Stephen Colbert Promises 'Front-Stabbing' During Anthony Scaramucci Interview

Stephen Colbert Promises 'Front-Stabbing' During Anthony Scaramucci Interview

That'd be 11:35's go-to Trump deflater Stephen Colbert.

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.

The news comes from Colbert's own Twitter, where he simply dropped the news that the man he's been poking fun at for weeks would appear on his show. He added: "This is just a heads up for our censors to get ready!" Scaramucci played a pivotal role in the ouster of former chief-of-staff Reince Priebus, who was replaced on July 28 by Gen. John Kelly.

Despite being mocked by late-night comics for his foul mouth chat with a New Yorker reporter, Scaramucci chose the highest-rated show of the genre for a guest appearance.

Stephen Colbert advised U.S. President Donald Trump to "shut up" and stop provoking North Korea after Trump vowed to respond to threats from the isolated dictatorship with "fire and fury like the world has never seen".

For what it's worth, HuffPost already interviewed Scaramucci after his White House exit. Suffice it to say, Colbert is pretty pumped about it.

"The Mooch lasted as communications director for only ten days! Ten!"

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