Jon Oliver began Sunday’s edition of “Last Week Tonight” by pointing out yet again that the words “President Trump” just don’t sound right together, like the words “baby pubes” and “haunted horse.” The week began promisingly for Pres. Donald Trump with media figures falling all over themselves to complment his speech to Congress on Tuesday night. Less than 24 hours later, however, disaster struck in the form of revelations that Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and lied about it during his confirmation hearing. Furthermore, Session hadn’t even been asked whether he met with the Russians, but simply volunteered the information, which Oliver likened to asking someone how their weekend was and being told, “Well, I definitely wasn’t masturbating into the Slurpee machine at the 7-ll.” If that happens, he said, “You check the f*cking security cameras at the 7-11 and you don’t act surprised.” But, Oliver observed, many Trump officials met with Ambassador Kislyak. The trouble is they keep lying about it whenever anyone asks them. “It is not clear what is really going on here, yet, although one possibility is that this all amounts to what I’m going to call ‘Stupid Watergate,'” Oliver said, “a potential scandal with all of the intrigue of Watergate except everyone involved is really bad at everything.” After looking at Saturday morning’s tweet-storm accusing former Pres. Obama of tapping the phones at Trump Tower, Oliver said that the question isn’t so much, “What did the president know and when did he know it?” as “Is the president physically capable of knowing anything at all?” John Oliver kicked off the latest edition of Last Week Tonight reminding viewers the week started well when President Donald Trump addressed Congress with what appeared to be a “more disciplined tone.” He got rave reviews. And, for almost 24 hours, it seemed like the White House might finally be “getting on track.” Until, that is, Washington Post reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had not revealed he’d met twice with the Russian ambassador to the United States while he was still a senator and advisor to Trump’s campaign. “Yes, Jeff Sessions, Trump’s attorney general, the unfortunate result of Dobby the House Elf’s one-night stand with a Confederate flag, got in trouble this week for undisclosed meetings with Russia’s ambassador,” Oliver snarked. That in itself is not against the law. The problem is Sessions’ confirmation hearing included an exchange in which Sen. Al Franken asked him what, as AG, he would do if there was any evidence anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government during course of campaign. Sessions, responding he was not aware of any of such activities, and then volunteered that he has been called a surrogate for the campaign and he did not have any such communications with the Russians. That is known is known as an “unforced error,” Oliver marveled. “He wasn’t even asked.” Sessions eventually announced he would recuse himself from any investigation into campaign reps meeting with Russian reps. But that might not be enough, given the calls for his resignation. Sessions is just one of several men working for Trump who met with the Russian ambassador during the campaign. There is nothing inherently wrong there, Oliver reminded. But every time a Trump associate is asked about Russia, they respond as if they’re trying to hide something, with denials so unconvincing they set off unplugged polygraph.
