Mario Cantone Just Out Mooched Anthony Scaramucci On 'The View'

He told the co-hosts on "The View" that he was offered the White House communications director job on January 17, "and then there were all kinds of cockamamie stories that came out that delayed my arrival into the administration".

EXTRA SPICE: Spice Girls (L-R) Victoria Beckham, Melanie Chisholm (Mel C), Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Melanie Brown (Mel B) pose for a photocall at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich ahead of their news conference later today on June 28, 2007 in London, England.

"But because he's an anti-globalist and he was hitting that economic forum at Breitbart for many years, that put me at disfavor with him", he said.

"If you read Breitbart, there's a lot of that white national economic fervor", The Washington Times quotes Scaramucci as saying, referring to the website Bannon founded and is now working for again after his time at the White House.

Spicer said recently that Scaramucci's arrival on the White House team led to his decision to resign.

Scaramucci said that reports he called Spicer "Melissa McCarthy", a reference to the actress who portrayed Spicer on SNL, were inaccurate.

Mario's Mooch warns current White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that her days are numbered (Scaramucci interjects that Sanders is "great"), he jokes about not getting "facials with Steve Bannon", and he compares Trump to agita caused by bad cheese.

Perhaps the most eye-popping incident of his short tenure as communications director occurred when he blasted Bannon and former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus to The New Yorker. "I had zero friends in the white house". You thought that was a good relationship? I love Donald Trump. You guys may disagree with him'. Scaramucci pondered later, responding to a question.

'I think the world's very complicated ... I believe in forgiveness, so I think the answer is a qualified yes.
