TV host John Oliver calls Trump out for witness tampering

According to Mashable, Oliver said by Trump's false suggestion that he recorded his meeting with the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, James Comey, the president did something "extraordinarily stupid", The president kept not only Comey, but the world hanging for six weeks before he admitted by a tweet last week that there were no tapes of their conversation.

The group, which ran a similar attack against Comey ahead of his testimony earlier this month on Capitol Hill, has emerged as a key pro-Trump organization. Most Trump watchers had concluded as much, but the episode is still worth highlighting as an illustration of how Mr. Trump undermines his credibility as Commander in Chief when he plays social-media troll. Oliver laughed after listening to Trump speak.

Trump in a pair of tweets on Thursday wrote: "With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea whether there are "tapes" or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings". "So you never know what's out there, but I didn't tape and I don't have any tape and I didn't tape". Not surprisingly, but always hilariously, the Last Week Tonight host has a few parting words for both Fox and Trump. Then, he broke down what Trump's words actually mean.

"And on top of all that, he then implied he made Comey tell the truth about their conversations, seemingly verifying Comey's account which is incredibly damaging to the president", he continued. So, yeah, Trump might actually be right: "it wasn't very stupid, it was extraordinarily stupid".
