John Oliver Does Hilarious Imitation of Tim Kaine Imitating Trump

President Obama and VP Biden both spoke on the third night of the Democratic National Convention. But it was Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) who really caught John Oliver's eye. 


"I'm all about Tim Kaine," John Oliver told Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show" Wednesday. "Where are my Kaine-iacs in the audience?" Oliver asked. 

Last week, Hillary Clinton selected Tim Kaine as her running mate, and on Wednesday, upon being nominated, Kaine gave the most hilarious anti-Trump speech yet, imitating the Republican candidate numerous times with the phrase, "Buh-lieve me!"

"If he's going to be America's stepdad, that was an exemplary performance," Oliver confirmed. 

"The level of dad jokes and expression that came out of that man's soft face... He is a tall glass of Lactaid," Oliver joked. "His Donald Trump impression doesn't just not sound like Donald Trump; I dont think it sounds like anybody. He even did a dad flex at the end where the only thing he was flexing was his face! That guy, Tim Kaine, that's the star of the evening... forget the president, Tim Kaine is where it's at."

As someone who looks like the "assistant manager of a local hardware store," as Colbert puts it, Kaine is "as cool as he could possibly be," Oliver said.

"I never saw anyone more about to break into a harmonica solo," joked Oliver. 

Which was a refreshing change from the negativity of last week's Republican National Convention.

"I think that's why I needed Tim Kaine so badly," Oliver explained. "I just needed a break from everything. This has been 18 months of hell and I needed a stepdad to come in and tell me it was going to be okay before flexing."
