Comments Off on Anthony Scaramucci: Wall Street Pinata

There’s a nice profile of CNBC contributor and hedge fund manager Anthony Scaramucci in Bloomberg today. However, the piece also reminds everyone of his ‘pinata’ comparison: Saying hedge funds and Wall Street felt like they were being bashed by a stick by the Obama administration, as if they were a pinata full of candy. This phrase caught the attention of Jon Stewart over at the Daily Show, which he jumped all over, of course.

What’s amazing is how Scaramucci says this pretty much in the midst of the financial crisis, as though Wall Street didn’t have any fault in the great financial crisis since the Great Depression.

Here’s Anthony Scaramucci talking to President Obama at a town hall meeting, the two actually went to Harvard law school together, and then below is the Jon Stewart video. If you have to say two things about Scaramucci one it he loves to talk…and he loves sell and sell and sell. I don’t think you want to buy what he’s selling though..

Stewart calls Scaramucci a “Jersey Shore breakout star” who’s oblivious to the country’s outrage at bailing out big banks.
