In Memorium: “Mooch” (July 21, 2017 – July 31, 2017)

On Sunday night, John Oliver, host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” returned with a tribute to Anthony “Mooch” Scaramucci, the newly appointed White House communications director.

Little did he know that in less than 24 hours “Mooch” would be gone, relegated to the trash bin of discarded White House staffers.

The “mourning” began shortly after the news was broken in news media. The verbal leader of The Resistance, Keith Olbermann, was among the first to report on the departure of “Mooch.”

The rending of garments truly began on the late night talk shows, beginning with Trevor Noah, “The Daily Show” host, who lamented that “Mooch” was gone before he even started.

A devastated Stephen Colbert of “Late Show” paid his respects with a song.

Finally, Seth Meyers wondered what would the White House do without “Mooch” and the loss of Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus, the obvious anagram.

The staff at the White house has been dropping like flies. Will Trump call his new chief of staff, retired Marine general John F. Kelly, to swat at them?
