COM­MU­NI­CA­TIONS CHIEF SCARA­MUCCI IS OUT

Metro USA (Boston) - - NEWS -

1Don­ald Trump fired An­thony Scara­mucci, over an ob­scene tirade, just over a week af­ter nam­ing him to the job, sources fa­mil­iar with the de­ci­sion said, in the lat­est staff up­heaval to hit the Repub­li­can’s ad­min­is­tra­tion. Scara­mucci’s de­par­ture fol­lows one of the rock­i­est weeks of Trump’s pres­i­dency in which a ma­jor Repub­li­can ef­fort to over­haul the U.S. health­care sys­tem failed in Congress and both his spokesman and pre­vi­ous chief of staff left their jobs as White House in­fight­ing burst into the open. Scara­mucci was dam­aged by com­ments he made to The New Yorker last week in which he at­tacked then-White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and Trump’s chief strate­gist, Steve Ban­non, in pro­fan­ity-laden terms.
