Less than two weeks after Trump appointed Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci as his new White House communications director, The Mooch is gone.
Anthony Scaramucci is leaving after only 10 days as White House communications director. The decision came at the recommendation of the newly sworn-in chief of staff John Kelly, the White House confirmed.
“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,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.
The Mooch couldn’t be controlled—a problem for Gen. Kelly and his chain-of-command approach. Oh well. I liked The Mooch, but it’s not the end of the world.
