John Oliver is back! and on Sunday night he didn’t waste any time tearing down President Donald Trump, his cabinet picks, his inability to shake hands, and his love of fiction, opinion, and belief, instead anything resembling fact.
“Trump’s relationship with the truth is going to be of profound importance going forward.”
‘How did we get a pathological liar in the White House,” Oliver asked. After he was sworn in as POTUS, Trump exaggerated the size of the crowd, and even about the weather, saying god had forbidden it to rain during his inaugural address. “It did rain while he was speaking,” Oliver said.
“That is where we are currently at: a President standing in the rain and saying it was a sunny day.”
Oliver listed some of Trump’s “well-documented “40-year history of bullshit”:
“He lied about being invited on this show, about the ratings for Celebrity Apprentice. He pretended to be his own publicist. Even his building, Trump Tower, is not as big as he says it is.”
But, while those lies are “almost charming,” it was far less charming, Oliver said, “when he started lying about [Obama’s] birth certificate.”
