Retired Marine Corps General and former Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, John Kelly, has replaced Reince Priebus as White House Chief of Staff.

In an attempt to establish himself, Kelly has reportedly fired White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci. The former hedge fund manager was scheduled to announce a communications team when he was instead escorted from the White House.  It is unclear at this time whether Scaramucci resigned from his job or was fired.

Scaramucci’s departure has come as a consequence of a disastrous New Yorker interview in which Scaramucci referred to Reince Priebus as a “f***ing paranoid schizophrenic” and Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon as a man “trying to suck his own c***.” Comments which have been deemed as inappropriate by White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Kelly’s appointment has largely been seen as a positive change by many in the White House and the Republican Party. President Trump issued a statement saying:

“He will do a spectacular job, I have no doubt, as chief of staff. What he’s done, in terms of homeland security, is record shattering. You look at the border, you look at the tremendous results we’ve had and you look at the spirit. And with a very controversial situation, there has been very little  controversy which is pretty amazing by itself.”

One White House aide commented that Kelly, who has a reputation as a straight shooter, had already begun “changing the culture” of the White House.
