You're fired! The rise and fall of Anthony Scaramucci

He was sacked as president Donald Trump's communications director - and listed as dead in Harvard Law School's alumni directory.

Reports of Anthony Scaramucci's demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Next to his name, there was reportedly an asterisk indicating he had died since the previous release back in 2011.

The alumni directory was delivered to Harvard Law School graduates, coincidentally, at the same time that the Trump's now former communications director was shaking things up in the White House. Mr Scaramucci had been in the job just over a week.

One of his classmates said he was well-liked and a "big personality" at Harvard Law School. "The error will be corrected in subsequent editions".

Adult entertainment website CamSoda, an X-rated video chat site, contacted Scaramucci via email offering a job as the companies Director of Communications.

Alumni of the Ivy League law school in Cambridge, Massachusetts receive the directory, which is being published every five years.

Scaramucci's exit followed mere days after former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was allegedly fired from his role and only a few weeks after Sean Spicer left the position of White House communications director. Chief of Staff Reince Priebus has previously resigned, and Kelly filled the role. Scaramucci's 10 days were colorful (to put it mildly), with the tipping point possibly coming in the form of a profanity-laden interview with The New Yorker.

Scaramucci, a former NY financier and major Republican donor, accepted the communications director position and started the role on Friday, July 21.
