Nils Lofgren and Anthony Scaramucci Beef on Twitter
The weirdest feud of 2018 was between Real Housewives star Teresa Giudice and Chief Keef, but Nils Lofgren and Anthony Scaramucci are making a strong case for 2019. The E Street Band guitarist started the beef yesterday, calling the former White House communications chief an “ass wipe” for defending soon-to-be former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
The Mooch responded, calling him a “10th Fiddle intellect.” He tweeted, “No one knows who he is. . . A complete joke.” Of course, Scaramucci was the punchline in the end when musicians and celebrities started calling him out. David Crosby tweeted, “Nils is so much more of a human being than you, Mooch.”
“There’s your problem moochster, I’m not worried about my profile. That’s your thing,” Lofgren fired back. “I’m worried about this country that I love. Not working for this criminal enterprise you call a presidency.”
Lofgren took this viral moment to promote his new album, Blue With Lou. Scaramucci decided to call a truce in his final tweet, saying he “will go out and purchase the tracks.” He wrote, “Send me the link so I can retweet. Be nice. There is no need to go off on a stranger. @twitter is a place where humanity goes to die.”
