On Sunday night, John Oliver dedicated the first installment of his Emmy Winner program Last Week Tonight President Trump's all-too-predictable decision to attack the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas himself.
The HBO presenter threw a clip of Trump from a hospital in El Paso, which Trump allegedly visited to greet the victims of the shootings. However, he was captured on a video in which he bragged about his crowd at a previous rally in El Paso.
"I was here three months ago, we gave a speech and we had a stage – what was the name of the arena?" Trump said in the clip. "That was a lot and we had twice the number outside. And then you had that crazy beto. Beto had about 400 people in a parking lot.
Yeesh . "Look, we all know how much Trump struggles to do the bare necessities to become president, but it's still shocking how much he struggles to do the bare necessities to be a damned man," exclaimed Oliver. "Just think of the thought process that took place there: he visited a hospital with victims of a mass shooting and thought, remember the time when I was the center of attention and it was better? And then he thought, do you think anyone remembers? Then he thought I should remind her, right? Then he thought, great idea! Then he thought, thanks! Then he thought, Ivanka! Then he thought, no time! And then he said it and was happy about how it sounded. "
But Oliver urged his audience to keep an eye on the ball:" Trump's pathological lack of empathy should not distract us from this. The most important question at the moment is what action ̵
He then turned his anger on the National Rifle Association (NRA), which has been in financial turmoil for a year – or as Oliver put it – "is currently in the middle of eternal shit."  "It all began last year when federal investigators began investigating whether a Russian agent [Maria Butina] had used the NRA to infiltrate Republican politics – which is bad enough. But then New York State AG started checking their exemption status because the NRA is technically non-profit, and it turns out that there were some very suspicious issues, "the comedian said.
Yes, NRA chief Wayne LaPierre is accused of paying membership fees for fancy personal expenses, including nearly $ 300,000 for designer clothing, luxury travel, etc. According to reports, he wanted the organization to give him a mansion in Texas for $ 6 million US dollars (at nine) bought bathrooms!) After the parkland scuttle security fears.
"Wow. Leaving aside the head of the NRA and claiming he needs a villa because other people were shot, the housing question is ridiculous, "said Oliver.
Oliver then decided to dance on the grave of NRATV, the strange propaganda TV channel of the Gun lobby group, which imploded earlier this year.
"Obviously, the death of NRATV is a tragedy – thoughts and prayers to all those involved – but the bottom line is that for the first time in a while, NRBs are not looking so well anymore, could this gun control finally happen? Mitch McConnell has indicated that action should be taken against background checks, but he has also refused to recall the Senate, and he hopes that pressure will ease after the session is over, "Oliver said.
" In the meantime the President has declared that he is prepared to oppose the NRA, but he is also 1) a liar; and 2) likely to identify with an organization that has plunged into colossal debt, has troubling relations with Russia and has been linked to crappy television programs and very bad taste, "he added.
"I think what I'm really saying here is that a weakened NRA is nice – sure – but the only way things really will change is if the legislature continues to feel the pressure … something to do. "
