Well, that didn't last long.
Anthony Scaramucci is out as White House communications director, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed on Monday. "Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team," she said in a statement, "We wish him all the best."
His exit comes after his explosive interview with the New Yorker went viral last week, where he flung some extremely explicit insults towards Steve Bannon.
He was on the job for just 10 days.
As news broke, celebrities began celebrating the latest Trump administration development on Twitter:
Yes I did.I knew it.That's why ya don't wait. Ya do it in the now! Strike now! Hey, There's an old Italian expression.. what d'ya gonna do? https://t.co/ce9l9i5Fp0— Mario Cantone (@macantone) July 31, 2017

the only jobs trump will actually end up creating are post-white house DWTS contestant positions for all his fired staffers— Tyler Oakley (@tyleroakley) July 31, 2017

I loved this recurring character, but in my heart of hearts I knew it was only going to be a 3 episode arc. https://t.co/O09llLNUWd— Danny Strong (@Dannystrong) July 31, 2017
It took the Lord 7 days to create the universe. It took Scaramucci 11 days to Make America Great Again. Pretty close!— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) July 31, 2017
