Scaramucci Says Kelly 'Ill-Suited' for White House Job: 'You Need a Less Militant Style'
Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci appeared on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday to react to a New York Times report about a physical altercation between White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Corey Lewandowski, an informal adviser to President Trump.
According to the Times, during the "near brawl" just outside the Oval Office, Kelly grabbed Lewandowski by the collar and tried to have him ejected from the West Wing.
Scaramucci, who was fired from his White House post by Kelly, said he has no ax to grind with the retired four-star Marine Corps general, but he's "very confident" that the incident occurred.
"I just think he's ill-suited for the job," Scaramucci said of Kelly. "You need a less militant style in a civilian organization. That's all."
He noted that Kelly also reportedly had a recent blow-up with National Security Adviser John Bolton over immigration policy.
"You can't be grabbing people by the collar or cursing off the national security adviser," Scaramucci said.
