#EndorseThis: John Oliver Delivers Scathing Review Of Trump Year One

Ch-ch-check out the full episode (below) to see Oliver's commentary on what we've learned one year after the presidential election.

While summing up the first tactic, delegitimizing the media, Oliver noted that Trump has regularly engaged in criticism of the news media throughout his career.

Whatboutism - "changing the subject to someone else's perceived wrongdoing".

The host also addressed the president's recent tweet, revealing that he would never refer to Kim Jong-Un as "short and fat" for he hopes someday they can be friends.

Ardern said she raised the issue with Turnbull in passing, but they have not discussed it further. Ms Ardern said it was faster to organise the logistics of any deal with Australia.

Oliver went on to say that Trump's agenda-pushing strategies resemble what he called an "old Soviet propaganda tool." . Oliver used Trump's reaction to the attack in Charlottesville, Virginia to explain this notion, saying the president repeatedly asked "what about" the alt-left in the wake of the tragedy, instead of condemning white nationalism. He also claimed that Trump is the "first troll ever elected president".

While the audience laughed at the host's jokes, Oliver then told his audience that he wanted to "pull back from the daily Trump-included chaos and take a look at the norms that his presidency has violated".

Thanks to Trump, these techniques are spreading with a patina of legitimacy, Oliver said, pointing to Sean Hannity's pivoting from the allegations against Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore to Bill Clinton's alleged sexual misconduct. Seeing how it spreads, he said, is evidence of how we're already "seriously and lastingly f*cked". Image via YouTube.comWhile his "Last Week Tonight" HBO show is on hiatus, the truth-telling cowboy ("Star Trek" supporting actor Thomas Kopache) will conclude by telling Trump: "If you're not enjoying this, there's no shame in quitting". "They're going to clean it", and Oliver mocked him for thinking he meant that literally.
