Having realized his mistake, Trump firing Scaramucci signals that he is taking control of the White House again to clean things up, infers Michael Goodwin of the New York Post. Brining in John Kelly was a highly intelligent decision that perfectly counters the controversy that has spread recently. The ex-Navy general will balance out Trump’s bombastic character with a more sober approach to politics, cleaning up after Scaramucci’s poorly thought-out actions. Kelly stands out from past presidential appointees, with his no-nonsense demeanor. Trump is showing increased self-awareness in bringing in the right person for the job.
Trump having hired and fired Scaramucci within the span of 10 days is reflective of the chaotic way he has been running the White House since his inauguration, suggests Michelle Babicz of Chicago Now. Slowly but surely he is undoing the presidential stoicism that his predecessors established. The fact that Scaramucci was even hired backfired immensely. His vulgar and provocative tirades were absolutely unheard of for a communications director. But he wasn’t far off from the president’s own posturing and insulting rhetoric. The introduction and firing of Scaramucci wasn’t much out of character for a growingly turbulent White House.
