In case you were wondering, the F-bomb filled rant packed with curse words that Anthony Scaramucci unleashed on a New Yorker reporter on Wednesday was not his fault.
Or so says the White House Communications Director, at least.
“I made a mistake in trusting in a reporter. It won’t happen again,” Scaramucci tweeted Thursday evening.

His Twitter statement comes after New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza detailed a conversation with Scaramucci in which the new White House staffer unloaded his contempt for Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, advisor Steve Bannon and anyone who is leaking information from the White House.
The scathing one-liners dropped during the profanity-laced telephone call included, “Reince [Priebus] is a f—ing paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac;” “I’m not Steve Bannon. I’m not trying to suck my own c—;” and “What I want to do is I want to f—ing kill all the leakers.”
Do you talk to your mother with that mouth, Scaramucci?
Ironically, Trump’s communications director once scolded someone on Twitter for using curse words, telling them: “I like the give and take as long as it is without the curse words, my kids are on this thing called Twitter!!”
Earlier on Thursday, Scaramucci admitted via social media that “I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight” for Trump’s agenda.
