EXCERPTS:  "“I’m also a gay rights activist,” Scaramucci said. “You can look it up. I’ve given to American Unity PAC, I’ve given to the Human Rights Campaign; I’m for marriage equality. 

As an organizer of SALT, an annual political and business conference in Las Vegas for hedge fund managers, Scaramucci had invited as a speaker TV personality and transgender Republican advocate Caitlyn Jenner. A report last year in the Huffington Post on business support for LGBT rights quotes him as saying, “We don’t want to be on the wrong side of history.”

On Twitter, Scaramucci has also criticized North Carolina’s anti-LGBT House Bill 2, calling the measure prohibiting transgender people from using the restroom in schools and government buildings “shameful.”"




Trump Taps New Communications Director Who Advocated for ‘Gay Rights Movement,’ ‘Pro-Choice’ Cause

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has appointed Anthony Scaramucci to be the new White House Communications Director—a man who has publicly stated his support for same-sex “marriage” and abortion rights.

“Republicans should support gay marriage,” he tweeted in 2012, again writing later that year in response to a follower, “I am not a partisan. For gay marriage, against the death penalty, and pro-choice. I am for social inclusion, fiscal responsibility.”
Just in November, Scaramucci wrote, “I support the gay rights movement and I am an active proponent of equality.”
On Saturday, after reports began to surface that some of Scaramucci’s past tweets seemed to conflict with the president’s views or appeared critical of the president, he advised that he would be deleting older posts, stating that his positions have “evolved.”

“Full transparency: I’m deleting old tweets. Past views evolved & shouldn’t be a distraction. I serve @POTUS agenda & that’s all that matters,” he wrote.
However, while some political posts from the past were indeed deleted, the aforementioned tweets expressing support for same-sex “marriage” remain as of press time.
“I hope she (Hillary) runs, she is incredibly competent,” dated 2012, was one of the tweets Scaramucci deleted, as well as “Walls don’t work. Never have never will. The Berlin Wall 1961-1989 don’t fall for it (dated 2015).”

He also deleted a past tweet about climate change and one expressing his thoughts on gun control.
“You can take steps to combat climate change without crippling the economy. The fact many people still believe CC (climate change) is a hoax is disheartening,” Scaramucci wrote in March 2016.
The entrepreneur and Fox News commentator, who also served on the Trump presidential transition team, assumed his role as communications director on Friday. Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced his resignation the same day, and was replaced by his deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the daughter of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee.
Trump thanked Spicer for his work in a statement, while also expressing confidence in Scaramucci.
“I am grateful for Sean’s work on behalf of my administration and the American people. I wish him continued success as he moves on to pursue new opportunities. Just look at his great television ratings. Sean will continue to serve the administration through August,” he said.
The president said of Scaramucci, “Anthony is a person I have great respect for, and he will be an important addition to this administration. He’s been a great supporter and will now help implement key aspects of our agenda while leading the communications team. We have accomplished so much and we are being given credit for so little. The good news is the people get it even if the media doesn’t.”
As previously reported, while the Trump administration declined to recognize June as “LGBT Pride Month,” Trump has made several supportive remarks over the past year about homosexuals, and sold “LGBT for Trump” t-shirts and pins during his presidential campaign.
“He (Trump) was the very first Republican nominee to mention the LGBTQ community at our Republican National Convention and was applauded for it. And I was there applauding with him,” Vice President Mike Pence, a professing Christian, told ABC’s “This Week” in February.
 Anthony Scaramucci Supported Abortion, Gay Marriage, Gun Control, & Obama

On Friday, Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci was announced as the White House's new director of communications, a new hire that reportedly spurred the resignation of Press Secretary Sean Spicer. The 53-year-old has no previous experience in government, having previously worked in business and as a host on the Fox Business Network. And, as internet sleuths have noted, some of Scaramucci's old tweets include anti-Trump and pro-liberal sentiments, a somewhat awkward reality given his new job.
Back in August 2015, while on Fox Business, Scaramucci called his new boss a "hack" and accused him of being a "bully" due to  critical remarks he made about hedge fund managers. Scaramucci actually addressed the matter of some of his anti-Trump rhetoric during his introductory press conference, calling it "one of the biggest mistakes" of his life and attributing it to his political inexperience.
The matter of his old tweets goes even further, however, because they include not just criticisms of Trump, but statements about policy that would probably place him somewhere in the neighborhood of centrist big-money Democrats, or quite liberal Republicans. For instance, he has voiced support for gun control, same-sex marriage, abortion rights, and policies to address climate change.

Now, this might all sound foreboding for Scaramucci's chances of sticking in the job, or holding Trump's favor as the days and weeks roll by. But the essential, underlying this is this: Since the 2016 presidential campaign season really started rolling, Scaramucci has been a vocal and unapologetic Trump booster in every sense of the word.
His language when discussing the president during Friday's presser made this all the more obvious. He repeatedly professed his "love" for the president, and also insisted (contrary to an immense amount of polling data) that he's "loved" by the American public, too.
He even gushed over Trump's athleticism, which is not something you typically hear that often ― he claimed to have once seen Trump throw a football through a tire, as well as sink three-foot golf putts, which for the record, is not a particularly impressive feat for someone who spends as much time golfing as Trump does.
In other words, although his past personal policy beliefs might not square perfectly with those of the GOP establishment or of Trump himself, you can feel virtually guaranteed that these past tweets and comments aren't going to be a problem. Because when it comes down to it, Scaramucci has made it clear that he's a Trump man now, and there might not be anything more important to his long-term job security.
