Since Donald Trump made his decision to run for president, late night comedians have made their fair share of jokes at his expense. John Oliver decided to continue that trend on his HBO show “Last Week Tonight” on Sunday.
Oliver opened up the show by stating, “Surprise, everyone! Do you remember normal weeks? Because I don’t. I don’t remember what they felt like.”
Oliver started his hilarious rant by saying, “Trump is so desperate to appear dominant, he will rush to take the credit for anything, no matter how bad it is. If you wanted him to confess to murder, all a lawyer would have to say is, ‘Your honor, the killer could not possibly have been Donald Trump, it must have been someone much stronger and smarter and with a much hotter daughter,’ and before they finished that sentence, Trump would be yelling, ‘I did it, it was me, lock me up! Lock me up!”
Oliver continued to tear apart the President, pointing out his hypocrisy throughout the entire process of firing FBI Director James Comey. Oliver ended his rant with three questions that many Americans are certainly asking themselves right now. He asked, “One, can he really be this stupid? Two, does he really think we as a country are this stupid? And three, are we as a country this stupid? And it’s entirely possible the answer to all three questions are ‘yes.’”
John Oliver brought up many valid points throughout his show, and appears determined to point out all President Trump’s lies throughout his time in office. The president must be held accountable, and it is refreshing to see influential members of society looking out for the American people.
