On Last-place Week Tonight, Oliver embraced a variety of recent Trump arguings, including the presidents Boy Scouts speech and the proposed in-migration 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 assembling his criteria, embarrassing divulged telephone 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 break-up of western civilization, we begin tonight with Donald Trump, the Donald Trump Jr of American presidents, Oliver began. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from production, which entails, more importantly, America may be going a 17 -day vacation from Trump.
Although while hes there he will still have access to the nuclear systems and, even more severe, wifi, so dont relax, never relax, your life is still a torture chamber of dread and hysterium, the host persisted. Trump was leaving at the end of what the White House has deemed American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by demeaning as many American institutions as he maybe could.
Oliver then recapped some of the arguings that engulfed the government departments last week, including the presidents 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 bit odd to call an objectively grand mansion a drop, Oliver said, also noting that Trump refuted the tale in a tweet. Until you remember that Trumps savor in interior design is a cross between C-3POs colon and a museum where “no ones ever” learned anything.
The journalist who wrote that narration stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine parties, which is actually a quite brilliant lane to get Trump to confirm it: gues the size of his army 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 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 one has ever done a better activity of announcing the White House a dump.
Oliver sustained: 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, 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 migration statute, which would slash legal migration in half over a decade and obligate citizenship contingent on factors such as English ability, educational level and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then indicated 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 eventually, rendering its word unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean to say it is worthless, Oliver responded. Some of the best circumstances ever manufactured were changed partway through. Did you know, for instance, there was a era 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 article of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House is now considering him for the communications head enterprise, taking over for the affectionately departed Mooch, Oliver said, continuing to delve into Millers controversial history.
Hes 31 human years old, Oliver joked. Hes the same age as the Olsen twinneds. The detail is Miller is so young that there are actually videos on the internet of what he was like in high school.
Oliver then proved an old-time 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 custodians to do it for us.
He is absolutely one of the most rebellion humen, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver said. In a style, 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 are in a position somehow are to be able to pick a fight with a fucking statue.
