Worse is how Trump's behavior is echoed, Oliver said, showing a clip of Rep. Paul Gosar, an Arizona Republican, fleeing a reporter while chanting "Fake news, fake news".

John Oliver tackled the latest controversies of the Trump administration on Sunday's "Last Week Tonight". "And for many Trump supporters, that itself counts as a major victory".

The first ad tweaks Trump over comments he made about a new "clean coal" facility at an August rally, to which John Oliver previously called attention at the top of the show.

However, the fire damaged speakers, cables, setting lights and other equipment, at the main stage area at the auditorium. According to the reports, four fire tenders immediately rushed to the spot and the fire was extinguished within 2 hours.

"The New York Times reported Louis C.K.'s gross sexual misconduct, which is completely indefensible, and which inevitably resulted in the cancellation of his new film, Exhibit A: If This Ever Goes to Trial", Oliver said. Think of this as a highly anticipated sequel to "Harding", in a shared cinematic universe of world-saving wax presidents, led by a resolute Tom Hanks. It's all very solemn and serious, with Hanks appealing to an unseen president that "the fate of humanity is at stake".

Oliver acknowledged the bleakness of that pronouncement then listed a few bright spots to keep people going, "because the Trump presidency is basically a marathon: it's painful, it's pointless, and the majority of you didn't even agree to run it". Hanks said, as dramatic music played in the background while he awaited the answer from a mysterious figure.

From behind a desk, a chair turns around to reveal a grotesque wax figure of President Warren G. Harding. "I know we can count on you, but I'm afraid this isn't a one-man job". Then, four other wax statues of former Presidents - Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and William Henry Harrison - appear on the set. Hanks concludes, "Gentlemen, let's go wax these bastards".
