Anthony Scaramucci has resigned from his role as White House communications director.
Scaramucci's tenure as comms director, a mere ten days, is the shortest in presidential history.
Scaramucci's resignation reportedly came at the behest of Gen. John Kelly, the new White House chief of staff.
A statement from the White House press secretary said Monday. ...
“Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best.”
Scaramucci was then physically escorted from White House grounds.
The resignation comes after Scaramucci's profanity-laced tirade against other members of Donald Trump’s White House staff that was published in The New Yorker last week in which he referred to Reince Priebus as “a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac" and said he was unlike Steve Bannon, in that he was not "trying to suck my own cock.”
Many pundits have posited that they believed that Scaramucci may have been a figurative "suicide bomber" sent into the White House to take out the former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, who was fired (or resigned) on Friday afternoon, and then disappear after the job was done.
Bannon appears safe for the time being.
Scaramucci, who received divorce papers from his wife last week after he attended a Trump speech rather than attend his son's birth, will be returning to the private sector in order to spend more time learning how to suck his own cock.
Scaramucci is the first scalp the brand new Chief of Staff John Kelly has obtained.
