On his last day, Anthony Scaramucci weathered a false report that his wife was leaving him, filing for divorce, because he posted nude photos of her and loved politics more than her.
That was false.
But on July 22, Scaramucci was trying to sanitize his past:
Scaramucci announces on Twitter that for the sake of “full transparency,” he is deleting some old tweets in which he advocated for gun control, called Hillary Clinton “incredibly competent” and expressed hope that she would run for president and called Trump “so smart with no judgement.” “Past views evolved & shouldn’t be a distraction. I serve @POTUS agenda & that’s all that matters,” Scaramucci said.
Here are notable firings and resignations from the Trump Administration, from the 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
