Anthony Scaramucci Fired Late Night TV Seth Meyers

Late Night TV Reacts to Scaramucci's Quick White House Exit — Watch

The only people more broken up about Anthony Scaramucci’s White House departure than the man himself? The hosts of late night TV.

Late Show host Stephen Colbert got mock-emotional as he memorialized “The Mooch’s” ten-day tenure as President Trump’s communications director on Monday’s show, lamenting: “The front-stabber has been backstabbed.” Colbert also took a shot at the lightning-fast firing — “His going-away party can serve what’s left of his welcome cake” — and introduced Scaramucci’s rumored replacement: Emanuel Fruit Fly.

Over on NBC’s Late Night, Seth Meyers took “A Closer Look” at Scaramucci’s unceremonious exit, describing The Mooch as “114 pounds of alfredo sauce, hair gel and rage” and adding, “Scaramucci’s last name is longer than his tenure.” Like Colbert, Meyers had some ideas on a possible replacement to fill Scaramucci’s shoes: “an airhorn with chest hair,” “a lasagna with a switchblade,” and “a Monster energy drink with googly-eyes.”

And The Daily Show With Trevor Noah put together a faux “In Memoriam” video montage of Scaramucci, including his unprintable comments about Trump advisor Steve Bannon and the poignant end graphic: “Anthony Scaramucci: Late July 2017-Slightly Later July 2017.”

Press PLAY on the videos above for late night TV’s take on the Scaramucci exit, and then tell us: Who had the best jokes?

    But what about Mario Cantone???

    Not a shock they’re sad, the guy was rife with the kind of antics a reality show would kill to have. Here’s hoping the new WH CoS will let things settle. Be nice to be able to see the late night shows that tend to focus on politics not always have low-hanging fruit to target. It feels like for every Trump antic we’re missing out on some other antic, from Chris Christie’s nacho confrontation to learning what other sitting members of Congress have music albums.

    Ohh darn….he was going to provide such entertainment. Scaramucci was very much like Trump in that they are both very ineffective but never boring.
    Laughing stock does not even begin to describe the mess that is the US right now.

      You’re right but Trump and a lot of supporters do not realize how foolish he is making your country look to the rest of the world. I feel so sorry for all of you southern neighbours.

    Late July – Slightly Later July

    If the last six months have taught us anything, one farce will be replaced with something even more farcical, so doubt if the comedy material will suddenly dry up. In the words of the song “It’s sad, so sad. It’s a sad, sad situation. And it’s getting more and more absurd.”

    I swear, this administration is the gift that keeps on giving for comedians. Just amazing how it becomes more farcical every day.
