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:
I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 21, 2018
“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.”
