The HBO talk show host spent half the episode "Last Week Tonight" on Sunday evening explaining the results of the Mueller report. Oliver's discussion was the latest in what the series called "Stupid Watergate." Basically, Watergate, but if Nixon had been kicked in the head by a goat and also if that goat had been the White House Chief of Staff, "Oliver said.
Oliver stated that after the Mueller report was published," a lot was in it "including Trump, who said that the appointment of Müller would be the end of the presidency and that he" f * *** d. "
" And while we obviously do not know whether Trump will face the impact of this report, I would like to point out the moment he says, "This is the end of my presidency. 39; & # 39 ;, said Oliver.
Oliver said the show could not cover the entire 448-page report, but wanted to focus on what he said, two key factors that saved the president: incompetence in conspiring with Russia and disobedience to the judiciary. [1
For reasons of justice, Oliver said the presidential saving grace might have been that his staff refused to obey his orders.
"The news that the president has ordered subordinates to do things that could be an obstacle, and then they simply ignored him, is both calming and terrifying," said Oliver.
Oliver also proposed Attorney General William Barrett's press conference and a summary of the report before publication.
"It's as if Barr summarized the" Twilight "novels as" a girl in Florida goes to the third base with a Wookie. "No, no, that does not happen," quipped Oliver. "I'm not even sure that we read the same underlying material."
The host concluded that the report's findings are "very depressing" and much that the public still has due to editorial and other research do not know. However, he said that the report, which highlighted Russia's interference, was ultimately a good thing.
"The point is that the insight that the Müller report delivers is infinitely better than the alternative," said Oliver. "Because this knowledge can inform the Congress and the voters one and a half years in particular."
