There Are Power Stances, And Then There Are ‘Tony-Two-Socks-Fuggedaboudit’ Scaramucci Power Stances
White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci brought a whole new meaning to the term “power stance” with a recent photo of himself standing in the Oval Office.
Every man on the planet recognizes the role of the power stance, especially when somebody is trying to set the tone for the room. Well, it’s safe to say Scaramucci set the internet on fire when he fired his thumbs through his belt-loops with his jacket hanging over his hands as he stared down President Trump’s Chief-of-Staff Reince Priebus.
“It’s always important to pay attention to who else is in the room.” The story of that Scaramucci, Priebus shot. https://t.co/ZHkA41NbAj pic.twitter.com/ffpEJPz27q

Scaramucci and Priebus are standing in arguably the most important room in the world, and the former looks — as one person put it to me — like the Fonz from “Happy Days.”
Absolute power move.
Most people probably walk into the Oval Office, sit there silently and just do what they’re told. Not blossoming American legend Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci, who infamously said, “”I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock.”
It’s not just the stance but the look that’s equally important. I’ve seen that look before, and it’s almost always in a Clint Eastwood movie. That man looks like somebody who is prepared to draw out two six-shooters and hand out some Old West justice. That, my friends, is a man begging for somebody at the card table to draw.
If I worked in the White House, I would stay the hell out of this guy’s way. He’s a dude on a mission to screw stuff up, and he’s just daring somebody to question his alpha-male status. He might only be the White House Communications Director, but the Mooch is quickly on his way to becoming the most powerful man in the West Wing.
I don’t care if you love Trump or not, but anybody who thinks these mafioso/Clint Eastwood wanna-be characters in the White House aren’t awesome then you’re an idiot. I’m all in on the Mooch. One hundred percent all the way in on this guy.
Someone give this cowboy a revolver and lets see how he handles the D.C. rodeo.
