Anthony Scaramucci found his Twitter account locked after he fat shamed President Trump in a tweet on Thursday night. Scaramucci was suspended after he tweeted that Trump was "the fattest President since William Howard Taft" after the president mistakenly said one of his own supporters had a weight problem.
During his campaign rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Thursday, Trump mistakenly assumed one of his supporters was protesting him. The portly man snatched an anti-Trump banner away from a Trump protester. But Trump saw the banner and assumed his own supporter was dissing him.
Trump lashed out at his supporter, saying, "That guy's got a serious weight problem. Go home, start exercising." Trump later apologized to the man after realizing his mistake.
Scaramucci responded to Trump's error by tweeting a video along with the caption: "Said the fattest President since William Taft."
Scaramucci was immediately suspended by Twitter for fat shaming the president. He is now locked out of his account for 24 hours.
Responding to Axios, Scaramucci said he believed he was suspended for taking a jab at Trump's pot belly.
"I think it is related to 'fat shaming' President Trump," he said. 'I should have said he is the largest proportioned President since William Howard Taft. My bad."
Trump fired Scaramucci as his White House communications director after just 11 days on the job.
Scaramucci has since turned on Trump, saying he is mentally unfit to be president and dragging the president in the media.
