How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days: Twitter bids farewell to Anthony Scaramucci
Anthony Scaramucci was removed from his position as White House communications director on Monday, after just 10 days on the job.
The New York financier had quickly built a reputation as a controversial figure. He publicly deleted tweets that disagreed with Trump's agenda. He punished staff for leaking information. And issued a few expletives against former chief of staff Reince Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon in a New Yorker magazine interview.
An eventful 10 days but it wasn't to last.
On Monday he was sent packing. Or, according to a White Hose statement, he left his job “to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team."
The Internet was as quick to react to the news, as Scaramucci was to leave his job.
Scaramucci is Euron Greyjoy. Two weeks ago I had no idea who he was & now he's all over everything.— Kumail Nanjiani (@kumailn) July 30, 2017

Scaramucci wasn't supposed to officially start until Aug. 15. Can't get fired from a job you don't have yet. pic.twitter.com/eOCJJ2IBCr— Alex Fitzpatrick (@AlexJamesFitz) July 31, 2017

Anthony Scaramucci getting fired by the White House is basically the same as Jean Ralphio's rendezvous in accounting. pic.twitter.com/TJJnIwTpaC— Joon Lee (@iamjoonlee) July 31, 2017
