As John Oliver informs us in the latest edition of Last Week Tonight, some patriotic Americans are so disturbed by Donald Trump’s presidency that they literally cannot rest until he is impeached. That was why family members recently told two men on their deathbeds that impeachment had begun — thus allowing them to pass away peacefully.

Well, what about the rest of us? While we wait for House Democrats to get their act together, Oliver wants to make sure that everyone actually understands what impeachment means and how the process works. He begins with a hilarious definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors” (a term that Trump clearly doesn’t comprehend, as revealed in a typically insane video clip).

Oliver briskly debunks the political arguments against impeachment, too.

Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani on ITV's Good Morning Britain

Have you missed Trump counselor Rudy Giuliani lately? Maybe not. How about former Murdoch journalist and ardent Trump sycophant Piers Morgan? You may not even remember him, although he once had a CNN talk show.

But Rudy and Piers are still out there – and on Thursday morning they got into a furious tussle on British ITV, where Morgan hosts a morning show.

A man who knows which way the wind is blowing, Morgan dared to criticize Trump for inflaming public anger with stupid tweets about the George Floyd demonstrations. That enraged guest Rudy, who insisted that everything Trump has done was perfect and that he is simply the victim of "left-wing media," a category in which he laughably included Morgan.

The ensuing verbal fisticuffs are a pleasure to watch, as Morgan informs Giuliani that he's deranged and Giuliani, in Trumpish style, mocks Morgan's weak US ratings. (Voices start to rise around 3:30.)

Enjoy!
