General John Kelly sworn is as White House Chief of Staff as Donald Trump aims to overcome legislative setbacks

On Friday, Scaramucci shared a cartoon published by the Minnesota newspaper, the Star Tribune, a cartoonist expresses his frustration with the White House administration's rapid firings after learning that "the Mooch" is out.

The main role of the president's Chief of Staff, as the highest-ranking employee inside the White House, is to oversee and manage other White House officials, screen information, and basically make sure the president's interests are secure. The ever-shifting nature of the White House's most public faces have drawn comparisons to Trump's former reality TV show "The Apprentice", but not everybody's entertained.

The replacements keep coming within the White House. Scaramucci asked the President (Anthony Atamanuik). " Scaramucci hollered. I told you!"

Scroll down for a timeline of the Trump staffers who have been fired or quit since the president's inauguration in January.

The former director of the Office of Government Ethics was known to butt heads with the Trump administration before he resigned on July 6, The New York Times reported.

Trump's biggest and most embarrassing legislative failure, to date, occurred on July 27 after the Senate failed to vote on a partial repeal of the Affordable Care Act. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) looked on in dismay.

"You can't have a president who gets up at 5 a.m. and tweets policy", said Leon Panetta, a former chief of staff and a friend of Kelly's.
