Um, that was quick.

It turns out people do care about White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci’s “colorful language”. Just ten days after that shock-and-awe quote hit the Internet, “The Mooch” is out.

“Reince is a f–king paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci ranted at Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker. He also ripped into White House adviser Steve Bannon.

“I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own c–k,” he said of President Trump’s chief strategist. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the f–king strength of the president. I’m here to serve the country.”

Actually, the country said thanks, but no thanks.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders minimized whether “The Mooch” was fired or resigned with this oblique statement today, “Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director,” the emailed statement from the White House 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,” it continued.

Dave Miller, a Republican from Solano County, Calif. who worked with Scaramucci at the GOP grassroots level in New York City during Governor Pataki’s administration, reflected on Scaramucci’s brief flirtation with power inside the White House.

“Anthony will always be a strong advocate for the president. His departure from the White House will not minimize that. This new Chief of Staff [General Kelley] will mark the day when this president’s White House gets serious about pushing forward POTUS’ Legislative agenda,” Miller told me.

Okay, then. Everyone who wants Mr. Scaramucci to stay, raise your hand. Anybody? Anybody?
