Comedian John Oliver has taken a brutal swipe at the First Lady while honing in on Donald Trump’s recent proposal to buy Greenland.
Comedian John Oliver is known for his brutal take-downs of world leaders, but his latest dig at Donald and Melania Trump was next level.
The British TV host was recounting the news last week that Mr Trump asked an aide to look into whether the US could purchase Greenland.
“Yeah, of course he f***ing did. Of course he did,” said Oliver on Last Week Tonight. “Greenland is icy, distant and semi-autonomous — it’s exactly Trump’s type,” he added, before showing a picture of the President’s third wife Melania.
“Now speculation on Trump’s comments rose to such a point this week that Greenland’s premier had to issue a statement saying, ‘Greenland is not for sale’,” the TV host continued, “so, if you had two-and-a-half years in your office pool of ‘when a world leader would have to tell Trump you can’t buy our country’, congratulations, you’re a big winner.”
