In the span of just two months, Anthony Scaramucci went from White House Communications Director to guest host of TMZ's syndicated TV series.
Like so much that's occurred in 2017, that sounds like a joke, but believe it or not, the Mooch actually took over Harvey Levin's cubicle-hovering duties on yesterday's show.
And to the surprise of absolutely no one (with the possible exception of the Donald), Scaramucci seems far more at home in the world of celebrity gossip than he ever did in the political arena.
The Mooch was at his catty best on Monday, suggesting that the White House is less than thrilled about Sean Spicer's controversial appearance at the Emmys, and joking that Steve Bannon recently removed his own dong from his mouth just long enough to enjoy some In-N-Out Burger.
But while Scaramucci's comments about his former co-workers may have amused political junkies, it's his remarks about President Trump's friendship with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady that have social media buzzing today.
As you may recall, back in February, the Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl XLVI, an upset victory that proved once and for all that God is either dead or struggling with a serious drinking problem.
Despite the fact that Brady supported Trump during the 2016 election, he did not join the rest of the Pats for their post-championship season visit to the White House.
At the time, it was widely assumed that Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen, dissuaded him from going for political reasons.
Ya know, since she's an immigrant, and Trump would like to see her kind loaded into catapults pointed at their home countries (or Mexico, the ocean, whatever's easiest).
But Scaramucci has a much more tabloid-worthy theory that probably makes Donald wish he could move on The Mooch like a bitch and grab him by the man p-ssy.
"My guess is, which is typical, there could be a little bit of jealousy there and protection and possession of Tom Brady, and she probably didn’t want him to go," Scaramucci said on TMZ Live.
"Maybe there was a relationship between him and Ivanka at some point."
Sure, he threw in a "maybe" to cover his own ass, but the Littlefinger of D.C. knew exactly what he was doing by putting that theory out there.
And hilariously, that's not the first time there's been public talk of Tom Terrific connecting with Ivanka for a little bump and run.
In fact, it was Trump himself--delivering the sort of incestuous weirdness that somehow didn't alienate every voter in the country--who first suggested that Tom and Ivanka would make a "great combination" in 2004.
But while the thought of his daughter's sexual escapades may put a nauseating smile on Trump's face during his evening bathrobe hours, a rep for the White House insists the Ivanka-Tom hookup never happened:
"While they have known each other for years, this is not true," the source tells TMZ.
Kind of a shame, really. We're always looking for new reasons to hate the Patriots.
