Anthony Scaramucci, self nicknamed “The Mooch,” briefly served as the White House Director of Communications from July 21 to July 31, 2017. Days into the job, Scaramucci provoked controversy after an expletive-laden interview with The New Yorker‘s Ryan Lizza, in which he made obscene and strongly derogatory statements about several members of the Trump administration. Ten days after the announcement of his appointment, he was fired by President Donald Trump on the recommendation of the new White House Chief of Staff, John F. Kelly.
Anthony Scaramucci’s book, “Trump: The Blue-Collar President,” was friendly, as was his appearance on Celebrity Big Brother. He talks about being close to the President’s inner circle “regularly” and considers himself a media “surrogate” for the administration. He says he also expects to play a role in Trump’s re-election campaign. As such, we’d expect a NDA to be signed, even if he didn’t sign one initially.
Non Disclosure Agreement / Non Disparage Agreement:
Scaramucci denies signing an NDA, but is date inspecific. It is not very far fetched that he didn’t have a NDA during his 10 day tenure, given he did not work for the Campaign and did not spend very long at the White House. However, we strongly suspect he has since signed one. He was very peculiar on Celebrity Big Brother- kind of like a man who just got a Cease and Desist. He claims he simply was cast as a temporary guest, but Team Trump clearly took exception to Omarosa’s appearance.
