Harvard Directory Lists Anthony Scaramucci As Dead

It’s been a rough few days for Anthony Scaramucci.

Within the last 10 days, “The Mooch” was hired by President Donald Trump to fill the role of White House Communications Director; served divorce papers by his wife; and subsequently lost his job as White House communications director. And on top of all that, the latest edition of the Harvard Law School alumni directory listed Scaramucci as deceased:

The blink-and-you-missed-him former White House communications director is listed as deceased in the new Harvard Law School alumni directory, which arrived in alums’ mailboxes the very week that “The Mooch” became the most talked-about guy in politics. An asterisk by the 1989 graduate’s name indicates that he was reported dead since the last directory, which was published in 2011.

It’s unclear whether he was the victim of a prank — or just a typo. Harvard Law didn’t say, but the school was apparently crimson-faced over the flub. “Regrettably, there is an error in the Harvard Law School alumni directory in the listing for Anthony Scaramucci,” a spokeswoman told us in an emailed statement. “We offer our sincere apologies to Mr. Scaramucci. The error will be corrected in subsequent editions.”

On the contrary, Scaramucci is very much alive. But it would hardly be a surprise if one of Harvard’s uber-liberal students or alumni purposefully listed him as dead.

Again: Scaramucci has had a rough few days. But letting him go was for the best – Trump needs someone with a bit more decorum heading up his communications team.

Do you think someone purposefully listed Scaramucci as dead? Or was it just an extremely well-timed mistake? Share your comments below!
