Scaramucci Out, Already!

I just laughed out loud when I saw this breaking news headline pop into my Email.

Anthony Scaramucci out as White House communications director

MONDAY, JULY 31, 2017, 11:51 AM PDT
Anthony Scaramucci has been removed from his position as White House communications director, according to a person close to the White House.
Scaramucci’s abrupt removal by President Trump comes 10 days after the New York financial executive joined the White House staff.

Ten days.
Is that some kind of new record?
Wait, even better, he hadn't even officially accepted the job?!

Anthony Scaramucci, who was announced little more than a week ago as President Trump's communications director, was ousted Monday before he had even officially taken the job.

John Kelly, the newly sworn-in White House chief of staff, told Scaramucci around 9:30 Monday morning that he was going to be replaced, according to a person close to White House.

In a statement officially announcing the move, the White House said Scaramucci "felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team."

Scaramucci, a former hedge fund executive who enjoyed the limelight, had come on strong in his brief tenure, highlighted by a profane tirade against colleagues delivered last week to a New Yorker reporter.
The dude was obviously not a good fit for the job from the outset.

After strutting around like a goose and shitting all over everything, he shit in his own nest and then his wife filed for divorce on top of everything else.

I see General Kelly is all over his new job though.
