'I Couldn't Give Less of a Shit' About Trump: John Oliver Rips the Donald on Colbert's Late Show

John Oliver's show on HBO only airs once a week and for half the year so he enjoys the luxury of not caring about Donald Trump—and he is loving it. 

"That's the beauty," Oliver told Colbert. "We're only on half an hour a week so we don't have to care about the election... [we should be talking about] almost anything  other than the election. There's a lot of problems in the world..."

Colbert interrupted. "But those are sad, John." 

The two late night kings went on to discuss Jon Stewart's replacement on The Daily Show, Trevor Noah. Colbert leveled high praise but Oliver, somewhat awkardly, insisted "you can't replace the irreplacable" to which Colbert quipped, "don't I know that".
