The Last Week Tonight host has criticised the president for his response to recent mass shootings
John Oliver has criticised Donald Trumps behaviour after recent mass shooting, calling out his pathological lack of empathy.
On his HBO show Last Week Tonight, the British comic said that Trumps visit to a hospital in El Paso went exactly as well as youd expect after footage surfaced of the president bragging about the size of his crowd at a Texas rally.
We all know how Trump struggles to do the bare minimum of being a president but its still genuinely shocking just how much he struggles to do the bare minimum of being a fucking person, Oliver said.
He continued to break down the unhinged thought process that led to this happening. He visited a hospital filled with victims of a mass shooting and thought to himself Remember that other time when I was the centre of attention and it was better and then he thought Do you think anyone else remembers that? and then he thought I should remind them right? then he thought Great idea the he thought Thank you then he thought Ivanka then he thought No time! and then he said it and he was happy with how it sounded, he detailed.
He then criticised his pathological lack of empathy before speaking about the problems arising from the Republican partys decision to do nothing about gun control. When Ohio governor Mike DeWine was addressing a crowd last week, they started to chant do something in response.
You know youre doing a bad job when people are yelling do something at you, he said. Not even try a different position or like that but to the left but just do something, the universal complaint for men putting in less than zero percent everywhere.
He then spoke about the NRA and how the scandal involving a Russian using them to infiltrate the Republican party was comfortably bad enough but how some very suspicious expenditures from the companys CEO Wayne LaPierre have been creating even more controversy.
The NRA is tax-exempt since its a non-profit but LaPierre was found to have expensed almost $300,000 in a designer clothes store. Wayne LaPierre appears to only own a single suit! he exclaimed.
Oliver continued: If youre going to blow that much money on clothes, at least make more interesting choices than dressing like the head coach of the opposing team in a Mighty Ducks movie.
He also spoke about the collapse of NRA TV, a network he has previously explored on his show. The death of NRA TV is a tragedy thoughts and prayers to all those affected, he joked.
Oliver added: A weakened NRA is nice, sure, but the only way things are really to change is if lawmakers continue to feel pressure and, if I can quote that Ohio crowd, do something.
