Colin Jost and Michael Che took some time off from their summer vacations for a Thursday night Saturday Night Live weekday version of Weekend Update. And because they’ve been away for a while, they updated everyone about the recent White House staff carousel. Jost said, “I don’t know if you guys noticed, but there were some minor staffing changes at the White House. Priebus is out, Spicer is out; Scaramucci barely got the tip in.”

Hader as ‘The Mooch’

Even though Scaramucci has been away from the White House as long as he was in it, SNL wasn’t going to pass up an opportunity to mock him. So they brought back Bill Hader to capture the essence of “The Mooch.” Hader Facetimed the Weekend Update anchors in the middle of their story and said, “I heard you two nutless liberal asswipes mentioned my name, and when I hear my name three times, I appear like a goomba Beetlejuice.”

While Scaramucci’s time in the White House was short-lived, Hader’s Mooch said he wouldn’t change a thing. “The Mooch has no regrets, baby. All I did was sell my company, miss the birth of my child, and ruin my entire reputation, all to be king of Idiot Mountain for 11 days,” said Hader.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. on NBCWatch Saturday Night Live on Yahoo View, available for iOS and Android.
