Unbelievable.  After ten days in the position it appears that Anthony Scaramucci has been fired from his white house job as communications director.

From the Herald:

US President Donald Trump has sacked his communications director Anthony Scaramucci, just 10 days into his role.

The sacking – just days after Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff – plunged the White House into further crisis.

The New York Times said Scaramucci’s removal came at the request of Trump’s new chief of staff John F Kelly.

“Mr Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge,” the Times reported.

It was not clear whether Mr Scaramucci would remain as part of the administration in a different role.

The claim has not been confirmed by Trump twitter yet.  Hold all bets …

    Salon and HuffPo had to use the same headline: WhiteHouse screws the Mooch.

    President Trump and the new Chief of Staff could just not hire a new person for the role, and simply get the Heads of Department to comment on policy issues of any substance:

    – State for foreign issues
    – Joint Chiefs for anything military
    – Carson for HUD
    etc etc

    There is very little in policy terms that can be done for quite some time now. So stop feeding the beast.

    I would just tell all those anxious press corps to go and do some useful investigative reporting elsewhere in the country for a while. MSMBC and Fox would figure it out.
