Scaramucci fired from White House communications director
Anthony Scaramucci who emulated U.S. President Donald Trump’s style that made colleagues call him Trump’s “Mini Me” had been criticized for causing the White House power struggle. The former economic advisor for Trump’s camp called Reince Priebus, Trump’s former chief of staff, a “f**ing paranoid” schizophrenic for not wanting him in the White House. He also criticized Steve Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist, with vulgar words. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee said that the president certainly felt that Anthony's comments were inappropriate for someone in that position,”

Scaramucci’s family was not peaceful, either. Local media reported on Saturday that his wife finally filed for divorce early July as she could not stand his explicit political ambitions and blind loyalty to President Trump. He drew public criticism as he texted his wife, “Congratulations, I’ll pray for our child,” when his son was admitted to a neonatal intensive care on July 24. On the same day, he posted his photo with President Trump on Air Force One. The high-flying Wall Street financier lost his job after 10 days in the White House.
