Stephen Colbert: Gen. Kelly ‘drained all the fun’ out of the Trump admin by firing ‘the Mooch’
It’s no secret that Anthony Scaramucci, America’s shortest-lived White House communications director, was a media darling — and nobody misses him more than Stephen Colbert.
“Things are completely different since president-appointed new chief of staff and disappointed oak tree Gen. John Kelly” took office, Colbert began, citing rumors that Kelly got the job by standing up to Trump.
“Trump respects people who don’t suck up to him, starting…yesterday,” Colbert quipped.
“Kelly wasted no time, he did not waste a minute, draining all the fun out of the administration by immediately firing [Scaramucci],” Colbert concluded.
“We’re gonna miss you, Mooch,” he said. “Gen. Kelly, if we’re good, can we have Mooch back at the end of the semester?”
