John Oliver spent a better part of his ”Last Week Tonight” show bashing Donald Trump, though he also reserved a line for solving the Melania mystery.
President Donald Trump met last week with a high-ranking North Korean Government official who brought to him an ironically over-sized letter from North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Trump was clearly thrilled to see the letter as shown by the wide smile he had on his face while he had his picture taken with the North Korean emissary.
However, it seems clear to us that John Oliver, host of the ‘’Last Week Tonight’’ show, wasn’t a fan of the whole episode.
“This week, the June 12th summit between the U.S. and North Korea was suddenly back on after Trump met with a North Korean envoy who’d brought him this gigantic, comically-oversized letter from Kim Jong Un,” was how John Oliver started bashing Trump.
“And as if smiling while holding a letter from a dictator were not enough of a propaganda coup for North Korea, the president then raved about the letter to the press.” Said Oliver.
Following their meeting, President Trump told the press: ‘“It was a very interesting letter… At some point, it may be appropriate… I’ll be able to give it to you, maybe.”
Trump’s strange reaction to receiving the letter drew a vicious response from Oliver, who said that Trump would be an even worse Moses than he is as a President.
“As infuriating a president as Trump is, he would be an even worse Moses,’’ quipped Oliver, before adding ‘’Oh, wouldn’t you like to see what’s on these tablets? How much? How much? Maybe I’ll show you later, if you’re lucky.”
And then, just eight minutes after Trump had surmised that the letter was very interesting, he made a startling confession, ‘’ “I haven’t seen the letter yet… I may be in for a big surprise, folks!” That means that Trump was lying earlier.
“Yeah, you might though!” is how Oliver responded to Trump’s ‘’surprise line’’. “Because you just agreed to a summit without reading the contents of the letter that supposedly convinced you to do it.’’
‘’So, worse-case scenario, it’s a declaration of war; best-case scenario, it reads, ‘Donald, It’s me. I have run away to North Korea and I’m never coming back. Melania, [your third wife].’’
