The "Scaramucci Model" is the strategic play of hiring temps to perform actions that would otherwise cause negative optics for established players. It's kind of like using a pawn, an expendable piece, to take out a rook (much higher value) in the game of chess. This move is named after Anthony Scaramucci, who served briefly as the White House Director of Communications from July 21 to July 31, 2017. During Anthony's temporary stint, both Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer were outed as untrustworthy. Matthew Whitaker is another example of the Scaramucci Model in effect -- he was able to deftly remove blockades during his time as Acting Attorney General. Temps can be very dangerous to those who are targeted!
