As revealed on a recent episode of Last Week Tonight, Oliver bought five presidential wax sculptures - including Warren G. Harding - from the Wax Presidential Museum in Gettysburg thanks to that "dragon money", a nod to HBO's moneymaker Game of Thrones. Colbert, too, brought his own president out for The Late Show, but his old Daily Show comrade didn't think his pick, Taylor, who died from a stomach illness 16 months into his presidency, was presidential enough. While Oliver was guesting on Colbert's show Friday night, the two explained how they'd both sent some representatives down to see if they could procure a few of these statues-and, naturally, wheeled them out during a Late Night segment for a battle of wits. It was Oliver's Warren G. Harding vs. Colbert's Zachary Taylor, and the insult-fest was intense.

The purported killer is known as 'L, ' a prodigy detective behind the investigation of the serial killer known as 'Kira'.
Oliver started things off by further explaining Taylor's death by too much milk and cherries. "I didn't know your heart could get syphilis". But that just means they're fantastic candidates for a roast in the year 2017, courtesy of John Oliver and Stephen Colbert. "Harding is widely considered by modern-day historians to be the worst president ever, and remember, modern-day historians know who the president is right now", Colbert said.
