Every Monday I wake up with the rest of the United States and say to myself, “I really don’t think the country’s week can be any more insane than it was last week,” and by about Monday afternoon or Tuesday, latest, I am shaming myself for being so foolish.
Here we are again.
New White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci resigned on Monday barely a week after he took the job and a few weeks before his official start date. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigned because of this dude. This guy came on staff and immediately started throwing verbal haymakers in the direction of former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Trump adviser Steve Bannon.
The Mooch technically hadn’t even started yet.

You blazed across our skies like a comet, but you flew too close to the sun, dear Mooch.

After I file this story I’m gonna go buy some shovels and get to work on this bunker I’m building at an undisclosed location. It’ll have a lot of food. Haha. El oh el.
For now, I leave you with the words of The Mooch, four years ago:
