Oliver acknowledged the bleakness of that pronouncement then listed a few bright spots to keep people going, "because the Trump presidency is basically a marathon: it's painful, it's pointless, and the majority of you didn't even agree to run it".

While the a year ago has seemed long, according to Oliver, "The Trump presidency is basically a marathon-painful, pointless, and the majority of you didn't agree to run, but were signed up by your dumbest friend".

In July of this year, John Oliver came into possession of five wax presidents, the creepy residents of a now-defunct museum in Gettysburg, Pa.

In the season finale of "Last Week Tonight", John Oliver devoted almost the entire show to the latest controversies of the Trump administration.

Worse is how Trump's behavior is echoed, Oliver said, showing a clip of Rep. Paul Gosar, an Arizona Republican, fleeing a reporter while chanting "Fake news, fake news".

"We are going to spend our hiatus snaking information through our catheter cowboys", Oliver said, revealing that the cowboy ads, created to educate Trump on various issues, would air over the next few months on Fox News.

After mocking the president's liking of Fox and Friends, Oliver said his show was going to be busy on its hiatus. Hanks then asks for help from others, one by one, four other presidential figures awkwardly pop out. But without announcing it in any way, after the closing credits, the show aired a filmed segment that featured Tom Hanks and a wax figure of President Warren G. Harding.

After the wax statue of President Harding appeared, Hanks looks relieved.

The cherry on top is Hanks' heroic declaration, "Gentlemen... let's go wax these bastards", only for Carter's figurine to fall face-first on the floor.
