Anthony Scaramucci once again appeared to comment Saturday morning on a report that his wife, Deidre Ball, has filed for divorce, taking aim at the media.
“Family does not need to be drawn into this. Soon we will learn who in the media has class and who doesn’t. No further comments on this,” the new White House communications director tweeted.

Page Six first reported Friday on Ball filing for divorce. The article cited Ball’s frustration with Scaramucci’s political ambitions and support for President Trump.
After news broke of his divorce, Scaramucci asked to “put my family in your thoughts and prayers & nothing more.” He also said he could “take the hits,” but asked the press to “leave civilians out of this.”
The two were married in 2014.
Scaramucci, a former Wall Street financier, went on a vulgar rant against White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, chief strategist Steve Bannon, and leakers in a New Yorker story published Thursday night. Trump revealed Priebus’ ouster on Friday.
Scaramucci has taken a hard line on leakers in the Trump administration giving information to the press, promising “dramatic action” to stop them. In the New Yorker interview, Scaramucci said he wants to “fucking kill all the leakers.”
