According to sources that spoke to Page Six, new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is getting divorced. And his wife says President Trump is a big reason for the breakup.
Scaramucci appeared to reference his marital troubles in a tweet after the news broke Friday, asking for prayers and that people not politicize his divorce.
Leave civilians out of this. I can take the hits, but I would ask that you would put my family in your thoughts and prayers & nothing more.— Anthony Scaramucci (@Anthony Scaramucci) 1501277216.0
"Leave civilians out of this," he said. "I can take the hits, but I would ask that you would put my family in your thoughts and prayers & nothing more."
The report said that Deidre Ball "despises" Trump, and didn't like the "naked ambition" with which her husband sought after the president's favor.
“Deidre has left him and has filed for divorce," a source told Page Six. "She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C."
"She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits’ end," the sourced continued. "She has left him even though they have two children together.”
Deidre appeared to have a Twitter account at the screen name "MrsAScaramucci," but has deleted it. There are a few tweets at another account attributed to her at "DeidreJBall," including one with a picture of their son from April.
Thinking about how fast this little man is growing up. Happy almost 3rd Birthday to my sweet Nicky! https://t.co/rdKy61962s— Deidre (@Deidre) 1491657550.0
