As has been his custom since returning from hiatus, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver tackled his favorite subject: the collapsing campaign of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
The HBO host pointed out that Trump news has swallowed up all the media attention — some of which might have been devoted to the Wikileaks releases — as damning revelations about abusive encounters with women have become a daily occurrence for the embattled nominee.
“It is hard to focus on any of that when the man who could be our next president is now one unearthed 90’s era Teen People interview away from being on a sex offender registry,” he quipped.
Oliver took particular delight that Trump now claims that the “shackles are off” since he feels the GOP is no longer behind him.
“Yes, the shackles are off,” he remarked. “Which is actually an apt metaphor as it calls to mind both Frankenstein’s monster and a rabid dog.”
Noting that Trump has a penchant for saying or tweeting crazy statements, Oliver suggested between the time he taped the show and it was broadcast, it was likely Trump would have said ‘The border wall would be constructed from Rosie O’Donnell’s bones,’ or ‘It’s not rape if it happened on a yacht.'”
