Bill Hader Delivers His Anthony Scaramucci Impression

Trump: 'I call him chief' John Kelly

Anthony Scaramucci didn't survive the Trump administration long enough to get lampooned on Saturday Night Live, but his 11-day stint as White House communications director is the very reason NBC made a decision to create a standalone spin-off of Colin Jost and Michael Che's comedic SNL news segment. Colin Jost and Michael Che have returned as anchors of the "Weekend Update: Summer Edition", just in time to capitalize on the White House's scandals, including Anthony Scaramucci. Hader, who left SNL in 2013, continues as The Mooch. In the first episode of the summer series, SNL legend Bill Hader popped in to give the Mooch the treatment he deserved. Jost began. "He was like Christmas in July. I'm like human cocaine", Hader said.

When Che suggested he would have liked Scaramucci to have stuck around in his White House position a little longer, Hader's Scaramucci agreed but said he had no regrets.

"Everybody loves the Mooch".

In addition to Hader, Jost and Che were joined by fellow cast members Alex Moffat, Mikey Day, Kenan Thompson, and Leslie Jones peppered throughout the half-hour show.

Those who are looking to "score some more Scara-mooch" are in luck, as Stephen Colbert has landed an interview with the real Anthony Scaramucci. I made you feel excited, but I was out of your system too quick. "You guys hiring over there, because I tell jokes now: Hickory dickory dock, Steve Bannon was sucking -", he said before the clip ended.

"All I did was sell my company, missed the birth of my son, and ruined my entire reputation". He then takes some questions, including commenting on his remarks to the New Yorker about Steve Bannon trying to "S his own C". Hader has always been an fantastic impressionist with a chameleon voice, and this turn as Anthony Scaramucci shows that he hasn't lost his touch since leaving the sketch show a few years back.
