Late show talk hosts all had something to say after Donald Trump was elected president, but John Oliver took things to the next level on the Nov. 13 episode of ‘Last Week Tonight’ — he ranted for the entirety of the show’s 30 minute, 2016 finale about how horrible this election is for America! Watch here.
It’s no surprise that John Oliver commented on Donald Trump’s presidency in the first post-election episode of Last Week Tonight on Nov. 13 — but we didn’t expect he’d dedicate his entire 30 minutes to the subject! John is absolutely horrified that Trump was elected as our next president, calling the Republican candidate “abnormal” and a “racist.”
The talk show host referred to Trump’s policies as “the To Do list on Satan’s refrigerator,” and shot down those who suggested that he might not have meant everything he proposed while campaigning. “That leaves us with two bad options,” he explained. “Either we just elected a president who didn’t mean a single word he said…or we elected one who did.” Burn.
More than once in his rant, John made sure to point out that many of the things Donald is doing are abnormal, and warned his viewers to keep reminding themselves of that, rather than getting “complacent.” “A Klan-backed misogynist internet troll will deliver the next State of the Union Address, and that is not normal,” he pointed out.
With appearances from stars like Amy Schumer, Kathy Griffin and more, John made it pretty clear that he feels this year was “uncommonly s***y” for America. There’s so much content in this monologue, that you really need to just watch it for yourself, and you can check out the whole thing above.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of John’s rant against Trump? Was it totally incredible…or completely out of line?
