- Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said he "crossed a major item off my bucket list" during his infamously short tenure in the White House, and the story caught former Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders off guard, according to her forthcoming book.
- "I assumed he would say something like, 'riding on Air Force One,' but instead Mooch said he'd just 'taken a huge s— in the West Wing,'" Sanders writes.
- Everyone else in the van on its way to the 2017 Boy Scout Jamboree was "speechless," according to Sanders.
- As for The Mooch, she writes that he called his son immediately after the bathroom trip in question.

Even though he was only at the White House for 11 days, Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was able to check one "major item" off his West Wing bucket list.
In her forthcoming book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House", Sarah Huckabee Sanders describes a previously unreported Scaramucci anecdote, recalling a distinct comment she says he made to her on the way to Trump's speech at the 2017 Boy Scout Jamboree in West Virginia.
"I'm proud to report I crossed a major item off my bucket list today," Scaramucci, one of the shortest tenured senior White House officials in American history, told Sanders on the ride over, according to the author and former White House press secretary.
"I assumed he would say something like, 'riding on Air Force One,' but instead Mooch said he'd just "taken a huge s— in the West Wing,'" Sanders writes.
"The rest of us in the van sat there speechless as Mooch proudly told us he'd immediately called his son afterwards."
Scaramucci has the dubious distinction of being the Trump White House senior official with the shortest tenure on record. He was White House Director of Communications from July 21 to July 31 in 2017.
According to the White House, Scaramucci was given the axe after 11 days in the hours following the swearing-in of John Kelly as Chief of Staff in order to give Kelly "a clean slate."
But unofficially, Scaramucci's interview with Ryan Lizza of the New Yorker was linked to his ouster.
In it, Scaramucci made derogatory comments about senior Trump officials, including Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon.
"Reince [Priebus] is a f——- paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac," he said. He also had critical words for then-Trump strategist Steve Bannon: "I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own c—."
