Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update returned for a special prime time "Summer Edition" on Thursday night, and they were able to debut a new character: Anthony Scaramucci, everyone's favorite hedge fund founder-turned-White House communications director for a week and a half.

"I heard you two nutless liberal ass wipes mention my name earlier and when I hear my name three times, I appear like a Goomba Beetlejuice," Hader as the Mooch proclaimed to Che and co-host Colin Jost.
He also insisted that "Everybody loves the Mooch. You know how you miss me. I'm like human cocaine. You got a little bump of me, I made you feel excited, and I was out of your system too quick. Now that I'm gone, you're all depressed and edgy and you're trying to figure out how to score some more Scaramucci!"

Alex Moffatt and Mikey Day also appeared on the show, as Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. Junior trying to explain the whole "nothing burger" meeting with Russians at Trump Tower, referring to the subpoena as "some peanuts":
