In his upcoming book “Trump, the Blue-Collar President,” Anthony Scaramucci details how he missed the birth of his son last year while he was by the president’s side as the short-lived White House communications director.
“I’d been with the president in West Virginia at a Boy Scout Jamboree when our son, James, was born three weeks early in New York,” writes the SkyBridge Capital founder who spent 10 dramatic days in the administration.
The Mooch’s second wife, Deidre Scaramucci, had filed for divorce while eight months pregnant.
He recalls in the book out Oct. 23 of the tough time, “Deidre and I were fighting all the time. My wife believed that I had put my job at the White House ahead of her and our first son, Nicholas. I guess I had. I’d become involved in politics because… I’d hoped I could someday be in a position to influence policy. I found myself in that position faster than I could have imagined — at the side of the President of the United States. When you’re in the middle of a dream, it’s hard to see anything or anyone else — even those you care about the most.”
In the book he admits, “I take responsibility for my actions, I was wrong.”
But he also slams the media including Page Six for reporting on his personal life, opining “that didn’t give the media the right to publicize my personal troubles for clickbait or to sell newspapers.”
The couple’s reconciled and Scaramucci said publicly this week at a premiere of a new doc on himself, “Mooch,” “Deidre, I love you… We repaired our relationship. Thank you for staying with me!”
In his upcoming tome, the father of five also reflects on balancing business and family: “I paid for my success with hours stolen from my family, with moments missed, and memories that I buried to make room for things that I thought were most important but weren’t.”
Recounting an emotional, proud trip to visit his grown son AJ, he writes, “Ask any dad, when you look into your adult child’s eyes, most of the time a six-year-old looks back at you.”
