Anthony Scaramucci fired as Trump's media chief

01 Août 2017

Last week, his travails included the defeat of health care reform - his (and his party's) top legislative priority - along with a Congressional move to limit Trump's authority to deal with Russian Federation, a rebuke by the Pentagon over a presidential directive to ban transgender people from military service, chaos in the White House staff and an extraordinary introduction by his new communications director.

Kelly will have "full authority" to bring "new structure, discipline and strength to the White House", said Sanders, adding that "all staff will report to him". Recall that what started much of this brouhaha was Ryan Lizza's report that Scaramucci had dined in the White House with the president, First Lady, Sean Hannity, and the former Fox News executive Bill Shine.

But, as news outlets have reported, Trump doesn't like getting his hands dirty.

You can kiss The Mooch goodbye, but the real problem remains at the White House. "The Marines have landed at the White House".

This New York buffoon was a boil on the backside of an already scarred White House.

Before Sanders' comments White House officials had declined to say if they had a response to multiple police departments criticizing Trump's law-and-order speech in NY.

It will be a tough job, but Kelly needs to tamp down Trump at least a little and prevent self-inflicted disasters from occurring on a regular basis.

In a tense exchange with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union", Scaramucci also seemed to leak that his own anonymous source was, in fact, the President. He resurfaced a February 2016 tweet from then-presidential candidate Trump hounding rival Ted Cruz for firing his communications director "like a dog".

But "the Mooch" hadn't even technically started his job, Noah said, noting that Scaramucci's official start date was slated to be August 15. Scaramucci was a fierce Trump loyalist, and while he did himself some damage last week, this was a case of the general taking charge and wanting to build his own team.

Scaramucci began nearly immediately, however, appearing at his first - and only- White House press briefing on Friday, June 21. There are an very bad lot of jobs to fill in this White House, and Kelly can and should create even more openings.

The president still values Scaramucci, said people close to Trump and his family, and is hoping to find another, less high profile position for him in the White House - although it is uncertain if Scaramucci would be willing to accept a demotion.

Scaramucci was spotted this morning at Trump International hotel in Washington, D.C, a few blocks down from the White House.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, speaking on NBC's "Today Show", said he was encouraged by Kelly's new role, but stressed that he was looking for "discipline" from Trump in order to move forward with issues like health care and tax reform.

After swearing in Kelly earlier on Monday, Trump touted on Twitter that there was "no chaos" in his administration.

This time it was Anthony Scaramucci, the flamboyant NY financier who had been appointed communications director just a little more than 10 days ago.

Others, like former national security adviser Michael Flynn and recently departed chief of staff Reince Priebus, had to resign from their top White House jobs.

One retired police official who was particularly critical of the president is himself a strong supporter of Trump and his agenda. "The economy is doing incredibly well, and many other things", he said. Reporters scrambled to the press offices to seek comment, aides walked briskly between rooms avoiding questions, and the President went about his schedule.

The chief of staff took his oath of office early Monday in an Oval Office ceremony thronged by senior staff members, including Scaramucci. "We wish him all the best".
