"The Mooch" is out -- and Donald Trump's White House resembles the "Hunger Games" more and more every day.

Ten days after being announced as the new White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci was unceremoniously dismissed.

According to The New York Times, President Trump’s new chief of staff, John Kelly, made the decision to oust the irascible businessman following a foul-mouthed call to a New Yorker reporter last week.

Of course, Twitter had a field day with the news. The mockery of the man known as the "mooch" was swift from members of the media and entertainment:

Actress Kate Hudson even got in on the gag over on Instagram:

Box office results are in! The #1 comedy in America!
