Anthony Scaramucci
(Mike Allen)

Is it weird that, after reading the bizarre interview the president’s new director of communications, Anthony Scaramucci, gave with the New Yorker this past week, I thought there was a decent chance he would deliver an uppercut to Reince Priebus on the White House lawn. I mean, Priebus got a figurative uppercut out of this current administration the next day, so I don’t think we were too far from seeing it.

It reminds me a bit of the recent NonDoc analysis about Oklahoma gubernatorial candidates aspiring to be pro wrestlers, but the White House feels more Street Fighter than WWE to me.

There’s some low-hanging fruit here — Trump as Bison (which I low-key alluded to in a comic during the Republican primary) — but I’ll wait to see how things shape up in the coming months to make any more silly comparisons.

Perhaps we can get Guile’s theme song at a press conference though….
