Late-Night Hosts All Revel In Scaramucci's White House Dismissal (Video)

19 of Trump's Twitter Targets

Late-night comedians were on fire last night, but Anthony Scaramucci was the one getting roasted.

"The Mooch" was fired as White House communications director on Monday after only 10 days on the job. His obscene interview with The New Yorker that went viral last week -- where he flung some extremely explicit insults toward Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus -- might have contributed to the decision.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the news in a statement: "Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best."

Here's what Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon had to say...

'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert'

"The Mooch is toast! The front stabber has been back stabbed. He said he was gonna fire everybody, and I've got to admit, he delivered," Colbert said on Monday's "Late Show."

Noting the brevity of Scaramucci's stay on President Donald Trump's administration, the comedian suggested Mooch's "going-away party serve what's left of his welcome cake. They can change congratulations to congratu-later!"

Friday, Trump replaced Reince Priebus with Gen. John Kelly as White House Chief of Staff, two men who are "polar opposite of each other," according to Colbert.

"John Kelly has two first names; Reince Priebus has no recognizable names at all," Colbert quipped. "And according to White House sources, Kelly let the Mooch go because he wanted 'more structure, less of Game of Thrones.'"

"That's not a fair comparison," Colbert noted. "With 'Game of Thrones,' you have to wait a whole week for a new beheading."

'The Daily Show with Trevor Noah'

"Wait, what!? Scaramucci out? But he just got here! I just bought the Scaramucci 2017 jersey. What the hell!" Noah said on "The Daily Show." "I haven't even finished my Scaramucci tattoo. Right now it just says Scar."

The comedian noted that Mooch's official start date was not even until Aug. 15, so he was essentially fired before he even started.

"He's like the song of the summer: Scaramucci came into our lives for like a week, and then he left us with nothing but memories and like a bunch of weird moves," Noah said before humming the Macarena and dancing along to a clip of the former communications director giving an animated speech.

"People are getting fired so quickly that the White House ghost has no idea who to haunt," he quipped.

'Late Night with Seth Meyers'

Meyers recounted Reince Priebus' series of unfortunate events this week before diving into the "114 pounds of Alfredo sauce, hair gel, and rage" that is Scaramucci.

The "Late Night" host said Scaramucci had allegedly been verbally abusive to Preibus prior to his public outrage last week, citing a Daily Beast article in which two sources said Mooch had called Priebus "Reince Penis" for years.

"It's official: The White House is a middle school cafeteria," Meyers quipped.

Meyers joked that Trump only fired one person a week at his last job on "The Apprentice," but "at this point, getting fired is part of orientation. 'Here's your desk, this is your extension number, now clean out your desk.'"

'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

"This is what's great about Donald Trump: Every time he does anything, you could find a tweet that contradicts it, 100 percent," Kimmel said on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

The comedian noted a tweet Trump posted back in February 2016: "Wow Ted Cruz disloyal to his very capable director of communication. He used him as a scape goat - fired like a dog! Ted panicked."

"It's only a matter of time before Trump replaces Ivanka with Tiffany," Kimmel joked before a fake Scaramucci called into the show to explain -- rather profanely -- why he was fired.

"You wanna know why I was fired?" the fake Scaramucci said. "The president doesn't want anybody working for him who has a bigger d-ck than him."

'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'

"This was a little awkward," Fallon said on "The Tonight Show." "When Scaramucci called an Uber to pick him up at the White House, Sean Spicer was driving. Imagine the odds of that happening."

"You know it's bad when you get fired after 10 days and everyone's like, 'What took you so long?'" he added.

Fallon whipped out his best Trump impression to mock the POTUS.

"'See, we're setting so many records,'" he said. "'He's the first person to ever get fired before they start working.'"

The comedian also addressed reports that have been circulating that claim Scaramucci missed the birth of his son last week, only to text his wife, "Congratulations."

"Trump was like, 'You don't text your wife after she has your baby; you tweet her.'" Fallon joked.
