This Image of Reince Priebus and Anthony Scaramucci Is Going Viral for Obvious Reasons

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but for this snapshot of Reince Priebus and Anthony Scaramucci, a thousand might not be enough.
Ever since he became White House Communications Director, there have been rumors about how Anthony Scaramucci and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus really don’t like each other. Scaramucci gave these rumors a lot more weight today when he spoke to CNN about how he apparently accused Priebus of being a Trump Administration leaker.
Scaramucci’s interview was quite extensive, but he especially drew interest for comparing his relationship with Priebus to the relationship of Cain and Abel.
When Wall Street Journal ran an article about the Priebus-Scaramucci dynamic today, it featured a photograph of two from when they recently joined Trump in the Oval Office. Scaramucci and Priebus were sitting on the same couch that day, and WSJ photographer T.J. Kirkpatrick captured the scene after the two men stood up.
A lot of people think the photo says a lot about the current White House environment:
