"Look, John Bolton. How can I put this to you, what you did, in terms you might understand? Your decision to say the words the 'Libya model' may have put your time in the White House on the path of the Scaramucci model," Oliver said on "Last Week Tonight," referring to Scaramucci's 10-day stint in the White House last summer.

"A model which means you shoot your mouth off, get fired quickly and end up posing for photos in front of a frozen yogurt shop with which you share a dumb nickname," he continued. 

Oliver's comments come as the White House looks to reassure North Korea ahead of the planned June 12 summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un after Pyongyang threatened to call off the talks. 

Bolton said in an interview on Sunday that the U.S. was looking at using 'the Libya model' as a way of getting Pyongyang to surrender its nuclear weapons. 

However, Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi was forced from power with the help of NATO forces just eight years after striking a deal with the U.S. to give up his nuclear weapons.

He was captured and killed in 2011. 

Trump said on Monday that the White House would offer protections to Kim if he agreed to give up his nuclear weapons, and said he was not considering the Libyan model, appearing to contradict Bolton. 

"The Libyan model isn't a model that we have at all when we are thinking of North Korea," Trump said. "In Libya, we decimated that country. That country was decimated. There was no deal to keep Gadhafi. The Libyan model that was mentioned was a much different deal.”
