Scaramucci's friend accuses Priebus of having an affair, then deletes tweet

A friend of newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci attacked freshly fired chief of staff Reince Priebus over the weekend, but quickly apologized.

Following Priebus' firing, Arthur Schwartz implied he was having an affair in tweets.

"Hey @Reince45. Oops; @Reince - you're unemployed now. Keep pushing this crap & I'll start dropping oppo on you. Mistress much?," Schwartz wrote before deleting the post.

Schwartz backtracked his claims talking with the Daily News, saying it was just a rumor.

He then tweeted, "I deleted my tweets re @Reince & apologized to him. Pretty sure he's not accepting my apology. Can't blame him. I'm ashamed of what I said."

Scaramucci was hired as President Trump's new communications director just a week before Priebus got canned. The two have reportedly been feuding over the last year. Scaramucci has yet to comment on the tweets.
