Anthony Scaramucci’s unfortunate last day of his 10-day job at the White House included a phone call with comedian Joy Behar.
The co-host of ABC’s “The View” revealed that she reached out to Scaramucci after predicting that he would be gone from the White House soon. Her prediction took only hours to be proven correct.
“I was trying to get him on the show,” Behar said. “We’re Paisanos together, so, I called him and we had a very interesting conversation. Fortunately he learned from The New Yorker interview how to say the words ‘off the record’ so I can’t tell you too much. Also I’m under FBI surveillance at this point. But we had a great conversation, very juicy information, but I can’t say it.”
She went on to say that he seemed to be in a good mood and was shocked to hear that Behar was calling him.
“He was like, ‘is this really Joy Behar from ‘The View?’ My mother loves you!’” she recalled. “And in the middle of the conversation he said, ‘can I call you back, my mother’s on the other phone.’ He’s like a real mammoni. He’s an Italian boy with the mommy.”
