10 DAYS: Anthony Scaramucci's wild ride in the Trump administration

Only 10 days after he was hired as President Donald Trump’s communications director, Anthony Scaramucci is unexpectedly out of a job.

Even though he was eventually let go at the urging of chief of staff John Kelly, the former communications director managed to cause quite a stir in his brief time at the White House — whether through his expletive-laden rant against White House “leakers” or his $US180 million conflict of interest with a company that has ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

Here is how “The Mooch” spent his short-lived but extremely colourful time as Trump’s chief spokesperson.

Day 2: Fighting 'media bias'

One day after he was hired, Scaramucci resorted to some of the same tactics as his predecessor Spicer -- he gave an interview in which he praised Breitbart for its Trump coverage and slammed other outlets for their 'media bias.'

Immediately after getting hired, Scaramucci deleted many of his old tweets. Not long after, he justified the decision by saying things he wrote and thought before he became communications director were 'a distraction' from his current role promoting Trump's agenda.

Day 5: Bro talk on CNN

In a Sunday CNN 'State of the Union' interview, Scaramucci said that his new press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, should 'continue to use the hair and makeup person.' Even though he later justified his remark by using the hashtag #humour, his words caused one of the first major stirs in Scaramucci's brief time as communications director.

Day 6: Sanders strikes back

On Monday, Sanders struck back at Scaramucci's claims by saying 'he was able to go ahead and get his hair and makeup done.'

Day 7: ''They will all be fired by me'

'They will all be fired by me,' Scaramucci told New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza in an expletive-laden interview that attacked numerous members of Trump's team on July 27. He went on to lash out against 'leakers' after Lizza had tweeted that Scaramucci had had dinner at the White House, which Scaramucci called a leak.

Scaramucci then said that former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus would be 'asked to resign very shortly.'

'I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own c--- ...,' Scaramucci went on to tell Lizza. 'I'm not trying to build my own brand off the f------ strength of the President.'

Day 10: Republicans call for end to chaos

By July 30, Republicans were calling on new chief of staff John Kelly to rein in the chaos in the White House. Part of that chaos included the fallout from Scaramucci's rant to New Yorker's Lizza.
