BREAKING NEWS: Anthony Scaramucci’s Out (Video)
The New York Times reports that President Donald Trump has removed Anthony Scaramucci as White House Communications Director. So glad he’s gone. Such an arrogant and foul-mouthed person was not needed in that position.
I love how President Trump owes no one ANYTHING! He’s just looking to do the right thing for the American people and if you don’t believe that well that’s your problem.
100%FedUp: President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director. It’s also being reported that John Kelly is a key player in the removal. Scaramucci was only on the job for three days but caused a stir when he unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff.

USA Today: Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci took over the White House communications shop Friday, saying President Trump is “doing a phenomenal job and we just need to get it out there a little more aggressively.”
Trump sounded a similar note in his statement announcing the appointment.
“We have accomplished so much and we’re being given credit for so little,” he said.
Scaramucci, who served on Trump’s transition team and is now a senior vice president and chief strategy officer at the Export-Import Bank, surfaced Thursday evening as the leading candidate to be the new communications director.
Scaramucci met with Trump Friday morning, and the White House confirmed the news on Friday afternoon.
He then met with the White House press corps early Friday afternoon in a wide-ranging news conference.
Scaramucci doesn’t have communications experience. He spent years on Wall Street, including at Goldman Sachs and Lehmann Brothers. In 2005, he started his own global investment firm, SkyBridge Capital.
So who will Scaramucci learn from? The president himself.
“The best messenger, the best media person, the most savvy person in the White House is the president of the United States and I’m hoping to learn from him,” he said at Friday’s briefing.
He also said he doesn’t plan to curtail the president’s use of Twitter.
“It’s very important for him to express his identity,” he said. “People love him.”
Scaramucci famously called Trump a hack politician in August 2015, just a couple months after Trump announced his candidacy.
