Quiet modesty has never been Anthony Scaramucci‘s thing, so it’s not surprising the former White House Communications Director is reportedly boasting that the White House wants him back.

But it’s a story the Mooch is calling “fake news.”

According to the Daily Beast, Scaramucci, whose brief tenure in the White House was an iconic lesson in self-defeating self-promotion, is bragging about how much Trump’s inner circle misses him.

The former White House communications director has privately told friends and associates that the president and other members of the Trump family, including White House adviser and first daughter Ivanka Trump, miss him and want him back in the West Wing. Three sources close to Scaramucci have independently told The Daily Beast that the Mooch continues to brag that he and President Donald Trump talk on the phone, and that the Mooch believes his resurrection in Trump-world could be imminent.

The Daily Beast reported that people have said Mooch claims he’s also flying to either D.C. or Florida to consult with the president. But after the story dropped Sunday night, Scaramucci took to blasting the Daily Beast for its reporting.

When challenged about saying there are no standards left in journalism anymore, the multimillionaire played the victim card.

Scaramucci also retweeted a friend of his who said the story was nonsense.

Although he is railing against fake news, Scaramucci’s most notable moment since leaving the West Wing was when his media venture openly pondered how many Jews had been killed in the Holocaust.
