The New York Times published an opinion piece written by an anonymous senior White House official who described a "two-track presidency" in which top officials are "working diligently from within to frustrate parts of agenda and his worst inclinations."
Founder of SkyBridge Capital and Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci joined Fox News Radio's Guy Benson and Marie Harf to discuss the New York Times opinion piece.
On New York Times op-ed: This is the reason the countries absolutely disgustingly hates Washington D.C. and almost every element of Washington D.C. and so there's cowardice in the anonymity. I said in July of 2017 in my short tenure in the White House that there were forces inside the building that were quote-on-quote trying to save the country from the President of the United States. I just want you to imagine the ego that goes into that. Here is a democratically elected official, leader of the free world, leader of the country, but yet these people think that they are smarter than him and their smarter than the people who elected him. So, they're there to stop him and thwart his agendas. In my opinion their insubordinate and their traitorous to the United States. In their act of supposed patriotism they are actually traitors.

On if he thinks it's ethical for NYT to publish this: I think it's ethical because of the spirit of the free press and the First Amendment. I think it's cowardice of the person writing it in seeking anonymity, but I do think it's ethical. It's a disgusting day for America. It's a poor representation of everything people hate about Washington. In the meantime, despite all these obstacles the guy's doing a pretty good job. (2:51)
On the idea that Trump is erratic: Who is he going to trust? He doesn't know who to trust inside the room to really have an honest and clarifying conversation who will give him real advice because he is learning that the people he hired actually don't like him and are trying to stop him. That could make somebody paranoid. There's no question about that. At the end of the day I don't always agree with the President, but I'm hear to give constructive advice in things that I think will help him have a better life and an easier job. On the other hand there are these people who are telling him how great he's doing and then running out to these journalists and snickering and I know why they're doing it because they're cockroaches that live in the restaurant of Washington D.C.

On how much of Woodward's book is true: I do think people say nasty things about each other. We're in a fishbowl society now where everybody's got a phone, a camera, and a microphone so everything's getting picked up and it's getting passed onto the media. I don't think the Reagan administration had any less nastiness going on or the Clinton administration. I think people just have a tendency in a competitive high power to say nasty things about each other. If they want to walk back and pretend they didn't say it that's fine. At the end of the day the American people don't care. (13:38)
