President Donald Trump announced the hiring of a new White House chief of staff -- and social media users were somehow still shocked by the seemingly inevitable ouster of Reince Priebus.


Priebus resigned after six months and one week on the job, but he's been rumored to be on the outs almost from the moment he was chosen over Steve Bannon.

Incoming communications director Anthony Scaramucci quickly gathered a lot of power in the first week since he was hired, and he began undertaking many of the duties typically overseen by the chief of staff and reported directly to the president.

He singled out Priebus by name and accused him of possibly illegal leaks to the media, and the chief of staff finally followed his White House ally Sean Spicer out the door.

Twitter users reacted in hilarious shock to the nearly foregone conclusion.
