One day after being ousted as White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci told TMZ that the next move for him is “working on being the best person I can be.”

“I want chief of staff Kelly to have an unbelievable opportunity inside the White House,” Scaramucci told TMZ on Tuesday, after losing his administration job in just 10 days.

His departure came on the same day that former Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly assumed his new role as President Trump’s chief of staff.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a Monday statement that Scaramucci “felt it was best to give chief of staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team.” 


Asked by TMZ whether he had any advice for the White House’s next communications director, Scaramucci, in his first public remarks since Monday, replied that it “was not appropriate” for him to comment “right now.”

He also remained tight-lipped about whether he had a chance to say goodbye to Trump before leaving the White House.

But the 53-year-old former hedge fund manager did address chatter about a potential future gig.

When asked if he’d consider appearing on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” — Scaramucci, along with former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, has been buzzed about as a possible contestant — he responded with a smile, saying, “I don’t know how to dance.”
