On Last-place Week Tonight, Oliver reported a range of recent Trump controversies, including the presidents Boy Scouts speech and the proposed migration bill
On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took is targeted at the Trump administration for its continued, self-generated chaos, addressing the presidents mentions about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not fulfilling his standards, humiliating leaked telephone call transcripts with other world leaders and advisor Stephen Millers contentious exchange with members of the press regarding the administrations proposed immigration legislation.
Much like the break-up of western civilization, we begin tonight with Donald Trump, the Donald Trump Jr of American chairmen, Oliver began. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from work, which entails, more importantly, America may be going a 17 -day vacation from Trump.
Although while hes there he will still have access to the nuclear codes and, even worse, wifi, so dont loosen, never relax, your life is still a torture chamber of fright and panic, the emcee continued. Trump was leaving at the end of what the White House has seen American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by demeaning as numerous American institutions as he possibly could.
Oliver then recapped some of the disagreements that engulfed the concerned authorities last week, including the presidents lie that the chairperson of the Boy scout called him to praise his speech at the festivity, and a report in Golf magazine that Trump called the White House a dump.
Yes, it seems a little curious to call an objectively grandiose residency a drop, Oliver said, also noting that Trump refuted the story in a tweet. Until you remember that Trumps appreciation in interior design is a cross between C-3POs colon and a museum where no one has in the past learned anything.
The journalist who wrote that legend held by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine people, which is actually a reasonably bright direction to get Trump to confirm it: think the size of his bunch and just wait for him to chasten you, Oliver joked before lampooning the presidents preoccupation with crowd size.
I didnt call the White House a drop in front of eight or nine beings; I said it in front of hundreds of thousands of parties, and all of them were tens, and all of them enjoy it and the next day everyone called me and told me “no ones ever” done a better chore of calling the White House a dump.
Oliver sustained: I dont want to give you the impression it was only Trump in the White House criticizing cornerstones of America this week. It was also Stephen Miller, program adviser and Vitamin D-deficient minion. It is genuinely hard to find a photograph of him not looking like a minion.
Miller spoke to the press this week about the White House support for a stringent in-migration invoice, which would lash legal migration in half over a decade and see citizenship contingent on influences such as English ability, education levels and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then demo the now-notorious footage of Millers heated exchange with Jim Acosta, CNNs White House correspondent, about the Emma Lazarus poem on the Statue of Liberty; Miller said the lyric was contributed afterwards, yielding its meaning unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean to say it is worthless, Oliver greeted. Some of best available thoughts ever drew were changed partway through. Did you know, for instance, there was a hour when the Fast& Furious movies didnt have The Rock in them? Its true, and they sucked. Thats why they included the fucking Rock.
That clearly wasnt the greatest piece of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House is now considering him for the communications head occupation, taking over for the dearly differed Mooch, Oliver said, continuing to delve into Millers controversial history.
Hes 31 human years old, Oliver joked. Hes the same age as the Olsen twins. The part is Miller is so young that there are actually videos on the internet of what he was like in high school.
Oliver then pictured an age-old video of Miller campaigning for student authority; in it, he says he is tired of being asked to pick up his own rubbish, adding that there are plenty of custodians to do it for us.
He is truly one of the most insurrection humans, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver said. In a channel, there is no more fitting spokesperson for the Trump administration than an entitled, elitist asshole who refuses to take responsibility for the messes he makes and who can somehow are to be able to picking a fight with a fucking statue.
