“The Mooch is toast. The front-stabber has been backstabbed.” Anthony Scaramucci’s hasty exit from his role as President Donald Trump’s communications director dominated the topic of conversation on late-night television Monday.
On The Late Show, Stephen Colbert paid a musical tribute to the Mooch’s 10-day occupancy in the White House, inspired by the similarities between his last name and Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” lyric, “Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?”
Colbert joked: “He said he was going to fire everybody and I’ve got to admit, he delivered. That is thorough.” “The Mooch lasted as communications director for only 10 days… 10! That’s not even a whole pay period,” the comedian added. “His going away party conserved what was left of his welcome cake. They can change ‘Congratulations’ to ‘Congratu-later.’”
