Trump's communications chief resigns after 10 days

After just ten days in the position, Anthony Scaramucci is out as White House communications director.

"The front stabber has been backstabbed", Colbert mourned. But for Scaramucci's access, Trump's impromptu style may be the former communication director's saving grace. "That's not even a whole pay period".

He was sacked, Colbert revealed, because the Trump administration wanted to replace Scaramucci with someone who will last longer.

Part of the reason for ousting Scaramucci, the White House said, was to give Kelly "a clean slate and the ability to build his own team", The Associated Press reported.

Scaramucci's crude comments last week about Priebus and senior strategist Steve Bannon had not seemed to initially agitate Trump, who invited Scaramucci the next morning to fly aboard Air Force One and later announced he was replacing Priebus, an apparent coup for Scaramucci.

Whipple cites James Baker (for President Reagan) and Leon Panetta (for President Clinton) - "an iron fist inside a velvet glove" - as top-tier examples of White House chiefs. When Trump hired him, Scaramucci announced that he would report directly to the President, not to Priebus.

Trump has openly attacked United States attorney general Jeff Sessions because he recused himself from an FBI investigation into potential Russian interference in the last USA election, and is reportedly considering moving him to the Department of Homeland Security.

The announcement comes after Scaramucci slammed two White House officials in an interview with The New Yorker.

Sanders said Trump has given full authority to Kelly, and he'll make determinations inside the White House.

John O. Koehler, the Reagan-era White House communications director who resigned after 11 days due to his childhood affiliation with the Hitler youth.

The departure of Mr Scaramucci followed one of the rockiest weeks of Mr Trump's presidency in which a major Republican effort to overhaul the USA healthcare system failed in Congress and both his spokesman and previous chief of staff left their jobs as White House infighting burst into the open. "That's the good news".

Whipple said that it'll be necessary for Kelly to supervise essentially every staffer, including household names like Conway, Omarosa Manigault and even Bannon and Kushner. "Mr Trump's affinity to generals and an empowered chief of staff" would be welcomed by Congress, he said.

And the President chose to highlight the rising stock market and positive jobs outlook rather than talk about how things might need to change in his White House under Mr Kelly. "A great day at the White House!"

"The most important word in the title is staff, not chief", says Whipple. That influence may not last, but as Trump teeters on the brink of political self-immolation, Kelly may be able to convince him that this is his last chance to turn things around.

"There is clear hierarchy within this White House today, more than there was yesterday, we will see how long this will last".

Monday afternoon, the president took to his favorite social media platform to weigh in on the day's events.
