It looks like President Trump’s well-known vetting process yielded yet another dud. From TTAG | Trump’s New Comms Director: More Gun Control is ‘Just Common Sense’:
President Trump has appointed Anthony Scaramucci as his new communications director, a move which resulted in Sean Spicer’s resignation earlier today. It also prompted something else: celebration from Michael Bloomberg’s employees at Everytown for Gun Safety.
It seems that Scaramucci has made some strident communications of his own in the past in support of strict gun control measures and Bloomberg’s bunch is declaring victory.
Following the Sandy Hook shooting that killed 20 children and six adults in 2012, Scaramucci tweeted that he has “always been for strong gun control laws.” In another tweet, Scaramucci implied that keeping a gun in a home may give the “illusion of security, but more likely to cause you harm.” Additionally, Scaramucci tweeted that when it comes to guns, “it is just common sense [to] apply more controls.” In 2016, he tweeted that “killings went down” when “guns were taken from people who put their fellow citizens at risk.”
So, is the White House now being infiltrated by gun control advocates? It certainly seems so: Moms Demand Action, Everytown | New White House Communications Director Scaramucci Says he has “Always Been for Strong Gun Control Laws”.
