It’s only been a few days, and rumors are starting to fly as to whether, or not, Anthony Scaramucci is really fired.
He entered the White House in a flurry of drama, created some more drama, and left in more firey drama. Actually, true confession, some of us, … me …, were enjoying the brash hysteria, just a bit. It might not be such a bad thing to have “The Mooch” around a bit longer. If these rumors are true, maybe the entertainment won’t end just yet.
The LA Times starts us off with a hit piece suggesting the theory that Scaramucci was sent it to create some chaos.
If the Trump administration has taught the nation anything, it’s that all appointees’ names should be written down in pencil. Within hours of taking the oath of office Monday, the new White House chief of staff, and former general, John Kelly ousted Anthony Scaramucci, who had won a surprise appointment as communications director just 10 short days ago.
As soon as Scaramucci, whose background is in hedge funds and not political communications, appeared at the White House bazaar, you knew an explosion was imminent.
And the Gateway Pundit has an interview with Roger Stone, who thinks the Scaramucci explosion was all a political suicide bomber.
Steve was filling in for Chris Plante on The Chris Plante Show on WMAL Radio in Washington DC.
Roger Stone told Steve that Anthony Scaramucci was sent in as a “POLITICAL SUICIDE BOMBER” and may land a job elsewhere in the Trump Administration.
ROGER STONE ALSO COMMENTED ON THE WASHINGTON POST‘S BREAKING REPORT ON MONDAY.
And then, in Lifezette, the question arises, Is The Mooch really gone?
But Scaramucci is likely not gone. That’s because President Donald Trump has never truly gotten rid of any of his trusted advisers, even after subjecting them to the humiliation of a public firing.
Scaramucci is likely not even in the doghouse with Trump. It was widely reported that Trump wanted to bring Scaramucci into the White House to be an aggressive champion of the message, to fire leakers, and to bypass Reince Priebus, the chief of staff.
But then Scaramucci gave a expletive-laden interview to The New Yorker on Thursday. When Kelly got there Monday, he terminated Scaramucci.
It won’t be the end of the “Mooch.” Trump has been in regular contact with Scaramucci since the former investment banker interviewed for a job in the executive branch during the transition. Scaramucci was reportedly angry that Priebus blocked him for jobs in the administration.
It’s likely Scaramucci will keep the president’s cellphone number, and Trump will continue answering his calls. Why? Because Trump keeps old advisers around.
So, pop the pop corn. The show may not be over.
