WASHINGTON D.C. — Several days after he threatened to fire the entire White House communications staff, Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is out of a job. President Trump announced Scaramucci's departure Monday, bringing a swift end to a tenure that lasted barely more than a week.

Trump had hired Scaramucci 10 days ago when the White House's prior top press secretary, Sean Spicer, had resigned July 21. Spicer had reportedly told colleagues that he was not willing to work with Scaramucci, but that he would stay on in a limited capacity until August.

The new communications director brought a maelstrom of personal drama to the job, culminating with a late-night telephone call to a New York Post reporter in which Scaramucci made profanity-laced tirades against White House officials Stephen Bannon and Reince Preibus and threatened to fire every single White House communications staffer because of leaked information about a dinner that Scaramucci and Trump were going to have with Fox News' Sean Hannity.

Scaramucci's marriage also imploded the same week. His wife, Deirdre, filed for divorce, complaining about his "naked political ambition."

The White House announced the appointment of John Kelly as new chief of staff shortly before news of Scaramucci's exit. Kelly is replacing Preibus, who left on Thursday amid a publicly known rivalry with Scaramucci.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement that Scaramucci "felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team," adding that "we wish him all the best." But other sources told reporters that Kelly had been the one to request that Scaramucci be let go.
