HBO host John Oliver ridiculed President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani after an epic gaffe on Sunday’s “Meet the Press.”
In an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Giuliani confessed that the Trump campaign attempted to conspire with the Russians to garner dirt on Hillary Clinton. When Todd pointed out the blunder, Giuliani engaged in a legal somersault, proclaiming “truth isn’t truth.”
It prompted Oliver to label the Trump lawyer as “a one-man legal improve troupe” and the “Ken Bone of 9/11.“
“Don’t do this to me,” Giuliani said as Todd did a face-palm live on television.
“Don’t do this to you?!” Oliver exclaimed. “You just said ‘truth isn’t truth!’ That is not acceptable from a president’s lawyer. It’s barely acceptable from a sophomore philosophy major who just tried Molly for the first time. ‘Truth isn’t truth, man and toes are just feet fingers. I feel warm.'”
Oliver explained that in fairness to Giuliani the gaffe wasn’t even the worst thing that he said in the interview. He then played a clip of Giuliani confessing to conspiracy.
“What is Giuliani doing?!” Oliver exclaimed. “And why does the White House keep letting him go on TV, because at this rate Trump is going to wind up behind bars with Giuliani visiting him saying, ‘Don’t worry, Donald! Prison isn’t prison!'”
