If you think your life is chaotic, just take a look at what is going on in Washington, D.C.

Just this week, new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci was ousted after 11 days in office. That's right, only 11 days.

Former Gen. John Kelly, who was appointed President Donald Trump's new chief of staff, fired the communications director Monday.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the president thought it was the right time for Scaramucci to be dismissed.

"The president certainly felt that Anthony’s comments were inappropriate for a person in that position," Sanders said, according to The New York Times. "He didn’t want to burden General Kelly, also, with that line of succession."

This announcement came days after Scaramucci had said some vulgar things about other members of the president's staff, including chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon and former chief of staff Reince Priebus.

Trump insisted on Twitter after the event that there is no chaos going on in the White House and everything is under control.
