Scaramucci was reportedly hired directly by President Donald Trump to the objections of White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.
ABC News’ Jonathan Karl said on Twitter that when he went to ask Spicer about Scaramucci’s hiring he slammed the door in the reporter’s face.

Congratulations Sean Spicer. You’ve got more guts than Jeff Sessions!

Other’s that support the president are happy for Spicer, while buzz and speculation ran rampant:
Sean Spicer had a great effort, but came from the old GOP school & assumed a good faith press
Scaramucci knows how to create news cycles

I'm more surprised @seanspicer held out this long. You had the worst job in the world. Respect for doing a job nobody wanted.
