‘Presidential Apprentice:’ Anthony Scaramucci Kicked Off Trump Island (TWEETS)

172

Anthony Scaramucci, the foulmouthed New York celebrity investor who was named Donald Trump’s press secretary just ten days ago, is already being pushed out.

The New York Times reports that three White House officials “close to the decision” have confirmed the story. “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,” they say. “Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge.”

“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director. Mr. Scaramucci felt it was 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,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

During his brief tenure, Scaramucci had managed to stoke controversy by deleting old tweets, pushing chief of staff Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer out of the administration, delivering a foul-mouthed rant about Steve Bannon to Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker, and more. Scaramucci’s wife reportedly filed for divorce out of disgust at his simpering Trump boosterism.

Having served just six days in the job, Scaramucci now becomes the shortest-serving press secretary in American history. Ironically, this morning the president tweeted that reports of “chaos” in the White House were fake news.

Predictably, Twitter has shown “the Mooch” no mercy since the story broke. As we all watch the Trump administration burn and collapse into the ground like the House of Usher, what else can we do but laugh?

Of course, not everyone was taking the news so well. At least one alt-right sh*tlord was discernibly downbeat about the news.
