The Mooch Does Total Face Plant Over Rocker Nils Lofgren; Twitter Wits Roar
Anthony Scaramucci, the ever-so-brief White House communications chief, had told the E Street Band guitarist to “go back to being a nobody.”

It began with Hall of Fame rocker Nils Lofgren offering a profane Twitter takedown of former blink-of-an-eye White House communications chief Anthony Scaramucci. The clapback from Scaramucci, widely known as the Mooch, was a hilarious self-own that “nobody knows who” Lofgren is.

The result? Twitter wags roared. David Crosby (Note to Scaramucci: he’s also a musician) slammed: “Nils is so much more of a human being than you, Mooch.”

This ass wipe is still trying to get a gig in the #WhiteHouse . @MSNBC why? Don’t sully yourself with this nit wit. @Scaramucci PLEASE #AAL https://t.co/O85eaq6xFm

When Brian Koppleman, co-creator of the TV series “Billions,” piped in to hail Lofgren as “one of the greats” — and Lofgren thanked him, Scaramucci called the musician a “nobody.” He added: “I am happy for you that I was able to raise your profile for a few moments after you attacked me.”

More laughing. There’s your problem moochster, I’m not worried about my profile . That’s your thing. I’m worried about this country that I love. Not working for this criminal enterprise you call a presidency. https://t.co/qPYdvRrFOs

Twitter users went bonkers.

Says the guy famous for working in the White House for 15 minutes.

That Mooch thinks he’s more famous than Nils is hysterical.

Bizarrely, Scaramucci suddenly tried to make nice Saturday evening after the viral dustup, perhaps realizing bringing Lofgren fans down on his head was not a bright move. He ended up retweeting Lofgren’s message touting his latest album, congratulating him, promising to buy the music and urging the musician to “be nice.”

Congratulations Nils. I wish you well. You probably don’t believe this but I will go out and purchase the tracks. 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. https://t.co/UvmK10dbRK

1. "There is no need to go off on a stranger"

You mean doing EXACTLY what you did when you were under the delusion that YOU were somebody, and this Nils Lofgreen, whom you had never heard of, was a nobody?

Guess you found out you had that in reverse. AHHHH, I LOVE teachable moments.

Of course, I understand why you were ignorant.

You never were, nor never will be, COOL. Quite frankly, you embarrass yourself.

So Sad.

8. "Fools Die for Want of Wisdom" fitting epitath for the Mooch, or the Orange Lump ...

I haven't heard it in a long time. Time for a reggae/dub/ska Sunday.
