Anthony Scaramucci calls Trump's decision to speak every night of the Republican convention 'beyond ridiculous'

Anthony Scaramucci, who spent 11 days as the White House communications director before he was removed from the position, said Sunday that President Donald Trump was exhibiting "classic narcissism" by planning to speak at every night of the Republican National Convention. "But, knowing his personality, he thinks it's the right way for him to do it. He thinks it's all about him, him all the time," Scaramucci told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday during a broadcast of "State of the Union." "The classic narcissism is to annihilate everybody around you and then show everybody that you can do it all alone, you can do it by yourself." He continued: "It's all about me and watch me. I'm going to win this without your help. And so I'm sure he was advised by some smart, somewhat courageous people inside the campaign not to do that. That level of saturation is beyond ridiculous."

It's typical for a party's nominee to speak on only the final night of the convention in a speech to formalize the person's nomination to the top of a party's ticket. Former Vice President Joe Biden, for example, delivered a speech from Delaware last Thursday — the final night of Democrats' virtual convention. Last week's Democratic National Convention featured a broad coalition of speakers, including Democrats like former President Barack Obama and the former first lady Michelle Obama as well as some Republicans, including former Gov. John Kasich of Ohio and former Secretary of State Colin Powell. Members of the president's family make up half of the list of keynote speakers scheduled to address Republicans at the event.

It's never about America. It's always about Donald Trump, the Trump family, and the Trump brand.

To be fair, Trump IS the only thing that matters to Trump voters.

Of course Trump wants to speak every night of the convention. The entire purpose is to inform voters of HIS policies.

The DNC was about 2% Biden, 8% Democratic platform, and 90% BLM. Biden hadn’t even campaigned on multiculturalism, which was the entire convention theme.

Focusing on Trump is a strength. We’re not trying to hide our candidate. Or pretend he’s something that he’s not.

Well now I have a reason (beyond not caring) to avoid watching the GOP's convention.

Thanks Trump!

He does not have 'policies' per se. There isn't even any ideological or philosophical guiding principles beyond his 'gut instincts' These 'policies of reform' change every time he opens his mouth. They have the structure of an amoebae or a cracked egg in a frying pan. That is why its impossible to negotiate with Trump and come up with a secure position and get anything done on a topic he gets involved in. That is why there will not be a platform which describes his legislative goals in any concrete form. Its cult behavior deriving an absolute loyalty to a figurehead, rather than any substance.

Its a fascinating dynamic to see in action. He has all kinds of political power because the republican base is 80% behind him, but Mitch McConnell cannot get Trump's power focused on passing real legislation, because nobody can get Trump to take a stance and hold it for longer than 48 hours. its why there is no health care 'reform' no immigration 'reform', no tax 'reform', no actual foreign policy successes. etc. Trump himself is a shallow superficial vessel. Pretty much empty inside.

There needs to be a running "Fasc-O-Meter" that leverages AI to replicate and simultaneously trans-literate Trump's speeches alongside some other famous fascist autocrats. You can even build a buffer for Trump's a-v to make up for any processing delay on the output, and then you'd have perfect sync.

and the RNC is about 0% Republican platform, 0% QAnon, and 100% Trump.

All Hail King Trump.:allhail
