Scaramucci appeared on MSNBC on Thursday to opine that Trump "didn't do well" on his trips to Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas in the wake of the mass shootings in those cities. "Many say just let him act like that, but you're fracturing the institutions and all of the things that the country stands for". He claimed the president's words incite violence against minorities.
The former White House communications director cited the president's rhetoric and Twitter habits as a reason for the GOP to make a change.
Scaramucci's comments came while he doubled down on weekend comments that he thinks Republicans may need to replace Trump at the top of the 2020 presidential ticket.
Scaramucci, who served as White House communications director for a mere 11 days in 2017, has called Trump's attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color "racist and unacceptable".
In January this year, Scaramucci expressed support for the president, saying he probably would vote for Trump again.
In a statement, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said Scaramucci, "worked at the White House for less than two weeks and is certainly no expert on this president". He remained supportive and in October 2018 released a book, Trump: The Blue-Collar President.
After the interview, Scaramucci tweeted that people are right when they ask him what took so long to turn away from Trump. So I didn't pass the 100% litmus test. Scaramucci has been a major donor to Republican candidates, including Trump in 2016.
During an interview with Fox News on Monday, Marc Lotter said that Trump was, essentially, just saying what everyone else is thinking regarding the apparent suicide death of Epstein. I believe in the values and the policies of the Republican party.
"We are now in the early episodes of Chernobyl on HBO, where the reactor is melting down and the apparatchiks are trying to figure out whether to cover it up or start the clean-up process", Scaramucci told the news outlet, comparing Trump's presidency to the TV drama about the 1986 nuclear catastrophe in Ukraine.
He said: "The guy's dissembling a little bit, and he's sounding more and more nonsensical".
