His White House tenure short but Scaramucci lives on in SNL

Mueller seeks interview with ex White House top aide report Mueller seeks interview with ex White House top aide report

You got a little bump of me. "I didn't say that Bannon tried to S his own C. he did it!" The slimy, loose-lipped businessman from Long Island makes for comedy gold; he was only part of the Trump administration for ten days, but this early edition of SNL allows an opportunity to portray him.

Saturday Night Live aired the first of its four Weekend Update summer specials on Thursday, and Bill Hader stole the show, as is often the case. And they had a lot to catch up on, stacking most of its 30 minutes with weeks old stories.

As "Update" anchor Michael Che read another headline, he received a sudden FaceTime call from Scaramucci, played as well as expected by the master impressionist Hader. There's not much to explain, though. "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. That's a pretty impressive failure. America clearly can't get enough of Scaramucci, and thankfully, the Mooch is indulging us. Thank goodness we have more SNL to help us through it all.

"Everybody loves the Mooch", Hader said as Scaramucci.

Trump's "locked and loaded" standoff with North Korea has Americans in high anxiety, hair-pulling among White House officials may be stalling his agenda, Robert Mueller's Russian Federation campaign-interference probe appears to be heating up with the recent Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and Trump faces the lowest-ever approval ratings for a president at this time in his first term. (Mikey Day) and Eric Trump (Alex Moffat). It was amusing at times, but certainly nothing new or unexpected.

Anthony Scaramucci may be pleased to learn that he was portrayed by an SNL legend on last night's episode of Weekend Update: Summer Edition.

Bill Hader hasn't returned to Saturday Night Live since he hosted the show for the first time in October of 2014, though he did pre-record a voice cameo for a sketch in the November 19, 2016 episode hosted by Kristen Wiig.
