Newly installed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is out of his West Wing job, just 10 days after he was appointed. His departure comes just a few days after he delivered an obscenity-laden tirade against members of the president's senior staff to New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza.

According to a White House statement, "Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team."

The White House added, "We wish him all the best."
