The outlet, which Scaramucci started once he was fired by the Trump administration less than two weeks after he was hired, said the poll was put up by a colleague while the founder was traveling in London. The colleague, Lance Laifer, said the poll was meant to demonstrate public ignorance.

Up to 6 million Jews were killed as the result of the Nazi regime, along with millions of prisoners of war, people with disabilities, Soviet civilians, Roma and others, according to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
