President Trump removed Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director ten days after acquiring the job.
Many have speculated, and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has hinted at it as well, that the cause of Scaramucci’s removal was due to his crude verbal tirade with a reporter from The New Yorker. According to reports, newly instatded Chief od Staff Gen. John Kelly recommended Trump to remove Scaramucci.
Not only was Scaramucci’s stint short lived, but the eccentric businessman turned political figure has also faced other complications since taking the job. Reports have unveiled that his wife filed for divorce, right before the birth of their child. It was also reported Scaramucci missed the birth of his child because he was busy working with Trump.
In addition of insult to injury, Scaramucci’s alma mater, Harvard Law School, incorrectly listed him as “dead” on their alumni page.
Scaramucci simply cannot catch a break, although many are speculating Scaramucci’s arrival to the White House was purposely short lived so that he could accomplish a quick, swift job: get Reince Priebus to resign.
Whether Scaramucci simply fulfilled a short lived purpose, or indeed Trump was not tolerant of Scaramucci’s explicit tone, the world of the media, politics and the public had a near universal reaction to the news: what the heck is going on?
Below are a few responses from celebrities, politicians, and social media users regarding the news that Scaramucci will be departing from the D.C. world:
He got hired, divorced, had a baby, and fired in 10 days. Like a fruit fly. #Scaramucci

Scaramucci was hired, had a baby, divorced, embarrassed, fired.
It’s like if the entire plot of the movie Blow took place in 1 week.

Anthony Scaramucci did serve longer than some of Bill Clinton’s Attorney Generals (Zoe Baird, Kimba Wood).

Something is incredibly wrong when the White House has a faster turnover rate than an average McDonald’s. #Scaramucci

I did the math, and #Scaramucci lasted for exactly 2,400 plays of Bohemian Rhapsody.
