Head’s up everybody, The Mooch is coming to late night television.

It’s no surprise that The Mooch is trying to get his side of the story out. Scaramucci was dismissed after only a measly 10 days in office for slamming both chief strategist Steven Bannon and chief of staff Reince Priebus, saying that “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own c–k,” and “Reince is a f—-ing paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac…” in his infamous New Yorker interview. After leaving, people took to Twitter to mercilessly poke fun at his short term.
my period has lasted longer than @Scaramucci as communications director

Whatever Scaramuci’s ulterior motive is, it will probably make for good television. Colbert has been killing the game with his late-night political comedy since Trump announced his candidacy, and this episode should not disappoint.
