Email prankster posing as Reince Priebus 'duped the Mooch'

An email prankster claims to have duped Anthony Scaramucci into an extraordinary exchange in which they posed as former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. 

The anonymous prankster, who calls themselves Sinon Reborn, shared screenshots of the conversation with CNN and on Twitter. 

The emails took place on Saturday, a day after Priebus's resignation which came after Scaramucci brought their bitter feud in to the public eye with a profane-laced interview and two days before Scaramucci was fired. 

Posing as Priebus, the prankster wrote: 'I had promised myself I would leave my hands mud free, but after reading your tweet today which stated how "soon we will learn who in the media has class, and who hasn't, has pushed me to this.

Priebus and The Mooch, as he is known, had a frosty relationship to say the least. When Scaramucci took the role of communications director, he kicked their feud in to the limelight with a profanity-laced interview in which he called the then Chief of Staff a 'f***ing paranoid schizophrenic' and 'c**c blocker'. Neither now works for the president

'That tweet was breathtakingly hypocritical, even for you. At no stage have you acted in a way that's even remotely classy yet you believe that's the standard by which everyone should behave towards you?' 

The prankster went on: 'General Kelly will do a fine job. I'll even admit he will do a better job than me. But the way in which that transition has come about has been diabolical. And hurtful. I don't expect a reply.' 

Scaramucci, seemingly responding from his White House email account, responded. 

'You know what you did. We all do. Even today. But rest assured we were prepared. A Man would apologize.' 

The prankster carried on, responding: 'I can't believe you are questioning my ethics! The so called 'Mooch', who can't even manage his first week in the White House without leaving upset in his wake. I have nothing to apologize for.' 

To this, Scaramucci is said to have replied: 'Read Shakespeare. Particularly Othello. You are right there.
