John Oliver Takes On Donald Trump's Dangerous Anti-Vaccine Comments!

| Filed under: TV NewsPolitikDonald TrumpHealthJohn Oliver

Donald Trump makes so many stupid, dishonest, and just plain whacko statements it's frankly hard to keep up. Usually we just have to tackle them with a broad, sweeping, "What nonsense is he on about now?" mentality.

Thankfully John Oliver takes a different approach — laser focus on one subject. In this case, it's what Trump has said about vaccines.

One of the casualties of his campaign to make his supporters mistrust the government, the press, their own bank accounts, and basically everything but him, is children who need vaccinations.

John Oliver Explains Why Donald Trump Pulling Out Of Paris Climate Agreement Puts America LAST! Watch!

John Oliver has to give credit where credit is due.

When discussing Donald Trump's announcement to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement, the Last Week Tonight host had no choice but to praise the President — for being so "flamboyantly deceptive" about it!

Oliver fact-checked Trump's remarks on Sunday's show, first going over the moment in his speech where POTUS claimed the world celebrated the signing of the global initiative because it put American at an "economic disadvantage" — to which he said:

"What are you talking about? They were happy because they secured a landmark victory for the future of the planet, you fucking egomaniac."

The HBO host also explained that Trump's pulling out of the agreement ultimately hurts the population he pretends to care about the most: U.S. workers.

Because while the States are clinging to the carbon-emissions-producing industries of the past, countries staying in the agreement will reap its benefits, and as Oliver put it, will be on "the forefront of a whole new industry creating countless jobs."

Like China, which not only cancelled plans to build more than 100 coal-fired power plants, but also plans to spend $361 BILLION dollars on renewable energy — which will reportedly create 13 million new jobs — while American coal miners continue to get the black lung. Sad!

John Oliver Devotes His Entire Show To Recapping Donald Trump's INSANE Week Of Scandals!

John Oliver usually tackles a bigger window of time than just the last week on Last Week Tonight, but this past week was too crazy!

First, it was revealed Donald Trump spilled top secret info to the Russians — because he was bragging. Then THAT scandal was replaced by James Comey's memo reporting the POTUS actually asked him to stop the FBI's investigation.

Oh, and did we mention Trump's national security team said he won't read anything without his name being mentioned every couple sentences??

But the most amazing thing, the punchline to all of this, what you absolutely HAVE to see is Oliver's reminder of the scandal Barack Obama was facing at about the same time during his presidency.

Ch-ch-check that out at 23:05 or watch the entire ridiculous recap (below)!

Last week on Last Week Tonight, John Oliver gave us the heads up on some shady moves by Donald Trump and his team to roll back net neutrality.

Once again, he gave viewers an easy path to make their voices heard, to tell the FCC that they wanted their Internet to be a fair market where no websites got preferential treatment because of corporate interest!

Unfortunately what some people chose to do with that path was a liiiiittle misguided. Or in some cases just plain horrible.

Between bots, fake names, real racism, and of course, tons of pro-Trump trolls, let the HBO host show you some of the best and worst comments so far in the fight for a free Internet.

Stephen Colbert Gives Us A Daily Show Reunion With Jon Stewart, Samantha Bee, John Oliver, & More! Watch!

Ah, the summer of ‘05.

Things sure were a lot simpler back then: soul patches and trucker hats were in style, George W. Bush was president, and Jon Stewart's all-star Daily Show team was still in tact.

Thankfully, Stephen Colbert gave us a much needed walk down memory lane on Tuesday's Late Show by reuniting the original Comedy Central news squad!

After an opening bit featuring Stewart and Colbert being ordered around by Trevor Noah, the CBS host drifted off into a star studded flashback to his last day at the Daily Show offices in summer of 2005.

In the sketch, Colbert was joined by fellow correspondents Samantha Bee, Ed Helms, Rob Corddry, and Steve Carell (played by John Oliver, because Carell was unavailable) — who were all fighting over who got Colbert's offices once he left.

Stewart, who was caught in the staff refrigerator emotionally eating their yogurt, then popped out to congratulate his team on "spreading their wings" before they launched their pre-show prayer: "Go liberal agenda!"

Ha! Ch-ch-check it out (below)!

John Oliver DESTROYS Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner In Rant Proving The Twosome Aren't White House Heroes!

| Filed under: TV NewsPolitikDonald TrumpIvanka TrumpLate Night TVJohn Oliver

john oliver ivanka jared rant

John Oliver says what we're all thinking!

During this Sunday's Last Week Tonight, the funny man ripped into Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner in an EPIC 22 minute long rant where he called out the twosome's swift rise to power. In case you forgot, both of the Kushners have taken roles in the West Wing — despite the fact they both have very little political experience.

While many people have praised Ivanka and Jared as the moderating force in the White House, there isn't much evidence that the powerhouse couple have actually done anything to temper the controversial president. We mean, it's kind of bananas that Donald Trump has tapped Mr. Kushner to repair the Middle East, eliminate the country's opioid crisis, and assist in restructuring the Federal government when we haven't even really heard him speak out loud. As Oliver put it, if Jared and Ivanka are the only reason you're sleeping at night then "you should probably still be awake." Snap! Snap!

Be sure to watch John address those issues and so much more in his rant (below)!
