Anthony Scaramucci, Trump's new communication director:

Scaramuccia (literally "little skirmisher"), also known as Scaramouche or Scaramouch, is a stock clown character of the Italian commedia dell'arte. The role combined characteristics of the zanni (servant) and the Capitano (masked henchman). Usually attired in black Spanish dress and burlesquing a don, he was often beaten by Harlequin for his boasting and cowardice.

As per the Daily Beast, "Anthony Scaramucci Loved Hillary, Gave to Obama, and Deleted Anti-Trump Tweets". Previously Scaramucci accurately described Trump as a "hack politician" whose rhetoric is "anti-American and very, very divisive". Maybe it's just a case of rich people with Russian connections sticking together?
