Scaramucc(i), Scaramucc(i), Will You Do the Fandango?

White House press secretary Sean Spicer resigned on Friday following his opposition to President* Donald Trump’s expected appointment of Anthony Scaramucci, a Wall Street financier, to be the new White House communications director, according to multiple White House officials.
Right. A guy who has no experience in neither press relations nor government and he's going to do that job.

So why did Trump pick him? Apparently, it's going to basically be something between a no-show job and a payoff:
A source close to the White House press operation said there are serious doubts among some aides that Scaramucci will be able to handle the full scope of the job. “The challenge really here is that Scaramucci was being given a ceremonial title as communications director with absolutely no understanding of what that position means and with no understanding of how government works. So it’s really more of a joke that he’s being offered this position."

The source added, “Trump simply wants a high level White House surrogate on television and wanted Mooch to have something nice to do.”
So Mooch is mooching, having succeeded, finally, at getting on board the Trump White House. Mooch has a track record of supporting whichever horse is out in front. He's supported Obama, Scott Walker, ¡JEB! and now Trump. He does have some TV experience, considering that he bought the rights to a TV show so that he could be on it.

Yeah, this is going to work out.

Sounds like Mr. Scaramucci was not born with the gift of laughter or a sense that the world was mad. And not really qualified. Sounds perfect for the Administration.

Probably doesn't even know what the fandango is. (I think those are all the cheap references to be made.)

Boy, he sure loves him some Trump, though.
