Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

As Trump continues to astonish and exasperate the world with his ugly tweets about Puerto Rico, John Oliver calls out his racist blather, cruel insensitivity, blinding egomania, and sheer brass. We see the president praising his own piss-poor performance in the post-hurricane crisis and slagging those lazy Puerto Ricans for expecting help after an unprecedented natural disaster.

Whenever we think we’ve seen Trump’s worst, he proves that he can go still lower. It’s kind of impressive, in a very bad way.

Meanwhile, the Last Week Tonight host reliably finds the funny side of Trump’s gross misconduct — such as his absurdly bogus excuse for the failure of the GOP’s latest “health care” bill. For Oliver, this humiliating episode is cause for instant celebration, complete with marching band. And of course, we agree.
