Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Wednesday accused New Yorker journalist Ryan Lizza of recording him without permission.

In a tweet, Scaramucci called Lizza “the Linda Tripp of 2017” over the explosive interview that ultimately cost him his job

Two decades ago, Tripp secretly recorded some of her conversations with Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern who had an affair then-President Bill Clinton

In response to a question, Scaramucci called Lizza a “lowlife”:

However, in this comparison, Lizza being Tripp would mean that Scaramucci is Lewinsky ― a detail that not only drew immediate attention but also launched dozens of wisecracks:

Scaramucci will have a chance to clarify his comparison on Monday, when he’s scheduled to be a guest on Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” on CBS.
