What do Wonder Woman, rotting corpses, and bad male-enhancement ads each have to do with the buffoonery of President Trump? Seems like those threads would be hard to weave together in a monologue.

Click play, and watch a master at work.

In a triumphant return to HBO, comedian John Oliver rips Trump a new fault line while excoriating the President’s negative influence on planet Earth. Prior to a hilarious montage of Trump impersonators from around the world, Oliver shares wisdom from Africans on why The Donald’s “shithole” remarks are not only odious, but ironic considering where he’s ultimately headed.

The complaint — filed by the 65 Project, an organization of lawyers seeking to hold attorneys accountable for lending a hand in pro-Trump efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 elections — called for an examination of Cruz’s conduct in the weeks before Election Day in 2020 and on January 6, 2021, the day of the Capitol insurrection.
