On Last Week Tonight, Oliver dealt a range of recent Trump contentions, as the president Boy Scouts speech and the proposed in-migration bill
On Last-place 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 gratifying his standards, humiliating leaked 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 civilization, we begin tonight with Donald Trump, the Donald Trump Jr of American presidents, Oliver began. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from toil, which represents, 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 relax, never loosen, your life is still a torture chamber of dread and terror, the emcee resumed. Trump was leaving at the end of what the White House has seen American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by demeaning as many American institutions as he possibly could.
Oliver then recapped some of the controversies that engulfed the administration last week, as the president lie that the president of the Boy Scouts 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 bit peculiar to call an objectively splendid mansion a drop, Oliver said, also noting that Trump refuted the floor in a tweet. Until you remember that Trumps savor in interior design is a cross between C-3POs colon and a museum where no one has ever learned anything.
The journalist who wrote that storey stood by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine parties, which is actually a pretty brilliant mode to get Trump to confirm it: gues the size of his crowd and just wait for him to chasten 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 parties, 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 place 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, program 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 proposal, which would lash legal immigration in half over a decade and realise citizenship contingent upon parts such as English ability, educational levels and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then showed 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 contributed afterward, rendering its content unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean to say it is worthless, Oliver reacted. Some of the best acts ever obliged were changed partway through. Did you know, for instance, there was a period 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 part of communication from Stephen Miller, so naturally the White House is now considering him for the communications director errand, taking over for the affectionately departed Mooch, Oliver said, following to delve into Millers contentious 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 proved an old video of Miller campaigning for student government; 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 genuinely one of “the worlds largest” revolt humen, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver said. In a space, 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 who can somehow are to be able to picking a fight with a fucking statue.
