Disgraced former White House director of communications Anthony Scaramucci has joined CNBC as a contributor.

Scaramucci tweeted Monday, acknowledging his new role:

"It's good to be back home. ⁦@CNBC"

A spokesperson also confirmed Scaramucci's addition to the New York Daily News.

Scaramucci lasted just 11 days as former President Donald Trump's communications director after a profanity-laced tirade in the media about finding White House leakers.

Scaramucci turned on President Trump after his firing, becoming an outspoken critic of his former boss and endorsing Democrats, including President Joe Biden, in the 2020 election.

Scaramucci, who founded investment firm SkyBridge and the SALT financial networking platform, took a crypto fund public in January.

He was on CNBC on Monday pumping Bitcoin and cryptocurrency, and retweeting CNBC segments.
