When beleaguered (to use a fave word of the president’s) White House communications director Anthony “the Mooch” Scaramucci was relieved of his duties this week after a mere 10 days on the job, our thoughts immediately turned to Mario Cantone. The comic actor, an Italian-American like Scaramucci, seemed a natural to portray the lively financier-turned-politician and knocked it out of the park with his debut on Comedy Central’s The President Show. But everything seems temporary with the current presidential administration and so Cantone’s run has come to an end.
Cantone, though, is a show business veteran and knows the importance of a sassy send off. For his final bow, he gets in a few jabs at Team Trump.
Watch his swan song below.
