For the first time since his brief and ill-fated tenure as White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci will be appearing in a television interview, and he’s chosen a most unlikely venue. Late night show-host, Stephen Colbert, announced on Twitter that Scaramucci, also known as “The Mooch,” would be a guest on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Monday night.
Colbert, whose show’s ratings have risen to the number one spot since President Donald Trump took office, has built his comedy brand primarily on conservative-bashing comedy. After President Trump himself, Scaramucci’s short-lived political career has likely provided the comedian with his most popular material.
“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,” tweeted Colbert on Wednesday.
“This strikes me as incredibly dumb,” said Stu Burguiere on “Pat and Stu” today. “With Colbert, of all things!”
“This is a no-win situation for [Scaramucci],” added Pat Gray.
