Also skewered were Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff, whose powers were suspended in May, and acting president Michel Temer. Instead of going in on the actual political turmoil in Brazil, Oliver highlighted some random facts he learned about Temer. Those facts included that Temer's wife, who is 42 years his junior, tattooed his name on her neck and was the inspiration for his book of poetry. Naturally, Oliver had to read a sappy excerpt from the collection that contained the lines "Which smile with scarlet lips / Fires / They take hold of me. / Of my mind / My soul. / All mine / In heat." Hot.
"Does any of this have anything to do with the Olympics? No," said Oliver. "But did I just find out about it and need to tell somebody? Yes. Absolutely."
