Newly minted White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci addressed his past criticisms of President Trump during Friday’s press briefing and says he’s apologized countless times.
Scaramucci was hired to run the White House communications team Friday and was forced to publicly address a 2015 video wherein he called President Trump a “hack politician”.
When questioned about his prior statements during Friday’s briefing, Scaramucci joked that the President “brings it up every 15 seconds”.

Scaramucci then addressed the topic in full seriousness:
“I love the president… One of the biggest mistakes I made cause I was an unexperienced person in the world of politics . . . I should have never said that about him, so, Mr. President, if you’re listening, I personally apologize for the 50th time for saying that… I hope that some day, Mr. President, you’ll forget it.”
