In a 2015 Fox Business Network interview, Scaramucci called Trump a “hack” and a bully and said he didn’t like how the presidential candidate talked about women.
“He’s a hack politician. … I’ll tell you who he’s going to be president of — you can tell Donald I said this — the Queens County bullies association,” he said.
Now Scaramucci has shifted from criticizing Trump to telling reporters several times he loves the president. He also apologized for calling Trump a hack and said the president still reminds him of his previous comment
“I should have never said that about him,” he told reporters at his first press briefing Friday, adding later: “Mr. President, if you’re listening, I personally apologize for the 50th time for saying that.”
Trump weighed in Saturday morning, saying Scaramucci wanted to endorse him but didn’t know he was going to run. But as The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake pointed out, Trump had been a candidate for a month when Scaramucci called him a hack.
