Anthony Scaramucci joined Banter to discuss the Democratic field of presidential candidates, his journey from President Trump’s inner circle to fierce critic, the future of the Republican Party, and what it’s like being an outsider in Washington, DC.

Anthony Scaramucci, or “The Mooch,” is the founder of investment firm SkyBridge Capital and former White House Communications Director for President Trump. His time as Communications Director, however, was short-lived; he was fired after just 11 days. Scaramucci continues to run SkyBridge Capital today, while also serving as a regular contributor to CNN and other prominent media outlets. A native of Long Island, New York, The Mooch received a B.A. in economics from Tufts University and a J.D. from Harvard Law School.
