As they say, when it rains it pours, and Anthony Scaramucci seems to be stuck outside in the middle of a monsoon without an umbrella.
The former White House communications director blew up the internet with an explosive (and expletive-filled) New Yorker interview, had his wife file for divorce, and lost his job in President Donald Trump’s administration all within 10 short days. What’s more, he’s also been incorrectly listed as dead by his alma mater.
As fate would have it, the newest addition of the Harvard Law School alumni directory arrived this week, during Scaramucci’s Shakespearean rise and fall, and he had an asterisk printed next to his name. This indicated he was reported dead since the directory was last published in 2011.
Ouch. Way to salt the wound, Harvard.
Twitter, however, seemed to think Harvard miiiight not have been too far off with their proclamation:
In a very “You’re dead to me” move by Harvard alumni

It’s unclear if “the Mooch” was a victim of a perfectly-timed prank, or if he was just on the receiving end of a typo. Harvard Law emailed the following statement to the Washington Post regarding the matter:
“Regrettably, there is an error in the Harvard Law alumni directory in the listing for Anthony Scaramucci. We offer our sincere apologies to Mr. Scaramucci. The error will be corrected in subsequent editions.”
Scaramucci didn’t respond to the Washington Post’s request for comment, but to be fair, he seemed to be pretty tied up today. Unfortunately for Scaramucci, Harvard Law’s alumni directory is published every five years, so he’ll remain dead on paper through the rest of Trump’s first term.
All that said, at this point we can only pity “the Mooch.”
