Former White House aide Anthony Scaramucci said Monday that if Republicans have the courage to replace Donald Trump as their presidential nominee next year, the impact will be like the demise of the Wicked Witch of the West in ‘The Wizard of Oz.’
‘Remember when the water got thrown on the green witch and she started melting?’ Scaramucci asked during a CNN ‘New Day’ interview. ‘What happened to all those soldiers, right?’
‘They’re in that position right now. So let’s throw some water on the green witch and let’s watch what the soldiers do, which is they’ll team up with Dorothy. That’s how the movies go. Let’s end the bullying and let’s end this sort of nonsense.’
The film villain’s minions in the 1939 classic are ‘all behind her until she gets hit with the water,’ he said. ‘Then she starts melting and they’re like, “Hey Dorothy, I’m sorry about that. You know, she was a little crazy, but now that she’s melted I can speak the truth” – reports dailymail.
Scaramucci said Monday that he kept his lips sealed for years about the president’s erratic behavior but “his increasingly divisive rhetoric…outweighs any short-term economic gain.
In response, President Trump hit back saying “Anthony Scaramucci, who was quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling, now seems to do nothing but television as the all time expert on “President Trump.”
Like many other so-called television experts, he knows very little about me other than the fact that this Administration has probably done more than any other Administration in its first 2 1/2 years of existence. Anthony, who would do anything to come back in, should remember the only reason he is on TV, and it’s not for being the Mooch!”
