John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” featured MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace in his “And Now This” segment Sunday, collecting the many times the former George W. Bush aide wanted to curse about President Donald Trump on her show.
“And now this,” the segment began. “MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace has a real f*cking problem with this president.”
Wallace, who’s never at a loss for a daily takedown of Trump’s White House, typically makes it through her frustration by saying “bleep hole,” “you know bleep off,” “full of bleep,” and other swears.
But this week, Fox News went after Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a decorated Iraq War veteran who still serves in the armed forces, and Wallace called them all “chickensh*t.”
“Except those people aren’t chickensh*t like the three of you,” Wallace said of the Fox News panel. “They know he passed a background check that the president’s daughter and son-in-law didn’t.”

New Zealand restricts entry for Kiwis escaping coronavirus
New Zealand began restricting the return of its own nationals Tuesday as the country faces an accelerating influx of citizens fleeing coronavirus outbreaks overseas and limited quarantine facilities.
National carrier Air New Zealand put a three-week freeze on new bookings and the government is in talks with other airlines to limit capacity, officials said.
New Zealand has gone 67 days without any cases of coronavirus in the community and its 22 active cases are all in managed quarantine facilities for New Zealanders flocking home from worsening epidemics elsewhere.
There are nearly 6,000 people currently undergoing the mandatory 14-day quarantine in the facilities and another 3,500 are due to arrive this week.
‘Do your part’: WWII film ‘Greyhound’ teaches virus lesson, says Hanks
Tom Hanks is "heartbroken" that his World War II thriller must skip the big screen due to the pandemic -- but hopes it can still teach audiences at home a thing or two about acting decently in a global crisis.
"Greyhound," out on Apple TV+ Friday, was written by and stars Hanks as a rookie captain escorting a convoy of Allied ships as they cross the freezing North Atlantic, hounded by Nazi U-boats.
The movie follows a destroyer's terrified young crew crossing the treacherous ocean beyond the range of air cover, bound together in life-and-death responsibility for protecting the fleet and each other.
Johnny Depp libel trial set to start in London
A libel trial was due to begin on Tuesday between Hollywood actor Johnny Depp and a British tabloid newspaper over claims that he was violent to his former wife, Amber Heard.
Depp, 57, is suing News Group Newspapers (NGN), publisher of The Sun, and its executive editor Dan Wootton for an April 2018 article which referred to him as a "wife beater".
The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star strenuously denies the accusation.
The case, which was delayed because of the coronavirus outbreak, will be heard over 15 days at the High Court in London.
The couple settled a divorce out of court in 2017. She donated a settlement of $7 million (£5.6 million, 6.2 million euros) to charity.
