John Oliver broke down all the catastrophes plaguing President Donald Trump 2020 re-election campaign, with a special focus on the efforts led by Rudy Giuliani to spread conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden.

On HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” on Sunday, Oliver looked at the efforts to smear Joe Biden over his son Hunter.

“If you’re trying to figure out what the f*ck they’re talking about there,” he said, referring to the Fox News view, “it revolves around emails and text messages supposedly recovered from a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden.”

“But there are a lot of red flags here,” Oliver noted. “Including the fact the NY Post story that broke was reportedly written mostly by a staff reporter who refused to put his name on it and the laptop’s conduit to the press is Rudy Giuliani, who intelligence officials flagged last year to be the target of a Russian intelligence operation to feed misinformation to Trump.”

“And Giuliani’s ability to spot fraudulent information is at best, not great,” he noted. “He’s so technologically illiterate he has butt-dialed a reporter and left and accidental voice mail — more than once. And he recently accidentally uploaded video of himself affecting a stereotypical Chinese accent and just this week it emerged he has a cameo in the upcoming Borat film.”

After making a cousin marriage joke, Oliver returned to the subject of the conspiracy theory.

“But the point is, any information that Giuliani is passing on should be treated with extreme caution,” he counseled.

One of them has been described as a “sadistic, shapeshifting, apocalyptic, cosmic entity.”

The other spelled his name differently and wasn’t a registered Republican.

Paul Gosar is no relation of Gozer the Gozerian. But he’s doing his best movie-villain schtick as part of a cottage industry of loyal subjects vying to carry on the manic mantle of Trumpism.

'So much racism'

Acting Senate Intelligence Chairman Marco Rubio suggested he will vote against all of the cabinet picks President-elect Joe Biden announced on Monday. The Florida Republican, an expected 2024 presidential hopeful, appeared especially disturbed by the educational backgrounds, and some are saying the racial and ethnic backgrounds, of Biden's diverse and experienced team.

"Biden’s cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools,have strong resumes,attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline," Rubio tweeted (lack of proper spacing and punctuation are original to his tweet.) "I support American greatness And I have no interest in returning to the 'normal' that left us dependent on China"
