On Last-place Week Tonight, Oliver embraced a variety of recent Trump arguings, 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 comments about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not convening his guidelines, embarrassing leaked 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 disintegration of western civilization, we begin tonight with Donald Trump, the Donald Trump Jr of American presidents, Oliver embarked. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from duty, which symbolizes, even 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 fear and terror, the emcee 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 numerous American institutions as he possibly could.
Oliver then recapped some of the polemics that engulfed the administration last week, including the presidents lie that the president of the Boy Scouts announced 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 peculiar to call an objectively magnificent residence a dump, Oliver added, also noting that Trump refuted the legend in a tweet. Until you remember that Trumps delicacy in interior design is a cross between C-3POs colon and a museum where “no ones ever” learned anything.
The journalist who expressed the view that fib stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine people, which is actually a moderately bright course to get Trump to confirm it: forecast the size of his bunch and just wait for him to chastise you, Oliver joked before lampooning 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 loved it and the next day everyone called me and told me no one has ever done a better job of calling the White House a dump.
Oliver sustained: 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, plan consultant and Vitamin D-deficient minion. It is genuinely hard to find photographs of him not looking like a minion.
Miller spoke to the press this week about the White House support for a punitive in-migration greenback, which would trounce legal migration in half over a decade and become citizenship contingent on factors such as English ability, education levels and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then pictured 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 subsequently, rendering its letter unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean to say it is worthless, Oliver answered. Some of the one thing ever stimulated were changed partway through. Did you know, for example, there was a age when the Fast& Furious movies didnt have The Rock in them? Its true-life, and they sucked. Thats why they lent the fucking Rock.
That clearly wasnt the greatest piece of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House is now considering him for the communications administrator activity, taking over for the dearly started Mooch, Oliver pronounced, continuing to delve into Millers controversial history.
Hes 31 human years old, Oliver joked. Hes the same age as the Olsen twins. The point is Miller is so young that there are actually videos on the internet of what he was like in high school.
Oliver then demonstrated 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 rubbish, adding that there are plenty of porters to do it for us.
He is genuinely one of the most rebellion humans, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver replied. In a lane, 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 are in a position somehow manage to select a fight with a fucking statue.
