Does that name conjure up memories of a fictional swashbuckler, Scaramouche? The 18th Century French hero is from a 1921 book by Rafael Sabatini, and was featured in a movie in 1952. Today’s Anthony Scaramucci may have to do some heavy swashbuckling to improve the Donald Trump image.
However, these quotes from the Sabatini book seem to eerily describe Donald Trump. Will Scaramucci be able to communicate some Scaramouche bravery to succeed in his job? Consider:
He was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad.
Man never changes. He is always greedy, always acquisitive, always vile.
The stuff that makes fools of princes and princes of fools is money!
