CBS star Colbert opened "The Late Show" with an explanation that even White House officials view Scaramucci, a.k.a The Mooch, as a “joke” and a “Trump-world ‘hanger-on’ who isn’t qualified for the job.” But then again, Trump didn't have the most impressive political resume either, since he never held public office before swooping to the top as POTUS, so Colbert thinks Scarmucci will fit right in.
The comedian introduced his first impression of The Mooch by mocking his attempt to say goodbye to Sean Spicer and addressing his awkward comments about Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ physical appearance.
“He’s going to fit in with the Trump administration just fine,” Colbert said. “And you could smile more. Would that hurt you so much? You’re so pretty when you smile.”
Meyers dedicated his “A Closer Look” segment to The Mooch, saying he was confused why anyone would actually want to “fill the void left by Spicer’s absence, not to mention his presence.”
But things started to make sense once Meyers took a glance at Scaramucci's appearance.
“Now we’re talking, I mean look at this guy. He is the human embodiment of a double-parked BMW. He looks like the guy who leaves a doo-wop group over creative differences.”
“He definitely calls waitresses ‘sweetheart,’" he continued. "His yearbook quote was ‘Don’t worry about it.’”
And to finish things off, Meyers left us with one last piece of humor to sum up everything you need to know about the change in White House staffing. “The Mooch gave us a smooch after Spicey screwed the pooch," he joked.
