After ragging on the Republican National Convention and its attendees’ predilection for passing off their ~feels~ as truth, you’d think John Oliver would latch onto the wild world of the Democratic National Convention with equal fervour.
In the latest ep of Last Week Tonight, he did. Kinda.
We say that, because despite hinting at the corruption scandal that has embroiled the party’s former chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz and President Barack Obama’s admission that the rest of the world really has zero clue what is going on over there, his targets were still set on Donald Trump.
Parroting the horrendously misinformed take that Khizr’s wife Ghazala stayed silent during the speech for religious reasons, Trump left himself absolutely open for a blast of white-hot sanctimony from Oliver.
“The main takeaway from these two weeks is that, incredibly, 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.And I genuinely did not think that was a part of the job that someone could be bad at.”
