White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci posting a sexually explicit tweet in 2009 is a digitally manipulated image. There is no truth to an image that Scaramucci, who is deleting certain tweets from his Twitter account, once tweeted out a sexually explicit one.
How did this fake image gain traction on social media? It was being reported by several news outlets that Scaramucci had deleted several old tweets after he was hired by President Donald Trump as the White House’s new communications director. During this time, an image allegedly showing a sexually explicit tweet Scaramucci had posted several years before his recent hiring.

If you are curious, several news outlets such as the Washington Post, Time, and Deadline have documented the various tweets Scaramucci deleted in July 2017. Scaramucci himself said via Twitter that he was deleting old tweets, many of which criticized Trump.
Scaramucci wrote that he did want his “past views” to serve as a distraction. His tweets have already been repeated, recorded, shared and downloaded all over the internet. So even if Scaramucci deletes them, they still exist. The internet has already had a lot of fun with Scaramucci’s old tweets.
Full transparency: I’m deleting old tweets. Past views evolved & shouldn’t be a distraction. I serve @POTUS agenda & that’s all that matters

Scaramucci left Goldman in 1996 to launch Oscar Capital Management with his colleague Andrew Boszhardt.
