Scaramucci Post lambasted for posting Holocaust poll


The Scaramucci Post, the new media outlet created by President Trump’s former communications director Anthony Scaramucci, is getting lambasted for posting a poll about the Holocaust on Twitter.

The poll, which has since been deleted, asked people if they knew the number of Jews who were murdered during the Holocaust:

Naturally, the tweet received serious condemnation on Twitter:

An apology was posted on Scaramucci Post’s Twitter account:

Since the apology has been posted, the Scaramucci account re-tweeted tweets defending their poll:

Others didn’t think that Scaramucci Post’s apology was adequate:

According to CNN’s Jake Tapper, Scaramucci himself was infuriated by the poll and that “at least one person is getting fired.”

Scaramucci created his media outlet after he was fired from his short-lived position as White House communications director. He intended his new publication “to be the center lane in a two-lane highway.”
