John Oliver delivered an epic rant against Donald Trump during Sunday’s episode of Last Week Tonight. Oliver addressed that there are things wrong with Hillary, but those things are few and far between, and that compared to Donald Trump – there’s an extremely stark contrast. The list of lies and scandals that encompass Trump are so numerous they seem not to matter, no one talks about them. On the other hand, the scandals surrounding Hillary Clinton, are few, but talked about all too often.
RealTimePolitics transcribed from Oliver’s segment Sunday:
“We’ve spent several frustrating weeks trolling through all the innuendo and exaggerations surrounding [Hillary’s] email and foundation scandals, and the worst thing you can say is: They both look bad, but the harder you look, the less you actually find,” continued Oliver. “There’s not nothing there; what is there is irritating rather than grossly nefarious. And this is where it’s instructive to compare her to her opponent: Donald Trump, America’s wealthiest hemorrhoid.”
Oliver added: “He’s quantifiably worse.”
“The thing is, we have barely scratched the surface of [Trump’s] scandals,” said Oliver, running out of time. “There is everything, from the ongoing lawsuits against that bullshit university, to the alleged use of undocumented workers when building Trump Tower, to the fact that he received an illegal $3.5 million loan from his father in the form of a purchase of chips from one of Trump’s casinos.”
“The point is, this campaign has been dominated by scandals, but it is dangerous to think there is an equal number on both sides,” he concluded. “You can be irritated by some of Hillary’s—that is understandable—but you should then be fucking outraged by Trump’s…He is ethically compromised to an almost unprecedented degree.”
