The Mooch is out!

Courtesy of the New York Times:  

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.

Okay so I think currently Scaramucci holds the record for the shortest White House tenure in history.  Especially considering the fact that the Mooch did not officially have the job because his business affairs were not yet settled.

Is there a such thing as a negative number tenure at the White House.

Right now somewhere Reince Priebus is bent over with laughter.

By the way keep in mind that the hunt is now on for a THIRD White House Communications director, and this presidency is only seven months old.

    1. And she even has a degree in communications. Maybe. Sorta.

      She'd fit right in but I doubt she would want to lower herself to such a classless position after being a Governor and former VP candidate and all.

      Sarah would be the ideal Trump communication director and press secretary. Not only all her 5 degrees in journalism, covering the Glen Rice games, she also ran the state of Alaska and was the commander in chief when Putin was lurking.

      Trump loves people that are military. Sarah has the military crud. She is a gold star mother and has fiercely worked to help Veterans with PTSD. No one knows the military like Sarah. She has all the attributes Trump loves and she would be the best example to run his communications. You know who she is?

    It wasn’t enough that Anthony Scaramucci was able to get White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus fired this week; now someone close to him is dishonestly targeting Priebus’ marriage. Scaramucci’s pal Arthur Schwartz – who was recently described as his “rep” – publicly accused Priebus of having a mistress before admitting he had made the entire thing up, in a sign of just how startlingly out of control the Scaramucci show has become.

    5. Trump was so itching to give someone a medal, any medal for anything, they had to go back all the way to the Vietnam war? The war Mr. Bonespurs ditched to fight the battle against VD?

    It isn’t a coincidence that the same day Gen. John Kelly takes over as Chief of Staff, the Mooch is told to hit the bricks. To say that Scaramucci was the prototypical Trump hire would be an understatement. The White House will try to sell this as Kelly getting control over an out of control West Wing, but the reality is that Trump has now fired two communications directors and one chief of staff in less than two weeks.

    1. Well, Spicey was only acting communications director until they found a new one.

      I'll bet he's laughing his ass off too. A "told you so" moment since he resigned over Trump's hiring of The Mooch and now has been vindicated as knowing more than the president about who is right for the job.

      Now the question is who can Trump find to replace him?

      Anyone that knows enough to do the job isn't stupid enough to take the job.

      Oh, wait. SARAH PALIN! Didn't she study communications in, like, six or seven colleges?

      And the McCain campaign tried to gussy her all up and claim she had a degree. No proof was ever provided (just like Trig's parentage). The tiny simple mean girl struggles to think her way through even basic ideas (and never figures it out). Dan Quayle was a Rhodes Scholar in comparison. She will never be asked. Even Trump isn't that stupid. The avalanche of ridicule would be astounding.

    While Trump and ‘Mooch’ were creating diversions — lawmakers heard explosive testimony in Russia probe

    ...Bill Browder — once the biggest portfolio investor in Russia but now a leading critic of Vladimir Putin — told the Senate Judiciary Committee how the Russian president needs to lift U.S. sanctions to deliver what he promised to corrupt oligarchs who support his rule, reported Huffington Post.

    “There are approximately 10,000 officials in Russia working for Putin who are given instructions to kill, torture, kidnap, extort money from people and seize their property,” Browder testified.

    Browder and his attorney, Sergei Magnitsky, blew the whistle on a scam by corrupt Russian officials to steal one of his companies and then illegally claimed back $230 million taxes he’d paid.

    U.S. imposed sanctions in 2012 against some Putin cronies involved in the attorney’s death, which a Russian attorney asked Donald Trump to lift in exchange for campaign assistance offered to his son and other top campaign officials.

    “Before the Magnitsky Act, Putin could guarantee them impunity and this system of illegal wealth accumulation worked smoothly,” Browder testified. “However, after the passage of the Magnitsky Act, Putin’s guarantee disappeared.”

    As President Trump drops increasingly broad hints that he believes he is above the law, Congress and the public face an impending crisis that will test whether the Republican Party is more loyal to Trump or to the rule of law. The crisis is all but certain, and the outcome is very much in doubt.

    In talking up his “complete power” of pardon, humiliating Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and denigrating special prosecutor Robert Mueller, Trump has made clear that he doesn’t believe any investigation of his campaign’s contacts with the Russian government is legitimate. “A special counsel should never have been appointed in this case,” Trump told the New York Times.

    With investigators closing in on his friends and family, time is not on Trump’s side. But the weakness of the rule of law is.

      Mooch still wants to work at the White House. Yes, Jared and Ivanka were for him before they were against him. Remember they are all family. If they can work out a deal to make him happy that would satisfy him and keep his mouth shut. He has all the stress coming up with a divorce and child support issues. He likes to run his mouth. It can't be that difficult to find him work so he doesn't lose the White House, too.

    Donald Trump's Favorite Poll Found His Approval Rating Plunged to an All-Time Low

    1. If elections were held today, Trump would get 99 electoral votes.

      "There’s still several ways Trump could win. For example, the economy could go recession-free for the next 3.5 years, having ended its last one in 2009. Democrats could renominate Hillary Clinton, whose approval rating is as low at Donald Trump’s (39 percent). Public opinion could swoon over a triumphant Trump victory over North Korea. And maybe Trump manages to get through a slew of scandals over Russia, conflicts of interest, with the public giving the president a pass if he pardons himself.

      So far, the Republican Party has to decide whether to continue to vigorously defend President Trump, or seek to distance themselves from the chief executive. If you’re in the GOP and represent one of the 33 states that gives Trump less than a 50 percent approval rating, you may not be exactly hitching your wagon to a star. It may be time to look to one’s own fortunes, rather than a president who has been more than willing to throw fellow Republicans, whether they are conservative, moderate or liberal, under a bus."

  32. Anonymous1:42 PM

    A little more than a year after the Russian effort to interfere in the American presidential election came to light, the diplomatic fallout — an unraveling of the relationship between Moscow and Washington on a scale not seen in decades — is taking its toll.

    President Vladimir V. Putin bet that Donald J. Trump, who had spoken fondly of Russia and its authoritarian leader for years, would treat his nation as Mr. Putin has longed to have it treated by the West. That is, as the superpower it once was, or at least a major force to be reckoned with, from Syria to Europe, and boasting a military revived after two decades of neglect.

    That bet has now backfired, spectacularly. If the sanctions overwhelmingly passed by Congress last week sent any message to Moscow, it was that Mr. Trump’s hands are now tied in dealing with Moscow, probably for years to come.

    ...“One of Putin’s greatest goals is to assure Russia is treated as if it was still the Soviet Union, a nuclear power that has to be respected and feared,” said Angela Stent, the director of Eurasian, Russian and East European studies at Georgetown University. “And he thought he might get that from Trump,” said Ms. Stent, who was the national intelligence officer for Russia and Eurasia during the administration of George W. Bush.

    But now, she added, the Russians look at the chaos in the White House “and see a level of unpredictability there, which makes them nervous.” The reaction, she said, was to retreat to old habits — and the expulsion of diplomats is, of course, one of the oldest.

    ...“The Russians would have preferred not to head down this path, but Putin didn’t feel he had a choice but to respond in the classic tit-for-tat manner,” said Rolf Mowatt-Larssen, who has served in a number of senior intelligence roles for the United States, including in Russia. “We’ve been in a new Cold War for some time now. Any hope for a short-term improvement in relations is gone.”

    1. Anonymous3:56 PM

    Trump’s Really Weak Week

    ...But after all his bragging about being a great negotiator and closer, it is President Trump who can’t get it done. He couldn’t even close the deal on a pathetic, bare-bones health care bill, ineffectually bullying Lisa Murkowski, a Republican senator from Alaska, and failing to win over John McCain, who gleefully had his revenge for Trump’s mockery of him as being a loser because he was captured in war.

    Trump can’t get it done for his pal, Putin, either. In fact, the biggest legislative accomplishment before Congress leaves for August will have been passing new sanctions on Russia because lawmakers don’t trust their own president. Talk about weak.

    Congressional Republicans are losing their fear of Trump, making ever more snarky comments about him. North Korea is shooting off missiles and the White House is flustered. The generals are resisting Trump’s tweet edicts. The mortified leader of the Boy Scouts had to apologize for the president’s suggestive and partisan speech.
