"Sex and the City" star Mario Cantone impersonated Anthony Scaramucci on the latest episode of Comedy Central's "The President Show," ripping into Scaramucci's now infamous lewd interview with The New Yorker and U.S. President Donald Trump's harsh treatment of his White House staff.

Comedy Central has been rough on Scaramucci since he became White House communications director, labeling him a "human pinky ring" - an apparent comment on his Italian heritage and stylish persona.

The sketch (be warned it has graphic language) skewered both Scaramucci and Trump for flip-flopping on gun control, abortion rights and gay marriage.

Cantone's impression was rife with profanity, joking, "There is an old Italian expression my mother used to use when somebody hurt her. She'd say, 'Stick the umbrella up my a-- but don't open it.'"
