In a way, Anthony Scaramucci's fate was sealed by the very thing that drew Donald Trump to him in the first place - his inability to keep his mouth shut.
You may have heard of the POTUS's shock decision to fire his new Communications Director at the White House after just ten days in the role in news that broke last night. It seems that The Mooch's outburst about outgoing Chief of Staff Reince Priebus (calling him a 'paranoid schizophrenic') didn't endear him to the new Chief of Staff John Kelly, who demanded that Trump replace him.
Needless to say, the Internet had a field day with the whole fiasco, but Kate Hudson posted a picture that summed up the surreal nature of the whole affair perfectly.
It is an elaborate comedy, right?

Scaramucci got thrown out, lost his wife and his job.
Man, he was within a pickup truck of being the perfect country song.#Scaramucci

Scaramucci got a book deal about his time at the White House. I'm hearing it's a one pager, with room to spare...

#Scaramucci - the name even sounds like "get the hell out of here!" I picture Tony Soprano putting out the cat - "Scaramucci, little pussy"

If #Scaramucci had put in his Two Weeks Notice when he started, he would still have 3 days left.

#Scaramucci I'm still on the same roll of toilet paper that I started when the Mooch was hired as Communications Director.

Where do you go in life as Anthony Scaramucci when you're the man that Donald Trump fired for being an arsehole? #Scaramucci
