The Mooch is out! Anthony Scaramucci, the often unbridled White House communications director, has been escorted from the building 10 days into his job. We’ve all had bad weeks from time to time, but Scaramucci’s short tenure has been an epic disaster. Within that period The Mooch gave one of the most outrageous interviews by any politician, claiming that Trump advisor Steve Bannon “sucks his own cock,” his wife filed for divorce while nine months pregnant, he missed his son’s birth because he opted to attend the president’s disastrous speech before a gathering of boy scouts, and those are just the unpleasant events we know about.
and former Silence of the Lambs heroine Catherine Martin Sarah Huckabee Sanders gave a brief statement this morning to inform the press of Scaramucci’s resignation.
“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director,” she announced. “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.”
Hmm, they seem to be cleaning the slate every couple of weeks. You think it would be spotless by now.
Ironically, this news comes on the same day that 45 tried to denounce press reports of all the turmoil in the white house, claiming on Twitter : “No WH chaos!”
Other Twitter uses were quick to ridicule the president’s latest p.r. disaster.
Scaramucci resigned as White House communications director to spend more time fellating himself.

I've had bouts of food poisoning that lasted longer than The Mooch.

Watch a clip from The Daily Show which shows The Mooch emulating his idol. Apparently, imitation wasn’t enough to ensure job security.
