After a three-month hiatus, John Oliver is finally back on our screens with more biting commentary about President Trump, a.k.a. “the two words that will never sound normal together no matter how often you say them.”
His show, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, returned to HBO last night to take on Trump’s warped reality as well as an ingenious way of educating him without him realizing.
Wasting no time in catching up with the state of affairs, Oliver pokes fun at the new president’s monumental struggle with the truth, in particular when he claimed that it didn’t rain during his inauguration speech, even though video clearly shows that it did. “That’s where we are currently at,” said Oliver. “We have a president capable of standing in the rain and saying it was a sunny day.”
Rather than just merely mock Trump, however, Oliver also wants to help and educate him to be a better president (kind of.) Oliver and his team have created a series of educational commercials that will run on channels that Trump watches, including Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC.
The ads are filled with helpful little lessons about the important things all powerful politicians should know, like the name of one of his daughters, the Geneva Convention, and the three parts of the nuclear triad. Watch the full diatribe above, and watch out for the commercials airing in the D.C. area.
