Comedian John Oliver, host of the HBO show "Last Week Tonight"

Comey Oliver

That's the message John Oliver had for viewers on the latest episode of Last Week Tonight, which addressed the firing of FBI Director James Comey and Trump's freakish threat following Comey's dismissal.

After a week of unbelievable news becoming reality, late night hosts across the political spectrum criticised Donald Trump over the firing of James Comey.

Following news that Bill English, the Prime Minister of New Zealand - or "wallaby f**k island", as Oliver prefers to call it - didn't find the comedic stylings of the Last Week Tonight host that amusing, Oliver hit back.

Celtics power past Wizards in Game 7, 115-105
Brooks played Beal and Wall 46 and 45 minutes, respectively, but said it was necessary to try to stay in the game. While Bradley is looking ahead to the conference finals, Wall and the Wizards seem focused on the task at hand.

Oliver ripped Trump over both his decision to fire Comey and the subsequent explanations of his decisions. Obviously there are the investigations that are now ongoing.

Referring to Trump's recollection that Comey had reassured him that he was not under investigation, Oliver said that trying to put words in Comey's mouth as he was being fired was "just inherently suspicious". Oliver started questioning the integrity of the White House due to the conflicting reasons they initially gave for the firing. "Because I don't. I don't remember what they felt like". "It's the kind of response that asks three questions: one, can he really be this stupid?" One, can he really be this stupid?; two, does he really think we, as a country, are this stupid?; and three, are we, as a country, this stupid?

The host then called out GOP Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for refusing to answer questions about the firing.

On Wednesday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that every weapon obtained by the YPG constitutes a threat to Turkey. An Erdogan adviser, Ibrahim Kalin, met on Tuesday with Thomas Shannon, the State Department No. 2 official.

But Oliver does know that it's time to Congress to step up and do something about this mess. "The point is, the founding fathers created a system of checks and balances to limit the power of the president, but it only works if someone f*cking checks and balances - and if you don't, it's no longer on Trump; it's on you".

"That is the equivalent of a breakup text that says "While I greatly appreciate you informing me on three separate occasions that I was the most enthusiastic, dextrous, and intuitive lover you have ever had, I must terminate your position as my girlfriend".

Ronald Koeman raises doubts over Ross Barkley's future at Everton
"We can't wait until the last moment, it's not good for the player and it's not good for the club". Koeman disagrees with the Belgian striker but believes he can still improve his game.
