At a meeting of auto company CEOs in MI in March, Trump praised the executives and then said, "And then I look at Reince", drawing scattered laughs with a tone that suggested Priebus was a less impressive presence.
But in a follow-up interview on CNN's New Day Thursday morning, Scaramucci did little to dispel the notion that he was, in fact, putting Priebus on notice.
"I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own cock", he said, speaking of Trump's chief strategist.
President Donald Trump's new communications director exploded the smoldering tensions at the White House into a full-fledged conflagration Thursday, angrily daring Trump's chief of staff to deny he's a "leaker" and exposing West Wing backstabbing in language more suitable to a mobster movie than a seat of presidential stability.
"I sometimes use colorful language", he wrote.
Mr Scaramucci notably said he reports directly to the president, not to the chief of staff.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says she has nothing to add to Scaramucci's tweet.
Lizza said that Scaramucci tried to go around Priebus to talk to Trump, and later blamed Priebus "for cancelling three scheduled meetings with the president" before Scaramucci was eventually hired as communications director.
When Lizza refused, Scaramucci hilariously threatened to fire everyone on the White House communications staff.
Scaramucci later deleted the tweet.
Porsche set to leave WEC, LMP1
Porsche spends £250 million (RM1.4 billion) annually on its WEC programme, reports German outlet Frankfurter Allegemeine Zeitung . It's not known if Porsche plans to join a new series, but Formula E could be the most likely and effective option.
"In case there's any ambiguity in his tweet I can confirm that Scaramucci wants the FBI to investigate Reince for leaking".
In addition, he said he understood that his financial disclosures that Politico requested were publicly available.
"They've got to get this sorted out between the two of them, and it would be nice if they didn't do it in public", he said.
The disclosure form was available to the public because Scaramucci had been nominated earlier this year for a job at the Export-Import Bank of the USA, and the forms become public 30 days after they are filed.
"The swamp will not defeat him", he said, breaking into the third person.
After Politico reported on Scaramucci's public disclosure form, he suggested that it was leaked to the media by someone in the White House.
"We have seen an astonishing increase in the number of leaks of classified national security information in recent months".
"I'm very underwhelmed by this propensity to go out an pick - attack your own side", said Gingrich. I don't know if this is reparable or not.
Scaramucci expressed frustration on Thursday with the scrutiny of his personal holdings, and the conflict they may pose.
"You're an American citizen, this is a major catastrophe for the American country", Scaramucci told Lizza. When I said we were brothers. that's because we're rough on each other.
