On Sunday's Last Week Tonight, John Oliver analyzed President Trump's federal budget proposal, which boosts military and defense spending while reducing or eliminating crucial federal programs like the Environmental Protection Agency. Oliver explains that the budget was directed by Mick Mulvaney, who created it by somehow culling policy from incoherent statements Trump has made throughout his campaign. Trump's budget proposal would cut a plethora of departments and important commissions, ranging from the Agriculture to Department and NASA to the National Endowment for the Arts. "Hope you find a gig with the next country that rises from our ashes". Trump's budget proposal is far from flawless, but if Oliver is seeking to change hearts and minds with this kind of monologue, he's basically just preaching to his very-liberal choir.

"Translating the noises that come out of Trump's face into hard policy prescriptions is nearly impossible", Oliver added, describing Trump's speech as "fluid toddler psychopath", his statements more like "the audio book of A Farewell to Arms broadcast by an iPhone submerged in hot coffee". You can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press.
"I don't know what that was", Oliver said. "But if you don't deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on". "He just needs one person to tell him that World War I was called 'The Great War, ' and he's going to want to have a better one out of sheer pettiness". "It's taking longer than is perhaps ideal, but soon all of us will be fed up...right up to the tippy f****** top!"
