Anthony Scaramucci eagerly dishes on who he thinks was the 'most annoying, horrible person in the Oval Office'

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci appeared Friday on The View to dish about his fleeting tenure at the White House — and he didn't hold back. When Scaramucci was asked who he thinks is the "most annoying, horrible person in the Oval Office, the most unlikeable," he named not one person, but two. "How do you think I got along with Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon? You thought that was a good relationship?" Scaramucci said, describing the experience of working with them as "rough."

"What was Bannon's worst quality, in your opinion?" The View's Joy Behar asked. After naming a couple of Bannon's redeeming qualities, Scaramucci revealed that he thinks the former chief strategist "had a little bit of a messianic complex." "You know, people that have messianic complexes, they think they're the answer, they think they're the solution. And what we know about our country and we know about our government — thank God — it's set up as a system of checks and balances where it has to be a collaboration," Scaramucci said.

And then one of the hosts brought up the fact that some people think Bannon is a "white nationalist." "I would say that he has those tendencies," Scaramucci said.
