Anthony Scaramucci‘s ouster from Trump Administration might have been a messy affair for the White House, based on a report from CNN’s Jeff Zelany about the now-former Communications Director’s was led away from the president’s mansion.
Zeleny was on with Brooke Baldwin to discuss the reports saying Chief of Staff John Kelly removed Scaramucci from his post over his lack of “discipline.” During his report, Zeleny said Scaramucci was “essentially escorted off the White House property earlier this afternoon.”
“We are told by our producers, our team, that he was escorted off. That’s not necessarily unusual. If someone is no longer working here, he has no reason to be here. We are told he was escorted off the property earlier this afternoon. The question is what happens next?”
Zeleny continued to focus on how Kelly was not impressed with Scaramucci’s conduct from when he went off the rails during a conversation last week with The New Yorker‘s Ryan Lizza.
Zeleny’s reporting was corroborated by CBS’s Jackie Alemany:
