On Last Week Tonight, Oliver reported a range of recent Trump debates, as the president 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 commentaries about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not assembling his criteria, flustering 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 disintegration of western civilization, we begin tonight with Donald Trump, the Donald Trump Jr of American chairpeople, Oliver began. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from operate, which makes, more importantly, America may be get a 17 -day vacation from Trump.
Although while hes there he will still have access to the nuclear codes and, as bad, wifi, so dont loosen, never tighten, your life is still a torture chamber of fear and panic, 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 humbling as many American institutions as he perhaps could.
Oliver then recapped some of the controversies that engulfed the administration last week, including the presidents lie that the chairperson of the Boy Scouts announced him to praise his speech at the jamboree, and a report in Golf magazine that Trump called the White House a dump.
Yes, it seems a little curious to call an objectively grand residence a dump, Oliver supposed, also noting that Trump refuted the storey in a tweet. Until you remember that Trumps experience 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 expressed the view that floor stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine beings, which is actually a jolly bright mode to get Trump to confirm it: approximate the size of his gathering and just wait for him to rectify you, Oliver joked before lampooning the presidents preoccupation with crowd size.
I didnt call the White House a dump in front of eight or nine beings; I said it in front of hundreds of thousands of beings, and all of them were tens, and all of them enjoy it and the next day everyone called me and told me no one has in the past done a better profession of calling the White House a dump.
Oliver continued: I dont want to give you the impression it was only Trump in the White House attacking cornerstones of America this week. It was also Stephen Miller, plan 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 drastic immigration greenback, which would slash legal migration in half over a decade and move citizenship contingent upon points 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 added later, making its content unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean to say it is worthless, Oliver responded. Some of the one thing ever cleared were changed partway through. Did you know, for example, there was a epoch when the Fast& Furious movies didnt have The Rock in them? Its true, and they sucked. Thats why they contributed 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 director occupation, taking over for the dearly departed Mooch, Oliver suggested, continuing to delve into Millers controversial history.
Hes 31 human years old, Oliver joked. Hes the same age as the Olsen twinneds. 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 presented an old-time video of Miller campaigning for student government; in it, he says he is tired of being asked to pick up his own litter, adding that there are plenty of janitors to do it for us.
He is genuinely one of the most uprising humen, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver suggested. In a path, 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 pick a fight with a fucking statue.
