John Oliver's Donald Trump Segment Was Everything

John Oliver's Donald Trump Segment Was Everything

Oliver took Trump's image apart step by step, first citing Politifact, which checked 77 of the Republican presidential candidate's statements and rated 76 per cent of them as "varying degrees of false".

He also criticized Trump's Twitter feed, how he puts his name on everything he sells, and that not everything he'ss old has been great - i.e., Trump University, Trump Steaks, et al.

And it seems Oliver didn't have to dig very deep to find a way to do this.

"Oliver discusses everything from Trumps initial refusal to disavow KKK headsman David Duke's endorsement, his seemingly overstated wealth and massive flip-flopping, to his family's real last name 'Drumpf".

Sony Is Killing the PlayStation TV in Japan
Recently, the tech giant Sony announced thatit will stop producing the fairly popular PlayStation Vita TV in Japan. The device, however, failed to really take off, mainly because many games are not compatible with it.


Oliver had to look no further than his own show, which Donald Trump claims to have been invited on, which he says is definitely not the case. He even has merchandise, with baseball caps that say Make Donald Drumpf Again.

While numerous comedians and political analysts have attempted to explain that case against Trump, HBO's John Oliver may have dropped the mic during Sunday's installment of Last Week Tonight. "You will remember that date because it's the one time-travellers from the future will come back to to try and stop the whole thing from happening", Oliver said. Just looking at him, if Drumpf were a noun but you didn't know what it was, Donald Trump would probably be a prime example.

But, according to the program, Trump has never been asked to make an appearance. "He's been pro choice and pro life; he's been for and against assault weapon bans; in favor of both bringing in Syrian refugees and deporting them out of the country".

After former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke endorsed Trump, the candidate claimed not to know who he was instead of just disavowing him - even though he'd previously been quoted calling Duke a racist and a bigot. Would you think he would make a good president, or is the spell now somewhat broken? It's quite amusing that it may have taken a British comedian to finally enlighten the masses as to the huge mess of a politician Donald Trump actually is. "Think of him as something else".
