Ten days that Mooched the world

Still, it is possible to see how Scaramucci - and others - might have made an assumption about the "spirit" of the call to Lizza, in which Scaramucci referred to Reince Priebus as a "f--ing paranoid schizophrenic" and accused the then-White House chief of staff of disclosing sensitive information to the media.

Despite President Donald Trump's assurances Monday that there was no chaos in the White House and that the day of Scaramucci's firing was a great day, that someone in the most senior communications position could be hired July 21 and sent packing 10 days later doesn't suggest a stable work environment.

Sen. Dick Durbin of IL tells CNN he voted for Kelly for Homeland Security secretary, wanted to work with him in that role, and now in his new position.

A week is a long time in politics, but the former White House Head of Communications Anthony Scaramucci discovered that while ten days is even longer, it's by no means an impressive tenure.

Scaramucci's 10-day tenure was an natural disaster in the figurative sense that it was a violent rupture in the White House.

When HuffPost's Vicky Ward asked Scaramucci on Tuesday what he planned to do next, he responded, "I am going to go dark".

A slew of alerts, badges, and dings blew up my phone as the news of Scaramucci's resignation came in - but during the chaotic yet comedic Trump administration, I can't say I was surprised to learn of the Mooch's exit from his short cameo in the Trump White House.

After he got the White House gig, the Mooch was quick to delete past tweets complimenting Hillary Clinton and assure reporters "I love the president".

President Trump on Friday removed Mr Priebus as chief of staff and turned to Mr Kelly, who he hopes will bring military discipline to an administration weighed down by a stalled legislative agenda, infighting among West Wing aides and a stack of investigations. I know you're a millionaire but you need to ball out or your oil-soaked hair will rot like a tub of Crisco left out in the sun after a turkey fry-off.

That is no small mission in Trump's White House, where a rotating cast of family and staff with unclear roles and opaque job titles walk into the Oval Office seemingly at will. The economy is doing incredibly well, and many other things.

Jimmy Fallon "The Tonight Show" host took time in his monologue to offer his thoughts on the White House changes. "The Marines have landed at the White House".

While Scaramucci's tenure only lasted an eye-blink, he certainly won't be the last member of Team Trump who loses access to Air Force One. During his Scaramucci monologue, Trevor Noah gave the Mooch the montage treatment-but he couldn't help but marvel at how quickly the guy got fired.

As for the escalating tensions with North Korea, Trump says the situation "will be handled". Most of what I said was humorous and joking.
