Anthony Scaramucci Is OUT As White House Comms Director (After Only a Week)
A massive game of staffing musical chairs is underway at the Trump White House. Some ten days ago Anthony Scaramucci was brought in as Communications Director, allegedly against the will of Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer and others. Spicer offered his resignation in protest.
Then, last Friday Priebus resigned as Chief of Staff, being replace by General John Kelly.
Now it appears Sean Spicer is sticking around for a little while and Anthony Scaramucci has been shown the door.

White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has been fired after just a week into the job, according to reports.
Scaramucci was brought in by Trump personally to serve as President Donald Trump’s point man for the media, but lost confidence with staff after having a frank and profaneconversation with New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza who published the details.
“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “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.”
Scaramucci’s exit signals that White House chief of staff Gen. John Kelly is taking further control of Trump’s administration, despite the president’s earlier decision to hire him. Scaramucci served in his position for just 10 days before leaving the White House.
It’s likely the dust hasn’t settled just yet. Reports suggest leaks are still coming out of the White House and Kelly is dead-set on putting a stop to it, even if it means cleaning up the entire house and starting from scratch.
Will be interesting to see who falls next.
