The New York Post has been forced to update its cover depicting President Trump’s White House as an episode of the reality TV show “Survivor” after the surprise ouster of White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.
“The tribe has spoken again,” read a tweet from the Post.

The Post’s previous cover, released last week, followed a tumultuous week in the West Wing that saw President Trump attacking Attorney General Jeff Sessions and saw the shocking publication of a profanity-laced interview given by Scaramucci to The New Yorker in which he called former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus a “f—ing paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac.”
Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement on Monday that “[Scaramucci] felt it was best to give chief of staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team.” Scaramucci was abruptly fired just 10 days after stepping into his new role.
