Anthony Scaramucci probably is hoping you don't see these tweets.

Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communication director, has deleted tweets in which he criticized President Donald Trump—his new boss.

While Scaramucci may not want the public to see what he tweeted about the man he will defend on a daily basis, the internet is written in ink, not pencil.

Scaramucci also gave an interview on Fox Business in 2015 that didn’t paint his now-boss in the most positive of light.

“He’s a hack politician,” Scaramucci said on the news channel. “He’s probably going to make Elizabeth Warren his vice presidential nominee with comments like that. It’s anti-American, it’s very, very divisive. I’ll tell you who he’s going to be president of, and you can tell Donald I said this–the Queens County bullies association. You gotta cut it out now and cut out all this crazy rhetoric.”

President Trump is originally from Queens, New York.

He continued:

“I don’t like the way he talks about women, I don’t like the way he talks about our friend Megyn Kelly, and you know what, the politicians don’t want to go at Trump because he’s got a big mouth and he’s afraid he’s going to light him up on Fox News and all these other places. I’m not a politician. Bring it.”

Scaramucci ended the segment by calling Trump an “inherited money dude from Queens County” and predicted Trump would “implode” in the presidential race.

Scaramucci was named the White House’s communications director on Friday, ultimately leading to the resignation of former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
