Stephen Colbert on Trump's North Korea threats: 'We're all going to die'

Stephen Colbert on Trump's North Korea threats: 'We're all going to die'

In a tweet posted this afternoon, Stephen Colbert told censors to gird themselves, because Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci will be appearing as a guest on The Late Show next Monday. George Stephanopoulos will also be interviewing Scaramucci on Sunday for ABC's "This Week", so Colbert's sit-down will not be the first time the Mooch appears on camera that week.

"Look, I know a lot of people tune into this show on a nightly basis to get their news and information", Colbert said as he opened Tuesday's Late Show.

Scaramucci was replaced nearly immediately by former Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.

The Mooch was sacked late last month by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly who, ironically, was supposed to be kept in check by The Mooch. Scaramucci was removed the same day Kelly was sworn in.




"The Mooch lasted as communications director for only ten days! Ten!" Colbert joked after Scaramucci was shown the way out. Suffice it to say, Colbert is pretty pumped about it.

The Mooch also accused reporter Lizza of recording his now infamous New Yorker interview without his permission. "That's not even a whole pay period".

Colbert is one of President Trump's fiercest critics on television.

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