Does that seem like someone who is totally unbothered by Scaramucci’s public rejection of him in a variety of interviews and tweets this month?
Remember, always, that Trump’s Twitter feed is a direct line to his mental and emotional state. Trump’s allies — in the White House and outside of it — can say whatever they want, but what really matters is what Trump tweets. If he tweets about it, he cares about it. Bigly.
Which begs the question: Why does Trump care so much about Scaramucci’s rebellion?
The answer is, as always with Trump, tied directly to how he views the world: There are only two kinds of people — the pro-Trump ones and the anti-Trump ones. People who have been pro-Trump for a long time, or at least before he was elected president, he keeps closer and values more. Those are his OG people, the ones who have been with him from the jump.
It’s not a big group — and it’s mostly family. But there are a few non-family members in there — and Scaramucci was one. When those pro-Trumpers turn on him, Trump goes bananas.
Then, Cohen flipped — entering into a plea agreement to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller and the Southern District of New York on several investigations into Trumpworld. Trump didn’t take that decision well.
In short: Hell hath no fury like Donald Trump scorned.
