WOW! News just broke President Trump has removed Anthony Scaramucci as White House Communications Director!
New York Times reports:
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 president’s senior staff.
Mr. Scaramucci’s abrupt removal came just 10 days after the wealthy New York financier was brought on to the West Wing staff, a move that convulsed an already chaotic White House and led to the departures of Sean Spicer, the former press secretary, and Reince Priebus, the president’s first chief of 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. Kelly’s 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.

According to Axios, Kelly broke the news to Scaramucci.
Meet the new boss: Scaramucci’s departure came at the request of new chief of staff John Kelly, who is making his presence known in his first day on the job. Kelly broke the news to Scaramucci almost immediately after being sworn in. A source familiar tells Axios:
“Kelly wanting to turn the page. New culture. Mooch no discipline. Thought he’d burned his credibility.”
It is not known at this time if Scaramucci will still work in the Trump administration following his removal as Communications Director.
