Four days into his tenure as White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci already seems more at home at the podium than Sean Spicer ever did. In addition to being smooth and telegenic, The Mooch has clearly done his homework on his new boss, as The Daily Show highlighted last night in a pretty remarkable video montage.

Scaramucci's body language at the podium mirrors Trump's to a degree that is both hilarious and surely beyond coincidence. After all, we now know from The New York Times' Glenn Thrush that the decision to shut off cameras in the White House briefing room came directly from Spicer, who wanted to avoid being on camera so that his boss couldn't watch his briefings and yell at him later. Scaramucci is playing to an audience of one here. And given that he spent a large chunk of his weekend quietly deleting anti-Trump tweets, mirroring might be a great way to rapidly build some trust with his new commander in chief.
