Get ready, censors: Anthony Scaramucci to appear on The Late Show next week

Anthony Scaramucci, former White House communications director and lover of four-letter words, is making his late-night debut next Monday on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Colbert announced the booking on Twitter Wednesday evening, adding, "This is just a heads up for our censors to get ready!" Scaramucci had the briefest of tenures in the White House — just 10 days — and was ousted after an expletive-filled conversation with The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza, which targeted everyone from President Trump's chief strategist Stephen Bannon to former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, was made public. It's a safe bet that Colbert, who mercilessly mocked The Mooch during his blink-and-you'll-miss-it White House career, will be ready with some questions that could only be answered on late-night television.
