In the span of ten days, Anthony Scaramucci got a new job, immediately found himself in trouble while doing his job, and subsequently losing his job. While he was compacting in a short time what most people take an entire career to “achieve,” a personal distraction for a man who became quickly known as a distraction himself became public.
In what was already a news-filled Friday for the White House “leakers” worst enemy, a different type of leak revealed that Scaramucci’s wife was ending their marriage.
The wife of the now former White House communications director split from her husbandabout five months ago. Weeks away from giving birth to their second child, Deidre Ball filed for divorce from the Wall Street financier on July 6 in Nassau County Supreme Court.
She began dating her soon-to-be ex-husband in 2011 before they married in 2014. The couple has two children, one born on July 24, one week before the baby daddy found himself bounced for his bombast. Apparently, the new job took priority as he chose to be with his new boss rather than his wife.
Initially, rumors swirled that the “Mooch’s” support and supposed naked ambition to work for the Trump administration frustrated his wife and led to the filing. While Deidre was apparently not onboard the “Trump Train,” that allegation was quickly shot down by Jill Stone, Ball’s lawyer.
For Scaramucci, this would be his second divorce. Using the President’s preferred form of public communication, he took to social media to tweet implications of domestic discord.
Not to mention perhaps a final shot across the bow from his White House office directed at media’s coverage of his personal issues.
