Seth Meyers rips Anthony Scaramucci in latest 'Late Night' episode

An unnamed official, however, told CNN that the decision to sack the newly installed communications director was a direct order from John F. Kelly, adding that the new chief of staff thought Anthony Scaramucci lacked the discipline for the White House role.

"He said he was gonna fire everybody", Colbert said, "And I gotta admit, he delivered". Meyers, taking note that Scaramucci's last name has as many letters as the number of days he spent in his job, offered some possible replacements for a communications director. "His going-away party could serve what's left of his welcome cake", said Colbert. "They can change congratulations to congratu-later!" He pointed to how Scaramucci had recently told the entire White House staff, "You want to sell postcards to the tourists outside the gate or you want to work in the West Wing?".

"The Mooch lasted as communications director for only ten days! Ten!"

Noah also pointed out that technically Scaramucci's official start date as communications director wasn't even until August 15.


"But just think about that Scaramucci got [former White House Chief of Staff Reince] Priebus fired, and then he got fired two days later", Meyers joked.

But "Late Night" host Seth Meyers wasn't as devastated as devastated as the other hosts were.

"The guy got fired before the job began!"

"When Scaramucci called an Uber to pick him up at the White House, Sean Spicer was driving. Imagine the odds of that happening".

"Trump was like, you don't text your wife after she has your baby", Fallon quipped.


But perhaps the most innovative reaction was on Jimmy Kimmel Live, in which Kimmel managed to secure a phone interview with an impressive Mooch mimic.

But on Friday, Scaramucci, a wealthy New York-based financier, found himself without a job. Stephen Colbert's team wrote a Queen-inspired song; Trevor Noah played a bittersweet "In Memoriam" montage; and Jimmy Kimmel even managed to line up a "phone interview" with the crass man of the hour.

Then, Kimmel summed up the night: "How did we lose the Mooch already?"
