On Last Week Tonight, Oliver extended a range of recent Trump disputes, as 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 remarks about his speech to the Boy Scouts jamboree, the White House not encountering his standards, humiliating revealed 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 chairpeople, Oliver began. Trump is taking a 17 -day vacation from cultivate, which entails, more importantly, America may be going 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 horror and terror, the legion continued. Trump was leaving at the end of what the White House has deemed American Dream week, which Trump chose to mark by humbling as many American institutions as he maybe could.
Oliver then recapped some of the arguings 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 celebration, and a report in Golf magazine that Trump called the White House a dump.
Yes, it seems a little curious to call an objectively grand residence a drop, Oliver said, also noting that Trump refuted the narrative in a tweet. Until you remember that Trumps flavor in interior design is a cross between C-3POs colon and a museum where no one has ever learned anything.
The journalist who expressed the view that legend put by it, stating that Trump said this in front of eight or nine people, which is actually a quite brilliant lane to get Trump to confirm it: judgment the dimensions of the his mob and just wait for him to rectify you, Oliver joked before taunting 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 parties, and all of them were tens, and all of them enjoy it and the next day everyone called me and told me “no ones ever” done a better occupation of announcing the White House a dump.
Oliver sustained: I dont want to give you the impression it was only Trump in the White House assaulting 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 punitive migration legislation, which would slash legal migration in half over a decade and manufacture citizenship contingent upon parts such as English ability, education levels and job skills, Oliver explained.
He then established 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 poem was included afterward, rendering its content unimportant.
Just because it wasnt part of the original does not mean it is worthless, Oliver reacted. Some of best available situations ever obliged 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 added 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 head occupation, taking over for the affectionately departed 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 spot 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-time video of Miller campaigning for student government; in it, he says he is tired of being asked to pick up his own trash, adding that there are plenty of custodians to do it for us.
He is rightfully one of the most insurrection humen, parentheses minions, I have ever seen, Oliver said. In a path, there is no more fitting spokesman 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 are to be able to select a fight with a fucking statue.
