John Oliver believes we are now lower than rock bottom.
The “Last Week Tonight” host opened Sunday’s show by diving right into Donald Trump’s 2005 video that surfaced of him making lewd comments with Bill Bush.
“If you look up there now, just way way up there. All the way up high, you will see right up in the distance where we were this time last week. Since then, we have sunk so low we are breaking through the Earth’s crust, where drowning in boiling magma will come as sweet sweet relief,” Oliver said. “Incidentally, f--k Billy Bush. F--k that guy.”
Trump and Bush were caught on a hot mic making sexist comments about women, which included The Donald’s now infamous quote, “Grab them by the p---y. You can do anything.”

Oliver showed the unedited clip of the conversation between Trump and Bush and called out the GOP presidential hopeful for the apology video he released after the bombshell surfaced.
“I’ve never said I’m a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone that I’m not,” Trump said. “Anyone who knows me knows these words don’t reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize.”
Oliver quickly pointed to tweets where Trump referred to himself as “perfect” and having “no faults.”
“Then he says he never pretended to be someone he’s not, right before claiming these words don’t reflect who I am. Which is absolutely absurd, they could not capture his essence more if they were spoken by a spray-tanned Furby eating KFC and screaming at a gold-star family,” Oliver said.
