WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) - Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci says the interview he had with The New Yorker was "mischaracterized."

During an appearance on ABC's "This Week" he said that he has come to terms with his departure from the White House.

"I thought that was an off the record conversation with some body it turns out that it wasn't," Scaramucci remarked. "I was probably running too hard and acting too much like a corporate CEO."

He also said he wasn't aware his conversation was on the record with the reporter.

"I accept it. What I did was wrong," said Scaramucci. He also added that he spoke with the president this past week though he did not get into the details of their discussion.

Scaramucci was released from his position after White House Chief of Staff John Kelly was appointed to his position. Scaramucci did issue an apology for his remarks.
