One day after White House Communications Director Sean Spicer resigned under duress, Anthony Scaramucci took the helm at the podium.
And from the reactions of the press corps at the White House, he played the role of smooth operator.
It’s a far cry from the often combative Spicer who almost reveled in his status as chief pariah of the mainstream media.
Scaramucci, on the other hand, appears so far as a media-savvy spinster who knows how to move them where he wants.
Pundits used words like ‘polished’, ‘smooth as silk’, ‘coherent’.
It’s a positive turn for the Trump White House that is in need a good shot in the arm.

Anthony Scaramucci made a positive impression with the media in his first press conference as White House communications director.
Scaramucci spoke confidently from the podium and made an effort to call on as many reporters as possible, before ending the press conference with an air kiss to the media. Many reporters described Scaramucci’s performance as “smooth,” while others praised his comfortable speaking style.
“Anthony Scaramucci is showing here why President Trump picked him,” The Boston Globe’s DC bureau chief Matt Viser noted. “Smooth and soft-spoken. Lighthearted and optimistic.”
CNN anchor Dana Bash described Scaramucci as “smooth as silk as a talker.”
“A very polished performance behind the podium from Scaramucci,” observed the Washington Examiner’s chief political correspondent Byron York. “Rare in first 6 months of this [White House].”
US News and World Report senior politics writer David Catanese said, “IF Scaramucci is this calm and smooth six months from now, it’ll serve him, the president and the press very well.”
“Anthony Scaramucci is having a very good, very smooth on-camera debut,” said Washington Post reporter Ashley Parker.
