Mooch vs. Mouth­piece show is pitched

New York Daily News - - NEWS - Chris Som­mer­feldt

SOME­TIMES THE Mooch is stranger than fic­tion.

Trump-boost­ing ex-White House aide An­thony Scara­mucci may soon get his own TV show to butt heads with high­pro­file Trump critic Michael Ave­natti, ac­cord­ing to net­work in­sid­ers.

Prominent TV agent Jay Sures has re­cently pitched a show con­cept to CNN and MSNBC in which the Mooch would square off against Ave­natti in a po­lit­i­cal tête-à-tête, CNN me­dia cor­re­spon­dent Brian Stel­ter con­firmed via Twit­ter.

The New York Times first re­ported Sures’ out­reach. Mul­ti­ple spokes­peo­ple for CNN and MSNBC de­clined to com­ment.

Both Mike and the Mooch both threw cold wa­ter on the prospect of the show hap­pen­ing.

Scara­mucci (photo), the one­time White House com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor, tweeted the name of the show should be “Not Hap­pen­ing.”

Ave­natti, the Stormy Daniels lawyer who’s su­ing Trump and his at­tor­ney Michael Cohen and has be­come a cable TV fix­ture, tweeted, “I have no in­ter­est in tele­vi­sion right now.”
