President Donald Trump is a "full-blown narcissist" who is incapable of being a racist because of his self-centered nature, former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci told Newsmax TV.
In an exclusive interview with John Bachman on "Newsmax Now" Friday night, Scaramucci continued to lambaste Trump roughly two years after he left the administration in a cloud of controversy.
"I never said he was a racist. I said that he is such a full-blown narcissist that he objectifies people. So you can't be racist against a black car and a white car because they're cars. And that's how he views people," Scaramucci said.
Bachman began the interview by rattling off a list of things Trump has done, both before and during his presidency, that go against being a racist — things like integrating the private golf club he owns in Florida and signing criminal justice reform into law.
"He sprays a few things like you just mentioned to prove that he's not racist, and then he goes into these rallies and he elicits chants like 'send her back,'" Scaramucci said. "Or he goes on Twitter and he tells four congresswomen — three of which were born in the United States, one who its a naturalized citizen, all four democratically elected in the country — to go back to the countries they came from.
"The nativist Americans 100 years ago did that to my grandmother, that is a full-blown racist tweet. That is a full-blown racist trope."
For his part, the president has recently described his former communications chief as an opportunist and a fraud.
“Nobody ever heard of this dope until he met me. He only lasted 11 days!” Trump wrote on Twitter Monday night.
Two weeks earlier, after Scaramucci made an appearance of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher," Trump wrote a series of tweets saying Scaramucci was “quickly terminated (11 days) from a position that he was totally incapable of handling” and “now seems to do nothing but television as the all time expert on ‘President Trump.’”
“Anthony, who would do anything to come back in, should remember the only reason he is on TV, and it’s not for being the Mooch!” Trump wrote.
Scaramucci noted that Trump is incapable of being an actual racist because of his other traits.
"If you're that big of a full-blown narcissist, you're not a racist. The only person you care about when you're that big of a full-blown narcissist is yourself. So everything else is an object and a form of a transaction for him."
The interview followed several weeks of Scaramucci who worked in the White House for less than two weeks, bashing his former boss.
