Scaramucci dead: Harvard Law School apologises for alumni directory error

FORMER White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci just had a really tough week; the Oval Office fired him from his new job in just 10 days, his wife filed for divorce, and now he's been erroneously reported dead by Harvard University. Apparently, even President Trump has his limits when it comes to obscenity-laced rants denigrating one's colleagues. The White House announced that John Kelly, 67, a retired marine general, has taken over as the new White House chief of staff, replacing Reince Priebus who was sacked after continued feud among the senior White House staffers came out in the open. Firing The Mooch also sent a clear message to all that the days of publicly trash-talking co-workers were over.

"I want chief of staff Kelly to have an unbelievable opportunity inside the White House", Scaramucci added to TMZ.

The former White House staffer's call was then followed by a tweet from Lizza regarding information leaked by a "senior White House official".

His successor, a Marine general widely respected among his peers, has succeeded as secretary of homeland security in cracking down on illegal immigration, making it one of the administration's more effective parts.

Kelly was on a U.S. Coast Guard jet heading toward Washington's Reagan National Airport on Friday morning when Mr. Trump made the announcement, which quickly went viral on Twitter. "I think he had the president's interests at heart, and he wanted him to succeed, but you can't learn to be a manager of a complex organization, how to hire and fire people and develop strategy, in a matter of months". After that they were stuck with him, and he did win the White House for them, so they have been in an uncomfortable partnership ever since.

He came and went fast enough to give many people whiplash.

For the press that has covered the White House for years, the Trump administration has been a big adjustment. Lizza said he talked to Scaramucci before they published, explaining that it was newsworthy because he was the White House communications director, which Scaramucci said he understood. Unless the president accepts that he must focus, there's only so much good a new chief of staff can do.

When asked at a news conference last week about Sessions' future, Trump replied: "Time will tell".

As United States President Donald Trump seeks to rebuild credibility after one of the most damaging weeks in his chaotic presidency, a former adviser says the White House just needs a "strong coach".
