Scaramucci Out?? We Hardly Knew Ye


WASHINGTON — President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, three people close to the decision said Monday, relieving him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff.

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.

  1. I actually think this is a good thing. It seems like there were too many cooks in the White House. I think Mr. Kelly will get that place running like a well-oiled machine in no time.

  2. Three unnamed sources close to the President?
    Sounds like another leak or was it approved by DJT?

    When you are dealing with a Marine General, you better respect the Chain of Command.

  3. I would have liked to have him stick around a while longer. It’s not like he pissed anyone off or anything.

  4. Trump does not tolerate fools. Or drunks.

    Scaramucci drunk-dialing (because there really is no other possible explanation) a hardcore Lefty reporter, then spewing his guts in a foolish tirade unworthy of a teenage girl, was immediate suicide.

    I posted a few days ago that Scary would likely be a loud, brief flash in the pan, used and then dismissed.

    He certainly accelerated that timetable.

    His firing is still useful, like Napoleon executing a disappointing General.
    Screw up or otherwise fail Trump, and you are gone.
    Priebus. Scaramucci. Soon to be some other famous names, I’m thinking.
    Sessions needs to get into the fight as AG before he finds himself the new Postmaster of Barrow, Alaska.

  5. General Kelly just busted his first insubordinate lieutenant down to private. The Mooch will be peeling spuds and cleaning toilets for a couple of months before he slinks back to NYC. Good riddance.

  6. Now he will most likely whore himself out to the media and make stuff up about Trump and how chaotic everything is.

  7. Wow, that was fast! And I’m still laughing.

    from the site (Office of Press Secretary):

    “Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director. Mr. Scaramucci felt it best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best.”

    Can we expect that whenever there is a new Chief change, that the next in line will be obligated to clean the slate? Tune in tomorrow for more “Your Days Are Numbered in the West Wing.”

    So glad to see John Kelly take the CoS role.

  8. Story told about Patton, or sometimes MacArthur, take your pick:

    Green rich kid , 22 and just out of Harvard/OCS, is appointed to Patton’s HQ staff. After introducing himself, Harvard Kid chirps “I have a feeling we’re going to get along just fine together here.”
    Patton gives him The Stare. “That’s to be seen. As for any “getting along”, THAT will be done ENTIRELY by YOU. Diiiis-missed.”

  9. appears that there’s a new sheriff in town. He don’t play games with loud brash motor mouths. He doesn’t waste time circling around to back stab ya, he’ll just slit your throat wile he passes by. kudos general Kelly

  10. The Mooch “cleaning the toilet” is a euphemism for brushing his teeth.

    Good riddance to that piece of work. Not as many people covered that he missed the birth of his child last week to attend the Trump Boy Scouts speech. He did send a tweet about it though wishing prayers for the kid.

    Father of the Year material for sure. Right before tweeting his soon to be ex-wife that he was “out of her league”.

    It’s like, douchebag, you married her and got her pregnant. You can’t be much more in the same league.

  11. Bidzee day at 1600 Penn Ave. Pres Trump just awarded the Medal of Honor to PFC James
    McDoughan and what a moving story of bravery & valor to be sure. What took so long????

    Hope Pres Trump sends a vid to Juan McShame with a little note: This is how it’s done Johnnie #FakeMedalsMcCain.

  12. That was fun while it lasted. The press was running around like chickens with their heads cut off every time he made a statement. If Scaremucci stayed a little while longer, he probably would have been allowed to futher torment the congressional RINO cretins.

    Oh well.
    Hopefully, General Kelly will get things in order, so that the leakers etc. will know for sure Pres. Trump means business.

  13. PS. I don’t know why the Bannon comment was taken as a slam. Isn’t that the secret dream of every male?

  14. Brown Eyed Girl — Very apt. He was sure signalling that he was trading on his relationship w/Trump — he misread the signals and that’s grounds enough.

  15. Cato nailed it….as we used to say in the USMC: “fkcu with the bull, you get the horns”

    He didn’t get them four stars being indecisive.

    I guess the only Marine officer I was ever ashamed of was john f murtha

  16. The MSM will waxed poetically about Scaramucci, and get their hate on for Kelly.
    Will Sean come back? Will Kelly let him?

  17. I am grateful for the Mooch’s comedic relief, but his antics were really a distraction from PDJT’s agenda. I still love the guy, but hope he won’t be vindictive about getting canned.

  18. Mooch is reputedly producing a film, so he’s not really ‘out of work and living on the streets’.

    Multimillionaires always have something else up their sleeve, so don’t feel too sorry for him. Best he takes some time to clean up his life, yes?!?
