On Last Week Tonight, Oliver comprised a range of recent Trump polemics, as the president Boy Scouts speech and the proposed immigration bill
On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took is targeted at the Trump administration for its continued, self-generated chaos, addressing the presidents remarks about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not encountering his touchstones, flustering revealed telephone call records 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 civilisation, we begin tonight with Donald Trump, the Donald Trump Jr of American presidents, Oliver inaugurated. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from handiwork, which signifies, even more importantly, America may be getting 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 loosen, never loosen, your life is still a torture chamber of fright and hysterium, the host resumed. Trump was leaving at the end of what the White House has seen American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by humiliating as many American institutions as he maybe could.
Oliver then recapped some of the polemics that engulfed the concerned authorities last week, as the president lie that the president 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 odd to call an objectively splendid palace a drop, Oliver responded, also noting that Trump refuted the floor in a tweet. Until you remember that Trumps flavor in interior design is a cross between C-3POs colon and a museum where nobody has in the past learned anything.
The journalist who expressed the view that storey stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine people, which is actually a jolly bright room to get Trump to confirm it: approximate the dimensions of the 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 drop 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 loved it and the next day everyone called me and told me no one has ever done a better chore of announcing the White House a dump.
Oliver resumed: 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 adviser and Vitamin D-deficient minion. It is genuinely hard to find a photo of him not looking like a minion.
Miller spoke to the press this week about the White House support for a stringent immigration statute, which would flog legal immigration in half over a decade and manufacture citizenship contingent on parts such as English ability, education levels and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then testified 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 song was lent later, rendering its message unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean to say it is worthless, Oliver reacted. Some of the one thing ever obliged were changed partway through. Did you know, for example, there was a season when the Fast& Furious movies didnt have The Rock in them? Its true, and they sucked. Thats why they added the fucking Rock.
That clearly wasnt the greatest patch of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House is now considering him for the communications administrator job, taking over for the dearly departed Mooch, Oliver told, continuing to delve into Millers contentious history.
Hes 31 human years old, Oliver joked. Hes the same age as the Olsen twinneds. The extent 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 government; in it, he says he is tired of being asked to pick up his own scum, adding that there are plenty of porters to do it for us.
He is genuinely one of the most revolting humen, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver announced. In a course, 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.
