Comedian John Oliver, host of the HBO show "Last Week Tonight"

Adjust Comment Print

John Oliver was aware that when he announced that he was dedicating the main story of Last Week Tonight to the topic of kidney dialysis, he was risking the entire audience lunging for the remote and switching to "literally anything else".

Donald Trump (l.) said he planned on firing James Comey (r.) regardless of what his staff recommended. But ever since Donald Trump was elected, Oliver's focus has been forced to shift to, basically, whatever insane thing Trump did in the preceding week, devoting at least a few minutes to breaking it all down, if not giving it full features.

In the same interview, Trump also admitted that the Russian Federation investigation was part of the decision, Oliver commenting: "What are you doing?" Because I don't! Everything about Comey's firing was unusual.

Oliver believes what's important here is not just that Comey confirmed before his firing that there's an ongoing FBI investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.

In Last Week Tonight which has just screened in the US, Oliver got his right of reply. If you said he fired Comey because he's investigating Russian Federation, I'd believe you. If you wanted him to confess to murder, all a lawyer would have to say is: 'Your honor, the killer could not have possibly been Donald Trump. "Because I don't. I don't remember what they felt like". It was me! Lock me up!

"You really wanna do this Bill?" he asked on Sunday night. Oliver said. "Two, does he really think we as a country are this stupid? And it's entirely possible the answer to all three questions are yes".

But Oliver does know that it's time to Congress to step up and do something about this mess. "There is now way those conversations went down in that manner".

Pointing to Trump's admission of firing Comey due to the Russian Federation investigation, and his subsequent Twitter threat to Comey about these "tapes", Oliver is now telling Congress to get involved. "Apparently, no part of P90X targets the backbone", he adds, taking a dig at Ryan's fitness regimen.
