White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci had another conversation with the New Yorker's Ryan Lizza, after his profanity-laced rant caught attention.

Scaramucci's tweet appeared to indicate that he thought he was off the record when he made the phone call to Lizza, but the magazine indicated that the tweet was being overblown.

"Late in the conversation, Scaramucci requested that one part be off the record, and we respected that. The rest was on the record. Today (Thursday), Ryan [Lizza] and Scaramucci had another conversation and Scaramucci was clear and agreed that the conversation was on the record," a New Yorker spokesperson told Axios. 

Lizza himself appeared on CNN's "New Day" Friday morning to say that Scaramucci made it clear he knew the conversation was on the record and could be published.

"I had a conversation with Anthony yesterday afternoon," Lizza said."I didn't want to post the piece until I had a chance to talk to him and walk him through what was going to be in the piece and explain it."

Scaramucci "made 100 percent clear to me, look, 'I understand that interview was not off the record, [it's] totally within your rights to publish it.' I don't want to say anything more about that conversation, but that was the takeaway from that conversation."

A source also told Axios, "the president loved the Mooch quotes. But President [Donald] Trump doesn't like being upstaged. 'Mini-me' can't forget the 'Mini' part. Being more Trump than Trump, in Trump's house, is a dangerous game."
