President Trump today named Bradley D. Long of Decatur, Alabama as his new White House Communications Director, replacing the controversial Anthony Scaramucci. Scaramucci was fired by Trump's new Chief of Staff, former Marine Corps General John Kelly, on Monday.
"Brad is a brilliant, highly-intelligent and capable communicator who will bring a no-nonsense but fair approach to our dealings with the Media," Trump said in a series of tweets. "Couldn't have picked a better man for the job...much respect!"
Long was notified of his appointment while he vacationed in the Hamptons on his yacht, the 30 foot-long "Miss Behavin'. President Trump personally called Long to tell him the news. In a statement Long said, "It is a great honor and privilege to be entrusted with the mantle of Communications Director for the President of the United States. I give you my word that no vulgarities shall leave my lips, unless they are in reference to the vile and odious Crimson Tide of Alabama...Go Vols!" Alabama coach Nick Saban could not be reached for comment.
