|Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci|
Anthony Scaramucci, who you may remember (it was so quick) spent a few days as the White House Communications director last month, tweeted the bizarre message below comparing New Yorker Magazine reporter Ryan Lizza to Clinton/Lewinsky scandal leaker Linda Tripp:
.@RyanLizza is the Linda Tripp of 2017. People know. And he is up at night not being able to live with himself.

Of course, the odd thing about this is Tripp secretly taped her conversations with Monica Lewinsky regarding President Clinton. Scaramucci called Lizza and knew he was being recorded, yet kept yapping obscenities about folks in the White House.
And if Lizza is the “Linda Tripp” of this analogy, doesn’t that mean “Mooch” is Lewinsky? And we all know why she’s famous, right?
Note – New York and Washington D.C. are “one-party consent” jurisdictions, which means that it is legal for anyone on a phone call to record the conversation.
The Twitterverse was happy to jump in:
Wait….does this mean Mooch is Monica Lewinsky?

Linda Tripp was a New Yorker reporter who was always on CNN?

Tripp taped Lewinsky without her knowledge because she hated Clinton. Lizza taped you because that’s what reporters do, Doofus.

He did not think this analogy through.
