It was just a few days ago that Anthony Scaramucci became Donald Trump’s new White House communications director, a decision that prompted former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer to resign from his position. Now, it looks like Scaramucci’s new role is causing yet another exit – his own wife!
According to The New York Post, Scaramucci’s wife, Deidre Ball, has just filed for divorce because she is fed up with his “naked political ambition.” According to one source:
She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C. She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits’ end. She has left him even though they have two children together.”
The two had been married for three years, however, Deidre was becoming increasingly frustrated with Scaramucci’s desire to get closer to Trump, whom she cannot stand.
Another source close to Scaramucci stated that he hasn’t been wearing his wedding ring, and if he does he is wearing it on his right hand. According to this source, this disagreement about Trump was causing a lot of tension for the couple. They said:
Deidre is not a fan of Trump, and she hasn’t exactly been on board and supportive of Anthony and his push to get back into the White House.
Anthony is focusing on his children, his work for the president and the American people. There is nothing more important to him. I don’t know who Deidre thought she was marrying but anyone who knows Anthony knows he’s an ambitious man.”
Deidre reportedly deleted her account @MrsAScaramucci after Trump appointed her husband as his new White House Communications Director.
Trump is such a polarizing character, he can’t help but tear people – and the country – apart.
