The Trump administration has been an interesting one to watch so far, and we’ve only eight months in. Since January, when Trump was inaugurated, his administration has seen some serious turnover. Whether you agree with the people ousted or not, it’s definitely made for an interesting news cycle. With Steve Bannon, Anthony Scaramucci, Sean Spicer, and Reince Priebus all ousted within weeks of each other in July and August, it immediately called to mind all of the other people that have been ousted from the Trump administration so far. Here are ten of the most memorable or important ones.

Michael Flynn

Michael Flynn was Trump’s original National Security Advisor. On February 13th, 2017, Flynn resigned from the administration for deception surrounding his possible ties to foreign governments and a meeting with a Russian ambassador.  General McMaster was named as his replacement.

Sally Yates

Sally Yates was not a Trump hire, but she was a Trump fire.  The acting Attorney General, who served in that role after Trump was inaugurated and Loretta Lynch left, was pushed out by the Trump administration on January 30th, 2017, for her announcement that she would not defend Trump’s executive order on immigration. Now, Jeff Sessions is Attorney General and Rod Rosenstein is his deputy.

James Comey

As we all know, Jim Comey was one of the most talked about fire of Trump’s administration. Comey was fired on May 9th, 2017, when Trump stressed that the FBI needed new leadership to “restore public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission.” Christopher Wray was recently confirmed to replace Comey.

While not necessarily pushed out of the administration, Deputy National Security Advisor KT McFarland was pushed out of the White House, along with her former boss, Michael Flynn. The president has now nominated McFarland to be the new ambassador to Singapore, which was announced on May 19th.

Katie Walsh

Perhaps we should have seen the shakeups coming long before they rocked the country in July 2017, because back in March 2017, Trump ousted his Deputy Chief of Staff, Katie Walsh, an ally of Priebus, was moved to America First Policies.

Mike Dubke

Before there was Scaramucci, there was Dubke, On May 18th, 2017, Dubke tenured his resignation to the President, citing personal reasons for his departure. His ousting had been rumored for several weeks beforehand. It is said that he has rejoined his former communications firm.

Sean Spicer

Sean Spicer was Trump’s embattled Press Secretary, but he resigned when Anthony Scaramucci took over as Communications Director. He was replaced by his deputy, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. He resigned on July 21st, 2017, but announced that he would stay on at the White House until August.

Reince Priebus

The former RNC leader became Trump’s White House Chief of Staff, but only lasted just over six months. He was replaced by General John Kelly, Secretary of Homeland Security, announced in an out-of-the-blue tweet by President Trump. Priebus says he tenured his resignation on July 27th, the day before Trump’s announcement.

Anthony Scaramucci

After Mike Dubke’s resignation, Anthony Scaramucci was announced as his replacement. His style immediately began making waves. He was widely blamed for the dismissals of Spicer and Priebus.  After only ten days on the job, he was outed by his own tactics when General John Kelly took over as Chief of Staff. His replacement has not yet been named.

Steve Bannon

On August 18th, Drudge Report and New York Times reported that Steve Bannon, the former executive chair of Breitbart, has been dismissed from the White House. He was Trump’s chief strategist and was previously the chief executive of the campaign for Donald Trump. His dismissal comes after a week of rumors that he was on his way out.
