Anthony Scaramucci is out as White House communications director after just 10 days on the job – and just hours after President Donald Trump’s new chief of staff, John Kelly, was sworn into office.
Hoping to turn the page on a tumultuous opening chapter to his presidency, Trump had insisted earlier on Monday that there was “no chaos” in his White House as he swore in the retired marine general as second chief of staff.
Highest Stock Market EVER, best economic numbers in years, unemployment lowest in 17 years, wages raising, border secure, S.C.: No WH chaos!

Not long after, Scaramucci, who shocked many with his profane outburst last week against then-chief of staff Reince Priebus, was gone. Priebus was sacked on Friday.
