Reports revealed on Monday, July 31st that Anthony Scaramucci has been removed from his communications director position at the White House. Scaramucci was only a part of the Trump team since Friday, July 21st.
The announcement came shortly after the former communications director made headlines for personal reasons. His wife, who was pregnant with their second child, filed for divorce during her final trimester. The announcement also occurred on the same day that the new Chief of Staff, John Kelly, was hired.
Scaramucci responded to the shocking news in an exclusive interview with TMZ, which was published on Tuesday, August 1st. The reporter asked, “What’s your best advice for the next communications director coming in?”
Scaramucci replied, “It’s not appropriate for me to comment right now, but I appreciate you being here because I know you have a job to do.” The reporter then asked, “What are you going to do next, man? You have a lot of money on the line, you have a big business, you have a new family; what are you going to work on next?”
“I’m working on being the best person I can be.” He continues, “I want Chief of Staff Kelly to have an unbelievable opportunity inside the White House.”
He also revealed that he “can’t dance,” so he most likely will not be featured on “Dancing with the Stars” like rumors have insinuated. However, he refused to comment on whether he said goodbye to President Trump before leaving.
