Every week, it seems like we’ve reached a new low in the presidential race, until the latest Donald Trump scandal brings the bar even lower.
And after the most recent scandal reported on Friday, John Oliver wants us to know “we have sunk so low, we are breaking through the earth’s crust, where drowning in hot magma will come as sweet relief.”
The Last Week Tonight Host is of course referring to leaked audio from 2005 in which Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women to then-Access Hollywood cohost Billy Bush, which was a heated topic of discussion during the second presidential debate.
While Oliver’s HBO show taped ahead of Sunday’s showdown, he viciously weighed in on Trump’s lewd conversation — and called out the GOP for waiting so long to condemn the controversial candidate!
After remarking on Trump’s heinous comments about grabbing women “by the p*ssy,” Oliver laid into Bush, who giggled at the icky remarks before telling the “hot as sh*t” actress they had just talked about to hug first Trump, then “the Bushy.”
Oliver was quick to point out Bush’s display of douchebaggery, quipping:
“And incidentally, f*ck Billy Bush, f*ck him, f*ck him├óΓé¼┬ª it is gross enough that he is serving as Donald Trump’s hug pimp, but he said ├óΓé¼╦£how about a little hug for the Bushy’ which, if it is not already, it should be a felony offense in all 50 states.”
The grilling didn’t stop there — Oliver then reamed Trump’s half-baked apology video and called out Republicans who condemned Trump for the lewd tape but still refused to withdraw support for the candidate (*COUGH* Paul Ryan *COUGH*).
Ch-ch-check out clips from Last Week Tonight (below) to hear the host compare Trump to a final boss in a video game!
