- Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is writing a pro-Trump book due out in September
- The tome, titled ‘The Blue Collar President: How Trump is Reinventing the Aspirational Working Class’ will discuss the president’s management style
- Scaramucci’s original concept for a book, about his brief tenure in the Trump White House, was rejected 39 times, according to the New York Post
Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci has finally found a way to sell his Trump book – he’ll be writing about the president’s distinctive management style.
The New York Post first reported that Scaramucci inked a deal with Hachette publishing to write a tome titled ‘The Blue Collar President: How Trump is Reinventing the Aspirational Working Class,’ which will come out in September.
‘It’s an entrepreneur writing about an entrepreneur who has now ascended into the presidency,’ Scaramucci told the Post, indicating the book will be a more positive review of the Trump presidency than the controversial ‘Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House’ by Michael Wolff.
Anthony Scaramucci is writing a flattering book about President Trump’s management style, which will hit bookshelves in September
Anthony Scaramucci (right), seen alongside Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (left) during his brief White House tenure, will argue in the book that President Trump doesn’t need a chief of staff, but also that his high turnover is OK
Scaramucci explained that the book examines ‘Trump as a strategist, as a communicator and why he probably doesn’t need a chief of staff but could rely on a core group of lieutenants like he did at the Trump Organization.
The comment comes as Scaramucci has waged a public war against the president’s current chief of staff, John Kelly, nicknaming him ‘General Jackass’ during a recent interview with Bloomberg Politics.
Scaramucci assigns much of the blame for low White House morale to Kelly’s management style.
‘There will be a further evacuation of talent,’ Scaramucci said. ‘Fear and intimidation doesn’t work in a civilian organization.’
‘If he had any honor he’d resign,’ ‘The Mooch’ said of Kelly.
Turnover at the hands of Trump was OK though, Scaramucci suggested.
‘The current turnover – not only is it not bad – but should be expected from a disrupter and chief,’ the former Trump aide said.
So far, according to research from the left-leaning Brookings Institution, President Trump’s revolving door of staff far outpaces that of his predecessors, with one third of senior level officials leaving during year one, a new record.
Scaramucci likely holds the record for the briefest tenure, though he says he was in his White House gig for 11 – not 10 – days.
Even so, The Mooch says he has seen Trump’s leadership style ‘up close and personal.’
‘And I know he has very good intentions and, being an entrepreneur, I am actually very comfortable with his operating style – despite the fact that I’m a casualty of it,’ Scaramucci said.
An earlier draft of a Trump-themed book, more focused on Scaramucci’s extremely brief tenure as communications director, was rejected 39 times, the Post reported.
