New details emerged on Wednesday about what former Homeland Security secretary John Kelly was doing when President Trump announced that the retired Marine general was the new White House chief of Staff.
On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert admitted that the show had only just completed its cartoon version of Scaramucci and was shocked that his tenure had been so short.
Scaramucci had issued a profanity-filled tirade against the previous chief of staff, Reince Priebus, last week amid broader tumult among the White House staff. "We wish him all the best".
Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer assured colleagues he has no plans to stick around longer than he has to, Politico reported on Thursday. He said, "Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac".
"The President certainly felt that Anthony's comments were inappropriate for a person in that position", spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters. "With Game of Thrones, you have to wait a whole week for a new beheading".
Earlier on Monday, Trump swore in his new chief of staff, Kelly, who is expected to bring a more disciplined approach to running what has become a chaotic White House.
However, it was not known whether the error was a typo or a prank. He went on to mimic Priebus by saying, "Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock block these people the way I cock blocked Scaramucci for six months".
However, as Buzzfeed shares, Scaramucci developed an outline of a communications plan that attempted to "professionalize" a maligned operation. He suggested the President place frequent op-eds in newspapers, do "modernized fireside chats" with Cabinet members and take questions from citizens on livestreams.
