The federal budget, as many will tell you, is mostly political theater. Budgets, in their entirety, never actually pass, but they are an exact document of what the president wants. It's a window into what the government would look like if the president didn't have to deal with any check and balances.

What would America look like if Trump had that? Well, as John Oliver explains, it would be mostly be about defending a worthless pile of rubble. Check it out.

Let's put "Don't Get Sick" on the dollar bill because it's about to become the national motto.

Now, no one really thinks Obamacare's perfect, even the people benefitting from it the most. So when Trump and the GOP campaigned on making this thing better, promising better coverage and lower prices, people took them at their word. 

Why? Who knows. Anyone could've predicted what would happen: Higher prices for the sick, elderly, and poor; tax cuts for the rich. So you'll never believe it, but that's exactly what happened. 

Paul Ryan's wet dream is out, and, surprise, it's great for the rich and awful for everyone else. But don't take my word for it. John Oliver tore this thing a new one on Last Week Tonight, breaking down just how bad this will be for just about everyone except a couple millionaires. 

So enjoy a laugh at the health coverage we're all about to lose.

It's no surprise that our reality-TV gameshow host-in-chief lies constantly. He lives in a reality distrotion field that would make Steve Jobs jealous. It'd be amazing, really, if weren't so dangerous for literally every single person on planet Earth. So John Oliver really, really wants to burst that bubble, and he's putting the truth where Trump can see it. 

We all know that Trump likes to watch cable news. He makes it a habit of tweeting about it and even calling in to them as these shows are airing. So Last Week Tonight is running a series of commercial featuring a cowboy that switches from talking about catheters to the nuclear triad in a way that even he can understand. So while Trump is eating his morning taco bowl, let's hope he gets some medicine with his sugar.
