Stephen Colbert Mocks Anthony Scaramucci's Epic Rant
“I want to give a quick warning to the CBS censors, you’re going to want to break out the extra bleeps for this one."
Stephen Colbert wasted no time in going after newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on the Late Show Thursday night.
"We got an incredible taste of unfiltered Mooch today," the host said before launching into Scaramucci's critical comments about chief strategist Steve Bannon and White House chief of staff Reince Priebus made to New Yorker correspondent Ryan Lizza.
“I want to give a quick warning to the CBS censors, you’re going to want to break out the extra bleeps for this one,” Colbert said before reading Scaramucci's comments.
In regards to the communications director's comments about Preibus, who he believed leaked information a dinner Scaramucci had with President Donald Trump, former Fox News executive Bill Shine and Fox News commentator Sean Hannity, in which Scaramucci called Preibus a "f—ing paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac," Colbert broke out his latest impersonation.
“He’s paranoid, OK? He thinks his own communications director is gonna stab him in the back,” Colbert said in his mock-Scaramucci Italian accent before adding, “Front-stab!” with a threatening gesture.
Addressing Scaramucci's comments that Bannon is "trying to build [his] own brand off the f—ing strength of the president" and assertion that he's not Bannon and "I’m not trying to suck my own cock, "Colbert commented, “Look, if Bannon could do that, he’d never leave the White House. Though, I gotta say, we never see him anymore.”
