President Donald Trump has changed his mind, the second time in a row during one week. On Monday, he removes Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director.
The White House mess – that is the right name for the current situation in the President’s office who removed the second communications director in one week. Probably, wonderful but forgotten 1986 satirical novel by Christopher Buckley predicted a terrible Trump-like presidency times in the White House.
Anthony “the Mooch” Scaramucci spent only 10 days as communications director but he was able to increase the sense of chaos at the heart of the Trump administration. His turbulent series of media appearances over the last week shocked everyone including Donald Trump. Sarah Huckabee Sanders as a press secretary released the statement that reads:
“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House communications director. Mr Scaramucci felt it was best to give chief of staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best.”

Since Tuesday, according to the press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Scaramucci “does not have a role at this time,” and Donald Trump “felt his comments were inappropriate” but Trump Jr wrote on Twitter:
