"And now that I'm gone you're all depressed, you're edgy and you're trying to figure out how to score some more Scara-mooch!"

Here's to hoping the world avoids nuclear destruction, and that Hader's priceless impersonation comes back this fall.

The short-lived Trump associate was skewered in the sketch, as he FaceTimed with hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che.

"Yo! It's me, Anthony Scaramucci".

But NBC's half-hour primetime (1.7, 6.531M) special made news when it jumped 42% off its The Wall lead-in to rank No. 2 for the night among Big 4 shows opposite CBS's housemates-from-hell reality series. Che and Colin Jost had talked about Scaramucci's firing earlier during the show, with Jost joking that it was a shame that SNL missed out the news story because it was "like Christmas in July". He actually witnessed the act; Bannon went "tongue to tip". America clearly can't get enough of Scaramucci, and thankfully, the Mooch is indulging us. On Wednesday, he compared himself to Monica Lewinsky, tweeting that Ryan Lizza, the New Yorker reporter whom Scaramucci called to vent about his frustration with leaks and the administration, was the "Linda Tripp of 2017".

In addition to Hader, Jost and Che were joined by fellow cast members Alex Moffat, Mikey Day, Kenan Thompson, and Leslie Jones peppered throughout the half-hour show.

So how does Anthony Scaramucci feel about Bill Hader's impression of him?

"Weekend Update: Summer Edition" continues with three more episodes this summer at 8 p.m. The Mooch's firing is the flawless example of why the show exists.

Well, the real Mooch might out of the picture (at least for now), but SNL alum Bill Hader's guest-appearance as former White House communications director was pretty much the highlight of the night.
