New White House communications director Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci has a major connection to gambling--for years he has held a big financial conference in Las Vegas!

The annual event is called the SkyBridge Alternatives or SALT Conference and is a get-together of thousands of hedge fund managers and others in the financial field, as well as numerous celebrities.

SkyBridge Capital is the name of the hedge fund that billionaire Scaramucci founded and ran until he took a job in the Trump administration.

At this year's ninth annual SALT Conference, which was held in May at the Bellagio hotel and casino on Las Vegas' famed Strip and attended by about 2,000 people, numerous big-name speakers were featured, according to the event's website (www.saltconference.com).

Among those speaking were former Vice-President Joe Biden, former U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, former Obama White House advisor Valerie Jarrett, former Bush White House advisor Karl Rove, former CIA director John Brennan, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith, comedian Dana Carvey, game show host Steve Harvey, boxer Mike Tyson and of course Scaramucci himself.

Scaramucci's decision to hold his conference in Sin City every year may not necessarily indicate a personal propensity for or even an acceptance of the gambling industry, but it certainly shows he has no aversion to it.

That attitude may come in handy down the line if issues such as the national legalization of sports betting or online gambling come to fruition and President Trump, through his communications office, wants to justify them.
