Key Words: Anthony Scaramucci says White House’s turnover rate is typical of a startup

‘The president is an entrepreneur, and this kind of turnover is common in early-stage startups.’

That’s Anthony Scaramucci, the Wall Street guy and briefly last summer the communications director for the Trump White House, seeking either to contextualize or normalize in a Wall Street Journal interview the rate of firings and other departures from the executive branch under President Donald Trump.

If communications director Hope Hicks, who left the White House this week, is replaced (and there reportedly are Trump allies counseling the president he could act as his own communications director and perhaps his own chief of staff, too, were John Kelly to be shown the door), the next person to take up that post would be — depending on the metric employed — the fourth, fifth or sixth incumbent. Along with Hicks, other recent administration departures include Veteran Affairs Secretary David Shulkin, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and presidential secretary Rob Porter. Shulkin and Tillerson reportedly learned of their sackings via Twitter.

Trump was inaugurated 435 days ago.
