Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci jokingly said in a new interview that President Donald Trump could use an intervention for his Twitter habit.
During an appearance on “Dr. Phil” that aired Tuesday, Scaramucci was asked about Trump’s use of Twitter to reach out to the American people — which at times can be controversial because of the content of his tweets.
“Those less-than-strategic tweets, they were usually when he was taking incoming criticism,” Scaramucci said. “I always found about the president that if he felt well-defended, that he stopped that sort of tweeting and he was a little bit more strategic with the tweeting.”
Scaramucci then continued, “I think the president has good intentions, but I do think he goes off the rails sometimes. Maybe you could have an intervention with him. We can bring you to the Oval Office, you could have an intervention with him.”
Scaramucci worked for Trump’s presidential campaign and later his transition team. Last summer, Trump hired him to serve as White House communications director. He was let go 11 days later at the advice of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
