That's 'cause they didn't want him to try to take a mini fridge.

@jespah,
interestingly .... Spicer could come back

Quote:
Spicer, naturally, was furious, and quickly said he would resign rather than report to Scaramucci. And Trump accepted his resignation (though it technically hasn’t gone into effect yet, suggesting it’s not impossible that Spicer might even stick around now that Scaramucci is gone).

Really have to appreciate this part here:

Quote:
In a Twitter message just before 5:30 on Monday morning, just hours before the announcement about Mr. Scaramucci, Mr. Trump insisted that there has been “No WH chaos!”


Because nothing says "no White House chaos" like firing your fourth Communications Director in six months.....


Okay, but if there is no chaos, why am I feeling dizzy.

@roger,
It's the feeling of exhilaration that comes from so much winning.

Quote:
Former communications director Anthony Scaramucci was reportedly escorted off White House property after his abrupt firing Monday.

CNN's Jeff Zeleny was the first to report the surprising detail on-air.


"We are told by our producers, our team, that he was escorted off," Zeleny told "CNN Newsroom" host Brooke Baldwin. "That’s not necessarily unusual. If someone is no longer working here, he has no reason to be here. We are told he was escorted off the property earlier this afternoon. The question is what happens next?"

CBS News' Jackie Alemany tweeted a similar account that she posted on Twitter.

Seems like every position in this administration comes with a desk and an ejection seat.


and an escort off the grounds if you're Scaramucci


Wow. It was all faster than I expected. Wow.

Comedians Protest Anthony Scaramucci’s Ouster
Quote:
Industry estimates had projected that Scaramucci’s presence on the White House staff would generate between four and five billion dollars for the comedy industry this year alone, a windfall that has now been erased.

@tsarstepan,
Spare a thought for Mario Cantone. He was set to make quite a bit a Mooch impersonator. (Hope he didn't make any large purchases.)

@tsarstepan,
I like the fenucci apologists on Faux. They've made it sound like this was all planned for a purpose known only to Trump (and them).

@farmerman,
I read the spin on the Trump events thread, when you think through their logic, it only makes the president look worse. Who was that guy people always say someone is like when they bring about convoluted plots? Machiavelli? So they think Trump knew Scaramucci would cause all of those events to fall down like perfect dominoes? If Trump was able plan all of that, why hire those fellows in the first place?

I guess it's because Trump is afraid to fire anyone personally. Afraid.

@revelette1,
exactly. Ive been reading some of our own A2k "pundits" whove entered that xact spin of which I spoke. Several of them are true strangers to drawing logical conclusions and are merely a few steps beneath the fully-blown conspiracy yahoos like Camlok (JTT) and Glenn.

@revelette1,
Another bad movie.

A lot of slips of tongue. Like Sam Stein said CERN! And let it slip. Talking to Rep. Tom Cole. About Healthcare. I wonder if this healthcare stuff is connected. Connected with cocaine addicts. Connected with the new world order. This on 7-19-2017. So what do you think Snood. Michael Lindell is talking about jobs that leave. I make every part of my pillow here too. He makes pillows! He is right about the jobs that are leaving. Maybe too little too late. The jobs that aren't leaving are doctors giving painkillers and psychodepressants. Or people making snake clamps. We are not prospectively in hell. We are in hell. Ed Henry a fox news host even says that part of the reason for the microchip inserted into people is for healthcare.
Most people are fascinated by giants, says Vince McMahon. umm. ok. Bostonman are you fascinated by giants and elephant umbrellas? According to Vince McMahon most people are. We need achievers, says Asa Hutchinson. I wonder how many times Asa Hutchinson has paid for sex. Nephelism, says Marty Knoxon. Mermaids - 1990 Wynona Ryder. Pretty good. Saw it on pluto Tv. But you know Helmut Kohl's first name. The first four letters are HELM. Four letters in the word Tusk as in Mammoth tusk. Half the world is dying of hunger and MSNBC has these people on Kristina Saffran and Marty Knoxon talking about people who have eating disorders. It makes sense only if you know there is a satan. There is always a point. I doubt that a nice guy works for the department of Homeland security.
Snood how many tens do you see in Night of the living dead?

@revelette1,
I have two books by Machiavelli, The Prince (small bk) and Florentine Histories, larger and thicker. I've managed to never read them in all this time. I remember getting into maybe three pages of The Prince and putting it back on the shelf.

I'm going to try again, after I finish the book Snow by Orhan Pamuk. I'm halfway through; I wouldn't call it an easy read, but I'll finish it since it gets pretty interesting every so often.

Re Machiavelli - this time I'll start with the Histories..

On Scaramucci, I don't care for him (rolls eyes), but I seriously enjoy his name.
