Calling Donald Trump a “self-serving half-man,” John Oliver slammed the Republican nominee for his comments regarding Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the Muslim military parents who appeared during the final night of the Democratic convention.

Sunday’s episode of Last Week Tonight Oliver juxtaposed a clip from Khizr Khan’s speech with a recent Trump interview, in which The Donald suggested that the Khans’ loss of their army captain son was akin to his efforts building skyscrapers.

“We may be on the brink of electing such a damaged, sociopathic narcissist that the simple presidential duty of comforting the families of fallen soldiers may actually be beyond his capabilities,” Oliver said of Trump.

The GOP candidate has been drawing serious criticism after an interview with George Stephanopoulos this weekend (included in Oliver’s show), during which he suggested that Ghazala Khan was not allowed to speak because of her religion.

That particular comment led Oliver to wonder if Trump would even be able to comfort the families of fallen soldiers—even though the late-night host “genuinely did not think that was part of the job that someone could be bad at.”

10 Responses to Watch: John Oliver Blasts Trump’s ‘Damaged, Sociopathic’ Comments On The Khan Family

  1. So John Oliver, a comedian, who has never amounted to being much of a comedian, while searching for something to try and save his never has been career, made meaningless comments about Trump. For the 3 people who were watching, why should anyone with intelligence care what Mr. Oliver said?

  2. I don’t think there’s an ounce of compassion in this man’s entire body! To even consider having him there to comfort families of fallen soldiers would be a disaster! He would end up making it all about him and not about the soldiers or their families!!

  3. There’s no such thing as “…Donald may be able to change”.
    Donald has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he has a “black” heart, and any silly notion that “maybe he will change” is just whistling Dixie.
    The GOP is stuck with the grandest mistake ever made in US history. Otto the Goat’s silly visual of Trump’s rear-end is symbolic of how the world perceives Drumpf and the GOP.

    Only Trump’s loyal followers remain in the dark, blind as bats, and behaving like the hippopotamus that titillates Otto to no end. (That’s Otto’s only way of getting excited).
