  • “He’s an amazing politician.”
  • “I’ve seen this guy throw a dead spiral through a tire. I’ve seen him at Madison Square Garden with a topcoat on. He’s standing in the key; he’s hitting foul shots and swishing them, all right? He sinks 30-foot putts.”
  • “What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President’s agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people.”
  • “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock…I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.”

“He’s a human pinky-ring.” — Seth Meyers, on Anthony Scaramucci

Loyalty.
