John Oliver has largely kept his distance from Donald Trump, but he changed course last week with a hilarious takedown of the Republican presidential candidate. Sunday's episode found the Last Week Tonight host devoting another segment to the "Clowntown Fuck-the-World Shitshow 2016" after Trump secured seven states on Super Tuesday and two more on Saturday.
Oliver starts by blasting the circus-like atmosphere of the Republican party, which has included a surprising amount of coverage for Trump's penis. After Marco Rubio questioned the GOP frontrunner's hand size during a rally, Trump defended the size of other appendages during the most recent debate, saying, "I guarantee you there's no problem. I guarantee it."
"That's right: Donald Trump just talked about his dick during a presidential debate," Oliver says. "A dick which I presume looks like a Cheeto with the cheese dust rubbed off."
Many prominent Republicans – including Mitt Romney – have begun speaking out against Trump. "The Republican establishment is rejecting [Trump] like a transplanted organ," Oliver says, "which is fitting, as Trump does resemble a kidney dropped on the floor of a Super Cuts."
