As soon as news broke that Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci was out as White House communications director a mere 10 days after being hired, the rumor mill began churning as to why, exactly, he was fired.
In a segment on MSNBC, host Stephanie Ruhle, who spoke with Scaramucci the previous night and reported that he did not expect the firing, laid out some fascinating theories about why new Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly may have moved to fire The Mooch — and said that Ivanka Trump may have helped make the decision.
“Someone like Ivanka, is she really going to hang her hat in her newly-renovated all-white office next to somebody who had a call like the one he did with a reporter last Thursday?” Ruhle said, citing Scaramucci’s expletive-laden call with a New Yorker reporter from a few days ago. “The stars just don’t seem to align for Anthony.”
Listen to Ruhle, who spoke with MSNBC over the phone, explain how Ivanka may have helped make the decision to fire Scaramucci below.
