Anthony Scaramucci was relieved of his duties as Trump’s communications director a mere ten days after he was appointed. “The Mooch” was fired after his profanity-laden rant to a reporter for the New Yorker in which he called former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus “a fucking paranoid schizophrenic,” and accused Steve Bannon of sucking his “own cock.”
In a facepalm-worthy moment of blatant hypocrisy, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that President Pussy Grabber gave Scaramucci the ax because he “felt that Anthony’s comments were inappropriate for a person in that position.”
Worst of all, poor Scaramucci gave up everything to be Trump’s lapdog, including his wife and the opportunity to witness the birth of his newborn child. It would all be terribly tragic if he wasn’t such a horrible human being and the memes weren’t so side-splittingly hilarious. Twitter has had an absolute field day with Scaramucci’s firing, and the reaction of the internet is definitely the best thing to come out of his ten days as Trump’s communications director.

Scaramucci’s brief tenure as Comm Director won’t give us years of cringe-worthy interviews or leaking about leakers
