On Last Week Tonight, Oliver considered a range of recent Trump controversies, by the president 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 observations about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not fulfilling his criteria, flustering divulged telephone call records with other world leaders and advisor Stephen Millers contentious exchange with the representatives of the press regarding the administrations proposed immigration legislation.
Much like the break-up of western civilisation, we begin tonight with Donald Trump, the Donald Trump Jr of American chairwomen, Oliver began. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from toil, which entails, even more importantly, America may be get 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 tighten, your life is still a torture chamber of fright and terror, the legion resumed. Trump was leaving at the end of what the White House has regarded American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by humiliating as numerous American institutions as he perhaps could.
Oliver then recapped some of the arguings that engulfed the concerned authorities last week, including the presidents lie that the president of the Boy scout called him to praise his speech at the celebration, and a report in Golf magazine that Trump called the White House a dump.
Yes, it seems a bit curious to call an objectively grand palace a dump, Oliver mentioned, also noting that Trump refuted the narration in a tweet. Until you remember that Trumps appreciation in interior design is a cross between C-3POs colon and a museum where “no ones ever” learned anything.
The journalist who wrote that narrative stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine people, which is actually a jolly bright channel to get Trump to confirm it: think the dimensions of the his gathering and just wait for him to correct you, Oliver joked before teasing the presidents preoccupation with crowd size.
I didnt call the White House a drop 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 enjoy it and the next day everyone called me and told me “no ones ever” done a better errand of calling the White House a dump.
Oliver prolonged: 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, policy consultant 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 drastic immigration invoice, which would trounce legal immigration in half over a decade and acquire citizenship contingent upon factors such as English ability, education levels and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then established 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 added later, making its content unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean it is worthless, Oliver answered. Some of the best things ever drew were changed partway through. Did you know, for example, there was a hour when the Fast& Furious movies didnt have The Rock in them? Its true-blue, and they sucked. Thats why they lent the fucking Rock.
That clearly wasnt the greatest segment of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House is now considering him for the communications administrator activity, taken away from for the dearly varied Mooch, Oliver pronounced, following to delve into Millers contentious 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 depicted 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 trash, adding that there are plenty of custodians to do it for us.
He is rightfully one of “the worlds largest” insurrection humen, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver supposed. In a style, there is no more fitting spokesman for the Trump administration than an entitled, elitist asshole who refuses to take responsibility for the messes he makes and who can somehow manage to collect a fight with a fucking statue.
