Trevor Noah’s side-by-side of Trump and Anthony Scaramucci is spot-on


Newly appointed White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci has only been in his new job for a few days, and although he’s already bungled some aspects of it, he’s at least got the hand gestures down.

It’s fairly normal to talk with your hands, but The Daily Show has already noticed that after just a few days on the job, Scaramucci is already emulating Donald Trump with sweeping hand movements. He’s a quick learner.

The hand gesture supercut is part of a larger segment from Trevor Noah and The Daily Show on Scaramucci—or as he’s called by his friends, the Mooch. Like others in the Trump administration, Scaramucci has offered his boss fawning praise when he knows Trump is watching, deleted his old anti-Trump tweets, directly contradicted other Trump officials on Sunday morning news shows, and even has a link to Goldman Sachs.

He’ll fit right in.
