Krauthammer’s Take: Scaramucci’s Comments Demonstrate ‘The Degradation of the Presidency’

Charles Krauthammer criticized White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci for comments he made about fellow White House staff, including Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon:

Being a New Yorker is no excuse. This is the degradation of the presidency. This is what we have come to. None of us have ever seen this. The reason is, it’s not to be done. That type of language is not to be used, particularly when it’s infighting in the White House. The fact that the president is allowing all this to go on, I think it means it rests with him. He’s the only one who can actually restrain this. He appears not to. Perhaps he believes Scaramucci is the guy who will clear the swamp in the White House, but this is really disgraceful.
