Trump tweeted that it was 'a great day at the White House!' and everyone has gone in

“Shit. I’ve been using the word “great” wrong my entire life.”

LAST NIGHT, IT was confirmed that Anthony Scaramucci had been sacked from his role as White House Communications Director after just ten days.

It’s since come out that President Donald Trump decided that his foul-mouthed tirade to a reporter last week was “inappropriate”.

It was, objectively speaking, a chaotic day at the White House.

Which made it all the more strange when the President tweeted out this assessment late last night

It was the living embodiment of the “this is fine” meme

While the flames lick ever higher on the walls, that dog has its cup of tea and its immortal line:

this is fine

At some point, we’ll have to discuss this new definition of “great”

Even The Narrator from Arrested Development couldn’t get on board

Maybe he thought it was just another day on The Apprentice

But maybe the tweet had nothing to do with the farcical firing of his Communications Director after just TEN days

As is often the case, a quote from The Thick Of It’s Malcolm Tucker is instructive here:

Sacked after twelve months, looks like you’ve fucked up. Sacked after a week, looks like he’s fucked up.

It would genuinely make you wonder what would have to happen for Trump to admit it wasn’t a great day

The jokes just kept on coming

Probably not great reading for The Mooch

The last time a Trump tweet sparked such a discussion it was the “covfefe” debacle. This time there was no spelling mistake, just a reluctance to deal in reality.

This is fine.
