John Oliver Dismantles Trump's Reaction to Comey Testimony

Galeno Paniagua | 12 Junio, 2017, 18:29

On Sunday night, HBO's John Oliver opened up this week's edition of "Last Week Tonight" with an update on the probes into President Donald Trump and his campaign staff, which he dubbed "Stupid Watergate" a few weeks ago.

Oliver began the episode by noting that his segment on the Comey hearings-in which fired FBI Director James Comey testified about his interactions with the Trump administration-would constitute a continuation of his show's theme known as "Stupid Watergate."Stupid Watergate" is a term Oliver has used over the past few months to describe the investigation into the Trump campaign's alleged Russian Federation ties, noting that it has "all the potential ramifications of Watergate but where everyone involved is stupid and bad at everything".

In addition to his analysis about what former FBI Director James Comey did and did not say, he was struck by how the various Fox New personalities reacted.

One of the many areas Comey discussed further during the testimonial was a meeting with Trump where the President asked multiple times for loyalty.

Oliver mentioned Trump's press conference following the Comey testimony, in which he offered to testify himself. "I miss the integrity and emotional intelligence of the apes'".

"All in all, Comey's testimony appears pretty damaging for the White House", Oliver said, even showing clips of various Fox News personalities - usually staunch defenders of this POTUS - agreeing with his assessment.

He also said the Maute Group plotted to also attack Iligan City and kill as many people as they can. For his part, Duterte also said he "never approached America" for help.

Judge Andrew Napolitano: "I am concerned after hearing Jim Comey today".

Said Oliver:" Just think about what he's saying there: "Trump is essentially claiming that he's been vindicated by testimony that he's claiming is false. It will be interesting to watch Oliver's continued coverage of "stupid Watergate" as the investigation into the Trump campaign's alleged Russian Federation ties continues to unfold.

And I think it's nice that they're Muslims - it's not everybody in the Muslim community carrying out these attacks. There are good and bad people in every religion, and I wish people could realise that".
