Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci appeared on MSNBC on Thursday morning and got into an interesting exchange with host Stephanie Ruhle. As Ruhle pressed Scaramucci on the details released in the upcoming "Fire and Fury" book about the first year of the Donald Trump administration, the conversation took an interesting turn.

Mooch on MSNBC

When Donald Trump got elected president in his shocking defeat of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, questions were raised as to who he would surround himself with in the White House.

In July, Sean Spicer stepped down from his roles as White House Press Secretary, which he was eventually replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and White House Communications Director. Filling the void was Anthony Scaramucci, a former investment banker with Goldman Sachs. However, Scaramucci's tenure lasted only 10 days after he made derogatory remarks about various members of the administration in an interview with the New York Times, including then Chief Strategist Steve Bannon who he claimed tried to "suck his own p*nis." After the excerpts were released from the aforementioned "Fire and Fury" book my Michael Wolff, it was revealed that Bannon had turned on Trump, insulting both the administration and members of the president's family.

These issues and more were discussed during a January 4 interview with Scaramucci on MSNBC.

Joining host Stephanie Ruhle on Thursday morning, Anthony Scaramucci was grilled over his thoughts on the release of the "Fire and Fury" book and issues relating to Steve Bannon.

After being asked if he felt "vindicated" following his previous criticism of Bannon, Scaramucci replied, "I don’t feel so much vindicated as I would like Steve to knock it off and rejoin the team."

Looking stunned, Stephanie Ruhle asked Anthony Scaramucci to clarify his remark about Bannon rejoining the team, reminding him that "You said six months ago that you think Steve Bannon tries to suck his own p*nis!" "Now you’re saying he should, you know, get on board, get on the team??

"So lets talk about that since you wanna bring that up. This is MSNBC, my favorite network," Anthony Scaramucci said sarcastically. "I’ve never come on a show without being honest about how I feel," he continued. Scaramucci then defended his comments by saying that Steve Bannon is often all about himself, and recommended that the head of Breitbart "knock it off" and get back on board.
