On Last Week Tonight, Oliver clothed a range of recent Trump disputes, including the presidents Boy Scouts speech and the proposed immigration bill
On Last-place Week Tonight, John Oliver took aim at the Trump administration for its continued, self-generated chaos, addressing the presidents statements about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not convening his criteria, humiliating revealed 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 disintegration of western civilization, we begin tonight with Donald Trump, the Donald Trump Jr of American chairwomen, Oliver inaugurated. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from project, which symbolizes, even 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, as bad, wifi, so dont relax, never tighten, 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 humbling as numerous American institutions as he maybe could.
Oliver then recapped some of the disagreements that engulfed the administration last week, as the president lie that the president of the Boy scout announced 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 magnificent palace a dump, Oliver suggested, also noting that Trump refuted the fib 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 tale stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine people, which is actually a pretty brilliant lane to get Trump to confirm it: appraisal the size of his mob and just wait for him to rectify you, Oliver joked before taunting 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 persisted: 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, 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 draconian migration legislation, which would reduce legal immigration in half over a decade and stir citizenship contingent on points such as English ability, education levels and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then evidenced 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 poem was lent later, interpreting its letter unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean it is worthless, Oliver greeted. Some of the one thing ever constructed were changed partway through. Did you know, for instance, there was a age 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 article of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House is now considering him for the communications head place, taking over for the affectionately started Mooch, Oliver did, proceeding to delve into Millers controversial history.
Hes 31 human years old, Oliver joked. Hes the same age as the Olsen twinneds. The stage is Miller is so young that there are actually videos on the internet of what he was like in high school.
Oliver then indicated an old-fashioned video of Miller campaigning for student government; in it, he says he is tired of being asked to pick up his own junk, adding that there are plenty of porters to do it for us.
He is truly one of the most revolting humen, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver said. In a behavior, 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 are in a position somehow manage to pick a fight with a fucking statue.
