Scaramucci to guest on Colbert's 'Late Show' next week

Scaramucci going on Stephen Colbert's show Monday

On Wednesday, he announced on Twitter that he would appear on CBS' "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" on Monday, August 14.

Colbert's gleeful focus on the Trump White House has given his show a late-night ratings lead, and landing Scaramucci is a coup for the host.

As soon as he started his role as communications director, he gave numerous media interviews and threatened fire his entire staff in an effort to stem the leaking that has plagued President Trump's administration since nearly the first day. "That's not even a whole pay period". Dozens of television interviewers have been vying to interview the man known as "Mooch".

TV executives will have been vying to book Mr Scaramucci, whose brief tenure cost him his marriage, and so the appearance will be seen as a coup for Colbert, a regular critic of USA president Donald Trump.
