12:00 pm
now to learn more. >> mason: this is a cbs news special report. i'm anthony mason reporting from cbs news headquarters in new york, good day. that week is beginning like the last one ended with another shake-up at the white ho s the >> this is a cbs special report. another shakeup at the white house. the new communications director is now the old communications director. anthony scaramucci is out 10 days after the appointment was announced. he was fired by the new chief of staff, general john kelly on his first day of the job. that happened hours after president trump tweeted there's no chaos at the white house. july21st white house press cret
12:01 pm
after scaramucci was named communications director. he then butted heads with then chief of staff reince priebus. and last friday president trump replaced priebus with scaramucci. >> there's something close to chaos. a four star marine corps general has been brought in here in large part to try to get rid of the choose. and looks like his first step in doing that is to get rid of anthony scaramucci, the brand new communications director. profanity laced -- that he launched at reince priebus and at steve bannon. it was anything but military discipline. and military discipline is what he plans to bring to bear around this place. there are some people who believe that president trump is only going to change so much.
12:02 pm
and remember, there were reports after anthony scaramucci's tirade, president trump liked it. we'll see if this is one step or are they going to get rid of three or four different power centers that are at constant war fair with one another. are they going to be able to install military discipline. >> is mr. scaramucci out of the white house entirely? >> they are about to put out a statement. and we don't know exactly what is going to happen. certainly he is not one of the main people talking to president trump and talking to
12:03 pm
the press if general kelly has anything to do with it. >> again, his first day on the job. and it's already been an eventful one with the ousting of anthony scaramucci. the tenure was just 10 days but it had a significant impact because it resulted in the departure of reince priebus and sean spicer. >> reporter: that's right sean spicer left because scaramucci was brought in. and reince priebus left apparently because of this battle. but at this point, that's been wiped off the board. and it's hard to believe that general kelly would bring in anybody other than a respected communications director, perhaps someone he worked with at the department of homeland security or someone he knows from military circles and will
12:04 pm
help him install military discipline. >> do we have any indication what sort of conditions general kelly accepted the job of chief of staff on. intersection a lot of questions. mr.scaramucci reported to the president, not the chief of staff which is one of the points of contention with reince priebus. >> i think what is happening today is our first big clue on the conditions that he demanded here. because it was very much up in the air as to whether he would be able to impose discipline, get his way, get his own people in there. get rid of people not acting in the way of -- >> we're waiting for other shoes to drop if he'll perhaps get rid of other people who are
12:05 pm
at constant war fair or shuttle them off so that the people reporting directly to him are marching together as they do in the marine corps. >> i want to read the statement that the white house just put out. anthony scaramucci will be leaving his role as communications director. he felt it was best to give john kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. we wish him all the best. that would seem to indicate that there's not another job at the white house. that's pretty much what reince priebus said last week. well, again, the president tweeting there's no white house chaos but another day of turmoil in the white house as the white house communications director 10 days after taking the job -- a very loud 10 days -- is leaving and we don't know who will be replacing him.
12:06 pm

12:11 pm
away from the water. >> john valentini and his family can be seen walking the dog on any given day but when rip currents and sneaker waves are there, he plays it safe. >> it's dangerous and it's cold. >> reporter: pacifica is nice and cool which means fewer people in the water. tourists can get a little too close to mother nature. the beach patrol has stayed busy. >> look for people knee deep or res. anybody past their knees we'll bring them in. >> it's best to stay out of the water. and the hazards include larger breaks from time to time. rip currents, and sneaker waves, and they say to avoid swimming, but it's also best to keep your eye on the water just in case. in pacifica, sandra osborne, kpix 5. bart is rolling out a new
