The Mooch 😘 emoji

A White House official, who shall remain nameless, has minted an emoji shorthand to refer to Anthony Scaramucci in the official's text message conversations with outside advisers. They now refer to him as: 😘 . (It commemorates the kiss he blew to the White House press corps after his debut briefing.)

Scaramucci has plenty of company. Bannon allies have long referred to Gary Cohn as "Globalist Gary" or in text chains they use the emoji shorthand: 🌎. Some use a reindeer shorthand — 🦌— for Reince Priebus, whom they call "the prancer." (I've never quite understood that one.)
