WASHINGTON D.C. — Anthony Scaramucci is out as White House communications director just 10 days after he was welcomed to the administration's team. His ouster comes on the heels of Scaramucci's now notorious profanity-peppered rant to Ryan Lizza at The New Yorker and Trump's appointment of retired Gen. John Kelly as the new White House chief of staff.

"Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director," said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, in a statement, as reported by The New York Times. "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."

During his extremely short tenure, Scaramucci, a former hedge fund executive, was instrumental in the resignations of former White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, and former White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus. Spicer resigned in protest of Scaramucci's appointment and Priebus was forced out following Scaramucci's blistering attack on him in the New Yorker interview.

Kelly personally made the request to have Scaramucci removed as communications director and plans to impose a new discipline at the White House, according to the Times report. It is currently unknown if Scaramucci will leave altogether or take another, less high profile position in the administration.

Although the president's daughter, Ivanka Trump, her husband, Jared Kushner, had been in favor of the president's decision to hire Scaramucci, they began to view his loose lips-loose cannon approach as a political liability and supported his removal.
