President Donald Trump appointed former Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci to White House Communications Director last week prompting Sean Spicer to resign from his position as White House Press Secretary and White House Communications Director in protest of the new appointment.

Scaramucci, a former Obama donor, once called Trump “a hacked politician,” a statement he now regrets. He also refused to endorse the president from the beginning, pledging his allegiance to Scott Walker and Jeb Bush before jumping ship.

Scaramucci’s opinion is now more favorable to the president following a meeting he had with the then presidential candidate at Trump Tower in June 2016.

He refers to the president as a “results-oriented entrepreneur capable of delivering bipartisan solutions to common-sense problems” and is now often seen rushing to the president’s defense, both online and during television interviews.

Today on “Pat & Stu,” the guys discussed Scaramucci’s background and their skepticism over his new role in the White House. Scaramucci has advocated for gun control, praised Hillary Clinton, and has voiced his disapproval a new border wall between Mexico and the United States.
