UPDATE 7/31/2017: IT APPEARS THAT ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI IS NOW OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE AS COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR
In my opinion, what did him in was not his profane rant to a reporter or even his Trump-like tough-guy behavior; but the fact that he pushed Trump off the front page and became his own story for a few days.
One can only wonder at the type of tax break Scaramucci will receive on his federal taxes since he purportedly quit his job and arranged for the sale of assets before assuming the position of White House Communications Director. Scaramucci will not be the first Trump appointee to benefit from tax laws favorable to government appointees.
It appears that Section 1043 of the Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S. Code § 1043 - Sale of property to comply with conflict-of-interest requirements) represents a potential windfall for those seeking to shelter last-minute payouts to those assuming office. According to published reports, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson may save between $11 and $48 million on his tax bill. Other Trump appointees like Todd Ricketts, Betsy DeVos, and Wilbur Ross, will also be able to take advantage of the provision.
As for Trump's Chief of Staff, the position went to former Marine General (4-stars) John F, Kelley who was formerly the Secretary of Homeland Defense. It appears that Kelly will be the no-nonsense adult in the room -- but will he be capable taming the Trump wild-man act?
Original post ...
He is young, rich, brash, profane, and fearless – and he is now running the White House Communications Office over the alleged objections of President Trump’s Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus. He is the former hedge fund manager, Anthony Scaramucci, another New York progressive who appears to be slavishly loyal to President Trump. Reince’s protégé spokesman, Sean Spicer, has already resigned and was replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
I would not be surprised to see Scaramucci become the Chief of Staff once the Trump Administration’s leakers are discovered and purged – and possibly prosecuted.
I have heard various pundits compare the White House to the “Monkey House” at the zoo. Visitors who are entering can barely stand the stench. Visitors who have been there for 30-minutes appear to tolerate the smell. And, visitors who have been there for more than an hour, do not even notice the smell. Even the zoo employees appear not to mind the smell as they acclimate to their environment.
This is the perfect “take no prisoners” while smiling type of guy. A strong personality needed to combat the progressive socialist democrats and their attempt to deflect and diffuse attention from their prosecutable scandals and misdeeds. The perfect man to hold Robert Mueller in check while the democrat-inspired witch-hunt proceeds.
Bottom line …
For those looking for a significant change, fuhgeddaboudit as the New York goombas are wont to say in The Godfather. Trump remains an undisciplined, petulant little boy with delusions of grandeur and is so surrounded by sycophants that he believes he is smarter than everyone else in the room. And since becoming President, Trump has validated his mindset and worldview. How else can you explain how former Ambassador John Bolton is on the outside while son-in-law Jared Kushner fumbles his way around the world.
We are so screwed. But it is still better than Hillary.
