Did Jezebel KILL The Mooch?
The New York Times reports that, after an extremely ceremonious (and entertaining) 10 days, Anthony “Tony Yayo” Scaramucci has been kicked to the curb as White House Communications Director. This was not at the behest of his BFF Trump, reports the Times, but because of new Chief of Staff John F. Kelly:
The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge.
We will update as more information becomes available. LOL!!!!!!!!!
Update, 3:08 PM: The White House has released a statement. It reads, “Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best.” Yes, Scaramucci is definitely known for his ability to step aside out of altruism. What a dear, sweet thing!
Update, 3:29 PM: CBS News reporter Jackie Alameny cites a source that Gen. Kelly is the maybe only white guy alive who wants less Game of Thrones.
