John Oliver tears down every move Trump’s made in his coronavirus response

John Oliver has been covering the new coronavirus for almost a month now, tracking its spread across three detailed videos.

And while he touched on Trump’s response to the pandemic last time around, he really lets the president have it in his latest video — breaking down everything from Trump’s rapidly changing position on the virus to his dismissive response to a request for ventilators.

“Yeah, that’s the problem,” says Oliver, responding directly to Trump’s comments. “Hospitals don’t have that many ventilators and now there’s a pandemic. Trump must be so confused by fire departments: ‘You walk into most houses, they’ve got some sinks, maybe a few cups — now all of a sudden they’re on fire and they say they need hundreds of gallons of water sprayed with hoses. I just don’t buy it.'”

Later, Oliver plays a clip of Trump telling a reporter that he suspects the media want to keep the country closed so he can be defeated in the polls.

“Oh for fuck’s sake!” yells Oliver. “No-one is thinking about you! These guidelines did not revolve around you. For once, something has come along that is more toxic and more threatening than this president and somehow, he’s got fucking stage envy.

“And look, I know that this isn’t exactly the first time that I’ve criticised Donald Trump — but I can’t tell you how much I was rooting for him to do this better.”
