Scaramucci and the Trump B-team plot "revenge" with Kelly faltering

Three of those sources, one a White House official and the others close Trump allies, told The Daily Beast that Scaramucci received phone calls from President Trump in January, just as the former comms chief began going on TV to bash former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon for the scorched-earth interview he gave for Michael Wolff’s book on the Trump White House. (Bannon and Scaramucci, for their part, had previously feuded.)…

The dialogue continued from there. A source with knowledge of the exchange said Scaramucci told the president that he would be sending his tweets critical of Kelly. After they touched base, Scaramucci put out his social media missive calling for the chief of staff’s ouster. One West Wing official simply dubbed this saga, “The Mooch’s revenge.”…

“Maybe Trump would like Kelly staying around because he is so weakened and you won’t have any more of these stories that Kelly is the strong man, holding the entire thing together, saving the world from Donald Trump,” Daley added. “There won’t be any more of those stories. So, who knows. Maybe Trump would like the diminished Kelly.”
