Anthony Scaramucci no longer is the White House communications director.
Following a verbal indictment on President Trump and his senior staff, Scaramucci has been removed from his role by the POTUS. The announcement was made by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a statement.
“Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team,” she said. “We wish him all the best.”
Former chief of staff Reince Priebus also left recently, paving the way for Kelly, who entered the White House with a stern, early-morning meeting that instilled a new sense of discipline that the current administration lacked. Ousting Scaramucci was one of his orders of business.
Scaramucci was quite outspoken as the White House communications director, calling Priebus “paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac.” He also spoke out against Steve Bannon, saying Bannon was only serving as chief strategist for selfish purposes, and not for what’s best for the nation.
Ultimately, Trump and Kelly decided it would be wise to remove Scaramucci from his role as he could further embarrass the current administration.
