John Oliver doesn’t seem to share the same “optimism” as Stephen Colbert, who thinks the world will not have to suffer through President Donald Trump’s second term as POTUS.
Stopping by “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” to talk about the sixth season of his hit HBO show “Last Week Tonight” Oliver was unfortunately booed when he suggested that the president may win re-election in 2020.
After Colbert noted, “We just passed the midterm point in Trump’s hopefully first and only term, and some people are saying the end is in sight,” Oliver retorted, “I definitely don’t have that kind of optimism. To say we’re halfway through his presidency, I think, is to ignore the concept of a second-term possibility. We are two to six years away from the end of his presidency.”
But there is still a silver lining, as Oliver reminded the audience that the constitution limits a president from serving more than two terms, explaining that no matter how long it takes, the end will come for Trump’s time in the White House.
“We all have a finish line, like in a marathon, that we can try and stumble over, be covered in a silver cape and have someone say, ‘You really shouldn’t have done that,’” he added.
