>> But I love the president, and I'm very, very loyal to the president.>> White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci, is out after just 10 days on the job. Rueters White House Correspondent, Steve Holland.>> Well, he'll be remembered for having probably the shortest tenure as Communications Director that has ever been seen since the post was created.
00:00:20
And it'll be long-remembered for that, that one briefing he had where he blew a kiss to the White House Press Corps when he left. I mean let's face it, Saturday Night Live has barely had time to develop a character around him and now he's gone.>> The White House on Monday explaining his sudden departure due in part to a profanity laden phone call he made last week to a reporter for The New Yorker.
00:00:45
In that call he insulted a host of other senior administration officials, including former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and White House strategist Steve Bannon.>> Look, the President certainly felt that Anthony's comments were inappropriate for a person in that position.>> Scaramucci upended the White House when he took the job, press secretary, Sean Spicer, quitting as a result and Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, exiting shortly afterward.

Monday's shake up including a touch of irony in that Scaramucci spoke repeatedly about his desire to fire others in the administration, particularly if he found out they were behind leaks to the press.
