Seth Meyers Uses Rooster Sound Effects to Censor Scaramucci’s Vulgar Tirade Against Bannon and Priebus

The White House’s new director of communications, Anthony Scaramucci, has been doing quite a lot of communicating lately. In an obscenity-filled, late-night telephone call with New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza, Scaramucci said that Trump Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was a “fucking paranoid schizophrenic,” who had “cock-blocked” him, and alleged he was the leaker Lizza refused to give up as a source for a previous article. The Mooch (his actual nickname for himself) also said that, unlike Steve Bannon, he was “not trying to suck my own cock.” While these quotes are just ripe for late-night television, they do present a problem: How do you make fun of Scaramucci’s Veep-like dialogue without the censors over at the FCC fining you into oblivion? Thankfully, Seth Meyers managed to creatively address this issue by with the help of a very fitting rooster sound effect.
