I think he's trying to start a black shake but they just don't expect it from him.

I see Justin Trudeau shut him down on Monday to the point that people think he saw the montage

I really love this show. But if it turns into Trump every week then no doubt will turn it off.

I love this show because of all the little topics that don't have big exposure, and this show highlights them to a big stage.

He has already assured us it won't be all Trump but he could hardly ignore him.

This, especially as it is a weekly show. Trump might be newsworthy but I don't find the stuff they do massively funny in the shows. Yes he's stupid, yes he does horrible things, but every week will get very tedious.

I really enjoy how they do other stuff on this show, the healthcare, the megachurches, etc.

They've been off for 3 months so had a lot to catch up on...

Expect next week to be back to normal .

You guys need to remember this show is not for you. In the US his audience is people who want stuff on Trump.

It's the same with Sam Bee - these guys know their audience.

I suppose you're right, but Donald Trump is hardly subtle. Anyone with a high school education can see what he is doing is wrong and stupid. Pointing it out on a Daily or Weekly basis will get tiresome but maybe not.

The issue with the makers of such shows is they have a liberal slant, when you've got a democrat in power, their hearts are really not in it. Spitting Image is a great example of similar. Might be interesting to see what they do.

I can't look away from Trump. You know you shouldn't, but you just get drawn towards him.

Problem John Oliver will have is even regular news is a comedy show now.

Oliver's gone mainstream with a mention in the end titles of last night Big Bang Theory...

Not seen the main segment on Russia yet (although I imagine Trump will get a mention there) however Trump does get a lot of coverage in the this week part but after the week he's had how could he not?

That's exactly the point he made on the show - there's lots of other craziness going on, but Trump is saying stuff every single day which is just batsh!t crazy or outright lies. Its a unique time.

I think you can get CNN on Freeview so might be good back ground noise.
