Anthony Scaramucci Cancels Friday Online Press Event

Anthony Scaramucci has called off the online press event he had scheduled for Friday to “focus on family” and his “work in the private sector.”

“No Press Event Tomorrow: Focusing on Family, My Work in The Private Sector. #MovingForward Stay Tuned!,” Scaramaucci tweeted on Thursday morning.

The former White House communications director had planned to host the event to address the public directly after his abrupt departure from the White House, which occurred just 11 days after he was announced for the job. Tomorrow’s event was supposed to be broadcast on various live platforms with help from former Fox News co-president Bill Shine, who is reportedly being courted for a position on Trump’s communications team.

Scaramucci’s wife, Deidre Ball, reportedly filed for divorce while pregnant with the couple’s second child, whose birth he missed during his brief White House tenure.

Scaramucci’s removal is said to have come at the request of Trump’s new chief of staff, Gen. John F. Kelly, who started his new job on Monday, replacing Reince Priebus — the latest major shakeup in the Trump administration. Scaramucci’s own appointment reportedly led to the press secretary Sean Spicer’s resignation.

Scaramucci was axed days after giving a vulgar interview to The New Yorker in which he took aim at Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon and then-White House chief of staff Priebus.
