On Sunday evening, John Oliver dedicated the opening portion of his HBO series Last Week Tonight to first son-in-law Jared Kushner, “a man who constantly looks like he was just reset to factory settings.”
Oliver, who has made it a habit of torching Mr. Ivanka—once proclaiming that his father-in-law has more sexual chemistry with Ivanka than he does—proceeded to probe Kushner’s meeting this week with Benjamin Netanyahu, wherein the squeaky-voiced real-estate heir presented the embattled Israeli prime minister with a map of Israel that included the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
“Wow. All else aside, a map is a shitty gift—and getting it from Jared Kushner is the shittest way to receive it. It would be like if you got a bouquet of dead fish from your birthday, delivered by Matt Lauer,” cracked Oliver.
“But much more importantly, that map is a huge symbolic gesture,” he continued. “The Golan Heights is an area that virtually the entire international community considers occupied Syrian territory, so it’s a willfully provocative move with a finishing touch that is pure Trump.”
The comedian then pointed out how Trump wrote an arrow on the map pointing to it, accompanied by the word: “Nice.”
“Holy shit,” Oliver exclaimed. “I guess the only really surprising thing there is that Trump clearly spelled ‘noice’ wrong. Because it’s n-o-i-c-e. Any of this year’s eight Spelling Bee co-champions could have told you that.”
