Anthony Scaramucci will appear on the show of a virulent anti-Trump critic after being unceremoniously and quickly fired from the Trump administration.
Stephen Colbert of "The Late Show" announced the guest booking on his social media account Wednesday.
On Monday 8/14 Anthony Scaramucci will be my guest on @colbertlateshow. This is just a heads up for our censors to get ready! #themooch— Stephen Colbert (@Stephen Colbert)1502318193.0
"On Monday 8/14 Anthony Scaramucci will be my guest on ["The Late Show"]," he tweeted. "This is just a heads up for our censors to get ready! #themooch."
Scaramucci confirmed the announcement by retweeting Colbert's message from his account.
The former White House communications director was fired after a bizarre episode where he accused former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus of leaking to the media, then unleashed a list of epithets against administration officials in a call to a reporter.
Scaramucci said he believed the comments to be confidential, but the New Yorker reporter, Ryan Lizza, said there had been no such agreement, and published the salacious details of the tirade.
Scaramucci was let go after only 10 days after the announcement of his hiring, and before he officially assumed the position.
He assailed the reporter Wednesday, calling him a "low life" for recording the famous phone call that cost him his job.
Yes. He absolutely taped the call without my permission. #lowlife https://t.co/fTDcBw4vcT— Anthony Scaramucci (@Anthony Scaramucci)1502327490.0
Colbert has been so vehement in his criticism of the president that he had to apologize for going too far in an epithet-laced tirade during a show's monologue.
“You have more people marching against you than cancer,” he said. “You talk like a sign language gorilla who got hit in the head. In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c**k holster.”
The tirade occasioned an FCC investigation, but Colbert was cleared eventually.
However, Colbert was uncharacteristically gracious to the president after the terrible Virginia shooting where Republicans were targeted. In his monologue, he thanked Trump for his leadership and asked for everyone to come together as one nation.
Scaramucci will appear on "The Late Show" with Stephen Colbert at 11 p.m. ET Monday on CBS.
