One unnamed White House official has created emoji shorthand for some of the staff, Axios’ Jonathan Swan reports. Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director known as “the Mooch,” is now referred to as: ?. This is apparently a nod to both a nickname and the kiss he blew journalists following a string of questions about his new position at the White House.

In addition to Scaramucci’s shorthand, Bannon allies reportedly refer to Gary Cohn as “Globalist Gary” or “?,” and Reince Priebus, “the prancer,” as a reindeer. No word yet on text-talk for President Donald Trump or First Lady Melania.
