Trump fires the new communications director who made him fire everyone else
Contrary to Donald Trump's Monday morning tweet, the White House has descended into absolute chaos — again.
On Monday morning, Donald Trump tweeted “No WH chaos!”
By Monday afternoon, the White House had once again descended into chaos with the shocking announcement that after a mere 10 days, the new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, is already out.
He also drew widespread and unflattering attention for his extremely vulgar interview with The New Yorker, in which he attacked Priebus and suggested that Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon was attempting to perform oral gratification upon himself.
According to The New York Times, Trump decided to force out the very adviser who had convinced Trump to force out other White House staffers in the past week.
The White House press office released a brief statement explaining, contrary to multiple news reports, “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.”
John Kelly, who had been secretary of Homeland Security until Trump purged Priebus and named Kelly as his new chief of staff, reportedly wanted Scaramucci gone.
Whether it was because of the humiliating obscenity-laced rant revealed just last week, or because of other embarrassing parts of Scaramucci’s past — he had been highly critical of Trump during the campaign, calling him a “hack” with a “big mouth” — is not yet known.
But given that Scaramucci was brought to the White House to help restore order and implement some kind of discipline on Trump’s messaging, his sudden ouster certainly won’t help.
