On Monday, kicking off the White House’s American Dreams Week, new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci became deposed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci. Yes, sadly, the Fonz of the West Wing, the Trumpian Mini-Me, the Wolf of Wall Street Extra, is out.
I couldn’t be more upset.
Never fire your breakout character.
Here is the statement from the White House:
Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director. 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.
The saga of Scaramucci, who could not do the fandango, is the finest episode of “Trump” yet. After spending months sucking up to President Trump on national television in order to enter his good graces, Scaramucci then finally gained access to the halls of power.
