Colbert mocks vulgar Scaramucci rant: ‘If Bannon could do that he’d never leave the White House’
“We got an incredible dose of unfiltered ‘Mooch’ today,” said Stephen Colbert on Thursday night, referring to new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci’s vulgar meltdown on the phone with The New Yorker‘s Ryan Lizza.
“I’m going to read you some of the quotes here,” Colbert said. “I want to give a quick warning to the CBS censors, you guys are going to have to break out the emergency extra bleeps for this one.”
Scaramucci told Lizza that he would fire everyone in the senior ranks of the White House if Lizza wouldn’t surrender the name of the person who revealed he’d be having dinner with President Donald Trump and the first lady.
Scaramucci called White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus a “f*cking paranoid schizophrenic” and said that former Breitbart CEO Steve Bannon is in the White House to promote his brand.
“I’m not Steve Bannon,” said Scaramucci. “I’m not trying to suck my own d*ck.”
“If Bannon could do that, he’d never leave the White House,” Colbert quipped.
