"It's obviously not acceptable," Scaramucci told CNN's Erin Burnett on "Erin Burnett OutFront" on Monday. 


"I would like to see him more turn the corner on this stuff and take the higher ground so that we can stop with this sort of nonsense on your great show and talk about all of the economic advantages that are taking place," he said. 

"I don't think he's doing the right thing, because he's the president of the United States and he's won. He's got a great policy in place. He's executing a broad-based policy that's leading to, by and large, prosperity in the United States," he added. 

Scaramucci was referring to a tweet from the president, in which he told Waters to be careful what she wishes for and called her an “extraordinarily low IQ person.”

"Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiThe Hill's 12:30 Report: Dems look to repackage BBB into salvageable bill The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Facebook - Biden clarifies his remarks on Russia Democrats hope to salvage Biden's agenda on Manchin's terms  MORE, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!" the president said. 

Waters on Saturday called on her supporters at a rally in Los Angeles to confront Trump Cabinet officials in public spaces like restaurants and department stores to protest the administration's policies.

Her call came as a number of Cabinet members and Trump officials have faced protests in public settings and just a day after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked with her family to leave a restaurant in Lexington, Va.

Waters responded to Trump's tweet by reading a list of times that Trump has used violent rhetoric during an appearance on MSNBC's "All in with Chris Hayes" on Monday. 

“He calls for more violence than anybody else,” the congresswoman said.
