During Sunday night’s episode of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” host John Oliver enthusiastically criticized Republican front-runner Donald Trump.
“Our main story tonight, and I can’t believe I’m saying this, is Donald Trump,” he began. “And I say that knowing that every time his name is said out loud, he has a shattering orgasm.”
Oliver noted that “if you are someone who is sick of the party establishment, he might seem like a protest candidate with some attractive qualities.”
“Donald Trump can seem appealing, until you take a closer look. Much like the lunch buffet at a strip club, or the NFL or having a pet chimpanzee,” he added. “Sure, it seems fun, but someday, Coco’s going to tear your fucking limbs off.”
Oliver later made fun of Trump’s ancestral surname Drumpf, which Gwenda Blair wrote in “The Trumps: Three Generations That Built An Empire” was changed to Trump in the 17th century.
“So if you are thinking of voting for Donald Trump, the charismatic guy promising to make America great again, stop and take a moment to imagine how you would feel if you just met a guy named Donald Drumpf, a litigious serial liar with a string of broken business ventures and the support of a former Klan leader who he can’t decide whether or not to condemn,” the HBO host said. “Would you think he would make a good president, or is the spell now somewhat broken?”
“Mr. Drumpf, I await your lawsuit in the morning,” Oliver said as he closed.
