Stephen Colbert Stumps Anthony Scaramucci with One Pointed Question

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci entered "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" set to a chorus of boos. His response? "I'll pretend those are 'mooches' and not boos." Classy guy, that one.


The interview did not disappoint. Scaramucci called the president "compassionate" and tried to explain away President Trump's sluggish denunciation of white supremacists. When Scaramucci pointed out that Trump denounced Nazis on Monday, Colbert replied, "Two days later! Does he order his spine from Amazon Prime?”

Scaramucci also had the gall to suggest Trump made a huge personal sacrifice by giving up his "luxurious lifestyle" to become the president.

Colbert had one question: "Who cares?"
