Breaking: Mooch, We Hardly Knew Ye

I was tempted this morning to tweet out something like, “More chaos at the White House, or as they call it in Trump world, Monday.”

Just now the news is breaking that Scaramucci is outalready—as White House communications director, apparently at the demand of new White House chief of staff John Kelly. The New York Times says, “It was not clear whether Mr. Scaramucci will remain employed at the White House in another position or will leave altogether.”

I’m starting to wonder whether many of Trump’s moves are intended chiefly to excite the news media and amuse the rest of us.

I recall seeing someone over the weekend that the over-under line on Scaramucci’s tenure was 41 days. I’m also wondering if the Mooch was an instrument for getting rid of Priebus. In any case, Kelly looks like an example of chapter 7 of The Prince.

And it’s not even noon yet out here on the left coast.
