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.

Well that didn’t take long.....
Definitely the right move.
Ugh. Stupid Kelly. I am telling you that this is a huge mistake. Scaramucci has been a godsend for the White House. Oh well I guess they will just fall all over themselves letting the press win. No fighters but trump now.
In before everyone vigorously defending Scaramucci the past several days turns 180 degrees.
He is WEIRD. Scaramucci, that is. It was if the guy was on drugs, or something.
Reince Priebus is laughing his ass off.
No surprise here. There should be a special Darwin Award for people who commit political suicide as quickly and as thoroughly as the Mooch did.
Well, that was fast.
is there a sarcasm tag i missed?
But he was really, really great while he was there. Really.
Kelly is in charge.
Don’t let anyone doubt it...Scaramucci apparently did. Big ass mistake. Don’t mess with a four-star Marine, they believe in controlling the battlefield.
I have to keep telling myself what I told myself the day Trump was sworn in. I expected a rocky first year, as Trump learns the ropes.
I just pray by the end of the year, things stabilize.
An unwritten tenet of taking command - not in your officer’s handbook - conduct a major public “execution” of someone fairly senior immediately after taking command. Things will then fall in line nicely.
Nope. You obviously want weak people at the white house who won’t curse or fight back. Disgusting.
Are you saying General Kelly is weak?
High on POWER!!!
Wonder if his wife will take him back?
