WASHINGTON President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, three people close to the decision said Monday, relieving him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the presidents senior staff.
The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kellys request, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge.

This was foreseeable. Scaramucci was a childish idiot. He should have never been hired in the first place.
Trump lost points with me with his whitehouse hiring of such idiots.
Wow, that was fast! And weird.
Rocky. I laughed. Kelly gets the job on 7/28 and makes this major move 3 days later. Its like lord of the flies over there.
It was a bold strategy from the Trump - bring in the Mooch to smoke out the traitors and Fire Reince.
He completed it in 10 days and leaves with his job completed and head held high
Scaramucci was not taking a salary I heard. So is this a true firing? Can someone really be part of a “team” if the person is not on the payroll?
And all of you pearl, clutching, fainting couch and smelling salts needing Victorian "ladies", are helping to bring down President Trump and undermining his presidency.
Kelly wakes up and fights...when it’s to shut down someone aggressively pro-Trump. All the globalist Generals are there to ride herd on Trump and little else. Mattis, McMaster, and Kelly.
Especially with his remarks about Trump during the campaign. Does no one in the White House have Internet access?
I’ve had tic tacs that lasted longer than Scaramucci.
Yes, Kelly is in charge and he is BFF with that stinking pile of excrement COMEY!
Don’t put any money on that....
You have a link for that?
Right move, he was not ready for prime time. Get him out before anyone notices.
Kelly just got rid of our biggest fighter besides Trump. What a weak decision. Oh well liberals are thrilled. Sadly some FREEPERS agree with the liberals.
In before everyone vigorously defending Scaramucci the past several days turns 180 degrees.
Mooch had to go. He had a great opportunity given to him and he blew it. He made President Trump look really bad, and his obscenity—filled rant to the press revealed very bad judgement on his part.
With my grandmother’s passing a week ago and an ongoing remodel of our house over the last couple weeks, I didn’t even have time to form an opinion about this man pro or con.
I will say though Trump needs to stop entertaining much less actually permitting any more firings or disruptions in his administration. At some point he’s gotta say to himself and his closest confidants, “We have to work with what we’re stuck with at this point we have no more choices”. At least till the end of the year.
All this tumult is not good for the image he wishes to portray which is an experienced executive in full charge of an operation. At this point he’s just gotta suck up whatever is left in the staff situation.
The swamp isn’t going to be drained in a day. No sense in rushing about madly like a headless chicken, chasing after dreams of quick resolution. No sense at all. If he thinks the press hasn’t been kind to him lately just give them a few more juicy tablodish crap pieces like this that practically write themselves.
His “mouth” was a problem, especially for someone “setting the tone” for communications from this White House. And demanding to have direct line to the President and going around the new GENERAL Kelly ... uhhh, nope, see ‘ya.
