Scaramucci: Trump's visits with mass shooting victims a "catastrophe"

“The president didn’t do well on the trip. He probably would be mad at somebody for saying that. Maybe he’ll tweet something negative about somebody for saying he didn’t do well, but facts are he did not do well on the trip because if the trip is being made about him and not the demonstration of compassion and love and caring and empathy for those people, then it becomes a catastrophe for him, the administration, and it’s also a bad reflection on the country,” he said on MSNBC’s “Hardball.”

Mr. Scaramucci also slammed White House staffers for leaking their viewpoints to the press instead of confronting the president directly.

“Something about Washington where there is an allergic reaction to the truth, and people would rather tell the reporter on an anonymous phone call about what they think is going on in an attempt that they think actually saves their face,” he said.
