Trump’s New Communications Director Thinks Legal Weed Is Creating Cities Full of “Pot Zombies”
Anthony Scaramucci took the White House podium for the first time yesterday, and the internet spent the rest of the day digging up all the dirt they could find, including some reefer madness.

Sean Spicer is unemployed. The bumbling, stumbling White House Press Secretary officially resigned yesterday and was almost immediately replaced by self-described “American entrepreneur” and Trump golf buddy Anthony Scaramucci. But while “the Mooch” took the storied podium yesterday to tell the American public that Trump would be doing “a lot of winning,” everyone else was busy looking through Scaramucci’s old tweets to find out what really makes him tick.

And while Trump has been famously quick to disparage anyone who so much as looks at him funny, Scaramucci’s public opinions show that the New Yorker has tweeted in support of increased gun control, gay rights and Hillary Clinton’s competence. But while he may be a little more liberal-leaning than his predecessor, when it comes to weed, “the Mooch” is directly in line with Spicer, Sessions and the rest of the right wing’s fear mongering pot pariahs.

In a tweet from 2015, Scaramucci quoted a story from Bloomberg News predicting Washington State’s expected cannabis sales revenue and put his own bit of reefer madness on the report of  legal weed success.

The post, in which Scaramucci claims that the “overuse” of legal weed is “creating a zombie apocalypse,” was unearthed by cannabis activist Amanda Reiman, has yet to come to fruition, with no such reports of brain eating or mindless, arm-extended wandering.

Someone should tell Anthony that Washington D.C. also has legal weed and make sure he’s been taking cover from the mindless, stoned masses since moving to the nation’s capitol.

It is not exactly clear what made Scaramucci a viable candidate for the highly visible White House position, other than his relationship with Trump, of course, but we’re gonna guess that “the Mooch” won’t be the last talking head to take the podium and speak for Donald.
