Colbert Does Scaramucci Parody of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody

Stephen Colbert's "Bohemian Rhapsody" Parody Is the Best Way to Bid Farewell to Anthony Scaramucci

When Anthony Scaramucci was removed from his position as White House communications director — a mere 10 days after he took it — the internet had a lot of feelings. While some immediately started offering up humorous examples of things that have lasted longer than his tenure (see: an avocado, a manicure, and Kim Kardashian's marriage), others were pretty concerned with how his quick dismissal bodes for the remainder of Donald Trump's presidency. Needless to say, his quickly extinguished term was just too rich for late-night hosts to resist dissecting — with a comedic spin, naturally.

Though many TV comedians tackled this hot topic during their segments on July 31, we must admit that Stephen Colbert took the cake. He started by faux-solemnly looking into the camera and saying, "I come to you a broken man because just this afternoon, I was shocked by this breaking nooch," referencing Scaramucci's informal nickname, The Mooch. He then launched into a hilarious rendition of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," set around Scaramucci's dismissal. "Mama, I just got canned . . . Barely got to the White House . . . Said some dumb stuff, now I'm out," he belted out while still keeping his same "serious" demeanor. Watch the oh-so-entertaining clip above to see what else Colbert had to say (and sing) about The Mooch.
