Game of Clowns: Scaramucci accidentally gets himself fired

It seems loud mouths don’t last too long in Washington. Not unless their last name is Trump.

Just the other day, President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director.

The decision comes days after the wealthy the Goldman Sachs banker and New York financier unleashed an oh-so-lovely and ironic rant against “untrustworthy” members of The Trump Administration. His hiring leading to the resignation of Sean Spicer, the former press secretary to President Trump, and Reince Priebus, the president’s first chief of staff.

“The Mooch”, as he likes to call himself, said to The New Yorker’s correspondent Ryan Lizza: “They’ll all be fired by me. I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus — if you want to leak something — he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.”

Mr. Scaramucci later told interviewers that Priebus was “a fucking paranoid schizophrenic” who would be asked to resign, and that, unlike Steve Bannon, the chief strategist to the president, Scaramucci boasted “I’m not trying to suck my own cock”.

As New York an insult as they come.

Scaramucci, before his firing, took to Twitter to say: “I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for @realDonaldTrump’s agenda. #MAGA”.

The irony gets even more delicious when, as The New York Times reports, the decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci came at the request of John F. Kelly, the new White House chief of staff hired as a result of Scaramucci’s influence to fire Reince Priebus.

It’s unknown whether Scaramucci will be leaving the White House in a clown car as of this time.
