Trolling the entire universe in just seven words, Donald Trump's first tweet after the firing of Anthony Scaramucci simply celebrated the "great day." Yes, truly. Posted at 6:19 p.m. Eastern Time, it merely read, "A great day at the White House!"
No mention of Scaramucci. None of new Chief of Staff John Kelly, reportedly the catalyst behind Scaramucci's ouster. Not even a jab at the media — everyone knows he loves to hate on the media, especially when it intensively covers the ins and outs of the White House. It was just a great day for Donald J. Trump (which made many internet denizens wonder what the heck a bad day looks like).
Because to the rest of the country, Monday seemed like absolute chaos. Ignoring the fact that Trump has failed repeatedly on his travel ban, the Wall, and health care, just looking at the senior staff of the White House has seemed absurd.
In the past couple of weeks, Trump lost his press secretary, Sean Spicer, because he hired Scaramucci. Then Reince Priebus was out as chief of staff, replaced by Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly. Then on Monday, a few days after it was made public that Scaramucci called Priebus a "f*cking paranoid schizophrenic" and said, "I'm not Steve Bannon. I'm not trying to suck my own cock," Scaramucci got the boot because of Kelly.
What a tangled web the White House weaves.
Of course, because of all of this, Twitter wasn't going to let Trump get away with pretending like it was just another day at the office. Their responses to the tweet ripped into him.

It might have been a great day for Trump, and a great day for Twitter, but for the real world, people are really pretty concerned.
