Seth Meyers Replaces Anthony Scaramucci's Vulgar Words With Rooster Sounds

The 'Late Night' host examined the communications director's recent comments during his "Closer Look" segment.

In the latest segment of "A Closer Look" on Late Night, host Seth Meyers investigated newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci's critical comments about chief strategist Steve Bannon and White House chief of staff Reince Priebus made to New Yorker correspondent Ryan Lizza. 

As Scaramucci's remarks were laden with profanities, Meyers created a workaround in the form of a familiar animal noise. "There's one word that we can't say on TV, so instead we're going to play the sound of a rooster and you can figure out what word he's using," the host said.

Meyers proceeded to read off a series of the communications director's comments, such as those aimed at Preibus leaking information about a dinner Scaramucci had with President Donald Trump, Sean Hannity and Fox News executive Bill Shine, with a rooster sound in place of a particular profanity.

"Let me leak the f—ing thing and see if I can [rooster noise]-block these people the way I [rooster noise]-blocked Scaramucci," Meyers read, interrupted by the loud crow of a roster sporadically.

Meyers then read out another, rooster-filled quote: "I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own [rooster noise]."

"I'm guessing Bannon was unavailable to comment because, based on his skillset, he was otherwise engaged," Meyers quipped. "Or maybe he did comment and it was muffled," Meyers continued. "You know, because of his [rooster noise]."
