Anthony Scaramucci became a household name after being appointed as the top media and communications person for the White House. However, after a few short days and an expletive filled interview, he was forced to resign on Monday.

His resignation came after reports stated his wife had filed for divorce. Other reports said Scaramucci had even missed the birth of his son because he was with Donald Trump.

Now, Scaramucci is taking heat from reporters after hackers just bested him online. The attack came as hackers pretended to be Scaramucci’s ex-colleague, Reince Priebus. They used a fake email account to communicate with Scaramucci, reported Sarah Palin’s website.

“Masquerading as Priebus, the prankster emailed Scaramucci’s official account using a mail.com account on Saturday, the day after Priebus’ resignation was announced,” reported the site.

“I had promised myself I would leave my hands mud free,” wrote the fake Priebus, “but after reading your tweet today which stated how ‘soon we will learn who in the media who has class, and who hasn’t,’ has pushed me to this. That tweet was breathtakingly hypocritical, even for you. At no stage have you acted in a way that’s even remotely classy, yet you believe that’s the standard by which everyone should behave towards you? General Kelly will do a fine job. I’ll even admit he will do a better job than me. But the way in which that transition has come about has been diabolical. And hurtful. I don’t expect a reply.”

The very real Scaramucci responded: “You know what you did. We all do. Even today. But rest assured we were prepared. A Man would apologize.”

The Fake Priebus wrote back: “I can’t believe you are questioning my ethics! The so called ‘Mooch,’ who can’t even manage his first week in the White House without leaving upset in his wake. I have nothing to apologize for.”

Actual Scaramucci responded: “Read Shakespeare. Particularly Othello. You are right there. My family is fine by the way and will thrive. I know what you did. No more replies from me.”
