The conservative website Breitbart took aim at Anthony Scaramucci for his profanity-laced tirade Thursday night, suggesting the new White House communications director was either drunk or "drunk with power."

Either way — not good.

"There is absolutely no way that Scaramucci could be stupid enough to make those comments on the record, so Scaramucci, in a fit of rage about leaks about him, may have temporarily forgotten he was on the record or not realized that he was talking to someone in the Opposition Media, whose members only protect liberals when it comes to sweeping such comments under the rug," Breitbart's Tony Lee wrote.

Scaramucci's takedown of chief of staff Reince Priebus to the New Yorker's Ryan Lizza —whose source on the White House dinner with Sean Hannity Scaramucci wanted — was par for the course, given the last week, but his derogatory outburst about Stephen Bannon seemingly sets up a different kind of fight within the West Wing.

"Regardless, his defamatory comments about Steve Bannon, the White House's chief strategist, will only ensure that the story will be all about Scaramucci again," Lee wrote.

It was the website's second assault on the White House in a week; Breitbart assailed President Donald Trump's "hypocrisy" earlier this week for his assault on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the president's only cabinet pick dedicated to furthering his nationalist agenda, the website noted.

But Scaramucci's blunder, just a week into the job, displays a carelessness that can't sit well with an administration dealing with more front-burner crises than any should have to.

"If Scaramucci is tarnishing his brand at the moment when it needs to be the most spotless and pristine, then imagine the disregard he will have for Trump's brand, which Trump has built up over his lifetime," Lee wrote.

"If Trump thinks that Scaramucci's outbursts will damage Trump's brand for the long haul, he may see Scaramucci as a gamble that is not worth taking."
