Anthony Scaramucci Quoted Disgraced Joe Paterno About ‘Honor’ [VIDEO]

New White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci quoted on CNN this morning the late Penn State coach Joe Paterno while complaining about leaks to the press. Paterno was fired by Penn State in 2011 for his role in the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Scaramucci called into CNN after his financial disclosure report was published hours earlier. Although the form was public information, Scaramucci still felt it was leaked.

โ€œWhy donโ€™t you honor the job?โ€ Scaramucci told New Day anchor Chris Cuomo. โ€œRemember Joe Paterno? What would he say? Act like youโ€™ve been there before. Act with honor and dignity and respect and hold the confidence of the presidency and his office.โ€

The call into CNN followed the leak of Scaramucciโ€™s financial disclosure form. Scaramucci tweeted โ€“ then deleted โ€“ a call for the FBI to investigate the leak, calling it a โ€œfelony.โ€ He tagged White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. Then, the New Yorkerโ€™s Ryan Lizza tweeted that Scaramucci really wanted the FBI to โ€œinvestigate Reince for leaking.โ€ Scaramucci then denied the report, writing, โ€œWrong! Tweet was public notice to leakers that all Sr Adm officials are helping to end illegal leaks.โ€
