MSNBC Compares Scaramucci to Mobster John Gotti

New York Times reporter Bret Stephens made the comparison presumably because both are Italian-Americans.

New York Times columnist Bret Stephens compared new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci to Italian-American mobster John Gotti on MSNBC on Thursday.

“Listening to that clip, it’s like hearing ‘The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People’ reinterpreted by John Gotti,” Stephens said.

“Did you hear that?” MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle asked the camera, laughing. “I’m going to need you to say that again.”

Stephens repeated his comparison, at which point Ruhle declared, “That’s amazing.”

Gotti was a boss of the Gambino crime family in New York City from the late 70s until his imprisonment in the early 90s.
