Anthony Scaramucci, Trump’s White House Communications Director for a shockingly abrupt 10 days, has teased his plans moving forward. According to Twitter, “The Mooch” will be starting his own news site called The Scaramucci Post.

Scaramucci’s tenure at the White House was a whirlwind, culminating into an expletive-laden tirade against other White House staff, including former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and former Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon.
“Reince is a f—ing paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” he said, before mimicking Priebus. ”’Let me leak the f—ing thing and see if I can c–k block these people the way I c–k blocked Scaramucci for six months.'”
“I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own c–k,” he said.
On the heels of a slew of high profile resignations and departures from the White House, John Kelly was eventually brought on board to establish a discipline formerly unknown in this administration.
“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. “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.”
Given Scaramucci’s track record, it’s unclear whether his news site will even last as long as his tenure in the White House.
