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

Anthony Scaramucci allegedly told the prankster posing as Reince Priebus 'I know what you did' and compared the former chief of staff's White House departure to Shakespeare's tragedy Othello.  

While the emails in themselves were bizarre enough, it was Scaramucci's reference to Shakespeare that set the internet alight as people tried to tease out the metaphor.

'I KNOW WHAT YOU DID' THE MOOCH'S EXCHANGE WITH FAKE REINCE 

Prankster to Scaramucci:

'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.

'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?

'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 to prankster: 

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

Prankster to Scaramucci

'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.' 

Scaramucci to Prankster:

'Read Shakespeare. Particularly Othello. You are right there. 

'My family is fine by the way and will thrive. I know what you did. No more replies from me.'

 

The tragedy deals with themes of power, ambition, infidelity and jealousy as it follows lowly army officer Iago's attempts to manipulate his way to the top, leading to death for his superiors and ruination for himself.

According to the screenshots, the emails took place on Saturday, a day after Priebus's resignation and two days before Scaramucci was fired just over a week after joining the White House as its new communications director.

Posing as Priebus, the prankster trashed Scaramucci as 'hypocritical' and accused him of having no class.

'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,' he wrote. 

'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?' 

Speaking of Priebus's successor, General John Kelly, he 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, wrote: '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. 

'My family is fine by the way and will thrive. I know what you did. No more replies from me.' 

The warning prompted confusion among the public once the exchange was published. 

Many questioned which character Scaramucci was comparing Priebus to - the villainous Iago whose scheming breaks up a marriage and leads to the death of three innocent people - or Othello, a jealous outsider who kills himself then his own wife after falling for Iago's lies. 

The fact Scaramucci - whose wife filed for divorce earlier this month while eight months pregnant - added that his family is 'fine' suggests he was scrutinizing Priebus's personal life. 

Over the weekend, one of the Mooch's friends was shouted down after accusing Priebus of having an affair on Twitter. 

Priebus and his wife Sally have been married since 1999.

It was not the only time the Mooch seemed to fall for the prankster's con.  

On July 13, the prankster posed as Donald Trump Jr. and contacted Eric Trump about hunting rifles. Eric became suspicious after exchanging a few messages and said he had contacted police

Posing as Russian ambassador Jon Huntsman Jr. on Friday, the jokster asked Scaramucci in reference to Priebus and Senior White House Strategist Steve Bannon: 'Who's head should roll first?'

Scaramucci allegedly responded: 'Both of them'.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the White House was investigating the emails on Monday.  

'We take all cyber related issues very seriously and are looking into these incidents further,' she said. 

There were other apparent victims, but none have yet confirmed the email threads posted online by Sinon Reborn as genuine. 

In another exchange, posing as Eric , the prankster told Jon Huntsman, the Russian ambassador: 'Maybe we could have Dad sat on a horse, top off, giving the full Putin!

'He's in better shape than his suit suggests.' 

In another, the prankster posed as Donald Jr. and contacted his brother, Eric, asking to go hunting. 

On July 13, they sent Eric an email under the subject line 'just ordered one
