On Last Week Tonight, Oliver crossed a range of recent Trump debates, as the president Boy Scouts speech and the proposed immigration bill
On Last-place Week Tonight, John Oliver took is targeted at the Trump administration for its continued, self-generated chaos, addressing the presidents comments about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not congregating his criteria, humiliating leaked telephone 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 civilisation, we begin tonight with Donald Trump, the Donald Trump Jr of American chairwomen, Oliver began. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from project, which represents, more importantly, America may be getting a 17 -day vacation from Trump.
Although while hes there he will still have access to the nuclear codes and, even worse, wifi, so dont tighten, never relax, your life is still a torture chamber of panic and anxiety, the emcee continued. Trump was leaving at the end of what the White House has seen American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by humiliating as numerous American institutions as he perhaps 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 celebration, and a report in Golf magazine that Trump called the White House a dump.
Yes, it seems a little odd to call an objectively splendid residence a drop, Oliver said, also noting that Trump refuted the fib 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 narration stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine people, which is actually a pretty bright channel to get Trump to confirm it: judgment the dimensions of the his crowd and just wait for him to chastise you, Oliver joked before teasing the presidents preoccupation with crowd size.
I didnt call the White House a drop 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 ever done a better responsibility of calling the White House a dump.
Oliver continued: 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 adviser and Vitamin D-deficient minion. It is genuinely hard to find a photograph of him not looking like a minion.
Miller spoke to the press this week about the White House support for a stringent immigration legislation, which would lash legal immigration in half over a decade and attain citizenship contingent on parts such as English ability, educational level and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then presented 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 added later, interpreting its letter unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean it is worthless, Oliver answered. Some of the best situations ever established were changed partway through. Did you know, for example, there was a time when the Fast& Furious movies didnt have The Rock in them? Its true-life, and they sucked. Thats why they contributed the fucking Rock.
That clearly wasnt the greatest section of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House is now considering him for the communications chairman errand, taking over for the affectionately differed Mooch, Oliver said, proceeding to delve into Millers contentious history.
Hes 31 human years old, Oliver joked. Hes the same age as the Olsen twins. The time 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-fashioned video of Miller campaigning for student authority; in it, he says he is tired of asks to pick up his own garbage, adding that there are plenty of custodians to do it for us.
He is truly one of “the worlds largest” uprising humans, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver said. 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 messes he makes and who can somehow are to be able to select a fight with a fucking statue.
