Colbert will have America’s shortest-serving White House Communications Director on his CBS program on August 14. The news was announced by the host himself via Twitter.
“On Monday 8/14 Anthony Scaramucci will be my guest on @colbertlateshow.” shared Colbert. “This is just a heads up for our censors to get ready!”
During Scaramucci’s incredibly brief yet unmistakably distinct tenure, he attracted a lot of attention on the Late Show. Mind you, when the mouthpiece of the White House brings autofellatio into the cable news cycle how could you not? Colbert has mined an ample amount of laughs from Scaramucci’s bite-size stretch in the role and here are a few of the greatest hits. Hopefully they’ll throw to one as a surprise clip for the sake of awesome TV.
Monday’s interview should make for fascinating television that may even veer to the squeamish side if things get nasty. Unless Scaramucci engages in another bit of speedy political retooling, we’re in line to get fireworks over the policies and philosophies of the Trump administration. One wonders if Trump will watch it live or wait for Fox & Friends to give a recap.
