On Last-place Week Tonight, Oliver considered a variety of recent Trump polemics, by the president Boy Scouts speech and the proposed migration bill
On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took aim at the Trump administration for its continued, self-generated chaos, addressing the presidents mentions about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not fulfilling his standards, embarrassing revealed phone call records 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 chairpeople, Oliver began. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from drive, which means, 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 worse, wifi, so dont loosen, never tighten, your life is still a torture chamber of horror and terror, the multitude continued. Trump was leaving at the end of what the White House has regarded American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by humbling as numerous American institutions as he perhaps could.
Oliver then recapped some of the contentions that engulfed the administration last week, by the president lie that the president of the Boy Scouts 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 little peculiar to call an objectively grand palace a dump, Oliver said, also noting that Trump refuted the narration 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 fib stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine parties, which is actually a somewhat bright behavior to get Trump to confirm it: judgment the dimensions of the his bunch and just wait for him to redress 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 parties; I said it in front of hundreds of thousands of people, and all of them were tens, and all of them loved it and the next day everyone called me and told me “no ones ever” done a better job of announcing the White House a dump.
Oliver resumed: 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, programme 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 punitive migration statute, which would trounce legal immigration in half over a decade and represent citizenship contingent on factors such as English ability, educational level and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then demo 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 lent afterward, making its message unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean to say it is worthless, Oliver reacted. Some of the best things ever formed were changed partway through. Did you know, for example, there was a era when the Fast& Furious movies didnt have The Rock in them? Its genuine, and they sucked. Thats why they included the fucking Rock.
That clearly wasnt the greatest slouse of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House is now considering him for the communications chairman undertaking, taking over for the dearly departed Mooch, Oliver said, proceeding to delve into Millers controversial history.
Hes 31 human years old, Oliver joked. Hes the same age as the Olsen twinneds. The spot 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 age-old video of Miller campaigning for student authority; in it, he says he is tired of being asked to pick up his own junk, adding that there are plenty of janitors to do it for us.
He is truly one of “the worlds largest” revolt humans, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver said. In a room, 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 collect a fight with a fucking statue.
