Who Is Nicholas Scaramucci? The Mooch's Young Son Is His Fourth Child

Photo Seth Meyers, commenting on Anthony Scaramucci's 10-day stint as the White House communications director, noted that his "last name is longer than his tenure". On the day his son was born, Mr. Scaramucci, 53, traveled aboard Air Force One with Mr. Trump, and then watched as the president delivered a politically charged speech to thousands of Boy Scouts in West Virginia.

But on Monday night, Colbert switched up to the sombre part of Bohemian Rhapsody to say his good byes to the former communications director - nicknamed 'The Mooch'.

All of this made for much mirth in the peanut gallery on Twitter.

A fundraiser for Barack Obama in 2008, Scaramucci was initially a supporter of Hillary Clinton for 2016.

Before most Americans even had a chance to learn the correct spelling of his name, Anthony Scaramucci has been discarded.

Colbert originally welcomed Scaramucci to his role, singing a rendition of the Queen hit after joking his name sounds the line "Scaramouch, Scaramouch, can you do the fandango?" from the song.

This week we learned that the White House isn't really the white house.

But he need not panic, because at 53, the Mooch still has decades ahead of him. His use of "we" makes clear what side he was on.

Walker was joined at the Capitol by the South Korean ambassador to the United States, Ahn Ho-Young, to discuss business with Asia. Ryan urged state lawmakers to approve an incentives package that Walker promised in order to bring Foxconn to the state.


Yet Kimmel's telephone interview wasn't with the real Scaramucci, but rather with someone who was impersonating him and swearing a lot.

And even though Trump tweeted Monday morning that there was "no WH chaos!", Scaramucci was axed just six hours later.

"That happened this Monday", Oliver said of Kushner's brief remarks to the public - something Oliver took a moment to poke fun at, since a previous episode made fun of Kushner's ability to stay away from public speaking roles.

"Guo Wengui has on record revealed that HNA is a Chinese infiltration scheme operated by the Chinese intelligence organizations directly reporting to Wang Qishan, financed by state owned banks, with the singular objective of buying American strategic assets, senior government officials and politicians", according to Hoover Fellow and Geostrategy-Direct.com contributing editor Maochun Yu.

SkyBridge told Bloomberg that its deal with HNA is "on track" on August 1 after Scaramucci was canned at the White House.

The wild extemporizing doesn't surprise Jason Lahita, president and co-founder of FiComm Partners LLC in Los Angeles.

For Colbert, the short length of Scaramucci's stint was hard to fathom. Noah said. "I haven't even finished my Scaramucci tattoo!"

"He just got here!" All the while, he had been loudly badmouthing Trump, his eventual favorite.
