The man barely installed as President Trump's Communications Director has been moved out of the job, according to a report in the New York Times.
Anthony Scaramucci served in the post for mere days, during which time he dominated news headlines with his colorful language and swagger. During his micro-tenure "The Mooch" also unloaded a crass screed against colleagues in the Trump administration to a reporter for the New Yorker.
The New York Times reports,
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.
No word yet, according to the Times, about next steps for Scaramucci.
It was not clear whether Mr. Scaramucci will remain employed at the White House in another position or will leave altogether.
How do you feel about the continuing turmoil in the Trump White House? Is the President doing what's necessary? Are you worried about its effect on the government? Hit the Take Action button and tell your Reps what you think!

I want the White House and Trump to continue to implode. I do not want any normalization of this administration. Trump and the whole gang of thugs need to go.
As it turns out, all Trump really did was move from one reality TV segment to another.
We will see how long Gen Kelly lasts. Our government, run by the repugs on every level, is a total disaster. Repairing the government at some point in the future will take a long time. The toxic WH and folks like McConnell and Ryan are doing more to hurt Americans than the Nazis did in WWII. Eliminating so many protections-consumer, environmental, medical, financial, ad nauseum- will be their legacy. The Dems better start making that clear to the American public.
No fan of this guy, but this is another example of the chaos and incompetence of this White House and this illegitimate, so-called "president". Enough already! These people are dragging our country, our institutions, our international reputation, and our Democracy through the gutter and the complicit GOP (Guys of Putin) are allowing it to happen! We cannot wait through 3-1/2 more years and untold damage for this dumpster fire to be put out. Get rid of these traitorous grifters - every single one of them, that includes YOU Pence! - and restore some sanity and dignity to our country and the Office of the Presidency!
So far the only people not fired are Trump relatives!!! We can hope....
I also want the trump tyranny to implode. But at least we won't have to put up with this Goodfellas reject further embarrassing the country.
What kind of a ZOO have we allowed into our WHITE HOUSE!!!! This whole pack of LOONS need to be rounded up and sent packing! Starting with FOGHORN LEGHORN!
Good riddance to bad rubbish!!! Bye bye 👋 👋👋👋👋👋 MOOCH!!! NEXT....
"Well that escalated quickly"- Ron Burgundy.
I think he may have set an unbeatable record. -14 days tenure! Suck it Flynn! Your 24 days is like years in Trump time.
These are dangerous times but so far, our democracy is holding on! I hope Congress does the right thing and removes this bafoon and his thugs!
Trumps staff is a cast of characters from Batman. Our country is spinning into disarray and I believe danger in our standing in the world for the abysmal leadership and choices of our volatile president. It will never end until Trump is gone. It is up to congress to protect this country, its values, traditions and sense of dignity from a completely reckless and unstable president.
We really need to concentrate on why it is that the GOP congress remains virtually silent when the White House cabinet is the most unstable cabinet in our history. The cabinets revolving door charade, the twitter tirades, and the Fox News "crazy pandering" seem to all be just a smoke screen covering up the fact that this GOP congress is ineffective, and as such obviously concerned with primarily special interest. Ask yourself, why isn't congress more concerned about this incredibly unstable and dangerous White House?
To bad our president only wants fame. No real agenda, other than being famous. To bad he did not realize you were to have a reason to run for president other than being famous. That doesn't help our country. So far his appointed retired military officers are his only right thing he has done.
This is sad but hilarious at the same time.
I have hope that the General will clean house. Next to go- Kelly Ann and Bannon- are super high on my wishlist followed by the religious nuts and every one else 45 appointed including his family. Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Awwwe! That poor guy on SNL thought he'd have a job for a while.
Fortunately, Just this morning POTUS tweeted "No WH chaos!" so that's a relief.
Trump treats America like it's his personal reality show. He is so over-his-head that it is laughable. One can only hope and pray that Mueller's findings rescue us from this fool and he is removed before he does something so outrageous that it does permanent harm.
I guess the "mooch" couldn't do the fandango 😝
