Anthony Scaramucci uses interpretive dance to describe chaotic 11 days in Trump’s White House

'This is interpretive dance, also known as 'Mooch moves,' the ex-White House communications director says

Scaramucci to Colbert: 'If it were up to me, Bannon would be gone'

Anthony Scaramucci has an unofficial new job after his historic, 11-day stint in Donald Trump's White House: performing interpretive dance numbers for the media.

The political consultant and entrepreneur used what he described as "mooch moves" during an interpretive dance video that has since gone viral, apparently reflecting on what it was like to work in the administration.

"This is interpretive dance, also known as 'Mooch moves,' for my time in the White House," he said in a video shot for New York Post.

His emotions while working under the president seemingly ran the gamut, according to his interpretive dance (sorry — "Mooch moves").

Mr Scaramucci uses a tear drop motion to describe the sadness he felt on day four of the job, when he missed the birth of his son to attend the president’s visit with the Boy Scouts Club of America, saying, "Son is born, I’m missing that, that’s a very big bummer for me."

He adds, "another sign I had to get out of the White House."

Mr Scaramucci has once again returned to the lime-light, taking interviews with numerous outlets and performing guest appearances on The View, in order to promote his new book, titled Trump, the Blue-Collar President.

As his former boss attacks the press over "fake news" and "dishonest" reporting, the former White House communications director has transformed into a regular daytime talk show guest and star of viral Internet videos about his brief tenure serving in the White House.

Near the end of the dance, Mr Scaramucci suggests he was elated to have been let go by Mr Trump, getting down on his knees and clasping his hands together.

“Day 12, thank you God that it’s over,” he says.

The ex-communications director was quickly let go from his position after stirring major controversies in just a matter of days, including the foul-mouthed lambasting of his White House colleagues to a New Yorker staff writer, who published a story on the pair’s phone call shortly after.

Fortunately for Mr Scaramucci, things appear to have turned around. Perhaps all it takes to overcome hardship is dancing like nobody is watching.
