Mario Cantone Perfectly Captures Trump’s New BFF Anthony Scaramucci

After just a few days as Donald Trump’s new White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci is already ruffling feathers in Washington, D.C. The Mooch hasn’t wasted any time going after the “leakers” in the White House, even sending out a tweet Wednesday night basically calling out Trump’s chief of staff, Reince Priebus. The tweet, which has since been deleted, said, “In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept #swamp @Reince45.

Cantone as the Mooch

Because the Mooch has already made so much noise in his short time as communications director, it was just a matter of time before someone impersonated him. Enter Mario Cantone. The comedian appeared on Comedy Central’s The President Show as the Mooch, who Cantone resembles.

Cantone perfectly captured the Mooch’s disdain for Priebus when he said, “I’m going to fire so many people. I don’t know who it’s going to be, Reince, but I’m going to get to the bottom of the leakage in the White House. You hear me, Reince?”

Between ill-advised tweet rants and attacking supposed allies, Scaramucci seems to be the perfect communications director for Trump. It was obvious on the show when “Trump” (Anthony Atamanuik) said, “America is a sewer full of cesspools overflowing with carnage,” and Cantone followed that up with, “It’s terrible! I don’t like it. Correction, I love it!” And it was, clearly, a match made in heaven, because “Trump” responded, “I love it too! I can barely tell where you end and I start.”

The President Show airs Thursdays at 11:30 p.m. on Comedy Central
