Did Scaramucci get old school ‘you’re fired’ from The Donald? Either way, Twitter loves it

Anthony Scaramucci

Anthony Scaramucci lost his wife and his job, so it doesn’t seem like a really great week for The Mooch.

“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director,” a statement from the White House press secretary reads. “Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best.”

“We wish him the best” is really the “I pray for our child” of severance notes,” @WillMcAvoyACN tweeted.

Another Twitter user made a (humorous if you’re not The Mooch) observation: “Between being canned this week & his wife filing for divorce last week, #Scaramucci is one dead dog away from becoming a country music song.”

“Trump may think that the 4 pm (eastern) MLB trade deadline applies to him and the White House staff, as well,” @StuPolitics wrote.

Scaramucci, who unleashed a tirade at a New York Daily News reporter, boasted about reporting directly to the president, not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly. He’s also reportedly the reason why Sean Spicer gave Trump deuces and decided he was out. According to The New York Times, President Trump made the decision to remove “Scary-Moochie” at Kelly’s request.

While it is uncertain if Scaramucci will take on another role in the Trump administration, Twitter had fun with his 10-day tenure.

Many tweeters pulled no punches.

“To put Anthony Scaramucci’s tenure in context, Trump has sexually assaulted more women than Mooch served days in office,” @KaivanShroff tweeted in a sick burn to The Mooch and The Donald.

Others went a more “WWJD” way.

But the rest were unapologetically clever.

News of Scaramucci’s removal came hours after Trump swore in a new chief of staff, retired General John Kelly. Politico reported the dismissal came at Kelly’s request, citing two unidentified White House officials.

But chaos in the White House? Nah.

The White House is expected to brief the press after the president presents the Medal of Honor. Watch the live stream below.
