Tom Hanks's cameo on 'Last Week Tonight' that you probably missed

Well aware that just the sound of POTUS's name now gives most citizens acid reflux, the Emmy-winning comedian felt it necessary to identify three dictator-like strategies Trump uses to employ his agenda.

John Oliver is rolling out a new series of "Catheter Cowboy" TV commercials in the D.C. area aimed at President Trump's eyes via "Fox & Friends". He undermined the media by crying "fake news" and governs by trolling.

He said the Russian state nuclear agency Rosatom would begin work at the Akkuyu site in the near future. Turkish troops have also fought in Syria to halt the advance of Kurdish YPG forces along its frontier.

Whatboutism - "changing the subject to someone else's perceived wrongdoing". He went on to show a transcript of a Trump speech about Iran as a disembodied voice expressionlessly read the text. HBO is obviously willing to pour a lot of money into a tw0-minute clip, so let's make it real, people.

He addressed a tweet from Trump on Saturday, in which the president said he "would never" call North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "short and fat". He also claimed that Trump is the "first troll ever elected president". As Oliver put it: "If we keep going with this is level of discourse we are seriously and lastingly f***ed". "They're going to clean it", and Oliver mocked him for thinking he meant that literally.

Ajmal took 178 wickets in the 35 Test matches, while in 113 ODIs he had 184 scalps to his name and 85 batsmen in 64 T20Is. Ajmal, who remodelled his action two years ago after being termed illegal, failed to make his place in the team.

"We are going to spend our hiatus snaking information through our catheter cowboys", Oliver said, revealing that the cowboy ads, created to educate Trump on various issues, would air over the next few months on Fox News.

Tom Hanks made a surprise appearance in the season finale of Last Week Tonight With John Oliver on Sunday night (12Nov17).

Oliver wrapped up his segment by asserting that, while contemplating these three risky tactics is very bleak, people should take hope in the victories this year that have stemmed from resistance and holding officials accountable, such as courts blocking Trump's Muslim ban and the inability of Congressional Republicans to repeal and replace Obamacare.
