The End of an Era: Scaramucci Fired as Communications Director

July 31st, 2017: the date of the utmost importance, when history was actuated in the execution of a single event, the date that will forever be etched in the American subconscious as the day it all began to truly go downhill, and to really mean something. It was the day that the best continuous moment in all the history of American politics came to a screeching, unjustified, and totally-unnecessary halt.
It was the day the ten-day tenure of now-former white house communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, was ended.
I say 'continuous moment' because while it was indeed a ten-day long event, through the eyes of future history, it is only a tiny blip in an era filled with blips far bigger; though in EVERY case, not nearly as entertaining or fully metaphorically representative of the general situation of the time and the case it was most involved in.
What will we do when we no longer have Scaramucci to remind us of how AWESOME politics can be? What will we do when politics once again becomes nothing but a mere polarization of facts versus feelings, as if the universe could run only on one of those things? It was through Scaramucci that every side came together to understand that laughs and politics can be intertwined, so long as we keep our heads on, and decide to leave it to the dumbasses to tell us what 'stupid' is, and 'what stupid does'. What will we do when we no longer adhere to the importance of holding entertainment and learning in equal regards, like rest is to exercise? Or when that in-time realization is but a tiny cock on the body of the past? There are certain limitations of the human body, as Scaramucci has only been the most recent reminder of, as he also has been of the fact that Trump himself has reminded us of this all-too-well-known piece of 'evidence' as well (small hands mean... smart?).
There is a possibility that Scaramucci's firing coming almost simultaneously with the hiring of John Kelly as Trump's new chief of staff, who was reportedly the reason for Scaramucci's firing, means the Trump administration may be turning over a new leaf, but only time will tell in the end on that one. What is for sure right now is that Trump seems to have possibly gotten someone who actually knows how to make a politician not look like the idiot she/he truly is, rather than the actual representation which, for example, Scaramucci represented for Trump. Kelly has a military background and served as Trump's secretary of homeland security since Trump was inaugurated, so my comment about Kelly changing the narrative of Trump being an idiot in real life is only minimally backed by evidence, at best. This is hindered only on countenance alone, however. Trump tries hard to say that he's different, he's not. He's a politician just the rest of them, for whom doing good for people is only a good idea because of the rewards it invites for the one 'doing good' (so: all of us?). If only there were a term, for this idea (manipulating other people, and their situations, for personal gain)...
R.I.P. Mr. Scaramucci (or: the idea that Trump actually might have a decently sized member?). You may well be missed or not missed, but you will certainly be forgotten.
