Why Is White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci Following Gay Porn Star Blake Mitchell On Twitter?

Posted July 27, 2017
There’s nothing wrong with following a gay porn star on Twitter (and if you’re going to follow any gay porn star, following Blake Mitchell would be a wise choice), but why is White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci following gay porn star Blake Mitchell?

Scaramucci is a married heterosexual man serving a very anti-LGBT president, but as Blake Mitchell revealed earlier today, Scaramucci is in fact following him on Twitter:

Str8UpGayPorn did an independent audit using the “DoesFollow” app to confirm the follow, and it’s true. Scaramucci follows Blake:
Given that Scaramucci follows nearly 168,000 people, his following a gay porn star could of course be an accidental follow. But, Scaramucci doesn’t follow any other gay porn stars (a check of 20 popular porn star names, including several other Helix models, all came back with “nope” on the audit list) or adult entertainment accounts. So, maybe Scaramucci simply enjoys a good Blake Mitchell selfie just as much as everyone else does?

Of course, it’s possible that Scaramucci is not aware of Blake Mitchell’s work in adult entertainment, and he’s actually just a fan of people who look like Superman? As noted in a 2011 profile and photo shoot, Scaramucci is a huge Superman fan, and Blake Mitchell has been repeatedly compared to the fictional superhero by his fans on Twitter for years. 

The Scaramucci profile and photos, along with pictures of Blake as Superman posted recently:
When I was sent to photograph him for Bloomberg Markets magazine, the one thing that jumped out at me was his unabashed love for all things Superman! Every wall and surface in his office has Superman memorabilia…posters, painting, games, sculptures…it was like I got sent to a 12 year-old kid’s room, and not the office of a Master of the Universe. But I quickly understood how this street-smart Harvard Law School graduate who wants “…to be the Peter Lynch of the hedge-fund industry!” held the Good vs. Evil metaphors that are at the center of every Superman cartoon close to heart, so we ran with it… 

Whatever his reasoning, following Blake Mitchell might be the only smart, sensible thing Anthony Scaramucci has ever done, so hopefully he’s enjoying all the tweets.

On a related(?) note, Anthony Scaramucci gave a literally insane interview to the The New Yorker today, in which he mocks Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon by suggesting that he’s so desperate for media attention, he sucks his own cock:
Scaramucci also told me that, unlike other senior officials, he had no interest in media attention. “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” he said, speaking of Trump’s chief strategist. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.” (Bannon declined to comment.)
UPDATE 7/28/17:
It’s been less than a day since the Scaramucci/Mitchell news was first published here, and now, via Page Six, comes news that Scaramucci’s wife has filed for divorce:
Deidre Ball, who worked as a vice president in investor relations for SkyBridge Capital, the firm he founded in 2005 and sold to ascend to the White House, has filed for divorce from “The Mooch” after three years of marriage after getting fed up with his ruthless quest to get close to President Trump, whom she despises.
One source told Page Six, “Deidre has left him and has filed for divorce. She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C. She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits’ end. She has left him even though they have two children together.”
