Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Sunday revealed his nickname for Vice President Mike Pence — "46."

As in, the 46th president of the United States.

"I genuinely care for the vice president, I think he's an extremely loyal person … I'm a huge fan," Scaramucci said during an interview on Periscope TV. "I'm probably not allowed to say this, but I do have a nickname for the vice president … it's 46. So that'll give you a sense for how much I like the vice president."

Scaramucci didn't go into details about when he thought Pence would succeed President Donald Trump, the nation's 45th president.

Scaramucci said Pence also was the first person he apologized to in the West Wing after the now infamous interview with Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker, during which Scaramucci was taped making derogatory and profane remarks about ousted chief of staff Reince Priebus and current chief strategist Stephen Bannon.

"Because the vice president is a person I never heard say any words like that in a private or public setting. He was the first person I went to apologize to, and being a gracious human being, he accepted my apology," Scaramucci said.

Scaramucci lasted just 10 days as the White House's second communications director, ousted after John Kelly became Trump's new chief of staff to replace Priebus.

After initially saying he was going to regress from the limelight in the aftermath of his scorched-earth interview, Scaramucci has been making the rounds on late-night TV — including an upcoming appearance on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" on Monday night — as well as ABC on Sunday and the Periscope TV interview.
