Is the Mooch heading back to the White House?

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci was fired after a mere 10 days in office, but he is reportedly telling friends the 11th day may be coming soon.

The Daily Beast cites three unnamed sources "close to" the Mooch who independently indicated Scaramucci often talks about his ties to President Trump. Scaramucci reportedly says he speaks with Trump regularly — which was certainly the impression the Mooch strived to give in a Sunday appearance on CNN — and that the president's daughter and senior adviser, Ivanka Trump, wants to bring him back to the administration.

As the Daily Beast story notes, Scaramucci's testimony is the only evidence that exists of his possible return. White House aides contacted for comment said they thought a return of the Mooch seems very unlikely, as did several of Scaramucci's own friends. Reports from the time of the firing suggest Ivanka probably does not want Scaramucci back and that the president did not like it when the Mooch's theatrics upstaged his own.
