I have NEVER started an “Obsession” post a week before its publication date.
But the hits just keep on coming. So – it’s bonus “Obsession” time.

07.31.17 Anthony Scaramucci RESIGNS as White House Communications Director Comes less than a week after hiring
JULY 31, 2017 Washington, DC (ABC/WBEN) Anthony Scaramucci resigns as White House Communications Director.
This comes the same day John Kelly was sworn in as Chief of Staff. Sources tell ABC Scaramucci resigned, asking to be redeployed at the Export Import Bank as chief strategy officer.
Scaramucci had not been on the job less than a week. It may be most memorable for an expletive-laden conversation with a New Yorker reporter that disparaged other members of the Trump team.

WASHINGTON — President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, three people close to the decision said Monday, relieving him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff.
The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge.
Well, WHICH IS IT?? Did the mooch resign, was he fired by Kelly, or was he shitcanned by The Darnold?
This news hit Freeperville like a string of firecrackers being tossed into an Open Carry demonstration.
Click the linky thingy for the fireworks.
Well that didn’t take long…..

Kelly gets the job on 7/28 and makes this major move 3 days later. Its like lord of the flies over there.

Wait for it…..
Well, kind of like Lord of the Flies, except they aren’t as mature.
Moderators are deleting comments left and right, and would I ever love to see those deleted comments !
A few Freeperati try to rally the troops by putting an extra coat of lip gloss on this pig :
It was a bold strategy from the Trump – bring in the Mooch to smoke out the traitors and Fire Reince.
He completed it in 10 days and leaves with his job completed and head held high

Scaramucci was a loose cannon. Kelly is imposing Marine discipline and Scaramucci would never survive

Maybe Kelly will fire The Darnold next?
Ugh. Stupid Kelly. I am telling you that this is a huge mistake. Scaramucci has been a godsend for the White House. Oh well I guess they will just fall all over themselves letting the press win. No fighters but trump now.

One Freeper has some practical advice for the next eight or ten WH staffer wannabes :
So if you take a job in the Trump White House get a guaranteed contract so you get paid no matter what, and pre-sign that book deal cash up front.

Isn’t that cute? He thinks The Darnold actually pays his contractors.
The firings will continue until performance improves.

Maybe the “fake news” ain’t so fake after all.
I’ve heard and read of major problems in the admin, didn’t believe them. Until today, that is.

One Freeper is getting a clue :
Is there anything positive going on in the White House?
Are regulations being removed?
Just the ones that protect us.
Are Federal agencies being cut?
I hear there’s an entirely new agency being created just to find new jobs for fired WH staffers, so there’s that.
Are taxes being cut?
Just The Darnold’s.
Is Obamacare being eliminated?
You don’t get out much, do you?
Is the military being strengthened?
If by “strengthened” you mean “forced to take planes and tanks they don’t want or need”, definitely.
Who recommended these characters for WH positions?
That would be The Darnold.
This chaos is seriously
disturbing entertaining !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then, the Freepers start getting silly :
Maybe he didn’t have a pre-nup.

Right move, he was not ready for prime time. Get him out before anyone notices.

Although I loved his no BS approach, he was a bit raunchy.
There’s enough of that with Trump himself, he doesn’t need a mini-me.
It just goes on and on and on and on.
After this, I think I need to take a week off.
Ya’ll play nice in the sandbox, you hear?
