史上最短命白宫“外宣部长”:安东尼·斯卡拉穆奇的白宫十日

Alana Abramson, Maya Rhodan 2017年08月03日

斯卡拉穆奇在白宫的任期虽然短暂,却着实惹出了不少麻烦。每一天都有人爆出他的新料。现在我们来看看这10天都发生了什么。

新任白宫联络办公室主任安东尼·斯卡拉穆奇走马上任刚刚十天,就被白宫解雇了。

斯卡拉穆奇在白宫的任期虽然短暂,却着实惹出了不少麻烦。每一天都有人爆出他的新料,要么就是他本人成为了争议的焦点——比如在接受《纽约客》采访时大飙脏话。

现在,我们就来回顾一下这位短命的白宫联络办主任在短短10天任期内的高光时刻。

7月21日:顶替肖恩·斯派瑟

斯卡拉穆奇的任职决定宣布后,他在白宫简报室召开了一场新闻发布会。会上,他表示接下来会花几周的时间与“白宫群英”们熟悉起来。

针对坊间关于他与时任时特朗普幕僚长的雷恩斯·普里伯斯关系紧张的传闻,他也专门做了澄清,表示这一传闻并无根据。

斯卡拉穆奇表示:“我们的关系有点像兄弟,我们有时看起来互相很粗鲁似的,不过这对兄弟来说是很正常的。这里很多人都有兄弟,所以你们应该懂的。不过他是一个很好的朋友。”

Anthony Scaramucci was axed as the White House communications director Monday—just 10 days after he assumed the role.

Scaramucci had a tumultuous —albeit brief — tenure in the White House. Each day, it seemed, brought either a new revelation about him or a controversy of his own making, such as his profanity-laced interview with the New Yorker.

Here is a look at the highlights of his 10-day career as Trump's communications director.

July 21: Scaramucci steps in for Sean Spicer

After being announced as the new communications director, Scaramucci held a press conference in the White House briefing room, where he said he will spend the next few weeks getting acquainted with the employees in the West Wing.

He also addressed reports of tension with Reince Priebus,Trump's then-Chief-of-Staff, saying their rivalry was unfounded.

"We are a little bit like brothers where we rough each other up once in a while, which is totally normal for brothers. There’s a lot of people in here who have brothers, and so you get that. But he’s a dear friend," Scaramucci said.

7月22日:删推文

斯卡拉穆奇在推特上表示,作为白宫联络办主任,为了确保坦率透明,他要把以前发过的老推文都删了。

斯卡拉穆奇任职白宫前,曾经在推特上发表过不少与白宫意见相左的言论。比如他支持过希拉里,声援过控枪。就此,他在推特上写道:“以前的观点是会变的,它们不应该成为现在的干扰。现在我一切为美国总统服务,这是最重要的。”

“完全透明:我要删掉以前的推文。以前的观点是会变的,它们不应该成为现在的干扰。现在我一切为美国总统服务,这是最重要的。

7月23日:提到了萨拉·哈克比·桑德斯的头发和妆容

这一天他上了几个周日的脱口秀,讨论了他即将采取的宣传战略,以及计划如何禁绝白宫的新闻泄密问题。

在谈及白宫的员工时,他对福克斯新闻的克里斯·华莱士表示:“我们得看看在我的领导下,大家相处得怎么样。如果泄密问题没有停止,我就要开始裁员了,因那肯定是有什么问题的。”

在接受CNN的《国情咨文》节目采访过程中,他在谈到新任白宫新闻发言人萨拉·哈克比·桑德斯时,他的言论被很多人指责存在性别歧视的意味:

“萨拉,如果你也在看这个节目,我想说,我喜欢周五晚上给你做头发和化妆的那个人,所以我打算继续用他。”

斯卡拉穆奇后来在在推特上表示,他指的其实是自己的发型和化妆。

“郑重声明,我说的是我自己的头发和化妆,我喜欢那位化妆师。我需要各种能获得的帮助!#幽默

7月24日:白宫新闻简报会重启电视转播

在白宫冻结了新闻简报会的电视转播后,斯卡拉穆奇在推特上宣布,他将改变白宫的宣传政策,重新把电视转播提上议事日程。

这一天,他还随特朗普去了西弗吉尼亚。也就是同一天,特朗普在童子军大会上发表了一篇现在已经臭大街的演讲。

斯卡拉穆奇在“空军一号”上上传了几张照片到推特,并配文字道:“永不变老。”

July 22: 'The Mooch' deletes old tweets

Scaramucci, also known as "The Mooch", announced on Twitter that he was deleting his old tweets in an effort to be fully transparent as communications director.

He had previously tweeted about issues at odds with the White House's agenda, like support for Hillary Clinton and advocating for gun control. "Past views evolved and shouldn't be a distraction," he wrote on Twitter. "I serve POTUS agenda and thats all that matters."

Full transparency: I'm deleting old tweets. Past views evolved & shouldn't be a distraction. I serve @POTUS agenda & that's all that matters

July 23: He refers to Sarah Huckabee Sanders' hair and makeup

Scaramucci made the rounds on network and cable Sunday talk shows, discussing his upcoming strategy and plans to clamp down on leaks from the White House.

"We’ll see how they do with me at the helm," he told Fox News' Chris Wallace about White House staffers. "If the leaks don't stop, I’m going to pare down the staff because it's just not right."

While discussing Sarah Huckabee Sanders' new role as press secretary, he made a comment that drew criticism for sexist undertones during an interview on CNN's "State of the Union."

“Sarah, if you're watching, I love the hair and makeup person that we had on Friday, so I'd like to continue to use the hair and makeup person," he said.

Scaramucci later took to Twitter, saying that he was referring to his own hair and makeup.

For the record, I was referring to my hair and make up and the fact that I like the make up artist. I need all the help I can get! #humor

July 24: The return of on-camera press briefings

After weeks of the White House prohibiting televised press briefings, Scaramucci announced on Twitter that he was changing the policy and would revive the on-camera updates.

He also traveled with Trump to West Virginia, where the president gave his now-infamous political speech at the Boy Scout Jamboree.

Scaramucci posted several pictures from Air Force One on Twitter. "It will never get old," he wrote of the experience.

7月25日:“空军一号”上的生活

这一周,斯卡拉穆奇是“空军一号”上的常客。

在随同特朗普结束了西弗吉尼亚的行程后,他又陪着特朗普去了俄亥俄州,并且又在总统专机上发了几张照片。

7月26日:白宫大战普里伯斯

斯卡拉穆奇在推特上暗示,他的白宫劲敌雷恩斯·普里伯斯有意泄露了他的财务披露表,而这份财务披露表则出现在了政客新闻网的一篇报道中。

“泄露我的财务披露信息的行为已涉嫌犯罪。我将联系FBI和司法部。” 斯卡拉穆奇在这则推文中还@了普里伯斯的账号。

这则推文令外界纷纷猜测,斯卡拉穆奇是不是要叫执法部门来针对普里伯斯展开调查。对此,斯卡拉穆奇又发布了一则推文:

“不对!那则推文是公开告诫泄密者,所有高级幕僚官员都在协助解决非法泄密问题。@Reince45,pic.twitter.com/AB0reseuX1”

——Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci),2017年7月27日

7月27日:接受《纽约客》采访

这一天,斯卡拉穆奇先是接受了CNN的《New Day》栏目的专访,将泄密一事告诉了媒体。此时普里伯斯仍然是特朗普的幕僚长。斯卡拉穆奇表示,他和普里伯斯的关系就好比是“该隐与亚伯”的关系。

这一天晚些时候,斯卡拉穆奇继续言辞激烈地攻击普里伯斯。在接受《纽约客》电话采访时,他称普里伯斯是“精神病、偏执狂”,“背后下黑手”,言辞极为粗俗。

也是在这次电话采访中,斯卡拉穆奇声称要烧死整个白宫的通讯团队,以一劳永逸地解决“泄密者”。

“那天我发现了一个家伙。我明天就要炒掉三四个人,我会去找那个向你们泄密的人。雷恩斯·普里伯斯,如果你想泄密的话——他很快就会被要求辞职的。”他在采访中表示。

7月28日:老婆申请离婚,政敌宣布辞职

在斯卡拉穆奇上任一周后,他似乎终于打败了自己的老对手普里伯斯,因为就在这一天,普里伯斯辞去了白宫幕僚长的职务。

就在斯卡拉穆奇貌似在政坛开始得意的时候,《纽约邮报》又爆料称他的私人生活出了问题。据该报报道,由于受不了他“赤裸裸的政治野心”,与他结婚才三年的妻子已经递交了离婚申请。

看到相关报道后,斯卡拉穆奇发推文表示,这事儿不要让“老百姓”掺合进来。

“不要把老百姓掺合进来。我能承受这些打击,我只希望你考虑一下我的家人。”

7月29日:关于老婆的更多信息被爆出

这一天,更多关于他老婆的消息见诸报端。他老婆名叫黛德丽·鲍尔,今年38岁,申请离婚时已经有了九个月的身孕。

据《纽约邮报》称,当他老婆7月24日生产时,斯卡拉穆奇并没有陪老婆,而是跟随总统到西弗吉尼亚出差去了。

据说老婆生下儿子之后,他只给老婆发了个短信:“祝贺你!我会为我们的孩子祈祷的。”不过有一个代表黛德丽·鲍尔的人对《纽约时报》表示,这种说法并不属实。

7月30日:约翰·凯利接管特朗普团队

就在斯卡拉穆奇被解雇的前一天,前海军陆战队将军约翰·凯利担任了特朗普团队的新幕僚长。人们都想知道白宫的这些幕僚们(包括斯卡拉穆奇)会不会向这位新长官汇报工作。

在普里伯斯当政期间,斯卡拉穆奇曾明确表示,他只会直接向总统汇报,而不会向普里伯斯汇报。

在接受媒体采访时,白宫管理与预算办公室主任米克·马尔瓦尼、白宫高级顾问凯莉亚妮·康威都表示会代表其他同事说话,但他们也会执行新领导的命令。

July 25: Life on Air Force One

For the week, Scaramucci was a regular fixture on Air Force One.

One day after traveling with the president to West Virginia, he accompanied him to Ohio, posting several more pictures from the plane on Twitter.

July 26: White House infighting with Reince Priebus

Scaramucci sent a tweet insinuating that his White House rival Reince Priebus had leaked his financial disclosure form, which was the subject of a Politico report.

"In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting the @FBI and @JutsiceDept #swamp @Reince45," Scaramucci tweeted.

His tweet sparked speculation that he was asking law enforcement to investigate Priebus for the leak, causing him to send a follow-up tweet disputing that.

Wrong! Tweet was public notice to leakers that all Sr Adm officials are helping to end illegal leaks. @Reince45 pic.twitter.com/AB0reseuX1

July 27: The New Yorker interview

Scaramucci started the day with a call into CNN’s New Day, blasting leaks to the media and comparing his relationship with Reince Priebus, who was still serving as Trump's chief of staff, to Cain and Abel.

Later in the day, the Mooch continued his tirade against Priebus, calling him a “paranoid schizophrenic” who had “cock-blocked” him in a vulgar call with the New Yorker.

In that same conversation, Scaramucci threatened to fire the entire White House communications team in an effort to rid it of “leakers.”

“I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus — if you want to leak something — he’ll be asked to resign very shortly," he said in the interview.

July 28: Scaramucci's wife files for divorce and Reince Priebus resigns

One week into Scaramucci’s role as communications director, it appeared that he’d won the battle against his longtime rival Priebus, who resigned White House Chief of Staff on Thursday.

While things seemed to be smoothing over in Scaramucci’s professional life, the New York Post reported there was also turbulence in his personal life. According to the tabloid, his wife of three years had filed for divorce because of his “naked political ambition.”

Amid the reports, the Scaramucci tweeted that “civilians” should be off limits.

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 (@Scaramucci) July 28, 2017

July 29: More details about his wife, Deidre Ball, emerge

More details emerged about Scaramucci’s wife Deidre Ball, 38, who reportedly filed for divorce in the ninth month of pregnancy.

When his wife gave birth to their son on July 24, Scaramucci wasn’t there and was instead on the road in West Virginia with Trump, according to the Post.

He allegedly texted his wife, “Congratulations, I’ll pray for our child,” when their son was born, but a representative for Ball told the New York Times that was not true.

July 30: John F. Kelly takes over Team Trump

One day before retired Marine Gen. John Kelly was set to take helm of the Trump's team, questions began swirling about if White House staffers, including Scaramucci, would report to the new chief of staff.

When Priebus was in charge, Scaramucci made clear that he reported directly to the president, not Priebus.

In interviews, both Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, and Senior White House Adviser Kellyanne Conway would speak for their other colleagues, though they said they would follow the new chief’s orders.

7月31日:被炒鱿鱼

约翰·凯利刚刚上任几个小时,《纽约时报》就报道称,斯卡拉穆奇已经卸任白宫联络办主任一职。

据《纽约时报》称,正是约翰·凯利要求将他解雇的。

白宫新闻发言人萨拉·哈克比·桑德斯在一份声明中表示,斯卡拉穆奇之所以离职,是因为他觉得“最好让约翰·凯利幕僚长能够从头打造自己的团队”。(财富中文网)

July 31: Scaramucci is fired

A few hours after Kelly was sworn in, the New York Times reported that Scaramucci was out as communications director.

According to the Times, General Kelly had requested his removal.

In a statement, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Scaramucci was leaving his role because he thought it was “best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team.”
