John Oliver Hits 'Sh*thead' Trump For Attacks On Kavanaugh Accuser

The “Last Week Tonight” host also went after Fox News and GOP apologists for the Supreme Court nominee.

John Oliver slammed Republican defenders of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault by two women. But on Sunday night, Oliver saved his harshest words for President Donald Trump, who tweeted an attack on one of the accusers, Christine Blasey Ford: 

“So the president cast doubt on someone who said she was sexually assaulted while also sort of implying that her parents don’t love her,” Oliver said. “To borrow a phrase, that’s one of the most shitheaded things I’ve seen from the standpoint of shitheadedness.”

Oliver was referring to Trump’s comment last week in which he said Hurricane Florence was “one of the wettest we’ve ever seen from the standpoint of water.”
