Washington (CNN)Anthony Scaramucci is set on living his best life.

After five days working at the White House, the shortest-lived communications director stint in history, Scaramucci told TMZ while departing the Trump International Hotel in Washington Tuesday that he's "working on being the best person I can be."
Scaramucci's comments come a day after he was pushed out from his White House gig. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the move was in order to "give chief of staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team."
    Apparently, Scaramucci's best self does not include dancing -- "The Mooch" shot down a question about whether he plans to participate in the next season of "Dancing with the Stars."
    "I don't know how to dance," Scaramucci told TMZ.
    The show is reportedly eyeing former White House press secretary Sean Spicer as a contestant.
    Dressed in a blue suit, with blue-tinted aviator sunglasses, Scaramucci wished Kelly well, saying, "I want chief of staff Kelly to have an unbelievable opportunity at the White House."
    Scaramucci declined to say whether he had had a chance to say goodbye to President Donald Trump before he left the White House, then he jumped in a black SUV and drove away.
