president is also admitting out loud saying that he’s against funding the Postal Service because he doesn’t want to expand mail-in voting, not even trying to hide the corruption. SCARAMUCCI: Again, but that’s sort of a Russian thing, right? They do everything out in the open and you’re so alarmed by it that you think it can’t be happening, so I get that part of his playbook, too, you know. Listen, when Michael’s book comes out, Michael Cohen, there’s — just remind everybody, there’s documentary evidence in that book. The White House is denying what’s in the book but he is going to supply documentary evidence, and in that playbook is exactly what he’s doing to the post office. And that’s the way the guy operates. We have to let the American people know this so that they can make the right decision in November. LEMON: He, right now, though, Anthony, he’s trying to undermine mail- in voting which could lead to voter suppression. Will it stop there? In your view — SCARAMUCCI: It’s corruption. LEMON: — is that already cheating? SCARAMUCCI: Well, of course, it’s cheating, but remember, he’s trying to send a signal to people, I’m really down big-time in the polls but I’m going suppress a lot of votes so make sure you show up and vote for me if you’re still one of my supporters. We’re still in this, because I’ve got all kinds of chicanery, I’m going to deploy here to keep myself in the game. I mean, the Rasmussen poll in Wisconsin, I mean, they’ll probably going to poll out in Wisconsin as well, it’s 52 percent-43 percent. They’re out of Michigan. They’re likely to be out of Wisconsin. The guy is going to get annihilated and he’s going to get humiliated and then the question is going to be what is he going to do in the aftermath? We’ll have to see what happens at that point as well.
