Newly appointed White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci has just been fired.
His is the briefest stint in the history of President Trump’s six-month administration: 10 days.
The former Wall Street financier’s appointment was what triggered the resignation of former White House press secretary, Sean Spicer. At the time of his appointment, one would have sworn he would last the entire duration of President Trump’s administration as he touted himself as a loyalist who had mastered the art of being Trump.
Watch how their mannerisms match:
But it was Scaramucci’s exaggerated confidence that endeared the media to him the most. In his first outing as press secretary, the Mooch took questions from the press and answered them in a polished manner, expressed his love for the president and blew the world a kiss.
He seemed to be having a great time at his new job until Monday when reports of his removal flooded sites. The New York Times reports that “the decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president, not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request,”. This comes hours after Kelly was sworn in as Chief of Staff. Errrr…now that’s how to be a General.
Frankly, we’re amused by Scaramucci’s removal for one thing. His wings have been clipped.
Scaramucci did the most in his interview with the New Yorker where he referred to former chief of staff, Reince Preibus as a “a f***ing paranoid schizophrenic”. And that’s the least shocking of the expletives he let out in that interview. He also said, “I’m not Steve Bannon. I’m not trying to suck my own c**k,”.
Oh well, we guess this is John Kelly’s way of cleaning house upon his arrival as chief staffer. This move sums up as “Fuck Mooch, I’m in charge”.
