Stephen Colbert books Anthony Scaramucci for Monday's 'Late Show'

Posted August 11, 2017

Colbert said he plans to ask Scaramucci what it's like inside the Trump White House and "how loyal he feels the president is now".

The comments were seemingly made in response to reports that North Korea has successfully produced a nuclear warhead that's small enough to fit inside its intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM). Colbert joked after Scaramucci was shown the way out. The news was announced by the host himself via Twitter. "They count on me to be a straight shooter with a calm voice". "I have an announcement right now of an actual exclusive interview that we're going to have Monday".

Colbert briefly discussed what he plans to talk about with Scaramucci.

"Look, North Korea, stop trying to make "us" a thing, alright?" We'll do some front-stabbing. They threaten us in a way you never will. Maybe you should start threatening other countries, too. "I'm just kidding." Nope.

The world may not have seen the last of Anthony Sacarmucci.

On his show, Colbert said: "The Mooch!".

"I'm going to fire everybody, that's how I'm going to do it", Scaramucci said. Anthony Scaramucci, the White House communications director whose 10-day stint launched a thousand memes (including one from Kate Hudson), will be speaking on television for the first time since being fired.
