The wealthy financier came to prominence last month when he was appointed and then later dismissed as White House Communications Director. Now he insists that he is a gay rights activist and marriage equality supporter in New York City and around the globe, insisting that not only straight people deserve a happy healthy life, and his Roman Catholic faith was not the obstacle for such a position. “I’m actually very socially inclusive as a human being, and I’m a Republican because I believe that you need free market principles to create class mobility,” he said. Asked if the President shared his views, Scaramucci said: “I can’t speak for him. I can only speak for myself.” During his time in the White House, Scaramucci gained notoriety as a hothead after telling a journalist that White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was “trying to suck his own c**k”. While Scaramucci was serving under Trump, the Justice Department filed a legal brief arguing against legal protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation.
