‘BIG BOY’

Scaramucci: Criticism of Threatened Lawsuit Against Student Paper Is ‘Baby-ish’

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci called criticism of his threatened lawsuit against a Tufts University campus newspaper “baby-ish.” Scaramucci said he threatened to sue a student and the newspaper for publishing an unfavorable opinion piece because students “can’t flat out lie” about him. The column was penned by Camilo A. Caballero, a graduate student who called for Scaramucci to be removed from the advisory board of Tufts’ Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. “You can’t play in a big boy or a big girl pond and then, if you don’t like the reaction that someone has to you, you can’t claim, ‘Well, wait a minute. I’m not in a big boy pond,’” Scaramucci said. “[Fletcher students] are 25-26 year-old adults,” he continued. “They’ve got to hold themselves in an adult world very shortly.”
