John Oliver Wants To Trick Trump Into Learning Some Facts And It Could Work

By Mark Pygas

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver returned last after a brief hiatus, and as you can imagine, there's a lot to talk about. The first, and most important, issue being that President Trump doesn't seem to know the difference between reality and his own imagination.

President Trump has lied about the size of his inauguration crowds, accused millions of voting in the election illegally, and even stated that it didn't rain during his inauguration despite the fact that everyone was wearing ponchos. But don't worry, because John Oliver has a pretty smart way to sneak some facts into the president’s media diet.

Considering that John Oliver offered Donald Trump his Emmy if he gave a concession speech, we're guessing that he's dedicated to the cause

Donald John Trump is the 45th and current President of the United States. Before taking office on January 20, 2017, having beat opponent Hillary Clinton in the electoral college but not the popular vote, Trump was a real estate mogul, and a former reality TV star. 

Born in Queens, New York, in 1971 Trump became involved in large, profitable building projects in Manhattan, under the guidance of his father, real estate developer Fred Trump. 

In 1980, Donald Trump opened the Grand Hyatt New York, making him the city's best-known developer. 

In 2004, Trump began starring in The Apprentice, a hit NBC reality series, and later in a spin-off series, The Celebrity Apprentice.  

In 2015, Trump announced his candidacy for president of the United States running as a Republican. Trump win a majority of the primaries and caucuses, becoming the official Republican candidate for president on July 19, 2016. That same November, Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States, after defeating Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
