There’s nothing wrong with following a gay porn star on Twitter (and if you’re going to follow any gay porn star, following Blake Mitchell would be a wise choice), but why is White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci following gay porn star Blake Mitchell?

Scaramucci is a married heterosexual man serving a very anti-LGBT president, but as Blake Mitchell revealed earlier today, Scaramucci is in fact following him on Twitter:

waitwhat

Str8UpGayPorn did an independent audit using the “DoesFollow” app to confirm the follow, and it’s true. Scaramucci follows Blake:

Given that Scaramucci follows nearly 168,000 people, his following a gay porn star could of course be an accidental follow. But, Scaramucci doesn’t follow any other gay porn stars (a check of 20 popular porn star names, including several other Helix models, all came back with “nope” on the audit list) or adult entertainment accounts. So, maybe Scaramucci simply enjoys a good Blake Mitchell selfie just as much as everyone else does?

DE-5nsqUIAA4PhpChZmaFVU8AAOgKJOf course, it’s possible that Scaramucci is not aware of Blake Mitchell’s work in adult entertainment, and he’s actually just a fan of people who look like Superman? As noted in a 2011 profile and photo shoot, Scaramucci is a huge Superman stan, and Blake Mitchell has been repeatedly compared to the fictional superhero by his fans on Twitter for years. The Scaramucci profile and photos, along with pictures of Blake as Superman posted recently:

When I was sent to photograph him for Bloomberg Markets magazine, the one thing that jumped out at me was his unabashed love for all things Superman! Every wall and surface in his office has Superman memorabilia…posters, painting, games, sculptures…it was like I got sent to a 12 year-old kid’s room, and not the office of a Master of the Universe. But I quickly understood how this street-smart Harvard Law School graduate who wants “…to be the Peter Lynch of the hedge-fund industry!” held the Good vs. Evil metaphors that are at the center of every Superman cartoon close to heart, so we ran with it…

DFx2qEzUMAAWMbLScreen Shot 2017-07-27 at 4.31.50 PMWhatever his reasoning, following Blake Mitchell might be the only smart, sensible thing Anthony Scaramucci has ever done, so hopefully he’s enjoying all the tweets.

On a related(?) note, Anthony Scaramucci gave a literally insane interview to the The New Yorker today, in which he mocks Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon by suggesting that he’s so desperate for media attention, he sucks his own cock:

Scaramucci also told me that, unlike other senior officials, he had no interest in media attention. “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” he said, speaking of Trump’s chief strategist. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.” (Bannon declined to comment.)

UPDATE 7/28/17:

It’s been less than a day since the Scaramucci/Mitchell news was first published here, and now, via Page Six, comes news that Scaramucci’s wife has filed for divorce:

Deidre Ball, who worked as a vice president in investor relations for SkyBridge Capital, the firm he founded in 2005 and sold to ascend to the White House, has filed for divorce from “The Mooch” after three years of marriage after getting fed up with his ruthless quest to get close to President Trump, whom she despises.

One source told Page Six, “Deidre has left him and has filed for divorce. She liked the nice Wall Street life and their home on Long Island, not the insane world of D.C. She is tired of his naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits’ end. She has left him even though they have two children together.”

AND:

Thanks to a very fun tipster for sending in the below photos of Blake Mitchell and Anthony Scaramucci. Is a new powercouple in the works? #Scaramitchell?

UPDATE 7/31/17:

In what has become a daily recurring theme, another person has been fired (or “resigned,” depending on your source) from the Trump White House, and that person is Anthony Scaramucci. Scaramucci joined the disastrous Trump administration less than 11 days ago as White House Communications Director, but Trump’s new Chief Of Staff (who replaced Reince Priebus, who himself was fired three days ago) reportedly wanted him out. However you feel about Scaramucci, Blake Mitchell made a good point in his response to the news moments ago:

  • James Withers

    The Mooch has good taste. Looking forward to the Fox News freak out.

    • McM.

      Fox News is minimizing an investigation into collusion with a foreign power of several key figures.

      The network won’t pay attention to this, at all.

  • James Johnson III

    How dare you poison our collective mind with the image of that racist deformed troll, Steve Bannon, attempting to suck the disintegrating tic-tac that passes for his own dick

  • Schnitzel

    It seems clear that he is as clueless as everyone else in this dictatorship thus the incidental/accidental following of a gay porn star.

    • edginghours

      Yep, THE MOOCH is following 167,000 people on Twitter, likely as an attempt to boost his follower numbers.

  • TheSagaOf

    Haha. Nice.

  • Zealot
  • the Mooch at least doesn’t break mirrors with his own reflection

    • Ulf Raynor

      I’d watch a porn vid with Anthony topping Aaron Schock and they could make it “pop” by having Blake urinate on both of them while they do it.
      Sounds like something Duck Face would produce!

  • Maximus

    Scaramucci is a walking parody. I’m not convinced that he isn’t just a character created and portrayed by a VERY dedicated method actor.

    Blake Mitchell is Superman? So then I take it that he’s a brave hero who saves lives. What?! He’s not a brave hero who saves lives?! He’s just a pretty-faced thot?! Hmmm……

    • McM.

      Any slim to muscular white guy with dark-ish hair and blue eyes who’s within ten feet of black horn rimmed glasses will be compared to Clark Kent.

      • Maximus

        Which is why it’s so painfully basic.

      • Scrapple

        Just be careful if the bespectacled man in question claims to work for Primatech Paper.

        • McM.

          In which case you take him out. Like right then and there.

          A lot of long and drawn-out complicated shit can be avoided by dealing with a Primatech Paper employee in an swift and efficient manner.

    • Scrapple

      When I see Blake all I get is wild thots. Wild, wild, wild. Wild, wild, wild thots.

      • Maximus
        • Scrapple

          That’s to be expected since you’re originally from the island of Lesbos and you have a timeshare on Themyscira.

          • Maximus

            I’m honored to be compared to a lesbian. I like to think that I would be a proud, noble, radical feminist dyke.

          • Scrapple

            I can totally see you working that feminine mystique with your girlfriend/partner in crime who happens to be a blind precog.

          • Maximus

            Now that’s a TV show that needs to get made.

          • Scrapple

            The closest we got was an animated series, but the overt lesbianism was neglected, as this was pre Ruby/Sapphire. It was a different world back then.

          • Maximus

            Ruby/Sapphire? Are you referencing the Pokémon cartoon series? That was my Saturday morning jam, and I definitely don’t remember any blind pre-cogs who had a very special female friend.

          • Scrapple

            What? A fabulous queer activist such as yourself isn’t familiar with Steven Universe? Girl, you need to get on that. Becky with the Sugar hair stays slaying with that show.

            That “feminine Mystique” comment was a reference to the Marvel character, Mystique. In the comics she was in a lesbian relationship with a mutant named Destiny, who was a blind precog. I think they raised Rogue together, and there are long-standing rumors that Mystique may have conceived a child with Destiny. The Destiny storyline never made it to the 90’s X-Men cartoon. I don’t think she has ever been depicted in the other animated versions.

          • Maximus

            I’ve heard of Steven Universe, but I was under the impression that it wouldn’t be particularly enjoyable for adult audiences. I’ll check it out once I’ve gotten caught up on the MCU. In the past couple of weeks, I’ve watched Iron Fist, Doctor Strange, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4, plus I rewatched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1. Next up is Agent Carter Season 2. Oh, and I also still haven’t started watching the new season of Game of Thrones.

            Is the theory that Mystique shapeshifted into a man and impregnated Destiny that way?

          • Scrapple

            You’ll love SU. For the approach to queer characters and for the music. Estelle plays Garnet and she has this song called “Strong Than You” which is practically an anthem. Nicki guest-starred a while back, and Aimee Mann and Patti Lupone have voiced characters too. Jinkx will be voicing a character next season.

            I’m super beyond on my MCU. I haven’t even touched any of the Netflix shows. One day. Agent Carter’s season two storyline was supposed to have a connection to Doctor Strange, but it was left out of the movie.

            GoT I can’t get into at all until I finish the last book. I’m really going to enjoy watching that series.

            Originally Chris Claremont was going that route with Mystique to have her and Destiny be Nightcrawler’s parents. But at the time this comic book council had this rule about depicting gay and bisexual characters, so that storyline had to be altered to just Mystique being his mother.

          • Maximus

            It sounds fierce. I love me some queerness and queenery.

            You haven’t seen Jessica Jones???!!! It was sensational!!! The writing is genius. The symbolism, subtext, and underlying themes of the narrative are so real and so poignant that you forget that you’re watching a show about comic book characters. Kristen Ritter was born to play Jessica Jones. David Tennant’s portrayal of Kilgrave is one of the best villain performances I’ve ever seen. Honestly, that series is the closest that any show has ever come to Buffy, which is the single greatest compliment that I could ever give. (And just like with Buffy, Jessica Jones was snubbed by the Emmys.)

            I didn’t read the books. The Harry Potter movies taught me that one must either read the source material or watch the film adaptation, but never both. Since the GoT show was so widly recommended, I opted for that medium and have stayed away from the books.

          • Scrapple

            I’ve been itching to check out JJ since it started. But my DVR is at capacity so I’m trying to keep the detours to a minimum. But that’s the first series I want to watch. Probably start with DD first though, for the sake of continuity. Krysten has always been that bitch. I fucks with her.

            I’m laughing at your Potter advice because I read those books first too.

          • Maximus

            Daredevil was really good too. Charlie Cox got so ripped for that role. I would throw out my flatware and simply eat all of my meals off of his abs. I only knew Krysten from Breaking Bad, so I hadn’t been exposed to her comedic ability until I saw her as Jessica. Her sarcasm and dry wit are on motherfucking point.

            The Potter movies had gorgeous visuals and musical scores, but they just couldn’t live up to the source material. I still haven’t gotten over the fact that they completely omitted Peeves from the films.

          • Scrapple

            Charlie did get that body right and tight. I’d let him teach me braille.

            Krysten was great on “Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apartment 23.” And it had The Beek in various states of undress.

            I somewhat can’t fault the movies for leaving stuff out because Rowling packed soooo much stuff into those books. The films did get a bit sloppier near the end, in terms of pacing and abandoned storylines. They left out pretty much all the ghosts. The Wailing Woman was a big part of the horcrux plot.

          • Maximus

            You’re right that they couldn’t possibly fit all of that material into feature length films, but that’s exactly why they shouldn’t have been made. Sadly, there was profit to be made, so it happened.

          • Mike Julius

            I liked your post for the gif, but I wish I could balance it out by DOWNVOTING you twice. They shouldn’t have made the Harry Potter films?!

        Shane was hot in his younger days. I had a slight crush. I kinda wish he did swing my way

  • Scrapple

    Can’t a foul-mouthed, Roman Catholic man-child with an apparent obsession with a strapping, square-jawed comic book character (who is an illegal alien, has daddy issues and a secret identity) follow a hefty-cocked bisexual porn model who loves guns and cars, and is a recognizable face of a studio specializing in sexualizing young twinks, twunks and punks? This is a non-story.

    for christ sake Scaramucci has already got his own action figure and its life size too https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/216429d9e25e563141907ae6246f1b3c3bd2d962d318e948f295ecf57c90ddc8.gif

  • Pinko of the Grange

    Although this is funny strange, wouldn’t the simplest explanation be, moochie knows someone named Blake Mitchell and whoever works his Twitter account just added every “Blake Mitchel” they could find, and never edited the list?

    Or the PC question:

    “Why are you all questioning his sexuality just because he follows a hot, young, big dicked, usually neked, guy?” I mean besides experience.

      No, she picked the right time – he took this job with Trump so he could get the regulatory approval to sell his company to a Chinese firm. Selling price? $185 million. She’s going to get a big chunk of it since they have small children and most likely no prenup.

      • Pinko of the Grange

        I agree she picked the right time sorry it wasn’t clear.

        But really was it necessary to tell me this dude is slimier then I even thought he was? I need to take a shower now.

  • OneOfTheManyChris

    He follows 168,000 people. He never looks at his twitter feed, nor does he have the slightest idea of who his bots are following for him.

    He probably has a “real” twitter under a neutral name. THAT’S where he follows all the Helix boys with big cocks.

  • Trepakprince

    I called the divorce months ago. I met The Mooch and his wife at an RNC fundraiser and the way he belittled his wife was astounding. It’s as if he looked up how to be a stereotypical republican and is faking it to make it. He’s such a social climber and all I can say is congratulations, douchebags like him deserve hookers and cocaine to comfort them. I hope she takes him to the cleaners.
