Scaramucci, Here today, Gone Tomorrow

For the most part I've been in agreement with Trump's decisions, and the people he has surrounded himself with.  Bringing Anthony Scaramucci on board as communications director, however, left me scratching my head.  The guy has a history of being critical of conservative positions, and is a loose cannon in many ways, especially when it comes to his mouth.

The collateral damage of bringing Sacarmucci onto the team was the loss of Sean Spicer and Reince Priebus.  Scaramucci's mouth with profane attacks bled all over the White House drapes and carpets.  And now, President Trump has seen enough, and has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director.  The dismissal comes mere days after the latest verbal tirade by Scaramucci against other senior members of the president’s senior staff.

Ten days is all it took.  It should have taken less time.

tAccording to the New York Times, the decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president, not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge.
