Scaramucci Out as White House Communications Director

Scaramucci's run as White House spokesman ends after just over a week, the same day John Kelly is sworn in as Chief of Staff

WASHINGTON, D.C -- The "Mooch" is gone.  After a little more than a week on the job, Anthony Scaramucci is out as the new White House communications chief. 

Scaramucci got off to a rough start, including a profanity-laced tirade against now-former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus  in a magazine interview. 

Priebus abruptly departed Friday and was replaced by former Marine general John Kelly, the secretary of homeland security.  

Kelly was sworn in as the new chief-of-staff this morning.  Scaramucci is a Wall Street hedge fund manager who has no experience in the communications field. 

His hiring as communications director was followed by the resignation of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
