Ten Tumultuous Days: The Rise And Fall Of Anthony Scaramucci

Ten Tumultuous Days: The Rise And Fall Of Anthony Scaramucci

Anthony Scaramucci's short-lived reign as Donald Trump's director of communications bore striking similarities with another whose remarkable rise was matched only by their fall from grace.

The White House spin doctor's dismissal on Monday meant his tenure at the top outlasted the spectacularly brief reign of Lady Jane Grey as Queen of England, whose name has become a byword for instability.

While she lasted just nine days as queen in 1553 - with an execution to follow the following year - Mr Scaramucci's tumultuous days as the president's official mouthpiece was just long enough to cost him his marriage.

- Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 21, 2017 Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci is appointed the new White House communications director following the resignation of combative press secretary Sean Spicer. In his first televised press conference, he is forced to repeat his apologies to President Trump after being reminded of comments made two years earlier in which he described his new boss as a "hack politician".

Full transparency: I-m deleting old tweets. Past views evolved & shouldn&t be a distraction. I serve @POTUS agenda & that&s all that matters

- Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 22, 2017 As if stung by the previous day's questions about his views, Mr Scaramucci deletes swathes of his comments on Twitter, which included pledging early allegiance to Mr Trump's rival, Hillary Clinton, and expressing support for stronger gun laws - something which jarred with the Republican campaign. "Full transparency," he writes. "Past views evolved & shouldn't be a distraction." He announces that "the politics of ‘gotcha' are over".

For the record, I was referring to my hair and make up and the fact that I like the make up artist. I need all the help I can get! #humor

- Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 23, 2017 His third day in the post is marked by two perceived gaffes. The first is when he backpedals during an interview with CNN when asked about Russian hacking. He is then forced to tweet a clarification on comments he made about colleague Sarah Huckabee Sanders and "hair and make-up". He writes on Twitter: "For the record, I was referring to my hair and make-up and the fact that I like the make-up artist. I need all the help I can get! #humor"

Monday July 24
Mr Trump's preference to communicate with Americans directly through Twitter is adopted by Mr Scaramucci, who reverses the decision to hold daily press briefings off-camera. "The TV cameras are back on," he writes, saying he "talked to the President about it". The on-camera White House briefings ended on June 29.

- Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 26, 2017 A day after accompanying the President to the National Scout Jamboree in West Virginia - at which Mr Trump's political speech infuriates some parents and former Scouts - Mr Scaramucci is in the air again, posting a picture on Twitter on board Air Force One.

Wednesday July 26
Mr Scaramucci appears to accuse White House chief of staff Reince Priebus of leaking personal financial details, calling for the FBI to investigate. His tweet is later deleted and the reports denounced as "wrong!" by Mr Scaramucci. He claims his original comment was "public notice to leakers" within the administration, although commentators state it underlines the fraught relationship between the two men.

Thursday July 27
That relationship - described by Mr Scaramucci as like warring Biblical brothers Cain and Abel - is strained to breaking point when the former financier describes Mr Priebus as a "paranoid schizophrenic". He tells the New Yorker magazine that Mr Priebus "will be asked to resign very shortly", and makes derogatory comments about chief strategist Steve Bannon. As the interview goes live, Mr Scaramucci writes on Twitter that he will "refrain" from using "colourful language". He says he "made a mistake in trusting a reporter", claiming the interview was off-record.

Friday July 28
Family does not need to be drawn into this. Soon we will learn who in the media has class and who doesn-t. No further comments on this.

- Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 29, 2017 Mr Priebus resigns, a week into Mr Scaramucci's role, leaving Mr Trump to appoint retired US Marines general John Kelly as his new White House chief of staff. Details also begin to emerge about Mr Scaramucci's private life, and his three-year marriage to Deidre. Mr Scaramucci, in a series of tweets, says his family "does not need to be drawn into this". He writes: "Leave civilians out of this. I can take the hits, but I would ask that you would put my family in your thoughts and prayers & nothing more."

Saturday July 29
The New York Post's Page Six column announces that Mr Scaramucci's wife has filed for divorce. It is later confirmed that the 38-year-old gave birth to a son on Monday, with a source claiming her husband sent her a text message congratulating her but had not met the baby during his first few days.

Sunday July 30
The calm before the storm. Mr Scaramucci offers a solitary tweet praising the Republican National Committee for "doing fantastic work to support" the president.

Monday July 31
Highest Stock Market EVER, best economic numbers in years, unemployment lowest in 17 years, wages raising, border secure, S.C.: No WH chaos!

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 31, 2017 A great day at the White House!

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 31, 2017 General Kelly officially takes over as new chief of staff and immediately gets to work, ordering Mr Scaramucci out of the White House following the expletive-laden tirade against former colleagues. Earlier, Mr Trump insists there is "no chaos" within the administration and highlights unspecific unemployment figures and economic prosperity as proof. The president ends the day in triumphant mood, tweeting: "A great day at the White House!"
