It’s the summer silly season so you knew the “Mooch vs. Donald” show would be back in reruns sooner or later.

Onetime pals Anthony Scaramucci and President Trump fired barbs at one another on Twitter over the raging coronavirus pandemic and the coming reckoning at the ballot box.

Scaramucci, known as “The Mooch” was fired as the White House communications director after a tumultuous 11-day stint in 2017, mocked Trump for bungling the response to the pandemic and costing America 160,000 lives and 40 million jobs.

“We are tired of all the losing,” The Mooch wrote. “Thankfully it will be over on 11/3. America will heal and rebuild.”

Trump returned the insult volley by claiming the former White House staffer was “making a fool of himself” in a Fox News interview a few minutes earlier.

“Anthony is a loser who begged to come back,” the president of the United States wrote on Twitter. “I said ‘No Thanks.‘”

The childish name-calling is just the latest episode in the two men’s ongoing playground spat that has been going on since Scaramucci joined a parade of onetime cronies who turned on Trump.

Scaramucci has rebranded himself as a Trump critic in recent months and returned to Fox News with an appearance on host Steve Hilton’s show Sunday night.

The Mooch railed against Trump for 10 minutes, accusing him of ignoring science when faced with the greatest crisis in a generation. That apparently got under the president’s skin, prompting his unseemly response.

Trump has claimed that he is working round the clock to break the logjam with Congress over the stalled coronavirus stimulus negotiations.

He enacted four executive orders on Saturday, but Democrats rejected them as a lame and called for new talks for a real package to boost the economy.
