It is "amazing that we are 20 years out from the Monica Lewinsky situation and we are still micro-analyzing the personal lives of the people we’re electing," Scaramucci said during an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo.

"I don’t care what people are doing in their bedroom if they are public officials or nonpublic officials," he added.

Scaramucci said people should be focusing on Trump's accomplishments in office.

"We should move the curve in that direction and focus on the things the president is doing for the country, not his personal life. North Korea, economy is booming, wages are up," he said.

"I predict the president will figure out a way to cut a deal with the Iranians that will be a way better deal than the prior administration. So, if we would relax on some of these stories and let him execute his strategy," Scaramucci said before Cuomo cut him off. 

"You can't. It falls in the credibility issue," Cuomo said. "This is not a morality argument. Nobody cares about the Stormy Daniels affair as that. It's whether he lied about it and whether he broke the law." 

Rudy Giuliani, who is now one of Trump's personal attorneys, on Wednesday revealed that Trump knew about a $130,000 payment made to Stormy Daniels to prevent her from going public about her alleged affair with Trump before the 2016 election.

Trump had previously denied any knowledge of the payment, telling reporters they'd have to talk to the man who arranged it — his longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

Giuliani's revelation has sparked questions about whether the payment violated campaign finance laws, as experts say it was an in-kind contribution to Trump's 2016 campaign. Giuliani denied any wrongdoing, saying campaign money was not used and the matter was strictly personal.

To end the interview, Scaramucci said that the president is doing such a great job that even Cuomo may vote for him in 2020. 

"If I'm not in jail for being a journalist," Cuomo replied.

The interview lasted 25 minutes without a commercial break.  

Scaramucci was White House communications director for 11 days before resigning on July 31, 2017, after giving a profanity-laced interview to former New Yorker magazine correspondent Ryan Lizza.
