Scaramucci Post Gives Holocaust Deniers A Voice With Offensive Tweet

  • Scaramucci Post tweet

While it is generally accepted that 6 million Jews were systematically killed in concentration camps during World War II, the poll asked readers to say how many Jews they believed were killed - less than 1 million, between 1-2 million, between 2-3 million, or, more than 5 million. "I take full responsibility for it", the account tweeted.

Arthur Schwartz, Scaramucci's friend who has previously been quoted as his PR rep, also took issue with the poll in a number of tweets.

"I take responsibility for it and have put systems in place to ensure something like this can not and will not happen again", he wrote.

'This poll was put up by @lancelaifer without consulting @Scaramucci who is traveling in London.

He claimed the poll was meant to highlight the general public's ignorance of facts relating to the Holocaust. The poll has been taken down.

To deliver signal to people's devices, Loon needs be integrated with a telco partner's network - the balloons can't do it alone. Most of the recovery news has rightly focused on the hard journey to get Puerto Rico's power grid back online.

The tweet, which has since been taken down, appeared to be in response to tweets about an Anne Frank Halloween costume.

Today (Tuesday), former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, who was sacked from his position at the White House after 10 days, sparked a storm when a controversial tweet was posted on his new media page. Many users were outraged and considered the poll an act of Holocaust denial.

"Hopefully all of you've been enjoying the polling on the Scaramucci Post", Scaramucci said in a Twitter video on September 27. At the launch, Scaramucci infamously said he didn't know what the company would become, but apparently "alt-right egg avatar troll" was on the table. He never really clearly defined what this would be, but in recent weeks, it has mainly been a Twitter account that shares news from other sources and posts polls, some of which are somewhat sarcastic. "We are getting our news screeched into us", he added.

Scaramucci told a NY radio interviewer this month that his news outlet would 'be about what is right and wrong in the society right now, as opposed to what is left and right'.
