The political analyst and writer Charles Ortel described the move as an absolutely “correct thing to do.”
“I think Anthony Scaramucci has accomplished a lot in his life; he is going through, as it turns out, his second divorce. It will probably be very difficult, the birth of a new child. And those comments were just so far over the top; it left Trump with no alternative but to do what he did do,” he said.
As to why Scaramucci – who had no experience in the industry – had initially been picked as a communications director, Ortel argued that “in his job, he was heavily involved in big industry conferences with very famous people.”
“He started out there in Las Vegas gathering hedge fund people. He has made many presentations. Did he go to journalism school? No. But did he have a lot to learn? Obviously, yes. Will he get a chance to learn it? Not so much,” he said.
