The Federalist published David Marcus’s piece earlier this afternoon.
When President Trump hired Anthony Scaramucci as his communications director, he was sending a very clear message about the future of his administration. When a week later he leaned into the mic and told Reince Priebus, “You’re fired,” he doubled down on that message. In short, the president is saying: I got elected doing things my way and ignoring you GOP blowhards, and that isn’t going to change.
In the long run, that decision will be good for Trump and for the American people. The reason everyone from Pennsylvania Avenue to Main Street should celebrate this move is that it finally puts the cards on the table. Throughout the campaign and even after it, we had GOP officials predicting that Trump could be guided, molded into a responsible Republican president. It has never been true, and we are all better off for finally realizing it.
