Bill Hader as Anthony Scaramucci on “Weekend Update.” NBC
“SNL” alum Bill Hader brought a great impression of short-lived White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci to the first episode of the show’s “Weekend Update: Summer Edition” on Thursday night.
“I heard you two nutless liberal a–wipes mention my name earlier, and when I hear my name three times, I appear like a Goomba Beetlejuice,” Hader says, interrupting hosts Michael Che and Colin Jost with a fake FaceTime call.
Hader’s “The Mooch” goes on to say that he isn’t surprised by the brevity of his White House Tenure, which ended after just 11 days last month, following a controversial and explicit interview in The New Yorker.
“Hell no. Not after what I said to that a–wipe from The New Yorker, which was all off the record, by the way,” Hader says.
“But I guess people didn’t like it when I said that,” he continues. “And let me see if I can clean this up for primetime — that Steve Bannon was trying to ‘s’ his own ‘c.’ And by the by, I was completely misquoted. I didn’t say Bannon tried to ‘s’ his own ‘c.’ He did it! He made contact. I saw it, tongue to tip. Next question.”
After labeling himself “human cocaine,” “The Mooch” says he has “no regrets, baby” about his 15 minutes of fame.
“All I did was sell my company, miss the birth of my child, and ruin my entire reputation, all to be king of idiot mountain for 11 days,” he says.
