Scaramucci to Jake Tapper: I’ll bring CNN a box of Kleenex when Trump wins in 2020 — Video

While appearing on Sunday’s edition of CNN’s State of the Union, White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci promised Jake Tapper he would bring a box of Kleenex to CNN, the anti-Trump outlet now viewed by many as the least-trusted name in network news, when President Trump wins re-election in 2020.

“If I said some things about him, when I was working for another candidate, Mr. Trump, Mr. President, I apologize for that. Can we move on off of that. I know you and I have moved on off of that. Jake hasn’t moved on off of that, obviously and that’s okay Jake, I don’t care. But, I’m going to be working for you and I’m going to serve the American people and we’re going to get your agenda out into the heartland where it belongs and we’re going to turn this thing into a movement, a bigger movement than we have already,” Scaramucci said.

“I love how you’re talking to one specific viewer right now, the most important audience that there is,” Tapper said.

“I like talking to him, but you know who else I’m talking to? The people I grew up with. They get me and get him,” Scaramucci responded.

“I get it,” Tapper said. “I grew up in a very similar neighborhood in Philadelphia.”

“He’s gonna win again, Jake. He’s gonna win again and I’ll bring a box of Kleenex over here to CNN in 2020,” Scaramucci added.

“We don’t need Kleenex,” Tapper responded.

“He’s gonna win again Jake. We’re going to get this agenda prosecuted. He’s gonna win again,” Scaramucci said.

Given the reaction we’ve seen from CNN these last six months, perhaps Scaramucci should’ve offered a trainload of Kleenex…

Scaramucci also warned that the leaks are going to stop.

“The President likes speaking from the heart, he likes telling you what he likes and dislikes. He’s the type of coach I work well with in high school football. It’s okay with me if the President doesn’t like certain things that I’m doing, we’re all on the same team. I would prefer the direct and immediate feedback as opposed to anything else. What I don’t like about Washington is if we say one syllable or one sentence, this guy said something bad about me, then all of a sudden they have to be my mortal enemy. I don’t think that’s how it works in American business. I can sit across the table from somebody that works with me in my company that I founded and say here are five things that I don’t like what you’re doing and we have to fix it. By the way, tomorrow I’m going to be having a meeting with the communications staff and say hey I don’t like these leaks, so we’re going to stop the leaks and if we don’t stop the leaks, I’m going to stop you. It’s just really that simple,” he said.
