So much winning, it’s hard to keep track of it all. The Trump administration just set a new record for staff turnover.
***To be fair, I don’t know if this is a record or not, but the “president” plays fast and loose with all the “records” he’s setting, so what the hell.***
“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Monday afternoon.
“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.”
A White House official said Kelly wanted Scaramucci removed from his new role as the communications director because he did not think he was disciplined and had burned his credibility.
Scaramucci, a colorful and controversial figure, was brought on during the latest in a long list of White House shake ups that have rocked the presidency with a sense of chaos.
Scaramucci is the third White House communications director to leave the post that had been vacant since late May, when Mike Dubke left after about three months on the job. Sean Spicer, the former White House press secretary, also assumed some of the communications director role before he resigned when Scaramucci was hired July 21. – CNN
Even by Trump standards, this is a quick exit. Michael Flynn was let go after only 24 days, but The Mooch made it just 10 days. I guess that line about Steve Bannon sucking his own c__k didn’t go over as well as he thought.
