John Oliver Does Not Eviscerate Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner on ‘Last Week Tonight’

Here’s a clip from last night’s Last Week Tonight, where John Oliver takes a closer look at Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, who are seen by many as the supposedly “moderating influences” within the Trump administration but are actually two people we really don’t know enough about to judge, much less trust to bring any kind of moderate sense to the White House. “I know that all of this may seem like an evisceration of both Jared and Ivanka, but it is really not. I don’t know enough about them to eviscerate them, just as you don’t know enough about them to justify putting any real hopes in them,” Oliver says. “Because it is dangerous to think of them as a moderating influence, as reassuring as that may feel, because believe me — and it gives me no pleasure to say this — if they are the reason you are sleeping at night, you should probably still be awake. And if you need help doing that, simply remember: Donald Trump may currently be airing out his balls in the Lincoln Bedroom.”
