Scaramucci to grant interview amid a 'den of lions'


ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos tweeted Thursday morning, "I'll sit down live with @Scaramucci for his first interview since being fired from the WH, this Sunday only on [This Week with George Stephanopoulos]".

The CBS late-night host is planning to ask the fired White House official about what it's like to be on the inside of this administration and the president's actual level of loyalty, considering he was sacked after holding the position for 10 days.

Stephen Colbert announced via Twitter that Anthony Scaramucci will appear on Monday's edition of "The Late Show" on CBS.

Colbert's "censors" comment was a reference to an explosive New Yorker report that was published before Scaramucci left his role at the White House.

In that time, he managed to unleash a NSFW rant to the New Yorker in which he attacked ex-chief of staff Reince Priebus as a "paranoid schizophrenic". Scaramucci was removed the same day Kelly was sworn in. He also lampooned The Mooch for his New Yorker interview but said he was a "broken man" when Scaramucci was sacked.

Remember also that Colbert is one of President Trump's vicious critics on television.

Colbert also lampooned Scaramucci's brief White House stint. The Mooch lasted as communications director for only 10 days. Colbert joked after his ouster. "That's not even a whole pay period".

The other guest on next Monday's "Late Show" is the actor Bob Odenkirk.
