The concern trolls were out again in full force after the shock firing of White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, trumpeting that the end of the Trump administration was nigh and that claims of 4D chess were just blind shilling.
Well, as usual, 4D chess was the plan all along.
“Anthony Scaramucci has been removed from his position as White House communications director, just 10 days after it was announced he would take it, an administration official said.
The change comes just hours after former Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly was sworn in as White House chief of staff. It also comes four days after the New Yorker magazine published an expletive-filled interview with Mr. Scaramucci, in which the Wall Street financier attacked other top staffers in the White House, including Mr. Kelly’s predecessor Reince Priebus.
Mr. Scaramucci, who is nicknamed “The Mooch,” was removed at the urging of Mr. Kelly, who is seeking to impose more discipline in the White House, two administration officials said.
Mr. Scaramucci is expected to retain his position at the U.S. Export-Import Bank, a White House official said. He asked to keep that position when he gave his resignation after Mr. Kelly’s push.
In a statement, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that Mr. Scaramucci would be leaving his role as communications director. “Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team,” she said.”
Furthermore, in an interview with Steve Malzberg on Tuesday, Roger Stone, confidant to President Donald Trump and former adviser to the Trump campaign, described Scaramucci as a “political suicide bomber” who was sent in for the sole task of neutralizing leakers in the White House, including former Chief Of Staff Reince Preibus.
Once again, it looks like we’ve learned a valuable lesson about waiting to pass judgement on actions taken by the administration until all the facts come out.
Also, 4D chess is real.
