Stephen Colbert Mocks Obscene Scaramucci Tirade

The surreal, vulgar interview White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci gave to Ryan Lizza of the New Yorker must be read to be believed.

Scaramucci threatened to fire the entire White House communications staff, tried to get Lizza to reveal a source and accused presidential adviser Steve Bannon of autofelatio.

Stephen Colbert had a field day with it.

“I want to give a quick warning to the CBS censors,” Colbert said to his "Late Show" audience before reading quotes from the interview. “You guys are going to have to break out the emergency extra bleeps for this one.”

The "Late Show" host highlighted one of the most vulgar segments that found Scaramucci complaining about Bannon’s self-interest. “I’m not Steve Bannon. I’m not trying to suck my own d**k,” Colbert read.

Colbert’s thoughts? “If Bannon could do that, he’d never leave the White House.”
