Scaramucci Post deletes Holocaust tweet after backlash

The former Trump aide kicked off his ambiguous project with partner Lance Leifer, who like Scaramucci is a hedge fund manager.

While I was out of the country my social media director posted a poll on the Holocaust, in an effort to promote Holocaust education and awareness in the wake of an offensive Halloween costume depicting Anne Frank.

He claimed the poll was meant to highlight the general public's ignorance of facts relating to the Holocaust. He is the founder of a pay-for-click web search engine called Bay9 Inc., he runs Old Forge Media, and he also works at a investment advisory firm. And embarrassed Anthony & people associated with him.

Laifer also received publicity in 2007 when he made it his mission to raise as much money as possible for malaria research. For the GQ interview, when asked what it is he does, Laifer said that he tries "to synthesize social media management with business plans".

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. Scaramucci's poll is asking people if they really think Nazis killed fewer Jews than that, advancing a form of Holocaust denialism. "What The Scaramucci Post is going to represent is a center lane". "We are glad The Scaramucci Post took it down".

Anthony Scaramucci was sharply criticized for this tweet, including by the Anti-Defamation League, which noted that the question of how many Jews were killed in the Holocaust has been resolved.

(For what it is worth, at the time the poll was pulled, 32 percent of the 4,776 respondents were giving incorrect answers below 5 million.) Those who doubt the scale of the horror need to visit the U.S. Holocaust Museum as quickly as possible. "[It] was clearly insensitive and could play into the hands of Holocaust deniers", he said, according to the Hill.
