Reactions to Anthony Scaramucci's White House departure

Scaramucci’s exit comes days after Priebus and Spicer left the White House.

Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle took to Twitter to acknowledge the 11-day White House career of the former Wall Street financier.

The White House posted a statement, stressing that Scaramucci “felt it was best to give Kelly a clean slate” and the “ability to build his own team,” wishing him all the best. The statement’s use of the term “clean slate” uses the same language Spicer used during his resignation.

Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo of Florida praised the decision, which comes just hours into Kelly’s tenure.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., subtly jabbed Scaramucci about his time at the White House, stressing “a grateful nation” would say “has it really only been 11 days?!?”


Democratic Representative Ted Lieu of California used the resignation to point fingers at the president’s son-in-law, who is thought to be a driving influence behind Scaramucci’s hiring.
