The New York Post is depicting President Trump’s White House as an episode of the reality show “Survivor” on the cover of its Thursday paper.

"Reince is a f------ paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci told New Yorker writer Ryan Lizza.

“They’ll all be fired by me,” he said of the White House communications staff. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus — if you want to leak something — he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.”

Scaramucci also went after Bannon, saying he was only in his job for media attention.

“I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” Scaramucci said. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the f------ strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.”

The Post cover also includes Sessions, with whom Trump has feuded for the past week over his decision to recuse himself from the ongoing investigation into potential ties between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

Trump said last week that he is “very disappointed” Sessions’s decision to recuse himself from the Justice Department's investigation into Russian election interference, adding that he would have never hired Sessions if he knew he would recuse himself.

In an interview with Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, Sessions said Trump’s criticisms of him were “hurtful.”
