Unrelated note: Berlin in the 1920s had the most potent and vibrant satire scene in Europe. Anyway, here’s John Oliver making fun of Donald Trump.
Of course Oliver nails Trump – the man speaks like he’s a villain in Murder She Wrote, and Oliver’s attempt to rechristen the Republican frontrunner as ‘Drumpf’ is inspired.
But the fact Oliver is having to address Trump at all – usually Last Week Tonight steers clear of the ins-and-outs of the campaign– is a sign, and really he’s singing a very funny, very pretty song for the choir. If Trump cared about you and people like you laughing at him, we wouldn’t be in this mess.
