Seth Meyers, who was with “Saturday Night Live” for more than a decade, knows a thing or two about New York stereotypes.
So when Anthony Scaramucci was appointed the White House Communications Director, he knew exactly what to say.
“Look at this guy! He’s a human pinkie ring,” Meyers said on “Late Night” Monday. “He’s the human embodiment of a double-parked BMW. He looks like the guy who leaves a doo-wop group over creative differences.”
Meyers then recounted Scaramucci’s first press briefing, where he spent the bulk of the time lavishing praise onto the President and talking about what a good athlete he was. Those comments obviously didn’t escape Meyers’ wit, but he did admit that Scaramucci was an “experienced schmoozer with a much slicker style than Spicer.”
“In summary, the Mooch gave us a smooch while Spicey screwed the pooch,” he concluded.
Then Meyers dug into past comments Scaramucci made about both Trump and other political beliefs. Scaramucci spent a lot of the weekend deleting old tweets that contradicted Trump. For example, he deleted a December 2015 tweet saying “Walls don’t work. Never have never will. The Berlin Wall 1961-1989 don’t fall for it.”
And while he appeared to support the president on news shows — saying he’ll back Trump up — Meyers saw something quite different.
“In fact you could even say that I’m here to be the president’s accomplice i just want to be the accessory to his agenda both before and after the fact. we’re breaking and entering a new era,” Meyers joked.
