Yes, it happened.
Turning Left readers are always very well informed, so this is not a breaking story.
Anthony Scaramucci was fired by President Donald Trump.
Rolling Stone ranks his 10 days in the White House, from “biblical murder analogies to denials of auto-fellatio, the Mooch’s brief tenure will be, at the very least, memorable.”
There was a false report today that Scaramucci’s wife was leaving him, filed for divorce, because he posted nude photos of her and loved politics more than she.
Anthony Scaramucci lasted 10 days in the White House.
Here are notable firings and resignations from the Trump Administration, from our friends at LATimes.com:
- Anthony Scaramucci, Director of communications (fired), 10 days
- Reince Priebus, White House chief of staff (resigned), 189 days
- Derek Harvey, National Security Council Middle East advisor (fired), 186 days

- Craig Deare, National Security Council senior director for Western Hemisphere affairs (fired), 26 days
- Mike Flynn, National security advisor (resigned), 22 days

That’s a list to rival, well, any previous administration.
Candidate Donald Trump, The Don, Donnie “Make-America-Great-Again” T., boasted that he knew the best people. He would hire only the best people.
But he’s treating the West Wing like an episode of that little-watched The Apprentice, even calling the Cabinet Room as the “boardroom.”

Donald Trump, the most insecure man in America, governing, if you can call it that, out of spite for President Obama.
Who is next to go?
