The Evil Coward Clown Anthony Scaramucci

Anthony Scaramucci. Sometimes the name tells you what's in the tin:

From Wikipedia:

Scaramouche: also known as Scaramouch, is a stock clown character of the Italian commedia dell'arte (comic theatrical arts). The role combined characteristics of the zanni (servant) and the Capitano (masked henchman). Usually attired in black Spanish dress and burlesquing a don, he was often beaten by Harlequin for his boasting and cowardice.... Scaramouche entertains the audience by his "grimaces and affected language". Salvator Rosa says that Coviello (like Scaramouche) is "sly, adroit, supple, and conceited". In Molière's The Bourgeois Gentleman, Coviello disguises his master as a Turk and pretends to speak Turkish. Both Scaramouche and Coviello can be clever or stupid—as the actor sees fit to portray him.
Anthony Scaramucci is not on the White House payroll and may never be, as his company cannot be sold until August 15, and there is only one prospective buyer -- a Chinese company that is paying far more for his company than it is worth -- a point that departing White House Chief of Staff Reince Preibus pointed out back in January as a clear indication that this was a kickback deal of some kind.

Meanwhile, Scaramucci's wife has just given birth to a baby AND filed for divorce this week.

Scaramucci was not there to see his baby and still had not seen it two or three days later -- he was too busy blowing into the deflated President Trump in an effort to size him up and make him look substantial. Total failure there!

Of course, the late Freddie Mercury knew it would all come to this. Don't believe it?  If you have an iPhone, tell Siri: "I see a little silhouetto of a man" and see what happens!  Amazing!
