Actor and Trump supporter Scott Baio Has been named Director of Communications for The White House.
Telling Fox News' Judge Jeanine Pirro that Trump personally called the long time republican actor late last night to offer him the position. In an interview with this reporter Baio said that he is "fed up" with Republicans and now considers himself a conservative independent, but values Trump's forthrightness and can't wait to get roll his sleeves up and get to work.
Baio will meet with Trump Thursday morning the White House confirmed earlier today.
He then meet with the White House press corps early Friday afternoon in a wide-ranging news conference.
Like Scaramucci, Baio doesn't have communications experience. So who will Baio learn from? "The president himself" said Baio. “The best messenger, the best media person, the most savvy person in the White House is the President of the United States and I will learn from him. I can play the part in a believable way until i become the part." said Baio
When asked about what it would be like to report to a General Baio replied" A general is equivalent to a direct in the world I come from. His word is law. You follow his orders. occasionally you offer a suggestion knowing full well, it may not land. And you accept it. I would not have become the big star I am if I did not know how to take direction".
The actor, well-known for his roles on the TV series Happy Days, its spinoff Joanie Loves Chachi and Charles in Charge, expounded on his departure from the Republican party, saying, "They've lied and conned and B.S.ed us so now I am an Independent. "
"They're going to attack President Trump because he is not one of them and we need somebody to relentlessly, attack the left, attack the extreme right, attack the media and all those who do not get on the Trump train. It's the only way we're going get the Presidents agenda moving forward".
Baio comes froma long list of Hollywood supporters for Trump, including Jon Voight, Ted Nugent, Aaron Carter, Kid Rock, Stephen Baldwin and Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson.
