Scaramucci Ousted on John Kelly's First Day as Chief of Staff

"His tenure as White House communications director was as chaotic as it was brief."

"Mooch, we hardly knew ye. 
"President Donald Trump is removing Anthony Scaramucci from his role as White House communications director, just 10 days after Scaramucci took the job.
"The New York Times, which broke the story, reported that the move comes at the request of new chief of staff John Kelly after Scaramucci boasted about reporting directly to the president.
“Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge,” the Times reported.
“ 'Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director,” the White House said in a statement Monday afternoon. “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.”
"Axios’s Jonathan Swan reported that Kelly broke the news to Scaramucci almost immediately after being sworn in.
"Scaramucci’s White House tenure was short but tempestuous, overshadowed by his bizarre decision to call a New Yorker reporter to harangue his White House colleagues. His hiring prompted the resignations of press secretary Sean Spicer and chief of staff Reince Priebus—the latter move, ironically, leading to his own dismissal as Trump hired Kelly to replace Priebus.
"Kelly’s swift action against the erratic Scaramucci shows he is wasting no time doing the job Trump brought him in for: ending the infighting and chaos that has gripped the White House over the last sixth months. Former Trump adviser Corey Lewandowski told NBC’s Chuck Todd on Sunday that “the president made a decision to move in a new direction to bring a seriousness to his chief of staff and a pivot, so that he can have his agenda at the forefront of what he wants to get done.' ”
