The Late Show reflects on Anthony Scaramucci's White House tenure

Anthony Scaramucci speaks on the phone at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland

My best guess is that for a lot of modern American conservatives, manliness - or the traditional idea of what it means to be a man (brash, bold and in control, a la Trump and "The Mooch") - wins out against everything else. Bank of America Merrill Lynch told investment bankers to stop working on transactions with HNA for now amid growing concerns regarding the group's debt levels and ownership structure, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg News last month.

And after realizing that "the Mooch" follows Kimmel on Twitter, the host said he was able to snag an interview with the former White House aide. You get the sense that they counted on having the Mooch around a little longer to inspire sketches. He has been fired by the President, giving him the record of the shortest tenure in history as communications director. "We as a nation love that you're not P.C. [politically correct] and, or fake". He took a look back at some of Priebus' finer moments in office, including the times he flattered Trump in a Cabinet meeting and fought relentlessly about the size of the president's inauguration crowd, as well as the time the president reportedly asked him to kill a fly in the Oval Office. This admiration for moneyed male meanness is at the heart of the ethos of the Proud Boys, the white nationalist group founded by media entrepreneur Gavin McInnes, whose uniform is a Fred Perry polo, a shirt that typically goes for about a hundred dollars Canadian. His use of "we" makes clear what side he was on. However, Ball's lawyer disputes this claim, saying that Scaramucci's political ambitions "have nothing to with her filing for divorce".

And even though Trump tweeted Monday morning that there was "no WH chaos!", Scaramucci was axed just six hours later.

Sen. Lindsey Graham: Trump Says War With North Korea an Option
But he made it clear that there was no possibility of talks if North Korea did not abandon its nuclear programme. Though the boast drew a rebuke from Beijing , Trump said China has not done enough to rein in North Korea.

Fallon also called attention to reports that Scaramucci recently missed the birth of his own son while at an event with Trump.

That's got to sting being in the position of Anthony Scaramucci. He decided to endorse Scott Walker, for the ten minutes in which Walker was a frontrunner. Not only will it endear him to the public in a way that swearing at journalists won't, it will be a chance for him to find love after separating from his wife, and the betrayals and backstabbings will be a walk in the park after 10 days in the Trump administration. It was the second marriage for both. Barely got to the White House. But Bloomberg found unanimity among business appraisers that the EBITDA multiple may be double what a comparable fund of funds manager fetches - especially because it has been losing assets.
