Here’s ChatGPT’s attempt at writing a summary of the Trump indictment in the style of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver:

Welcome to Last Week Tonight, where we're going to dive deep into the latest news that has rocked the Trump world like a hurricane hitting Mar-a-Lago. I'm talking, of course, about the indictment brought by Alvin Bragg, the Manhattan District Attorney, against Donald Trump's company, The Trump Organization, and its CFO, Allen Weisselberg.

Now, folks, let me tell you, this indictment is huge. It's so huge, it's like the Trump Organization's legal problems have put on some serious pandemic pounds during lockdown. The charges include tax fraud, conspiracy, and even grand larceny, which is just a fancy way of saying "big, bad theft." It's like the Trump Organization has been caught stealing cookies from the cookie jar, except instead of cookies, it's millions of dollars from the government.

According to the indictment, the Trump Organization and Weisselberg have been cooking the books for years, paying employees off the books and then compensating them with perks like apartments and cars. It's like they were running their own version of a "Real Housewives of Manhattan" Ponzi scheme.

And that's not even the worst of it, folks. The indictment also accuses the Trump Organization of inflating the value of their properties to get bigger loans and deflating them to pay lower taxes. It's like they were trying to game the system like a bunch of kids playing Monopoly, except instead of getting a "Get Out of Jail Free" card, they're going to court!

Now, we don't want to jump to conclusions here, but if these charges stick, the Trump Organization could be in serious trouble. It's like they've finally run out of luck, like a gambler who's just lost their last hand of poker. So, sit back, relax, and grab some popcorn, because this is going to be a legal battle for the ages.

On a different note, here’s Francisco Goya’s Saturn Devouring His Son:
