Last Week Tonight: Trump With Nukes Is A Terrifying Thought

Trump's Nuclear "Policy" is so scary it's not funny, except when John Oliver takes it on.

Last night John Oliver took on, and you'll need to read this carefully and slowly, brace yourself:


Yes, the thought of Donald Trump with the nuclear codes and access to WMD's is mentally crippling. But John Oliver makes the most of it, first with a note that Vladimir Putin was a no-show at the recent international nuclear summit:

A nuclear summit is pretty much the only gathering where you can legitimately say, ‘Man this would be so much better if Vladimir Putin were here.'

Then he runs Donald Trump's comments. Sure he would let Saudi Arabia have nukes! What could go wrong?

He says that with the confidence of a man who could easily find Saudi Arabia on the map. if he was given three tries and the map only included countries ending with ‘Arabia.’

I gotta give Oliver big props for referring to Trump as "America's next President" without either laughing or vomiting. John Oliver: consummate professional anchorman.
