Colin Jost and Michael Che told Seth Meyers this week that they’re bummed about having missed out on the brief, weird saga of ousted Trump spokesman Anthony Scaramucci. But they made up for it Thursday on the premiere of “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update: Summer Edition,” with a surprise appearance by SNL vet Bill Hader as The Mooch.
“You know how you miss me, I’m like human cocaine,” said Hader/Scaramucci. “You got a little bump of me, I made you feel excited, but I was out of your system too quick. And now that I’m gone you’re all depressed, you’re edgy and you’re trying to figure out how to score some more Scara-mooch!”
Scaramucci famously was hired as Donald Trump’s Communications Director, only to be fired 10 days later (before he officially assumed the position), after a disastrous week in which he failed to attend the birth of his child, his wife filed for divorce because, according to rumor, of his political ambitions, and he was humiliated after a bizarre, grudge-filled conversation with a New Yorker reporter was made public because the Mooch allowed it to be on the record.
“The Mooch has no regrets, baby,” said Hader/Mooch about all that. “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.”
