The New Yorker has released audio of the profanity-filled phone call between reporter Ryan Lizza and former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci that helped lead to the latter's firing.

Lizza on Thursday discussed the widely reported call with David Remnick, editor of the New Yorker. The two listened to excerpts from the Scaramucci conversation and analyzed what they said about the Trump administration.

Below is audio of the call and of Remnick's segment with Lizza.

In the original phone conversation, which was first reported last week, Scaramucci called former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus a "fucking paranoid schizophrenic." Priebus resigned the next day and was replaced by John Kelly, who had been serving as secretary of homeland security.

Scaramucci also castigated President Donald Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon.

"I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own cock," Scaramucci said to Lizza.


"I'm not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the president. I'm here to serve the country."

Scaramucci also threatened to fire the entire White House communications team to find out who was leaking information to the press. Scaramucci was removed from his position on Monday, the same day that Kelly was sworn in as White House chief of staff, after just 10 days on the job.

HuffPost interviewed Scaramucci after his firing, and the ousted White House official explained his controversial comments.

"Most of what I said was humorous and joking," Scaramucci said.


"Legally, it may have been on the record, but the spirit of it was off. And he [Lizza] knew that."

At the end of the interview, HuffPost asked about Scaramucci's next plans.

"I am now going to go dark," he said.

And then?

"Then I will reemerge." He paused. "As me."

Who cares? Lots of people I know talk this way and are extremely successful, paying lots of taxes on their income.

If the New Yorker's goal here is to raise Scaramucci's profile in order to make him more popular with Main Street America, it's working.

You get it that the language wasn't the biggest problem, right?

Odd they never release all the curse-saturated Soweeto or wookie tirades.

Especially when you consider how "oppressed" the two feel they are.

Where's the MSM?  No investigation into the Clinton Foundation either.   Only independent journalists are covering this stuff.  

Here's an interview by journalist H.A. Goodman of Charles Ortel, who's been investigating the Clinton Foundation.


Lots of money being given to the Clinton Foundation, with little oversight.

Yeah  like how did Bannon develop that kind of flexibility?    Those Chinese acrobat twins at Cirque shows, you can literally see that, but Bannon?   

lie_to_me's picture

Maybe he uses a doppelgänger?

I like Mooch, but he fucked himself.  Why the fuck would he call the opposition press and vent like that?  Anyway, this is yesterday's news and the press is just trying to to get some clickbait views and hammer Trump some more.  Like Bannon said, the MSM is the opposition...don't fucking forget it.

My running theory is that he came in for one purpose - cover for eliminating swamp monster Preibus.  That was a well needed termination and it went over without people freaking out about it because they were fixated on Mooch's gaudy style

GUS100CORRINA's picture

Previously, it was suggested that there was no good reason to fire "The Mooch" after just ten days

My response: I want to suggest that "The Mooch" might still be in the WH if the "MOOCH MELTDOWN" had NOT occurred. His own vulgar language outburst in the public square really hurt "the Mooch" immensely. If you are going to have a meltdown, do it behind closed doors.

What goes into someone's mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.

Let me be succinct prude. BULLSHIT (and I don't apologize for shouting.) If there was ever a time in U.S. history to use profanity to emphasize one's intentions this is the time.

Your comment says it all ... you and "the Mooch" must be roommates.

Things are so urgent that it is now appropriate for the communications director for the POTUS to talk like that? 

What does such profanity do for us? Please enlighten us

Why do you like Mooch?  Or anyone else for that matter.  Once you turn 25, if you are a fan of other adults, you are a fucking loser.

Too bad they bleeped out the good parts.  I knew there was something about this Mooch I liked.

Who gives a shit. I love how they try to throttle the dumps to keep the narrative away from the agenda. Why? Because they want the President to fail. The country fails. Ergo, they want the country to fail and become a big California piece of shit.

Most of America wants things as they were when we were producers and not worried about transgenders in the military, fag marriage, illegals crossing the border and turning the country into a bevy of light brown mongrels who enjoy shit culture and have the attention span of a goldfish and education level of a dumbass inner city failing school sixth grader.

The Onion Fact Check

  • “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock.”

    TRUE: Scaramucci understands that true inner peace comes from accepting one’s flaws and only very rarely sucking oneself off.


  • “I’ve done nothing wrong on my financial disclosures, so they’re going to have to go fuck themselves.”

    TRUE: Scaramucci’s financial records appear accurate, so under U.S. federal statutes his detractors are required by law to go fuck themselves no later than 10 business days from the date of filing.


  • “What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the president’s agenda on track.”

    PARTIALLY TRUE: He omitted that he also wants to fuck the leakers’ bitches in front of their kids and then carve a nice 6-inch souvenir on their face for their trouble.


  • “They’re trying to resist me, but it’s not going to work.”

    TRUE: The Mooch is hot, baby! Sizzling! Nobody can stop this kid!


  • “Yeah, let me go, though, because I’ve gotta start tweeting some shit to make [Reince Priebus] crazy.”

    FALSE: Priebus was driven far beyond the point of mental insanity by members of this administration many months ago.


  • “Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac. ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.’”

    TRUE: If you or someone you love is currently abusing cocaine please call this toll-free addiction hotline: 1-888-988-7934.


  • “Okay, the Mooch showed up a week ago.”

    FALSE: The Mooch has been slowly developing in Scaramucci’s troubled subconscious since his tender childhood.


  • “Get this through your head, you Jew motherfucker, you. You only exist out here because of me. That’s the only reason.”

    FALSE: Sorry, this is Joe Pesci in Casino. We got confused.


  • “I’m going to fire every one of them…the entire place will be fired over the next two weeks.”

    OH, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE BE TRUE: Seriously, please.


  • “This is a major catastrophe for the American country.”

    TRUE: This is the most accurate statement yet made by an administration official.

Why oh why can't I give you 1000 upvotes for that one. Thanks for the laugh.

Successful people vent all the time. The objects of their venting don't take it seriously. They continue doing business with them and golfing together. Leftist wage slaves don't understand this. When their boss offers even gentle feedback on their performance, they begin crying.

This makes me so angry.  Who amongst us has not had choice words with subordinates or colleagues at the office.  And then to have some little prick disclose confidential conversations.  Traitors like this Lizza character should be banned from journalism, permanently.  I hope his career goes to zero.  Those against Trump are total hypocrites and obviously have an agenda.  Pretty unpatriotic.

Now that's funny.  Trump needs to make this guy White house spokesman like tomorrow.

Never trust a reporter.

Journalists are like someone who gets paid to pretend to be your lover.  So like whores but dishonest.

The only way any of this changes is if the DOJ starts locking people up and hanging them in the puplic square. 

Just hang them on the white house lawn and leave their body there for a week. 

lie_to_me's picture

I'd cut their heads off and place them on a pike. (after a fair but hurried trial of course .) It's a better deterrent.

incharge1976's picture

Thought of that too. You could put them on the white house fence ala Game of Thrones.

The DOJ is entirely criminal. Phony as Superman. They aren't there to help. Be glad they haven't come already and dragged you off to Yellen's FEMA gulag. Get off your asses and do it yourselves.

Wrong. We need more profanity in DC. How about you whine about all the pedophiles and drug runners in Congress committing treason? I love the "Mooch".

Don't forget those involved with the Clinton Foundation in that list.  They took in $100 million for Haiti, but paid out only about 10%.  Also, the Clinton Foundation and its affiliiates have taken in about $100 BILLION from different entities, including foreign goverments, yet has never had an independent audit, which is required.  

Where is the MSM on this?  Oh yeah, they are too busy covering farm more important and classy stories like the Kardashians and Caitlyn.

mcmaster is the one who wanted him fired.  had nothing to do with the profanity.  that was mcmaster's excuse.  mcmaster is deep state and is himself on his way  out.  i hope the door hits him.

When he says he will reemerge "as me" I just keep picturing him going full Buffalo Bill in his basement.  "Would you fuck me?  I'd fuck me, I'd fuck me so hard."

The real question is how many news outlets did the pooch call before someone answered?  This guy was looking for his 15 minutes of fame and got it.  Maybe he can be a roommate with Anthony Weiner and have a reality sitcom named the Odd Couple Real World.  Two washed up politicians, one R, one D, one likes to watch young girls contort, one likes to watch middle aged men contort, both try to resurrect their political careers and their love life in the big city.

Good summation of the news today.  

-They have an actual newsworthy audio recording.

-Rather than just release it they talk over half of it, editorializing about what the listener should think.

The New Yorker, like the NYT and WaPo hates Italians with a passion. Very racist tabloids.

Mr. President, bring back the Mooch and General Flynn.

Jeff Sessions, empanel a grand jury investigating the Clinton Foundation, Anthony Weiner, Huma Abedin, buffalo Dona along with all the other dem luminaries. Forget about marijuana and stringent asset forfeiture laws. Re read Bill of Rights amendments 9 and 10. Then repent of your sins.

Lizza is what used to be called sanctimonious.

Since morals are making a comeback, so is sanctimonious behavior.

Vulgar language gets old quickly. Even so, I like Scaramucci. He loves and understands America. I'm not going to let language get in the way of communication.

What you say is more important than how you say it. No matter how beautiful Lizza's speech sounds, his meaning is sanctimonious, and therefore carries little or no weight. Scaramucci's speech is honest and genuine. He's not pretending to be something he's not.
