Anthony Scaramucci reveals joining Trump White House his 'biggest regret' in life

WASHINGTON – Flash-in-the-pan former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci’s “biggest regret” in life was joining then-President Donald Trump’s administration, he reveals in an upcoming episode of “Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test.”

In an advance clip provided to The Post, the investment banker said he was “ill suited” for the position – and Trump’s personality – in an interview with two ex-Special Forces members leading a group of 16 celebrities through intensive military-style training in the new reality TV show on Fox.

“Joining the Trump White House that was a big mistake. I got fired very quickly after 11 days. I was ill suited for the job that he gave me and I was ill suited for his temperament and personality,” Scaramucci said. “We were never going to get along because of the way he was operating the White House.”

The investment banker served in the White House from July 21-31, 2017 before Trump, 76, threw him out after his obscene rant about fellow aides was reported in The New Yorker magazine. He later became a regular critic of the former president.

The multimillionaire told the magazine’s Ryan Lizza that then-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus “is a ­f–king paranoid schizophrenic,” that he would ­“f–king kill all the leakers” in the White House and that “I’m not [then-White House strategist] Steve Bannon. I’m not trying to suck my own c- -k.”

Now the multimillionaire is working alongside a new list of notable names – including Spice Girls singer Mel B., “7th Heaven” actress Beverley Mitchell and reality TV show host “Dr. Drew” Pinsky – on the reality show.

The crew will participate in military exercises simulating those that service members endure during the real – and highly classified – Special Forces selection process, “pushing themselves in the ultimate test of their physical, mental and emotional resilience and revealing the celebrities’ deepest and truest character,” according to Fox.

The Mooch’s remarks will air in a new episode Wednesday, during which the celebrity recruits must rely on each other to break their fall from a sky-scraping cliff.

In the exclusive clip, a sweaty Scaramucci tells the ex-military commandos that he joined the show to honor service members.

“If you’re somebody like me that really loves the country, you want to be in a position where you have empathy for people that are serving like this,” he said.

Anthony Scaramucci served just 11 days in the Trump administration.

Told that the training would get “tougher” and “more uncomfortable,” Scaramucci said he “just had to keep my physicality, that’s all.”

“Till you guys throw me out, I’m here,” he added.

“That might happen,” the veterans responded.
