On Last Week Tonight, Oliver dealt a variety of recent Trump contentions, by the president Boy Scouts speech and the proposed migration bill
On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took be 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 filling his touchstones, flustering disclosed 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 presidents, Oliver began. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from duty, which means, most 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, even worse, wifi, so dont relax, never relax, your life is still a torture chamber of fear and terror, the emcee continued. Trump was leaving following the conclusion of what the White House has regarded American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by humbling as many American institutions as he possibly could.
Oliver then recapped some of the arguings that engulfed the government departments last week, by the president lie that the chairman 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 little peculiar to call an objectively splendid residence a dump, 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 one has ever learned anything.
The journalist who was also expressed that storey stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine parties, which is actually a reasonably brilliant lane to get Trump to confirm it: think the dimensions of the his crowd and just wait for him to rectify 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 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 continued: 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 adviser 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 stringent immigration statute, which would trounce legal immigration in half over a decade and move citizenship contingent on factors such as English ability, education levels and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then evidenced 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 included afterward, rendering its message unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not aim it is worthless, Oliver responded. Some of the best things ever shaped 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 true, and they sucked. Thats why they included the fucking Rock.
That clearly wasnt the greatest patch of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House is now considering him for the communications head errand, taking over for the dearly differed Mooch, Oliver said, continuing to delve into Millers contentious history.
Hes 31 human years old, Oliver joked. Hes the same age as the Olsen twinneds. The part 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 authority; in it, he says he is tired of being asked to pick up his own litter, adding that there are plenty of custodians to do it for us.
He is truly one of the most insurrection humans, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver said. In a room, there is no more fitting spokesman for the Trump administration than an entitled, elitist asshole who refuses to take responsibility for the messes he makes and that we are able to somehow was also able to pick a fight with a fucking statue.
