    My guess is that he'll be more bullet-proof than Spicer. He won't get flustered and avoidant. I think it's important to remember that he doesn't really speak for himself, he channels the White House. That may be more difficult with Trump as the President but the Press Secretary shouldn't take it personally if he has to deliver a specific message or answer questions on a difficult topic. He'll be OK.

    I thought so too. I based that (wrongly) on his tough-guy sound - liberal use of profanity. But - Spicer 6 months, Scaramucci - only 10 days. Who's next? Who wants to be?

    Maybe The Mooch can get an acting role - in a remake / spinoff of The Sopranos. He's got the dialogue down pat!

    I have things in my fridge that lasted longer than Scaramucci's tenure at the White House. Part of leadership is knowing who to hire, and this is just another nail in the coffin of the idea that Trump is some sort of leadership genius.

    Amen to that. Farewell, Mooch; we'll never know whether you could do the fandango.

    This turns out to be the best entertainment the President provided so far. And eclipsing Spicer is quite a feat.
