Just ten days into his role as White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci, known as ‘The Mooch’, has been fired from his position.

In just over a week as the White House Communications Director, Scaramucci was at the heart of multiple controversies, including, but not limited to, his profanity-laced interview with the New Yorker, his wife filing for divorce, and the firing of Reince Priebus.

According to a statement from the White House, Scaramucci left the position because he felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly “a clean slate” and the “ability to build his own team.”

via New York Times:

Mr. Scaramucci’s abrupt removal came just 10 days after the wealthy New York financier was brought on to the West Wing staff, a move that convulsed an already chaotic White House and led to the departures of Sean Spicer, the former press secretary, and Reince Priebus, the president’s first chief of staff.

The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president, not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge.

It was not clear whether Mr. Scaramucci will remain employed at the White House in another position or will leave altogether.

Whether or not we believe that explanation is irrelevant (we don’t) — all that matters is Twitter’s glorious reaction to the news that Scaramucci had been fired and “The Mooch was loose.”

So thanks for everything, Mooch. We barely knew ya, but boy did we love ya.
