Scaramucci's Out! Here's A List Of All The People Trump Has Fired In Case You're Playing Trump BINGO

Did Trump Fire Scaramucci? Here's A List Of The People Trump Has Fired So Far

Who's next?

We thought the days of Donald Trump yelling, “YOU’RE FIRED” would end once he gave up his job as reality star to become President of the United States.

We, apparently, were wrong.

The most recent casualty of Trump’s (hmm, how do we put this…) interesting presidency, is *former* Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci. Which means 192 days into Trump’s administration, between termination and resignation he’s already lost 15 staff members. Of course, it’s far from the first time a president fired someone. Trump just happens to be flying through staff members at record speed.

It’s a lot to keep up with, yet has made the goings on in Washington sort of… fun (as fun as watching an entire country fall apart piece by piece can be). If you’re not really sure whether you should laugh or cry, try playing some Trump Bingo while you do both — just laminate it so your tears don’t stain this important piece of American history.

And, of course, a list of the most memorable people Trump has already fired… may their (fragile) sanity rest in peace.

 

Anthony Scaramucci, Communications Director (10 days)

The Mooch only served under Trump for ten days yet managed to cause possibly the biggest ruckus. After only a few days in office, Scaramucci reportedly called the New Yorker and went on a profane rant in which he called former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus a “paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac” among other jaw-dropping things (read the article, seriously. You won’t be sorry). According to the NY Times, Scaramucci was “removed” from his position at the request of Trump Chief of Staff, John F. Kelly.

Sally Yates, Acting Attorney General (11 days)

Trump fired Yates just a few days into his official role as President for “betraying” the Department of Justice when she refused to back Trump’s controversial travel ban. According to the New Yorker, Yates learned of her dismissal via a letter that said, “I’m informing you that the president has removed you from the office of deputy attorney general of the United States.”

 

Mike Flynn, National Security Advisor (23 days)

Because this is now Trump’s America, it’s almost impossible to discuss any of the White House’s actions without also referencing Russia — something Flynn knows all too well. During the FBI’s probe into whether or not Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia for the presidential win, Flynn resigned with a letter explaining that he had “inadvertently briefed the vice president-elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian ambassador.”

 

James Comey, FBI Director (110 days)

Comey and Trump’s relationship was tumultuous even before Trump stepped into the Oval Office, starting with Comey’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails during the 2016 presidential campaign. Comey’s investigations didn’t stop there, which, you know, is expected considering he was the director of the bureau of investigation. Things came to a head when Comey asked for more resources to look into the whole Russia thing.

 

Sean Spicer, White House Press Secretary (183 days)

Perhaps the thing we’ll miss most about Spicer’s time in the White House is Melissa McCarthy’s Saturday Night Live portrayal of him. During his short run as press secretary, Spicer offered up lots of comedic gold (like that time he hid from reporters in the bushes or defended Trump’s insane ‘covfefe’ tweet). According to the NY Times, Spicer resigned after Trump appointed The Mooch as White House Communications Director. And to think, if Spicey had only stuck around 10 more days...

 

 

Reince Priebus, Chief of Staff (189 days)

Unfortunately, Trump fired Priebus before we even learned how to pronounce his name. What’s worse, it seems like he might’ve been ousted via… Twitter. So professional. While it seemed like quite a surprise, The Atlantic noted in February that Priebus’ time as Trump right-hand man was likely short due to loyalty issues (real or imagined) in the White House.
