John Oliver eviscerates one of Warren Buffett's favorite companies

"Do you remember normal weeks?" opened the "Last Week Tonight" host before diving into the big news of the week: Comey's abrupt dismissal, which appears to be the result of his refusal to uphold a loyalty pledge to the president.

In fact Donald Trump almost admitted to Lester Holt that this was the reason he fired Comey.

"I call bulls---. I call turbo bulls--- on that", Oliver said.

Turkey to US: Reverse plan to arm Syrian Kurds fighting ISIS
Every single one of these weapons that will be provided to our partner forces will be accounted for and pointed at #ISIS . Officials criticise Trump's decision to arm YPG units in battle for Raqqa against ISIL as U.S. tries to reassure Ankara.

Despite the White House pointing to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's recommendation, Trump undermined it in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt. Since then, the president admitted the FBI's investigation into his campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation influenced his decision, leaving Sean Spicer and others to answer (or not) questions about the matter.

In Last Week Tonight which has just screened in the US, Oliver got his right of reply. While firing Comey in the letter, Trump just has to mention that Comey had informed him "on three separate occasions" that he wasn't under FBI investigation. "I was thinking of the Russian Federation investigation when I fired Comey" is the one thing that you are not supposed to say out loud!" If you wanted him to confess to murder, all a lawyer would have to say is: 'Your honor, the killer could not have possibly been Donald Trump. It must have been someone much stronger and smarter with a much hotter daughter, ' and before they finished that sentence, Trump would be yelling, 'I did it!

"You really wanna do this Bill?" he asked on Sunday night. "Two, does he really think we as a country are this stupid, and three, are we as a country this stupid?" "And it's entirely possible the answer to all three questions are yes".

ACLU Issues Texas Travel Advisory Following Sanctuary City Ban
The American Civil Liberties Union has put out a " travel alert " for anyone planning to visit Texas , just days after Texas Gov. SB 4's "show me your papers" provision allows police to ask people their legal status after they have been detained or arrested.

Oliver then listed off numerous ways the Trump administration has attempted to dismiss any accusations; until the President admitted on Television he was going to fire Comey without talking to his team.

But Oliver does know that it's time to Congress to step up and do something about this mess. "Apparently, no part of P90X targets the backbone", he adds, taking a dig at Ryan's fitness regimen. Stop that boy. That's what I'm saying.

Chelsea worthy Premier League leaders, claims Tony Pulis
Conte has won Serie A titles with Juventus and steered the club to a Champions League final, but he sees the Premier League triumph as another big moment in his career.
