This week on "Last Week Tonight", host John Oliver ran down the previous year under President Donald Trump and outlined the many ways that Trump has undermined the norms of governing and how Americans talk about ideas.
Oliver finished the season 4 finale by ridiculing President Donald Trump, bringing attention to his most recent tweet in which Trump claimed that he would never call Kim Jong-Un "short and fat".More news: Hardik Patel says viral video is morphed, BJP is playing dirty games
John Oliver's "Catheter Cowboy" is back. The cowboy then jokingly adds, "Also, Frederick Douglas is dead".

Promising that the cowboy has "a lot up his sleeve", Oliver also showed a preview of other ads in which the cowboy explains that the U.S. Virgin Islands does not have a president and what stance one should take on Nazis. "Sir, the world is in trouble". Hank's teaser trailer-esque segment was oddly postponed (or hidden) in a slot that ran after the credits.
This tour de force includes Oliver's meta-analysis of Trump strategies - from delegitimizing the media through "whataboutism" and trolling - to what the comedian considers "the most frightening statement a president has ever made". Afterwards, Oliver and his team assembled several prominent performers for a Lincoln-style Harding biopic trailer, with the corresponding wax figure playing the lead role. After the wax statue of Harding reveals itself, Hanks suggests that it "isn't a one-man job". Hanks concludes, "Gentlemen, let's go wax these bastards". "I know we can count on you, but I'm afraid this isn't a one-man job".More news: Donald Trump Asked Chinese President for Help With the UCLA Shoplifters
