Laura Ingraham: Scaramucci Had To Go; All Trump Needs To Succeed Is “Message Discipline”


About Scaramucci she said: "I like him a lot as a person, but he had to go." "I was thinking if they were going to show Reince Priebus the door last week, it would have been even better if Scaramucci was shown the door at the same time," she added. "I've got a feeling that the weekend with bring changes, and General Kelly without a doubt did the right thing" she added. She explained in detail: "We've been saying this for months, and we will say it one more time: Message discipline requires one theme per day. You can't have 15 themes per day, you have one theme. If the theme is we're going to do tax reform, show me how you're going to roll it out, show me how the president is going to go on national television, and then you are going to anticipate the attacks from the Democrats and you are going to bat them down one by one. And you're going to start a national campaign for tax reform." "He knows how to win campaigns," she noted about the president. "They didn't really campaign for health care. That was a mistake. They turned it over the Capitol Hill. He needs to carry it over the finish line himself."

Lewandowski: General Kelly “Is The Chief-Of-Staff, He’s Not Chief Of The President”


Corey Lewandowski, Trump's former campaign manager, said Monday on 'The Laura Ingraham Show' that his supporters people want Trump "to be himself," and apply his unique talents to government. Lewandowski suggested that any attempt to change Trump would be met with failure. He suggested that if former Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly wants to be successful as White House chief of staff, he will learn "very quickly… to let Trump be Trump." "[Trump] doesn't want to change. And that's not what the American people voted for. They didn't vote to have Donald Trump change. They voted for him to be himself," he said. He added: "What I think General Kelly is going to bring is discipline to the staff. He's the chief of staff. He's not the chief of the president." "If [Kelly] is able to do his job –which I think he will– which will be limiting the backbiting and the infighting amongst the individuals who are serving inside the administration — that is a very, very important thing, and put everybody on one agenda, which is the Trump agenda," Lewandowski explained. More generally he wondered: LEWANDOWSKI: [President Trump] has not had a significant legislative accomplishment yet, which I think is a shame, considering the Republicans control both the House and the Senate and the White House, and they haven't moved that big legislative agenda that they should have done. You couple that with the fact that we have not started building the wall, we do not have tax reform done, we don't have repeal and replace done, we don't have a massive infrastructure spending bill done. And people are starting to question, you know, can anybody truly change a broken Washington, D.C.? "Instead, this president has gotten no credit for [appointing Supreme Court Justice] Neil Gorsuch, no credit for personally injecting himself into the removal of the U.S. citizens sitting in an Egyptian prison that he released, none of the credit for cutting the government regulations and trying to reduce the bureaucracy because [health care reform] is not done yet. And that has to get done. I've been very clear — if anybody makes pledges on the campaign trail and they don't fulfill those pledges, they need to be held accountable," Lewandowski added. He also commented on the 'Deep State': "There's also the fault of the administration for not filling all of the vacancies and getting rid of all of the holdovers of the previous administration," Lewandowski said. "And what we have seen is the 'deep state' is very real. And there are many, many, many individuals who continue to serve in senior positions inside the government that were there from the previous administration, and their job is to make sure that this agenda does not move forward. That is very clear. And that is part of the reason why [Trump's] approval numbers are not where they should be."

Gingrich: Scaramucci Is “Full Of Himself”


Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is "full of himself" on the Thursday broadcast of Laura Ingraham's nationally-syndicated radio program. "I think Scaramucci is full of himself, I think he got down here from New York and he is all excited; frankly he is talking more than he is thinking," Gingrich said. "He needs to slow down and learn the business. Scarramucci is not in the position of being a wealthy entrepreneur who says whatever randomly he thinks. His job should be to organize the communications of the President of the United States and help the president communicate with the country and picking fights internally doesn't get you there." Transcript, via the Laura Ingraham Show: GINGRICH: I think that Scaramucci had better be a lot more careful than he has been. He obviously likes the lime light he obviously likes being in the media. I would say right now he is being more pugnacious than effective. He ought to slow down a little bit and learn what he is doing. I think that he things he said about Reince, if he said them, where is his proof? I mean it's totally unhelpful having someone going around starting family fights in public and if he is going to be that divisive I'm not sure if he is going to be that useful to the president. INGRAHAM: Apparently he called into CNN and it could be the sole purpose of questioning Preibus. He went on to say Reince can speak for himself about whether he's the one who leaked his financial disclosure form. It turns out his financial disclosure form was publicly available and that's how the reporter got it. GINGRICH: I think Scaramucci is full of himself, I think he got down here from New York and he is all excited; frankly he is talking more than he is thinking. He needs to slow down and learn the business. Scarramucci is not in the position of being a wealthy entrepreneur who says whatever randomly he thinks. His job should be to organize the communications of the President of the United States and help the president communicate with the country and picking fights internally doesn't get you there. It may get you news coverage but he will learn very quickly that you can get news coverage lots of ways. This is a city where if you are in the White House you get plenty of news coverage. The question is whether or not it is useful news coverage or whether or not it gets you to where you want to go and I'm very underwhelmed by this propensity to go out and first of all go attack your own side and second that for the average American. You know the head by the way is the President of the United States it's not the Chief of Staff so I don't know what he is referring to with that use the of an old Italian saying he is certainly not suggesting that is the president. So I am very concerned that, I originally said he was a great asset I think he could be a great asset but I think he has to learn to be part of a team and be apart of some kind of plan process if he is going to actually live that out.

Fox Reporter Alicia Acuna Recounts Story Of Montana Congressional Candidate Gianforte’s Confrontation With Reporter


Fox News reporter Alicia Acuna was a first hand witness to the altercation Wednesday between Montana congressional candidate Greg Gianforte and a reporter for 'The Guardian' Ben Jacobs. However, on 'The Laura Ingraham Show' on Wednesday, she appeared to change her initial story, walking back claims that Gianforte grabbed Jacobs' neck "You know, and I'm the one who said that," Acuna told Laura Ingraham about the neck grab claim. "I saw both his hands go up, not around his neck in a strangling type of way, but more just on each side of his neck, just grabbed him and I guess it could've been on his clothes, I don't know." "Again, just to clarify, he didn't grab him by the neck with both hands in the way that was initially described, that's not quite accurate?" Ingraham asked at the end of the interview. "​No, so it wasn't like he grabbed him around the neck, he had one hand on each side of his neck," Acuna confirmed. Gianforte's campaign said in a statement that the candidate was trying to grab the reporter's recording device, which was being waved in his face.

Sebastian Gorka on Syria Strike: A Message Heard In Damascus, Tehran, Pyongyang


Trump administration national security adviser Dr. Sebastian Gorka joins the Laura Ingraham show: SEBASTIAN GORKA: Everything changed January 20. We don't give our playbook away. What's going to happen next? Nobody knows outside of the president's closer circle — Jim Mattis, Rex Tillerson, Steve Bannon, nobody knows that– and we're not going to tell anybody. That's why yesterday was a suprise attack, we don't telegraph in advance. All we know is that when evil happens and you are able to do something about it, you do something about it. This is the message we're sending the world: We're not here to fix everything, that's not what strategy and leadership is about. We're sending a very clear message, And I think the message has been understood in Damascus, in Moscow, in North Korea, in Iran as well. What happens next depends upon many factors, primarily if Moscow can understand the client state relationship is no carved in stone. When your satellites start to do things like Assad is doing there is a point at which the cost-benefit calculus breaks down.
