John Oliver and Stephen Colbert discuss satirizing Trump: ‘It’s exhausting’

John Oliver will return to Last Week Tonight next Sunday, but he first had to vent with fellow late night satirist Stephen Colbert on Tuesday’s Late Show. The two have been satirizing Trump for a year now, and both agree, “It’s exhausting. It feels like his Inauguration Day was 114 years ago.”

Oliver described the feeling before the inauguration as, “being tied to a train track, watching the train coming.” But when Trump was sworn in, “the train hitting you and you’re thinking, ‘Yup, that felt pretty much how I thought it was going to feel.’”

When asked about his status as a green card holder, Oliver said, “I am slightly concerned. I have an American wife and an American son now, but who knows what’s enough?” Oliver asked. “Having a green card used to be enough, and yet what we saw with that executive order on immigration, that debacle, things are not what they were supposed to be.”
