Trump fires new communications director Scaramucci


Anthony Scaramucci was removed as White House communications director after 10 days on the job

WASHINGTON – President Trump’s new communications director only lasted 10 days on the job, apparently.

Anthony Scaramucci has been removed from the job according to multiple media outlets including the New York Times and Washington Post.

This follows the firing of White House chief of staff Reince Priebus on Friday. And that followed an obscenity laced tirade against Preibus by Scaramucci in the New Yorker last week.

Monday was the first day on the job for new White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly.

The Times reports that Scaramucci’s removal was the president’s decision, not Kelly’s, but that the new chief of staff made clear to staff members that he was in charge, at a Monday morning meeting.

No word yet on whether Scaramucci will stay at the White House in another position.

This is a developing story.
