It’s been quite the roller coaster week and a half for Anthony ‘The Mooch’ Scaramucci and the entire Trump administration (although every week is a roller coaster with them). On Friday, July 21, everyone’s favourite punching bag, Communications Secretary Sean Spicer, resigned because he wanted to give Trump a ‘clean slate’ when Scaramucci came in as the new Communications Director. And while comedy grieved the loss of Spicey (poor Melissa McCarthy), we had some quick turn around because the new guy was even better than Spicer. For comedy, that is, not for actually working at the White House.
In his first week on the job, The Mooch made a complete 180 on every political opinion he had ever expressed, said ‘I love the president’ approximately 300 times, had an incredibly NSFW conversation on the record about the president’s Chief of Staff and his Chief Strategist and his wife filed for divorce because she doesn’t like the president. And after all that, Trump’s new Chief of Staff–after Trump fired the old guy on Friday–fired Scaramucci within a few hours of being sworn in. What a wild ride.
In the time we had The Mooch, the outrageous and explicit things he said really gave Donald Trump a run for his money. If he had stuck around longer, he might have dethroned the president as the most cartoonish non-cartoon on TV. The funniest thing about this whole ordeal is that Scaramucci wasn’t even supposed to start as Communications Director until August 15. Yes, he was fired more than two weeks before he was even due to start the job. What is even happening in that White House?
So let us say good-bye to The Mooch in the best way Twitter knows how: by pointing out the humour in the whole thing.

The Mooch looks like if cocaine was a person.

I am so mad that I learned who Anthony Scaramucci is and I didn’t have to.

Those at SNL working on their Mooch impressions must be SO disappointed.

RT if you’ve had a popcorn kernel stuck in your teeth longer than Mooch in the WH.

moot point (n.): a matter of no relevance
mooch point (n.): a matter so laughable it is dismissed almost immediately after it is brought up

Farewell, Mooch. You probably won’t be missed because we didn’t really know you that well and you seemed kind of shady, but good luck in your future endeavours.
