By hiring Scaramucci Trump is getting a communication director who is competent, calm under pressure and highly loyal towards the president, reports Zeke J Miller of Time. His smooth attitude already showed an ability to deal with tough questions much better than Sean Spicer. Having this sort of charisma representing him in front of the media will serve the president well. Additionally Scaramucci’s loyalty to Trump, which he stressed many times during his first press conference, makes him a precious ally to have. Most importantly, he will be able to portray the White House in a more positive light.
Trump bringing in Scaramucci reflects that he is losing trust in his White House inner circle while becoming growingly erratic as the backlash against him strengthens, writes T.A. Frank of Vanity Fair. This exposes a rift between Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner and the president’s other staffers, most notably Sean Spicer who resigned in protest. The media is challenging Trump every day as allegations about Russia pile up. He is feeling the heat and hired to Scaramucci, not based on competence or experience, but loyalty. Choosing him was an uncalculated move away from presidential norms by Trump.
