“Anthony Scaramucci” FaceTimes Weekend Update Asking for a Job

Recommended Videos

Last night on Weekend Update: Summer Edition, “Anthony Scaramucci” (read: Bill Hader in a blue suit) interrupted Michael Che’s report about a raccoon that got its head stuck in a jar. When asked why he was FaceTime-ing the show, he delivered what’s sure to be a fine SNL quotable, “I heard you two nutless liberal ass wipes mention my name earlier and when I hear my name three times, I appear like a Goomba Beetlejuice.” I’ll give you a minute to change your Twitter username to Goomba Beetlejuice (you know, if you haven’t already). Great. Okay.

They had a nice, short chat about what it was like to work for the White House (“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.”) and what the public reaction has been since the end of his short tenure (“Everybody loves the Mooch. You know how you miss me. I’m like human cocaine. You got a little bump of me, I made you feel excited, and I was out of your system too quick. Now that I’m gone, you’re all depressed and edgy and you’re trying to figure out how to score some more Scaramucci!”).

What’s especially hilarious about the entire bit is that even though Hader delivered each line with some incredible intensity, I still felt like he was reading a cue card or two. I want to believe that’s totally part of the bit, that Scaramucci would need a cue card for an impromptu call to a news show that he initiated, but who knows. It’s just hilarious to think that they resorted to this level of detail in order to really stick it to the guy.
