Open Thread: Scaramucci Does The Transparency Fandango
In the tradition of the commedia dell'arte and the Punch and Judy shows which came after, Scaramouche was a sort of cowardly servant character who gets beat up a lot. Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House Communications Director is also a sort of cowardly servant character who, well... we'll see, I suppose.
Much has been made of the fact that prior to taking this position, Scaramooch was very much opposed to how gross Donald Trump is, and also how dumb all of his ideas were. He expressed this sentiment both on television and in tweets.
