White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci follows gay porn star Blake Mitchell on Twitter.
Mitchell noticed the follow yesterday. His response? Confusion like us.
“Wait… what?” Mitchell tweeted out with a screenshot/receipt of the follow.
The Twitter monitoring website DOESFOLLOW confirms it as well.
“Given that Scaramucci follows nearly 168,000 people, his following a gay porn star could of course be an accidental follow. But, Scaramucci doesn’t follow any other gay porn stars (a check of 20 popular porn star names, including several other Helix models, all came back with “nope” on the audit list) or adult entertainment accounts. So, maybe Scaramucci simply enjoys a good Blake Mitchell selfie just as much as everyone else does?”
Str8UpGayPorn also suggests that the follow is because Scaramucci is a huge Superman fan, and “Mitchell has been repeatedly compared to the fictional superhero by his fans on Twitter for years.”
Scaramucci was in headlines earlier this week not for following gay porn stars on social media, but for a bonkers phone interview he gave to a reporter from The New Yorker.
Here is an excerpt:
“‘The swamp will not defeat him,’ he said, breaking into the third person. ‘They’re trying to resist me, but it’s not going to work. I’ve done nothing wrong on my financial disclosures, so they’re going to have to go fuck themselves.’
Scaramucci also told me that, unlike other senior officials, he had no interest in media attention. ‘I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,’ he said, speaking of Trump’s chief strategist. ‘I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.'”
We’re not sure how he knows so much about self-sucking or self-fucking. Perhaps he has seen one too many Helix Studio videos.
Once I did some stalking, I realized that Scaramucci also follows me on Twitter! I don’t look like Superman and I don’t do gay porn (they said not to call them, they will call me), but I am gay as fuck.
Does Scaramucci’s social media tendencies reveal about this married heterosexual man serving a very anti-LGBT president?
Let’s check his Tumblr and find out.
