Tom Hanks's cameo on 'Last Week Tonight' that you probably missed

"Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. HBO

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 his look back over at Trump's first year in office, Oliver looks at the norms that Trump has broken-like never releasing his tax returns, hiring his daughter and son-in-law to work in the White House, and never putting his companies in a blind trust-as well as his transcripts.

John Oliver tackled the latest controversies of the Trump administration on Sunday's "Last Week Tonight". The cowboy then jokingly adds, "Also, Frederick Douglas is dead". Nevertheless, Tom Hanks is the inspirational figure we only wish could lead all of our past presidents on a world-saving mission. "Buddy, this can't be that hard".

Biden says he wouldn't have stepped in for Hillary Clinton
However, Boothe agreed that Biden would have fared better against Trump than Hillary did, especially among the working class. Biden tells NBC's "Today" show he had decided not to run previous year , and says, "I would have never done that".

"The New York Times reported Louis C.K.'s gross sexual misconduct, which is completely indefensible, and which inevitably resulted in the cancellation of his new film, Exhibit A: If This Ever Goes to Trial", Oliver said. That super wonky and pricy move begat Oliver's movie trailer for his ideal Warren G. Harding biopic, featuring Anna Kendrick and Laura Linney acting the hell out of their wax co-star. But "Trump's presidency is like one of his handshakes: it pulls you in whether you like it or not", Oliver said, and you need to be prepared. Hank's teaser trailer-esque segment was oddly postponed (or hidden) in a slot that ran after the credits.

Oliver started by addressing a recent tweet from President Trump, which Trump sent as he wrapped up a trip to Asia last week. Hanks said, as dramatic music played in the background while he awaited the answer from a mysterious figure. "I know we can count on you, but I'm afraid this isn't a one-man job". Cue the other four statues Oliver previously purchased: Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and William Henry Harrison.
