Three days ago, I wrote a reminder here that Anthony Scaramucci was NOT YET hired as communications director, and suggested that he'd be well-advised to shut up. Well, as I was saying...
This has not been a good week for the fellow, especially given how clearly power-mad he was. Still, it's an impressive achievement to be fired from a job one hasn't been yet hired for. Particularly when the job is as a communications expert. The larger question is whether he'll remain overtly loyal to Trump or revert to his words during the primary where he slammed Trump for how he "bullies" people, and "the way he talks about women” and for being "anti-American," "divisive" and "an inherited money guy from Queens County" -- and even more.
By the way, do not adjust your monitors, that sound you hear in the background is not static, but Reince Priebus laughing.
And Sean Spicer, too.
Also, know too that the grinding noise is not rusty rotors in need of oiling, but Arthur Schwartz gagging on his bile. (Schwartz, you may recall, is Scaramucci's friend who has been on a smarmy tweetstorm against Spicer and pretty much anything that moves that is not in love and awe of Anthony Scaramucci. He has officially used up his Schottenfreude chips.)
But at least it's nice to know that Trump knows and will hire all the best people.
It's worth keeping this in mind, as well -- what with the fastest press spokesman to be fired, the fastest Chief of State fired, and firing the Communications Director before being hired, what we should keep a lookout for now is Trump to fire someone before they're even announced.
