The Mooch, King of the Nouveau Riche Italians

Blog | By James Fletcher | Jul 19, 2020

Few people are more typical of New York than Anthony Scaramucci (“Whaddya mean are the diamonds on my lapel flag real? I’m a nouveau riche Italian. Of course they are”). After a 9 day career at The White House as President Trump’s Chief of Communications, he went back to his hedge fund. Here he is explaining the tribute he partly funded to the sand miners whose work played a pivotal role in the construction of Manhattan. His father worked there for 41 years under harsh industrial conditions. Scaramucci has atoned for his support of Donald Trump for president and can often be seen on the world media prosecuting the case for Trump’s removal from office.
