It is business as usual in the swamp that is our nation’s capital. Scaramucci will be forgotten in about 15 minutes — well, within a few days.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump himself proceeds from bold success to bold success, a contingency that will leave people asking ‘Anthony who?’ in just a matter of months if not weeks.
