That went swimmingly.
Just – what? – a little over a week into the job, Anthony Scaramucci is well, out of one:
- TRUMP REMOVES SCARAMUCCI FROM COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR JOB: NYT
- WHITE HOUSE CONFIRMS SCARAMUCCI OUT AS COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR
This apparently came at the behest of John Kelly, which is ironic, because Kelly replaced Priebus, the “fucking paranoid schizophrenic.”
So “The Mooch” got rid of one Chief of Staff only to be promptly ousted by his successor. There was no immediate word on whether “Mooch” thinks Kelly is a “cocksucker.”
Here’s the NY Times with the sparse (so far) details:
Mr. Scaramucci’s abrupt removal came just 10 days after the wealthy New York financier was brought on to the West Wing staff, a move that convulsed an already chaotic White House and led to the departures of Sean Spicer, the former press secretary, and Reince Priebus, the president’s first chief of staff.
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, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge.
It was not clear whether Mr. Scaramucci will remain employed at the White House in another position or will leave altogether.
Ultimately then, it seems like everyone decided that a communications director needs to understand why it isn’t a good idea to call The New Yorker and have a complete, profanity-laced meltdown.
Meanwhile, the spread between Trump’s unfavorable and favorable ratings has only been higher once this year:
In short: this administration is completely off the rails.
So much for “mini-me”…
