As John Oliver said goodbye to 2020 during the "Last Week Tonight" season finale on Sunday, he also bid farewell to President Donald Trump, calling out the commander-in-chief's baseless allegations of voter fraud. "And yes, the fact that Trump won't be president next year is good - it's really good - but there is a lot of work to do, and at least in the short term, things are going to suck for a while, but we have to try to fix this damage". "I'm sick of people stopping me on the street and asking me if I'm going to punch a hole in you like the Marriage Story wall", he said, before doing some creative name-calling of his own: "Look around you, you underbaked gingerbread boy". This unusual, odd bit that, for some reason, you've pulled me into, what is it? "When you first started doing it, it was easy for me to shrug it off".

"Because I have been stuck in this empty void since March, and I'm realizing I haven't shown you any of it". "Listen to me: What the f-- are you doing?" "I'm sick of people stopping me on the street and asking me if I'm going to punch a hole in you like a 'Marriage Story" (Driver's film) wall".
"I'm...six feet of nasty, spankable bird meat crammed into a suit?""You deeply weird, small, small thing!" But I think, maybe, it might be time for you to step out of it for a bit. Get out of your chair, see what the world has to offer.
Then Driver does his signature angry voice as he says: 'Explore the f***ing space, you hollow-boned Mr. Bean cosplayer. (And only his mind, unfortunately, given social distancing restrictions.) As balanced by some interruptive fawning from Oliver, here's how Driver hilariously put the host in his place.
