Scaramucci was at the White House on Monday and was seen by reporters in the back of the room after Kelly was sworn in.
Still, some police unions and other advocacy groups such as Blue Lives Matter dismissed Trump's remarks with the equivalent of, "Hey, lighten up; it was a joke".
Stephen Colbert is "a broken man".
