Anthony Scaramucci's rocky road seems to have its foundation in personal as well as pubic incidents. After his wife filed for divorce in early July after three years of marriage, Scaramucci tweeted, "Leave civilians out of this. I can take the hits, but I would ask that you would put my family in your thoughts and prayers & nothing more."

However, it behooves the American people to understand the backstory and unusual circumstances in a public servant's private life, as it can profoundly affect the wellbeing of the country.
