On Last Week Tonight, Oliver considered 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 commentaries about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not gratifying his guidelines, flustering divulged phone 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 civilisation, we begin tonight with Donald Trump, the Donald Trump Jr of American presidents, Oliver began. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from wreak, 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 codes and, even worse, wifi, so dont loosen, never relax, your life is still a torture chamber of fear and terror, the emcee sustained. Trump was leaving at the end of what the White House has seen American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by demeaning as numerous American institutions as he perhaps could.
Oliver then recapped some of the disagreements 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 jamboree, and a report in Golf magazine that Trump called the White House a dump.
Yes, it seems a little strange to call an objectively splendid residence a drop, Oliver said, also noting that Trump refuted the legend in a tweet. Until you remember that Trumps appreciation 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 floor stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine parties, which is actually a quite brilliant room to get Trump to confirm it: forecast the size of his gang and just wait for him to chasten you, Oliver joked before mocking 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 one has ever done a better chore of calling the White House a dump.
Oliver prolonged: 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 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 draconian immigration proposal, which would flog legal migration in half over a decade and establish citizenship contingent upon ingredients such as English ability, education levels and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then demonstrated 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 lyric was lent eventually, yielding its message unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean it is worthless, Oliver answered. Some of the one thing ever represented were changed partway through. Did you know, for example, there was a meter when the Fast& Furious movies didnt have The Rock in them? Its true-life, and they sucked. Thats why they included 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 job, taking over for the dearly started Mooch, Oliver said, continuing to delve into Millers controversial 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 pictured an age-old video of Miller campaigning for student government; in it, he says he is tired of being asked to pick up his own scrap, adding that there are plenty of custodians to do it for us.
He is rightfully one of the most uprising humans, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver said. 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 messes he makes and who are in a position somehow are to be able to collect a fight with a fucking statue.
