While downplaying any tension in the West Wing, newly named White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci wanted to make it clear there's a lot of "love" to go around.

By our count, Scaramucci said the word "love" 20 times during the press briefing Friday.

He used it to describe how he felt about his new colleagues ("I love the team."), to how he feels about President Donald Trump ("I love the president and I'm very, very loyal to the president and I love the mission that the president has."), to how he believes the American people feel about Trump ("I think they really, really love the president.")

As he exited the podium, Scaramucci even appeared to blow reporters a kiss.
