Last Week Tonight host John Oliver shot down Donald Trump’s understanding of women's rights, while also vowing to stay in the country even if the Republican presidential nominee wins the election, during a gala on Tuesday night.
"If you ask Donald Trump to draw a fallopian tube, I cannot imagine what you would get back other than a child’s drawing of a cobra," Oliver said at Tuesday's gala for the Center for Reproductive Rights. Donald John Trump is an American businessman, television producer, and politician who is the Republican Party nominee for President of the United States in the 2016 election.
John William Oliver is an English comedian, political commentator, television host, and occasional actor. He is the host of HBO's Peabody Award-winning late-night talk show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Oliver is the recipient of five Primetime Emmy Awards and two Writers Guild Awards.
"Good evening gentlemen and nasty women - nasty, nasty, nasty," he said Tuesday night to a roar of applause and cheers. "Some of the nastiest among us, I imagine."
John Oliver appeared at the fifth annual shindig, which honored filmmaker Dawn Porter and author Isabel Allende. Oliver's opening line was a dig at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who referred to his opponent Hillary Clinton as a nasty woman during the third debate.
Through the showdown, Trump came out as steadfastly pro-life and anti-abortion. Oliver suggested that Trump’s blustery statement might have a silver lining. “In terms of the communication about reproductive rights, and the conversation that is so important, we really did potentially hit an idea in the modern era during that third debate,” Oliver said.
The TV host also mentioned that Trump's discussion about abortions showed no real understanding of how it works and no clear understanding about the basic biology of women's body. He said that the nominee has a very poor sense of grammar.
