Donald Trump hails 'great day' as Scaramucci loses White House job

One week after accepting the White House job, the former hedge-fund boss unleashed an expletive-ridden tirade on a few of his new colleagues in a phone call with a New Yorker reporter.

The moment Scaramucci foretold the firing of Reince Priebus, he was writing the chronicle of another political death foretold: his own. Backstabbing among aides has been rife, and rival camps have jockeyed for position.

So a staff shake-up of the sort that Trump tweeted out Friday afternoon is the ordinary solution to a White House in trouble - but this is no ordinary White House problem.

Ball "donated $5,400 to the congressional campaign of anti-Trump Democrat Kathleen Rice in 2015", according to the Post. Everybody was talking about the Mooch, and nobody was talking about President Trump's policies.

Mr Trump's preference to communicate with Americans directly through Twitter is adopted by Mr Scaramucci, who reverses the decision to hold daily press briefings off-camera. If they stay on, it will have been a major accomplishment of the Scaramucci era.

With this new bombshell dropping today, how long will Kelly remain in the big house with Donald, the messy, childish diva? As news of Scaramucci's demise emerged, Spicer's mood was upbeat and smiling.

At the time, Kelly was head of the Department of Homeland Security, and through his tears, he reportedly told Comey that he was so mad at the bitch Trump, he was going to quit!

WILLIAM BRANGHAM: All right, it's something we will keep an eye on.

It's hard to imagine that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the President's daughter and son-in-law, will report to Kelly and surrender their walk-in privileges.

James Brien Comey Jr is an American lawyer who served as the seventh Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from September 4, 2013 until May 9, 2017.

Trump appeared on Monday with Kelly in the Oval Office and in a Cabinet meeting where he predicted the new chief of staff would do a "spectacular job". Mr Scaramucci offers a solitary tweet praising the Republican National Committee for "doing fantastic work to support" the president.

"The president firmly felt that Anthony's comments were inappropriate for a person in that position", said White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Remember, he did the same for Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster when he was named national security adviser. General John Kelly wasted no time putting his stamp on the West Wing. Sanders said he "does not have a role at this time" with the Trump administration.

General Kelly inherits the day-to-day running of a White House staff that - far from marching in lockstep - look like a regiment pinned down by heavy fire, getting conflicting orders from their commander and squabbling over the way forward. The move has raised concerns over the independence of the bureau's authourity to investigate the alleged meddling by Russia in US presidential election. He has the president's confidence. After all, they all took part in a history-making campaign that was characterized by breaking the unwritten rules.

"Overall, I think we're doing incredibly well". So how much is a future favor from the Mooch worth?
