On Last-place Week Tonight, Oliver enveloped a range of recent Trump controversies, including the presidents Boy Scouts speech and the proposed immigration bill
On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took aim at the Trump administration for its continued, self-generated chaos, addressing the presidents explains about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not matching his touchstones, humiliating disclosed phone 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 embarked. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from toil, which represents, more importantly, America may be going a 17 -day vacation from Trump.
Although while hes there he will still have access to the nuclear systems and, even worse, wifi, so dont tighten, never loosen, your life is still a torture chamber of anxiety and terror, the emcee prolonged. Trump was leaving at the end of what the White House has seen American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by demeaning as many 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 Scouts 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 bit curious to call an objectively grandiose residency a drop, Oliver said, also noting that Trump refuted the fib in a tweet. Until you remember that Trumps penchant 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 narration put by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine parties, which is actually a pretty bright behavior to get Trump to confirm it: estimation the size of his gang and just wait for him to redress you, Oliver joked before scorning the presidents preoccupation with crowd size.
I didnt call the White House a dump in front of eight or nine parties; I said it in front of hundreds of thousands of people, and all of them were tens, and all of them loved it and the next day everyone called me and told me “no ones ever” done a better job of announcing the White House a dump.
Oliver persisted: 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, programme consultant 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 migration proposal, which would slash legal immigration in half over a decade and do citizenship contingent on points such as English ability, education levels and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then pictured 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 included afterward, interpreting its message unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean to say it is worthless, Oliver reacted. Some of the best stuffs ever represented were changed partway through. Did you know, for instance, there was a time when the Fast& Furious movies didnt have The Rock in them? Its true-life, and they sucked. Thats why they added the fucking Rock.
That clearly wasnt the greatest article of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House is now considering him for the communications director undertaking, taking over for the affectionately differed Mooch, Oliver said, continuing to delve into Millers contentious history.
Hes 31 human years old, Oliver joked. Hes the same age as the Olsen twins. The point is Miller is so young that there are actually videos on the internet of what he was like in high school.
Oliver then showed 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 scrap, adding that there are plenty of custodians to do it for us.
He is absolutely one of “the worlds largest” uprising humen, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver said. In a practice, there is no more fitting spokesperson for the Trump administration than an entitled, elitist asshole who refuses to take responsibility for the mess he makes and who are in a position somehow manage to pick a fight with a fucking statue.
