As expected, Retired General John Kelly, the incoming White House Chief of Staff had Anthony Scaramucci removed from his newly appointed position as Communications Director.

After months of fighting to keep their baby alive, Charlie Gard has died. The parents of Charlie Gard announced earlier this week that they would not be able to continue the legal fight to keep their nearly one year old son alive.
