John Oliver: 'F**king Idiot' Trump Managed To Screw Up Disavowing Nazis
President Donald Trump had an easy shot, and still he missed.
According to “final Week Tonight” host John Oliver, every single Trump had to achieve when he spoke on Saturday was disavow the neo-Nazis and other white supremacists behind the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia. But he didn’t and the alt-right celebrated his comments.
“Nazis are a lot like cats,” Oliver said. “whether they like you, it’s probably because you’re feeding them.”
Trump had multiple chances to produce a strong statement against the extremists who helped elect him to the presidency, and yet he failed to achieve so each time.
“What kind of fucking idiot would not immediately distance himself from them?” Oliver asked.
Even whether Trump eventually releases a contemporary statement that unequivocally denounces the extremists, “it’ll be too late because his first response is who he is,” said Oliver.
“It simply doesn’t score easier than disavowing Nazis. It’s as much of a presidential gimme as pardoning a fucking turkey,” he said. “It is nearly impossible to screw it up. But that’s precisely what happened.”
