The White House in All Its Derogatory Frat House Glory

Trump White House Fraternity

This is not a condemnation or slight towards fraternities as many diverse fraternities do serve an exemplary communal purpose. While many incorporate a sense of shared belonging, there are certain houses that espouse notoriously classist, hyper-competitive exclusivity that run counter to upholding social values.

Kellyanne Conway is the embodiment of a tokenistic fallacy for her gender and as an actual Counselor to the President. She as well as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Omarosa Manigault, and Hope Hicks are more representative of the ultimate frat-boy groupies running around the frat house in full dress, respectfully.

Really who does this?

Conway’s despicable in defense of Trump tropes which are laden with misdirections and untruths are cringe-worthy attempts at being a Trump loyalist, rather than a true Counselor to the President. Real loyalty to Trump would be better served in truly advising and informing the president on how to be more presidential, democratically — in terms of what is good for the country and not what many see as an autocratic self-absorbed patriarchal savior of this country.

Conway’s recent flattering of the 10-day stint of White House Communications Director Anthony Scarmucci reveals much of her thought processes, ill-conceived perceptions, and die-hard loyalty.

“Anthony is an American success story by any measure,” Kellyanne Conway, counselor to The President, told The Post. “He’s someone who breathes the rarified air of Harvard Law School, Goldman Sachs, enormous wealth and wildly successful, but he never forgot his roots and for all his celebrity, maintains his humility. He doesn’t need the job [of Communications Director] and the hassle that comes with the long hours and short fuses.”

Hmm. Wow. That would make a great obituary. But really though, what is truly rarefied is this absurd presidency and the hot, toxic, and stifling air surrounding this administration. The fact that the President of the United States actually appointed a hedge fund manager who recently sold his majority stake in Skybridge Capital in January 2017 to a Chinese conglomerate to then become Assistant to President Trump and director of the White House of Public Liason and Intergovernmental Affairs is needless to say, in-te-resting 🤔.

The Pledge

Even though Scaramucci was angling to get inside of the White House/Frat House he was somehow named senior vice president and chief strategy officer for the U.S. Export-Import Bank in June 2017, in what a White House Advisor called a “temporary move” as reported by Politico . The Atlantic reports however, that former fratboy/chief of staff Reince Priebus blocked his intentions and rerouted Scaramucci to that temporary post.

The convenient location however, just across from the White House had Scaramucci slithering his way across the street from time to time where the President was most impressed by his defense of all things Trump, in forcing a retraction with CNN, “the Mooch” was credited with showing initiative and gusto. His professed love of Trump has also come at a cost as it may have contributed mightily to his wife Deidre filing for divorce while 9 months pregnant last month.

“I love the president, and I’m very loyal to the president, and I love the mission that the president has,” — Anthony Scaramucci at his first White House Briefing.

I guess so! In fact, so much so that Scaramucci was not in attendance at the birth of his child James in the hospital, but according to the Post’s [Page Six] he did send a congratulatory note to his wife Deidre for a job well done. That’s loyalty…I guess. Or was it the fresh smell and allure of that copious amount of counterfeit political currency that is just too sumptuous to ignore.

The new love affair did start off rocky though, as Scaramucci once described the Donald as a “hack politician” when Trump called for a tax increase on hedge fund managers. But the “Mooch” as he is affectionately known was able to smooth things over with his love. And during this newfound coupling there was of course some nagging done by the Mooch’s new love as he so eloquently mentioned during a Friday briefing and reportedly by The Atlantic

“He brings it up every 15 seconds,” Scaramucci joked to the press corps on Friday. “I should not have said that about him.” He said he personally apologized “for the fiftieth time” to the president for saying it. “I hope some day, Mr. President, you will forget it.”

That’s just sweet.

As the bromance blossomed, Scarmucci’s closer relations became more visible and pronounced with Spicer’s exit and the removal of Priebus thereafter.

Both Scarmucci and Trump have a lot in common. Narcissism, self-interest, and opportunistic charlatans. Both have contributed to the Democratic party because of necessity, the Mooch has even contributed to the 2004 Obama campaign. Both had a thing for Clinton until she spurned them with her gall of wanting to become America’s first female president. And both are potty-mouthed bullies who have a love/hate relationship with politicians and the underclass. They represent a selfish, double-talking, self-dealing, disingenuous class all their own — the plutocracy. In true hot-headed Hedge Fund Manager style Scaramucci made these insightful statements to New York Magazine, that …

“the other thing I have learned about these people in Washington,[…]is they have no money. So what happens when they have no fucking money is they fight about what seat they are in and what the title is. Fucking congressmen act like that. They are fucking jackasses.”_Anthony Scaramucci

Huh! This guy, a Hedge Fund Manager, in one of the most unscrupulous and heavily investigated industry, was tapped to be the White House Communications Director. I guess most people are not much aware of the criminogenic environment that Scaramucci made his fortune from.

The distinction of being moneyed plays well in this frat house. But then of course there is the culture of hazing that one must be subjected to. Not everyone gets through the hazing process of this White House/frat house which has most recognizably become a hazing ground for the president to exercise his remarkable pledging of loyalists. I wonder who’s next to get paddled through?!?!
