John Oliver: This Is the Country of Trump and the Country of People Are ‘Profoundly Embarrassed by Him’


Sunday night on HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” host John Oliver declared that President Donald Trump was damaging America’s image around the world by causing many citizens to be “profoundly embarrassed by him.”

Oliver said, “As an immigrant who has fallen in love with this country, for what it’s worth, please allow me to speak to the rest of the world in America’s defense for a moment. Donald Trump does not represent America — to be completely honest, he does reflect it a bit. But the point is America is not one thing; it’s a beautiful mess of contradictions where good and bad are mixed together.”

He added, “So Please, world, for the next three, or seven or somehow 11 years, please remember this is the country of Donald Trump, yes, but it’s also the country of people profoundly embarrassed by him.”
