Anthony Scaramucci out as White House communications director

Anthony Scaramucci is out as the communication director for the White House, according to the reports.

The New York Times reports President Donald Trump fired Scaramucci on Monday, citing three people close to the decision.

Scaramucci was brought in to his role with the White House on July 20. In his brief time as Communications Director, he oversaw the resignation of Sean Spicer and promotion of Sarah Huckabee to Press Secretary.

Last week, he spoke with a writer fro the New Yorker magazine in an expletive laced tirade where he accused White House chief of staff Reince Priebus of being a "paranoid schizophrenic."

Priebus was removed from his position late last week. 

Scaramucci also accused White House chief strategist Steve Bannon of trying to burnish his own reputation.

Scaramucci later tweeted, in part: "I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight" for President Donald Trump's agenda.

The Times said that the decision to remove Scaramucci came at the request of new chief of staff, John Kelly.
