It’s an actual fact that the late-night comedians are feasting on the Alternative Facts of Trumpgate. Every lie, every distortion, and every weasel word from the President and his team gets new life as a punchline every weeknight.
For many of us, though, Sunday night is the one worth waiting for. That’s when America’s Conscience from Across the Pond, John Oliver, cuts through the bulls**t, and hilariously so, on HBO’s Last Week Tonight.
Witness Oliver’s latest take on the Trump team’s less-than-candid handling of questions about contacts with Russian officials. Conceding that such contacts are not necessarily illegal, John lets his twisted mind take it from there.
Actually, John, you’re the unplugged lie-detector. And we love you for it.
