U.S. President Donald Trump fired White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, the New York Times reported on Monday afternoon. Scaramucci became the White House communications director just a week and a half ago. Over the weekend, it was revealed that Scaramucci harshly attacked the president’s former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist, using foul language.

Shortly after Scaramucci’s statements made headlines, Priebus handed in his resignation. According to sources, Priebus was among the people in Trump’s administration who were against Scaramucci’s appointment and due to these reports, Scaramucci spoke out against him during an interview with the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza. Scaramucci said that he was concerned that Priebus was leaking information against him to media outlets and called the chief of staff “a fucking paranoid schizophrenic.”

Scaramucci then started to talk about Bannon and said that unlike Trump’s chief strategist, he is “here to serve the country.” Scaramucci took to Twitter to defend his remarks: “I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for @realDonaldTrump's agenda.”

Earlier today, JOL reported that Trump denied that the White House is in disarray following the series of significant changes among his staff by tweeting "No WH chaos!" and listing some successes that he attributes to his administration.
