On Last-place Week Tonight, Oliver dealt a range of recent Trump disagreements, 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 remarks about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not matching his criteria, embarrassing disclosed phone call records with other world leaders and advisor Stephen Millers contentious exchange of membership 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 chairmen, Oliver began. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from work, which represents, 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 loosen, your life is still a torture chamber of fear and anxiety, the emcee resumed. Trump was leaving at the end of what the White House has regarded American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by demeaning as numerous American institutions as he maybe could.
Oliver then recapped some of the debates 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 celebration, and a report in Golf magazine that Trump called the White House a dump.
Yes, it seems a little strange to call an objectively grand residency a drop, Oliver added, also noting that Trump refuted the story in a tweet. Until you remember that Trumps penchant in interior design is a cross between C-3POs colon and a museum where nobody has in the past learned anything.
The journalist who wrote that story stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine parties, which is actually a reasonably bright channel to get Trump to confirm it: forecast the size of his mob and just wait for him to redress you, Oliver joked before mocking the presidents preoccupation with crowd size.
I didnt call the White House a dump in front of eight or nine people; 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 one has in the past done a better job of announcing the White House a dump.
Oliver continued: I dont want to give you the impression it was only Trump in the White House assaulting cornerstones of America this week. It was also Stephen Miller, program 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 drastic immigration statute, which would lash legal migration in half over a decade and represent citizenship contingent upon factors such as English ability, educational level and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then proved 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 content unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean it is worthless, Oliver answered. Some of the best things ever induced were changed partway through. Did you know, for example, there was a occasion 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 segment of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House is now considering him for the communications chairman undertaking, taking over for the affectionately differed Mooch, Oliver spoke, proceeding to delve into Millers contentious 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 demo an old-time video of Miller campaigning for student authority; in it, he says he is tired of being asked to pick up his own garbage, adding that there are plenty of porters to do it for us.
He is genuinely one of “the worlds largest” revolt humen, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver alleged. In a way, 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 can somehow are to be able to pick a fight with a fucking statue.
