On Last Week Tonight, Oliver plowed a variety of recent Trump contentions, as the president Boy Scouts speech and the proposed immigration bill
On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took aim at the Trump administration for its sustained, self-generated chaos, addressing the presidents commentaries about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not gratifying his touchstones, flustering leaked phone call transcripts with other world leaders and advisor Stephen Millers contentious exchange with members of the press regarding the administrations meant 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 cultivate, which necessitates, 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, as bad, wifi, so dont tighten, never relax, your life is still a torture chamber of panic and panic, the emcee resumed. Trump was leaving at the end of what the White House has deemed American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by demean as numerous American institutions as he maybe could.
Oliver then recapped some of the disputes that engulfed the administration last week, including the presidents lie that the president of the Boy Scouts called 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 odd to call an objectively grand residence a dump, Oliver pronounced, also noting that Trump refuted the legend in a tweet. Until you remember that Trumps taste in interior design is a cross between C-3POs colon and a museum where “no ones ever” learned anything.
The journalist who wrote that story stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine people, which is actually a moderately brilliant acces to get Trump to confirm it: gues the size of his audience and just wait for him to correct you, Oliver joked before teasing the presidents preoccupation with mob 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 loved it and the next day everyone called me and told me no one has ever done a better job of announcing 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 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 providing assistance to a drastic immigration bill, which would trounce legal immigration in half over a decade and shape citizenship contingent upon factors 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 reporter, about the Emma Lazarus poem on the Statue of Liberty; Miller said the poem was added later, furnish its content unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean it is worthless, Oliver greeted. Some of very best thoughts ever prepared were changed partway through. Did you know, for instance, there was a time 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 bit of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House had considered him for the communications director activity, taking over for the dearly varied Mooch, Oliver remarked, proceeding to delve into Millers contentious history.
Hes 31 human years old, Oliver joked. Hes the same age as the Olsen twins. The object 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 old-fashioned video of Miller campaigning for student authority; 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 truly one of the most revolting humans, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver responded. 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 mess he makes and who can somehow manage to pick a fight with a fucking statue.
