The new White House employee, who has been in his new job for less than a week, spent the 11-minute interview repeatedly touching [Emily] Maitlis’s hand, gesticulating close to her face and apparently glancing at her chest.

Before you watch the entire segment below, you are strongly advised to go read Claire Cohen’s brilliant rundown and analysis of Anthony Scaramucci’s slick (well, not really) moves in The Telegraph, complete with animated gifs – but be forewarned: make sure your mouth is free of any beverages, as you will short out whatever device you are using due to Ms. Cohen’s rundown of Maitlis’s interview with “The Borat Mooch” being just about the funniest thing we’ve read this summer.
