Homeland security secretary replaces Priebus at White House

Homeland security secretary replaces Priebus at White House

A side-by-side video compiled by United States political satire programme The Daily Show portrays Scaramucci, nicknamed The Mooch, using several Trump-ish hand gestures during his first press briefing last week. "Let me tell you something about myself - I am a straight shooter, and I'll go right to the heart of the matter".

The embattled former chief of staff had faced pressure since being named as a possible leaker by Mr Trump's newly appointed director of communication. He also used a graphic sexual reference to make the point that he believes White House chief strategist Steve Bannon used Trump's election win to burnish his own reputation.

The last time this happened everyone decided that maybe the word could sneak into the lexicon and hang out with kids disguised as a pink hat, and I would like to get out in front of this one saying NO HATS, PLEASE.

"The president's management style seems to be to encourage factionalism among people below him. So I'm asking you as an American patriot to give me a sense of who leaked it". Scaramucci, convinced that Preibus leaked to Lizza, declared "Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac". By the end of his fifth day, he was on the receiving end of what he called a leak about himself.

"I think Scaramucci's full of himself", Gingrich responded.

He claimed the chief of staff committed a felony by leaking information about the new communication director's financial disclosure report to news website Politico.

Scaramucci tweeted, then deleted, on Wednesday night what read like an accusation that Priebus had been behind "the leak of my financial disclosure info".

Scaramucci's wide-ranging interview touched on subjects ranging from Trump's private dinner conversations to the probes and whether Trump would veto congressional efforts to add new sanctions on Russian Federation.

Priebus told The Associated Press last week that he supports Scaramucci "100 percent", despite reportedly trying to prevent Scaramucci from getting an administration position.

On-the-job humiliation is often part of the deal in Trump's White House, as Priebus well knows. It was released after a public records request by a Politico reporter. He pointed to the Joint Chiefs of Staff's rejection of President Donald Trump's announcement that trans men and women will be banned from serving in the armed forces. Scaramucci on Wednesday night wrote in a now-deleted cryptic tweet that the "leak" of his financial disclosure form is a "felony", adding that he would be contacting the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice. DOJ spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said in a statement, "We have seen an astonishing increase in the number of leaks of classified national security information in recent months". Gerstman has done projects for the Trump Organization and is a neighbor and longtime friend of Scaramucci's.

But another rule of thumb in Trump's inner circle is that it's never wise to outshine the president.

"They don't take away the certificate of divestiture because you thought about selling before", Painter said.
