Top Story: Scaramucci Lasts 10 Days as Communications Director

Today’s Top Story: White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was fired on Monday, ending his brief and profane tenure. As of this writing, a replacement has not been announced.

Depending on how you count it, Scaramucci served either 10 days – from his announcement on July 21 to his firing on July 31 – or negative 15 days – from his firing on July 31 to his anticipated start date, August 15. Regardless, Scaramucci is officially the White House Communications Director with the shortest tenure. The previous record holder, Jack Koehler, served 11 days under President Reagan and lost the job when it was learned that in his youth he was part of a German young men’s organization sponsored by the Nazi Party.

After Scaramucci and Koehler, the next three shortest tenures among White House Communication Directors are all from President Trump’s administration, which, we hasten to remind readers, is not even a year old.

We wish Mr. Scaramucci all the best as he returns to a world where he can say “I’m not trying to suck my own cock” and not have it plastered across every news outlet in America.
