There are now two Anthony Scaramucci impersonators making the rounds on late night TV, but the real Mooch has a favorite.

“Mario! He understands!” Scaramucci told the Post, praising comedian Mario Cantone — also an Italian-American — who portrayed Scaramucci on Comedy Central’s “The President Show.”

Meanwhile, Saturday Night Live’s Bill Hader debuted his impression of Scaramucci Thursday on SNL’s “Weekend Update: Summer Edition.”

Scaramucci has become fodder for late night comedians since his time as White House communications director came to an abrupt end after only 10 days, following the release of an expletive-ridden interview with The New Yorker and his divorce from wife Deidre Ball.

But Scaramucci appears to be taking his newfound infamy in stride.

“I can take a punch, a joke and myself unseriously. I love the antics, but I am short all of the French kissing!!” Scaramucci, a known supporter of gay rights, joked.

On “The President Show,” Cantone and President Trump-impersonator Anthony Atamanuik engaged in a long lip-lock.

Meanwhile, the real Scaramucci created some controversy by double-booking his first post White House interview. CBS’ Stephen Colbert announced his show would be first on Monday, but ABC’s George Stephanopoulos got him on Sunday.

“You can expect me to be me. Candid and authentic. No script, no talking points,” Scaramucci said.
