Last weekend, we asked our mobile audience if White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci should be fired for his comments about his colleagues.
Out of more than 170,000 votes, 92.2% said Scaramucci should be fired, while 7.8% said he should not. On Monday the White House announced Scarammuci was out.
A White House official said John Kelly wanted Scaramucci removed from his new role as the communications director because he did not think he was disciplined and had burned his credibility.
The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza published a piece Thursday night detailing a phone conversation he had with Scaramucci in which the communications director described White House chief of staff Reince Priebus as a “paranoid schizophrenic.”
Miller brushed aside the reference, noting that it was added after the monument was erected. You can watch their full exchange here.
