The Mooch has 2020 vision.
Anthony Scaramucci’s company SkyBridge Capital has purchased the domain names scaramucci2020.us and scaramucciforpresident.us.
Director Minna Urrey, who bought those web properties using her SkyBridge email account, also secured the name fakeloyalty.us when she went on her domain name shopping spree in May.
SkyBridge is the “alternative investment firm” that former Trump communications director Anthony Scaramucci founded in 2005. In January 2017, The Mooch announced that he was resigning his managerial role with the company after it sold a majority stake to a company with close ties to the Chinese government. He is still an owner until that sale is complete.

It’s possible that Urrey is setting the stage for a Scaramucci political campaign.
Reps for SkyBridge directed us to The Mooch’s personal publicist, who said “We’re looking at a lot of opportunities, but public office isn’t one of them.”
We’re also told the company could be “covering its bases” to protect their founder’s brand.
Scaramucci has on several occasions professed his “love” for President Trump, whom he also described as a “hack politician” in 2015.

The brash 53-year-old Long Island native enjoyed a rush of publicity during his 10-day run as Trump’s spokesman, which came to an abrupt end in July when he suggested the President’s chief advisor, Steve Bannon, was having a sexual relationship with himself. Comedian Mario Cantone’s spot-on impersonation of Scaramucci on Comedy Central’s “The President Show” was also well-received by audiences, though short lived, thanks to The Mooch’s sudden departure from the Trump White House.
This wouldn’t be the first time a Scaramucci associate has expressed an interest in domain names touting The Mooch’s political potential. Dailycaller.com reported in August that a rep for Scarmucci has made inquiries into purchasing the domain names Scaramucci2024.com, Scaramucci2028.com and Scaramucci2032.com.
