Another day, another exit from the Trump White House.

President Donald Trump has removed his communications director Anthony Scaramucci barely 10 days after giving him the job, which was followed by two high-level resignations — of press secretary Sean Spicer and chief of staff Reince Priebus.

Scaramucci’s removal came reportedly at the request of Trump’s new chief of staff John Kelly, a former Marines general who is expected to use his military experience to bring order to the president’s chaotic White House riven as it is by infighting.

Scaramucci had boasted of reporting to the president directly, and not to the chief of staff.
