Stephen Colbert Sings Farewell To Anthony Scaramucci [VIDEO]

On Monday Stephen Colbert was so sad by the “breaking nooch” that President Trump had fired White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci after just 10 days on the job. “Yes, the Mooch is toast,” Colbert said. “The front-stabber has been back-stabbed. He said he was going to fire everybody, and I gotta admit, he delivered.” The list of the fired includes White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, who was replaced by Gen. John Kelly, his “polar opposite,” he said. “John Kelly has two first names, Reince Priebus has no recognizable names at all.”

Kelly wanted Scaramucci gone, according to a White House source, because he wanted more structure and “less of Game of Thrones,” Colbert said. “That’s not a fair comparison. With Game of Thrones, you have to wait a whole week for a new beheading.” Craziest of all, Trump began Monday tweeting about the lack of “chaos!” in his White House,” he noted. “Evidently, ‘no chaos’ wasn’t bragging, it was complaining.”
