John Oliver ridicules Trump’s efforts to sell products in order to finance his legal issues

John Oliver has recently criticized Donald Trump for a series of “cash grabs.”

During Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight,” Oliver noted that Trump has been facing significant challenges in the courts. He pointed out that with the defamation judgment from E. Jean Carroll and the fraud case in New York State, Trump is currently facing a financial burden of over half a billion dollars. However, Oliver emphasized that this sum doesn’t even begin to capture the complete extent of the financial damage Trump is facing.

According to a New York Times report, former President Trump has reportedly spent over $100 million on legal bills since leaving office. This staggering amount, averaging more than $90,000 a day, is said to have been paid for by his supporters rather than his own money. Oliver highlighted Trump’s tendency to use his legal troubles as a means to ask for donations, playing a clip of the ex-president urging his MAGA supporters to contribute financially to his cause. “We’re fighting. We’re winning. You see what’s going on. So whatever you can do to help financially would be fantastic, because we have to beat it if it’s $5 or $10 or $100, whatever you can do,” Trump said in the clip.

Oliver humorously remarked, “That man is incessantly boasting about being one of the wealthiest individuals on the planet, while simultaneously pleading with strangers for money in a hostage video that appears to have been filmed in a house haunted by the most gaudy ghosts in the world.”

Oliver also mentioned a range of new products that Trump has been promoting, including a bible, gold sneakers, cologne, a mini-speaker, and gold wireless earbuds. In a humorous tone, Oliver quipped, “You know how it’s always difficult to distinguish your Airpods from your friends’ because the cases all look the same? Well, with these, you’ll instantly lose all your friends – problem solved!”
