Anthony Scaramucci worked longer as a Newsday delivery boy than he did as White House communications director.
That's one unavoidable take-away from a new book by the Manhasset financier who served in the Trump administration for just 11 days in July 2017 before being ousted. "Trump, the Blue Collar-President" was published Tuesday by Center Street, a division of the Hachette Book Group.
Scaramucci writes fondly of his childhood in Port Washington, the grandson of an Italian immigrant. He describes fishing on Long Island Sound and seeing the Mets play at Shea Stadium. At the age of 11, he got a paper route, delivering Newsday on a Schwinn 10-speed but personally walking papers up to the front porch — what he calls the "Scaramucci Touch." He also signed up households that weren't subscribers; "I was an entrepreneur from the start of my business career," he writes.
He explains that he eventually quit the job to play baseball at Paul D. Schreiber High School.
Scaramucci will discuss and sign copies of the book at Book Revue in Huntington on Sunday, Nov. 4.
