Trump’s White House Is In Chaos As He Parts With An Astounding Number Of Senior Officials

Published

It was only a matter of time for Priebus. We all knew this was coming, following the newly-minted White House communications director’s absolutely bananas ad hoc interview with the New Yorker in which he threatened to fire people. A lot of people.

In what began as a phone call to The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza in which Scaramucci was trying to coax the identity of an anonymous source, or in Scaramucci terms a “leaker,” he ended up unleashing 31 flavors of mafioso crazypants.

Scaramucci had been salty for months because he was promised Spicer’s gig, but president Trump had been talked down from that ledge by none other than Reince Priebus, who was Trump’s Chief of Staff. Sean Spicer “resigned” immediately following Scaramucci’s appointment.

After being assured by Lizza that he was not going to out his source and also that the dinner on which he’d reported would’ve come out anyway, Scaramucci went on to explain that he’d “…asked people not to leak things for a period of time and give me a honeymoon period. They won’t do it.”

Scaramucci continued, increasingly agitated, “They’ll all be fired by me. I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly. Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic — a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said. Ryan Lizza says Scaramucci then channelled Priebus as he spoke: “ ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.’”

Our greatest hope is that Robert Mueller has already contacted Priebus and whispered the magic word “immunity” in his ear. For Priebus to have ascended to head the GOP, then to White House Chief of Staff, only to be undone by a guy who refers to himself in third person as “the Mooch”… yeah, that must sting.
