Scaramucci tirades ignite smoldering White House tensions

Seriously when the newly hired White House communications director makes a drunken call (who's knows if Anthony Scaramucci Mane had been drinking, but if he hadn't been, it's worse) to a New Yorker reporter in which he hates on the president's chief of staff, then you know heads are going to roll.

Priebus had been on the trip, but according to the White House Pool report, the auto he was riding in was separated from the President's motorcade, as Mr. Trump headed back to the White House.

Trump announced Friday that he named General John Kelly as his new Chief of Staff.

Trump appointed Kelly, a retired Marine general, to secretary of Homeland Security on December 7, 2016 and he was confirmed on January, 20, 2017 the first day of Trump's administration.

As Homeland Security secretary, Kelly has taken the lead on some of Trump's most controversial policies, including his executive orders suspending the admission of refugees and temporarily barring visitors from several Muslim-majority nations.

Priebus previously served as the chairman of the Republican National Committee.

"I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country", the President wrote on Twitter. "[Trump] wanted to go in a different direction, and I support him in that, and I look forward to working with General Kelly in the next couple of weeks", he said.

Trump said in a tweet.

Scaramucci, a Wall Street financier, said Thursday in a television interview that he has a "very good idea who the senior leakers are", adding that he had talked to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and to his "buddies" in the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the matter.

Scaramucci notably said he reports directly to the president, not to the chief of staff. Trump's family, including daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, had lost faith in Priebus.

Trump's first White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, resigned last week with the news that Scaramucci was being brought on as communications director. "I'm gonna fire so many people", he says.

His resignation came in spite of Trump's request that he remain in this position, a White House official and top GOP advisers said.

New York Times Demands Apology From Fox News
On Sunday, the Times pushed back. "With this segment, Fox & Friends demonstrated what little regard it has for reporting facts". She said the online story was changed to reflect comment from the Times after the newspaper reached out.

During his CNN interview, Scaramucci groused that details of his White House dinner with Trump and some of Scaramucci's former colleagues at Fox News Channel had become public.

"John Kelly is a great American".

The publication of a freaky and expletive-laden rant by White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci has prompted fresh questions over chaos in the White House. "It's just getting in the mud, and I think the palace intrigue stuff is annoying and I think it's a distraction and it takes away from the President's agenda".

His expletive-laden tirade about his White House co-workers grated some in Trump's orbit, the same source said, calling the comments "embarrassing".

"I'm not going to get into that subject". General Kelly has been a star, done an incredible job thus far, respected by everybody. "Secretary Kelly is an outstanding leader who has served his country honorably and I know he will do an excellent job at the White House".

As Secretary of Homeland Security, Kelly has played a key role in the border security of the Trump Administration.
