John Oliver Calls 'Turbo Bulls**t' On Trump's Comey Claims

Prime Minister Bill English in the virtual reality headset John Oliver mocked him for

Oliver said he would be appalled if his show appealed to someone with English's taste in pizza, and proposed other toppings English might like - including Skittles, baking soda and condoms, and a mix of altoids and horse laxatives. However, Trump later contradicted all of them in an interview with Lester Holt of NBC News when he said that he made the decision to fire Comey because "this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story". He also pointed to a tweet from Trump that suggested the president may have recorded his private meetings with Comey. Oliver said. "It's the kind of response that makes you ask three questions: One, can he really be this stupid?"

In between Mr Oliver yelling at us like he's some Dad's Army general, there are clips of Bill English wearing a virtual reality headset, going for a run-walk (that was so two weeks ago), and posing with his spaghetti-pineapple pizza (that was so last month).

The host then called out GOP Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for refusing to answer questions about the firing. Nothing matters? Absolutely nothing matters anymore? But ever since Donald Trump was elected, Oliver's focus has been forced to shift to, basically, whatever insane thing Trump did in the preceding week, devoting at least a few minutes to breaking it all down, if not giving it full features. "There is now way those conversations went down in that manner". "Trump has somehow managed to be both a awful and an awesome liar, and I don't know how that's physically possible". "It's honestly incredible to watch a man who spends 90 minutes every morning working out refuse to show any strength whatsoever. And if you don't, it's no longer on Trump - it's on you". It's on you. Because when you've got the presidential equivalent of a five year old shitting on the salad bar of a Ruby Tuesday, at some point you stop blaming the five year old and you start blaming the people who are not stopping him.

Yates, Flynn And The Trump-Russia Investigation
Comey was set to testify before the Intelligence Committee Thursday, but Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe will take his place. Spicer described Yates, who was an Obama appointee, as "someone who is not exactly a supporter of the president's agenda".

"I think I speak on behalf of all humanity when I say, no!"

Late-night comedians have had no shortage of material after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey this week.
