Congressman Neal weighs in on Scaramucci departure

For Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show", it was a mixture of surprise and even a bit of anger. "Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team".

In addition to the strains in the West Wing and with Congress, Kelly starts his new job as tensions escalate with North Korea. Rising sea levels, super droughts, mass extinctions, extreme weather and the melting of the Arctic would mean life as we know it would change dramatically. Maybe Donald Trump can absorb a late education, after all.

Responding to questions, Sanders said Scaramucci was no longer working at the White House.

The top Trump aide, Katie Walsh, decided to leave the administration to work with the pro-Trump group America First Policies.

Now, in homeland security, Kelly was blindsided by the president's first attempt at a travel ban, which is of course blocked by the courts.

The new chief of staff will also be charged with reviving a stalled legislative agenda. The Donald has those in abundance.

Based on the Harvard Law's website, he also served as an "expert in residence" there in 2012. Scaramucci brought on criticism after directing comments about hair and makeup at White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

While the text reads as if Scaramucci was furious and yelling, the audio reveals that the two were laughing, sometimes joking with each other.

WASHINGTON | Ousted White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci had high hopes for improved relationships with reporters, according to a memo posted online Wednesday.

Trump plans to sign the measure into law, the White House has said. That tweet was breathtakingly hypocritical, even for you.

He acknowledged challenges in North Korea and the Middle East, "lots of problems that we inherited from previous administrations".

But with Kelly's appointment, things had shifted. I wrote last week that Scaramucci was in over his head because he lacked the depth and experience needed to lead a communications team.

In his brief time at the White House, Scaramucci seemed to epitomize its chaos. Further, they wanted the new chief of staff to have a chance to do the job the right way, which meant being able to choose his own staff. Without saying it, Scaramucci was saying he was more powerful than Priebus.

Inside the mad king's court, the internecine battles are becoming ever more brutal.

But that rant wasn't the only eyebrow-raising moment during his 10 days in the White House.

The white knight in this latest Washington saga is theNew Yorker journalist who simply stuck to his journalistic values when Scaramucci tried to scare him off reporting an on-the-record interview, and threatened to sack all the White House communication staff if the journalist didn't reveal his source for a previous story.

At this point, the remaining mystery is how, when and how badly this disaster of a presidency will end.
