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.The dude was obviously not a good fit for the job from the outset.
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.
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.
