Comedian and talk show host John Oliver is planning on buying advertisements warning President Donald Trump from pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal during episodes of Sean Hannity’s show this week.

The “Last Week Tonight” star told viewers Sunday that he views the Iran deal as an existential crisis to the world and that getting rid of it, as Trump has suggested in the past, could lead to war.

As a solution, Oliver and his team produced a video staring the “Catheter Cowboy,” which are slated to air during Fox News’ “Hannity” at 9 PM.

“Hey, there, Donald, sorry to interrupt your supper,” the cowboy says. “I’m here to tell you the Iran deal may not be perfect, but it helps restrict Iran’s ability to start making a bomb for at least 10 years.”

“If you blow up the deal, that turns into zero years. And if I’ve learned one thing from all these years of cowboying and cathing, it’s that zero is way less than 10.”

The advertisement was originally shown during Oliver’s Sunday show, which was almost entirely devoted to countering the president’s criticisms of the deal.
