Well, that escalated quickly. According to a Monday afternoon report from The New York Times, Donald Trump has removed Anthony Scaramucci from his job as communications director following a hectic week for the new member of the administration. Scaramucci was much talked — and joked — about during his short stint, so it's no surprise that his departure kept the conversation going. And one of the most popular jokes about Scaramucci's firing has to do with How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days.
That's right. Scaramucci was only communications director for 10 days as he was announced to be taking on the position on July 21. His time with the administration was incredibly dramatic, especially considering its length.
Most notably, a profanity-filled conversation between Scaramucci and New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza was published in which Scaramucci threatened to fire the entire White House communications staff and called now-former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus a "a f*cking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac." Soon after the conversation was published, Scaramucci wrote on Twitter, "I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for @realDonaldTrump's agenda. #MAGA" and "I made a mistake in trusting in a reporter. It won't happen again."
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement:
"Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director. Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best."
Now that Scaramucci is no longer communications director, many people who both follow politics and love a good pop culture reference are really latching on to the 10 days thing and relating The Mooch to one of the most beloved rom-coms of the early '00s.
