Let bygones be bygones is the impression Anthony Scaramucci gave soon after his abrupt White House ouster.
Eyebrows raised across social media when pictures showing the Mooch dining at Trump Hotel in D.C. emerged Monday night.
The visit to his former boss’s establishment came just hours after he was axed from his 10-day stint as White House communications director. Scaramucci’s removal reportedly came at the request of newly minted Chief of Staff Gen. Kelly.
Scaramucci created a media firestorm over a profanity-laced interview targeting former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and current White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. Priebus, who was suspected by some to be a source of White House leaks, resigned as a result of the turmoil.
This made Scaramucci’s dinner company all the more interesting for many on social media.
Along with a few admin employees, Scaramucci’s most notable dining partner was former Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson, the Daily Mail reported.

The group was seated at a “discreet table” in under a planted tree in the BLT restaurant of the Trump Hotel. Scaramucci “barely touched his food” and refused to talk to Daily Mail reporters who touted the find. To add insult to Mooch’s injury, President Trump notably tweeted “A great day at the White House!” Monday evening after a presumable tumultuous 24 hours.
Pierson, however, sung Scaramucci’s praises earlier in the day, with a tweet proclaiming he had stopped leaks about his own ouster.
FWIW: @Scaramucci was fired at 8am but the press found out when the WH shop released it in the afternoon. Apparently, he stopped the leaks.

Pierson elicited a lot of support for her tweet from those who thought Scaramucci was brought in for the purpose of getting rid of Priebus and other possible leakers.
Yep Reince is gone

in the corporate world we call him the axman: One assigned to perform a task involving ruthless reduction, as of a work force or budget.

Not bad for 10 days of work!

Speculation over whether or not President Trump would “approve” of the dinner is being bantered about, but it’s safe to assume that the pair are close allies.
Meahwhile, another shot of Scaramucci at Trump Hotel had libs gloating over his supposed demise.

Considering the impact Scaramucci made in little over a week at the White House, it’s too soon to count him down for the count.
