New White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is going after the media after the New York Post reported that his second wife has filed for divorce. Scaramucci didn’t deny the Page Six story, which reported that 38-year-old Deidre Ball is ending her 3-year marriage with Scaramucci, 52, over his successful quest to get close to President Trump, whom she reportedly despises. Instead, he called out the coverage of the report, which he said will reveal “who in the media has class and who doesn’t.”
According to reports, Scaramucci and Ball married
back in 2014. The couple have two children together – Anthony Jr. and AJ.
The news caps off a chaotic week for Scaramucci, whose profane interview
with The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza dominated news coverage just as Republicans
were attempting to pass a “skinny” repeal of the Affordable Care Act, commonly
known as Obamacare. During the interview, Scaramucci called former
White House chief of staff Reince Priebus “ a f— paranoid schizophrenic,
a paranoid” and claimed chief strategist Steve Bannon was trying to build
his own personal brand off “the strength of the president.” After
the interview was published, Scaramucci said he’d refrain from using “colorful
language,” but stopped short of apologizing for his comments.
