You may have noticed the interesting timing of the firing of White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and the illegal leak about Anthony Scaramucci’s wife filing for divorce. It’s no coincidence: According to sources close to President Trump, that information (about a private citizen) was leaked by none other than the outgoing chief of staff as a spite move.
According to the unnamed source, Priebus and Deidre Ball were having an affair that had been going on for at least three months. Scaramucci learned what was going on when he confiscated all staffers’ cell phones and went through them. It was then that he found texts, including nude selfies, that the two had sent to each other.
When Donald Trump learned what Priebus had been doing with his new Communications Director’s wife, he was livid. He immediately summoned Priebus into the Oval Office and told him he was done because he will not tolerate such betrayal in his administration.
On Friday, “The Mooch” tweeted that the FAKE NEWS media should find better things to do than harass his family over this clearly personal business.
Leave civilians out of this. I can take the hits, but I would ask that you would put my family in your thoughts and prayers & nothing more.

Good job, President Trump! It’s good to see that you put your people and America first!
