Trump’s ousted staffer doesn’t look thrilled as he’s mocked by gay comic on “The View”

Of all the odd footnotes of the Trump Administration so far, Anthony “the Mooch” Scaramucci, press secretary for about eight seconds, has to be the oddest.

Still, he’s milking it for all its worth.

That being said, it isn’t worth much, as evidenced by this somewhat uncomfortable appearance he made recently on The View.

Joy Behar asked Mooch if he prefers being impersonated by Bill Hader or out comic and Sex and the City actor Mario Cantone, and he indicated his choice is Cantone. Then out walked Cantone as the spitting image of the Mooch.

The Mooch does his best to play along, and we’re sure the whole thing was staged, but the undercurrent of annoyance is pretty easy to pick up on.

He even tried to read Cantone, asking “How bummed were you when I got fired? You were on your way, and then you got shot down like a little bird.”

Cantone instantly replied, “You got nothing. Spicer got the Emmys and you’re sitting here with four bleeding-heart chiacchierones.”

    I don’t know, I think he really looks like Ioan Gruffudd (Mr. Fantastic in the Fantastic Four movie)

    I wonder what the format for the no doubt soon to be Scaramucci reality show will be. He (the Mooch) knows he has to be kind to gays and if this wasn’t a preamble to the show’s soon to be announcement then I just don’t get it. Why the hell else is he making the rounds on these shows that needed to be cancelled years ago for? I mean really, its just impossible for this show (The View) to be aimed at anything else but the post menopause crowd and retired gay men.

      so you’re in their target audience.

      I retired VERY comfortably ten years ago at age forty-eight. How about you?

      You go for the juggular, and judgemental don’t you.
      Diverse spectrum of 35-60 women. High for its age! And others groups.

      21 years it is the only talk show that show intelligent debate without a horrid fashion makeover 3 times a week. It is a classic and deserves to be respected.

      It was a roast of Scaramooci. He was ver uncomfortable.
      He was clearly uncomfortable. But inside scoop, Joy knocked it out of the park, first phone call he got even before his mother. That’s guts and fast reflexes, insight and has mour. 5/5 best at what she does.

      Bold crazy choice and it was all that and a piece of cake, too!

    Obviously the Mooch (very sketchy looking dude) wanted to go under the table with Cantone. Kisses and hands for abound. Very cool funny interlude. I like Cantone a lot.

  • Nahald

    I would have thought that this guy’s 15 minutes of fame were over the second he was “fired”. I guess he not finished making a nuisance of himself.

  • sfcarlos65

    As a rule, bullies can’t take what they dish out.

  • He BGB

    His mom and other family members were sitting in the front row. I think Joy likes him (he’s Italian, too) but she HATES Trump and probably set up as much humiliation as she could evrn though he’s free now. I too vet the feeling he’s on an audition tour for some new job in showbiz. He seems to be very orthodox Catholic so he can’t be TOO accepting of gays. His mother looked like Morgana King in The Godfather.

    Gee whiz, it would be nice if these gals weren’t always pressing their liberal views and had guests with opposing and valid views and stories., but since its ABC, they need to keep their jobs as it’s liberal media. I gave up watching the ‘view’ years ago and if I’ve time, i watch Wendy Williams, at least she’s got ‘dirt’ AKA ‘hot topics’ on issues and people and seems not to care where the ‘stories’ come from. This is if I’ve time to watch daytime television. mostly it’s a bunch of reruns anyway, so who cares?

      Don’t we have enough pseudo republicans ranting 24/7/365? No more.
      Liberal with humour essential! So up tight.

      @Stephen

      You posted those same lines of text just above. However, are you serious when you say, “it is the only talk show that show intelligent debate”?

    • DCguy

      Hmm, a new account complaining about “Liberals”, one of the right wing screenames posts a reply on the thread, and they are being careful to mention that they like an African American talk show host.

      Looks like Mo Bro is trying out a new screename, but is being very careful with this one. lol

  • Low Country Boy

    I don’t know what interview you were watching, but Scaramucci laughed at Mario’s impersonation and was very gracious about it.

    • OzJosh

      Of course he did. The guy’s an attention whore. He’s grateful for anything that will extend his window of notoriety – and there’s nothing “gracious” about that. Any decent person with a minimal sense of shame or propriety would quietly disappear after the disastrous few weeks he had in the national spotlight. But not the Mooch. He’s more than happy to make himself the butt of jokes on a daytime chat show for the sake of more attention.

  • silveroracle

    Can’t see the vid because it’s on this stupid Waywire thing.
    Anybody else having the same problem?

    • Keebler ILF

      Sometimes that happens to me also. But I went to youtube and searched for “Mooch on The View” and a 26 minute video from the show appeared at the top of the list.

  • GaybyGod

    CORRECTION!
    This IS NOT discrimination against conservatives!

    It’s called in their own terms,
    “Reaping what they sowed” .

    • GaybyGod

      Nix comment – it was for another article. Relates a little in the “what one sows, so shall they reap” aspect though.

  • inbama

    Scaramucci was not a Conservative until his ultra-brief stint in the Trump Swamp House?
    From Wiki:
    “Scaramucci supported the presidential campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. In 2008, Scaramucci also served as a fundraiser for President Barack Obama…Scaramucci has tweeted at various times that he has “always been for strong gun control laws”, and that “Republicans should support gay marriage”
