See, one of O’Donnell’s first major roles came on the well-respected drama Scent of a Woman with Al Pacino, where they had to deal with a unlikely prima donna guest star. Donald Trump’s acting career has taken him through the Home Alone franchise and beyond, but this credit in particular eluded him.

John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight has taken unorthodox steps to reach the President, buying stealthily educational ad time during the Fox News shows Trump is known to watch.

‘An Inconvenient Sequel’ Trailer: Oh My God, We’re All Gonna Die Unless Someone Does Something
