Anthony Scaramucci's incredibly short and extremely memorable time at the White House

It took Anthony Scaramucci 11 days to become the 10th member of the Trump administration's alumni club. Immediately rubbing West Wing officials the wrong way, Anthony Scaramucci stepped down Monday as White House communications director. Let's take a look back at his years days on the job:
Scaramucci calls then-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus a "paranoid schizophrenic" in expletive-filled rant to a reporter
Scaramucci threatens to call the FBI on "senior leakers" at the White House
"Full transparency:" Scarammuci says he's deleting old tweets
Scaramucci blows the press a smooch
It's on: Scaramucci vs. Priebus goes public
And just for perspective, here are three short-lived events that lasted longer than Scaramucci's 11-day tenure:
Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kris Humphries (72 days)
The Chile miners trapped underground (successfully rescued after 69 days)
Michael Flynn, President Trump's former national security adviser (24 days)
