John Oliver Warns This Isn’t The End Of The Line For Trump

"He’s always approaching the end of the line but it never seems to come."

Those who believe that the growing scandals around President Donald Trump could force him out of office may be in for a big disappointment. 

John Oliver, host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight,” reminded viewers on Sunday that Trump has survived all of the other controversies that have come his way. 

Why would this be the end of the line for him?” Oliver asked. “Trump has seemed to reach the end of the line on multiple occasions, only for nothing to happen.”

Oliver pointed to various scandals from the campaign, including Trump’s hesitation to disavow former KKK leader David Duke, the time he “bullied a Gold Star family” and the “Access Hollywood” tape as evidence.  

“We all thought the next stop on that bus was ― you guessed it ― the end of the fucking line,” Oliver said. “But it seems like when it comes to President Trump, he’s always approaching the end of the line but it never seems to come. As if for him, and him alone, the end of the line is drawn by M.C. Fucking Escher.” 

Oliver dubbed the latest scandal ― involving Trump revealing code-word classified information to Russian officials in the Oval Office ― “Stupid Watergate,” and urged viewers not to ignore everything else that was going on, such as Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ move to undo criminal justice reforms, the administration’s proposed cuts to Medicaid and a possible plan to end key Obamacare subsidies
