comedian john oliver was approached by tmz on tuesday and was asked about the significance of president donald trump skipping the white house correspondents’ dinner. “how big of a deal is this?” they asked.“it is zero deal … i think it’s meaningless,” oliver replied. “if you can find yourself prioritizing being annoyed by that, then that’s pretty impressive.” oliver said he would list trump not attending the whcd as maybe the “250th most concerning thing at the moment,” noting there are many more priorities.“who gives a sh*t?” oliver said, laughing. “there are thousands of things that are more concerning than that — than him not going to a dinner, which is kind of bullsh*t anyway.” tmz asked what oliver thinks trump might be doing instead, “do you think he’s secretly in a room where he’s a

john oliver fact-checks ‘fucking egomaniac’ trump’s bogus reasons for ripping up


john oliver was disgusted by president donald trump’s decision to pull out of the paris climate accord last week. after a touching tribute to the u.k. following the recent london bridge terrorist attacks, oliver blasted trump for a “flamboyantly deceptive” speech withdrawing from the accord. it wasn’t surprising to see trump pull out of the accord, according to oliver. on the whole, the agreement was so “off-brand” for the president that oliver said it might as well be known as “a light jog.” however, the decision will continue to have serious implications for more than just the u.s. particularly when it comes to the water supply. “we are not talking about a fictional apocalypse like the one in the movie 2012, but a real global disaster like the movie ‘2012,’” explained oliver.oliver walke






john oliver reminds us that net neutrality is still under siege


john oliver has again fired off his quick wit at the new fcc chairman ajit pai and the trump administration for trying to roll back obama-era net neutrality rules.this isn’t the first time oliver has addressed the issue of an “open internet,” as he touched on the topic back in 2014 during his fifth episode of last week tonight. in that episode, he identified then-fcc chairman tom wheeler as a dingo. ring any bells?this time, oliver is going after the new chairman and isps to bring to light the effort to roll back net neutrality rules.for those of us who need a brush up on the matter, it’s rather simple:isps like at&t, comcast, verizon etc. are currently forbidden from favoring one website over another by giving them a “fast lane.” companies don’t like that. you can obviously imagine a worl

on sunday night’s edition of “last week tonight,” host john oliver skewered president donald trump’s partially-reinstated travel ban for muslims and his late-week twitter meltdowns attacking the media in general and msnbc’s “morning joe” co-host mike brzezinksi in particular.the tweets, themselves, oliver said, were “absolutely indefensible,” but white house deputy press secretary sarah huckabee sanders was determined to give it her best, saying that trump has made it clear that when he’s “attacked,” he will always “hit back.”oliver agreed that yes, trump has been pretty open about that, he’s pretty much “a walrus wearing a t-shirt that says, ‘i have diarrhea.’ he’s pretty open about about how grossly shitty he can be.”“so we can really be shocked,” oliver said, “when he suddenly is.”watch






john oliver shreds trumpcare — ‘the ted cruz of legislation’ and a ‘reverse bern


late-night comedian john oliver destroyed president donald trump and house speaker paul ryan’s health care law deemed “trumpcare” in his latest episode of “last week tonight.” “you may not have wanted it, it looks awful, but it’s here anyway,” oliver said. he noted that once the announcement and the bill came out, both sides of the aisle were quick to denounce it, calling it “dead on arrival.” still, oliver said that the bill could become law and he wanted to help americans understand what it actually does to the health care system. according to oliver, it cuts “the living sh*t out of medicaid.” he went on to show how the bill will leave millions of americans without health care, while currently, they have it. he also nailed the tax cuts included in the bill, which go to the wealthiest ame

john oliver introduces a terrifying possibility in the wake of the latest collus


john oliver has covered the president's myriad scandals for months, but even he was stunned donald jr. would tweet out evidence the trump campaign attempted to collude with the russian government last summer."we called this whole looming scandal—way back in march—we came up with this framing device for it: 'stupid watergate,'" oliver told "late night" host stephen colbert on wednesday. "the idea that it's something with all of the gravitas of watergate, but where everyone involved is stupid and bad at everything.""and unfortunately," he added. "it was supposed to be a self-contained joke. but current events are making it more and more relevant, which is not normally how jokes work.""when trump, jr. tweeted his emails yesterday—without a gun to his head—the first one said, 'this is part of






john oliver hits back when fox news attacks his net neutrality campaign


john oliver wasn’t about to let it go when fox business news hosts attacked his net neutrality campaign. in previous episodes, oliver has worked to explain the complicated topic and began a campaign to encourage people to express a plethora of public comments about the opposition to the federal election commission removing independence from internet service providers. in a web exclusive, oliver explained that over 1.6 million comments have been made on both sides of the issue, but fox took issue with the fact that some were from people saying that their names were “donald trump” or “john oliver.” other comments were insulting or racist, and oliver told those commenters to “cut it out.”elizabeth harrington from the washington free beacon gathered that the campaign was worth discounting enti






‘he is making real policy out of fake facts’


in his first episode of “last week tonight” following a weeks-long hiatus, john oliver blasted president donald trump, and the counterfactual world the former reality tv star seems to inhabit, in a segment called “truth vs. trump.” “we have a president capable of standing in the rain, and saying it was a sunny day,” oliver said.as president, oliver said, trump seems to get most of his information from cable news or “frighteningly unreliable sources” such as breitbart news — the right-wing website once helmed by his chief white house strategist — or alex jones’ infowars.“he is making real policy out of fake facts,” oliver said.“in the 412 years since he became president,” oliver said, many people have developed a crippling fear of what will come next in the news cycle. “it has been so busy

this week on hbo’s “last week tonight,” host john oliver began with the investigation into president donald trump and his campaign’s connections to the russian government. rep. devin nunes (r-ca) — who oliver called “the most devin devin in the history of devins” — emerged as the bumbling avatar of the administration’s efforts to distract from the russia investigation, which oliver calls “stupid watergate, because it has all the potential consequences of watergate, but everyone involved is really stupid.” “there are many, many questions this week surrounding nunes, a man who looks like the guy every 13-year-old wishes their mom would stop dating,” oliver said. why did the house intelligence committee chairman “make a big show of running to the white house” with information the white house






john oliver dared a coal exec to sue him, and now he's being sued / boing boing


last week's john oliver segment on robert e. murray, ceo of the coal mining murray energy corporation, noted that murray had a history of litigation against his critics in the news media, including the new york times, and predicted that murray would go on to sue oliver (murray's lawyers had sent oliver a letter warning him about this possibility, and promising to pursue litigation to the nation's highest courts). the segment ended with a giant squirrel that referenced a story oliver had heard from murray's workers, claiming that murray told his employees he started his company after meeting a talking squirrel. oliver said he didn't believe the squirrel story was true. on wednesday, murray filed suit against oliver, hbo, and time warner, in a west virginia circuit court, claiming that olive

john oliver is still waiting for that republican alternative to obamacare


this week on hbo’s last week tonight with john oliver, oliver ripped the republican party for voting to repeal obamacare before they have any form of alternative idea to replace it. “obamacare is not perfect,” he said. “it had and has serious flaws.”the healthcare.gov website was broken on the first day of the rollout, oliver said, and pres. barack obama made a promise he couldn’t keep, that people would be able to keep their current doctors and plans under the aca.“republicans have happily complained about the flaws in the law, taken no responsibility for fixing them and in fact have often undermined the whole thing. but that time is now over,” said oliver.“it is their turn to present a plan,” he said, “and the clock is ticking. insurance companies are deciding right now whether to even o
