Anthony Scaramucci is Bullish on Bearish Occasions
Nevertheless, whereas some are speeding to promote their property in worry, others make the most of the scenario to fill their pockets. Anthony Scaramuci, Trump’s former Comms director throughout his tenure within the White Home, is certainly one of them.
