According to Seth Meyers, Anthony Scaramucci has learned a valuable lesson: It’s not a good sign if your last name is longer than your term of employment.

During Monday’s Late Night, the host weighed in on the wild last few weeks in the White House, including Reince Priebus being let go, the failed health care vote, and Monday’s departure of Scaramucci, described by Meyers as “114-pounds of alfredo sauce, hair gel, and rage.”

“Trump made a choice and he chose Scaramucci, and we know Trump is nothing if not loyal, which means the Mooch is here to stay,” he said before news of the White House communications director’s ouster played. “Scaramucci’s last name is longer than his tenure. Even at his last job, Trump only fired one person a week. At this point, getting fired is part of orientation.”

Meyers was far from alone in the late-night reactions to the Mooch’s departure, with Stephen Colbert and The Daily Show also weighing in.
