“Reince is a f–king paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,”
Scaramucci said in the profanity-laced interview that was published on
By Friday, Preibus, a former chair of the Republican National Committee, was out as chief of staff, and Trump named John Kelly, his Homeland Security director, as his replacement.
