ost-covfefe, the White House’s messaging would only get more farcical on 21 July 2017 when Donald Trump brought in one Anthony Scaramucci, a brawling Long Islander and ex-Goldman Sachs trader popularly known as “the Mooch”, as a substitute for the beleaguered Sean Spicer.

The Mooch certainly talked a good game, assuring the BBC’s Emily Maitlis he would restore order because he was a “straight shooter” who came from a long line of “front stabbers” (shivving an enemy between the shoulder blades, rather than confronting them face to face, was the work of a craven coward in his book).
