Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci has rhino-thick skin. He’s set to appear Monday on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”The short-lived White House communications director had been recruited by “dozens of television interviewers,” says CNN.
Despite being mocked by late-night comics for his foul mouth chat with a New Yorker reporter, Scaramucci chose the highest-rated show of the genre for a guest appearance.
“It remains to be seen whether Scaramucci and Colbert will be blowing each other kisses by night’s end,” said USA Today. “But Scaramucci is still peeved at [Ryan] Lizza for spilling all his four-letter beans, judging from his tweet Wednesday night.”
The Chicago Tribune added context: “He’s kept the feud with Lizza alive, tweeting Thursday that the reporter is ‘the Linda Tripp of 2017,’ a reference to the woman who taped conversations with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.”
On his show, Colbert said: “The Mooch! I can’t believe it! We got the Mooch. We set out a Mooch trap.”

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. … We’ll do some front stabbing, it will be a lot of fun.”
Why go on the "Late Show?" Well Colbert ridiculed Scaramucci for days… so maybe Mooch wants to be in on the joke? https://t.co/OcTgUxVqbu

Yuge ratings. CBS's gamble on Colbert is paying off… many not have if Trump wasn't elected. Colbert may get Mooch to say some thing…

The Mooch is going on Colbert. Who cares. I want tax reform, not sideshows and carnival barkers.

Cannot believe this freak is going to be on Colbert on Monday. I bet Mueller is coaching Colbert on how to trigger Mooch to spill some tea.
