Anthony Scaramucci is out. It's tempting to view all of this as a reality TV show, entertaining but of no consequence. The real reality is more sobering. We have a president who has no idea what's going on, and a White House in total chaos. We have a foreign policy in utter disarray as Russia, North Korea, and ISIS continue to threaten America.
