In the interview, the Trainwreck star opened up about father Gordon Schumer's ongoing battle with multiple sclerosis, telling the veteran reporter:

Key Witness In O.J. Simpson Trial Kato Kaelin Still Believes The Former Athlete Is Guilty Of Murder 20 Years Later
Twenty years later, Kato Kaelin still strongly believes O.J. Simpson killed his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
As a key "friendly" witness during O.J.'s trial in 1995, the radio personality took the stand to offer a timeline of events during the night of the murders.
In an interview for Barbara Walters' new Investigation Discovery series airing Monday, November 9, the 56-year-old recounted that fateful night and how his feelings haven't changed toward the former athlete.
According to Kaelin, — who was occupying Simpson's guest house during the time of the murders — the two pals went pick up dinner from McDonald's around 9:25pm. Upon returning, the two retired to their separate abodes. About an hour and a half later, a limo arrived to take Simpson to the airport for a trip, and Kaelin came over to help the father-of-six finish packing.
He recalled something suspicious about one of Simpson's pieces of luggage, although he never found out what was inside:
Is Raven-Symoné's Latest Controversy The Final Straw? Thousands Have Signed A Petition To Remove Her From The View!
She had it coming…
Raven-Symoné may be one of the more famous hosts of The View, but recently it seems like she's being controversial just for the sake of causing arguments.
First she openly criticized Caitlyn Jenner's transition, then she said she wouldn't hire a fellow black person with a "ghetto" name, and as you may have heard, she just blamed the Spring Valley High student who got assaulted by a school resource officer.
Well, it seems as though fans of the ABC daytime talk show are fed up with her bouts of trollery, because over 24,000 people have signed a Change.org petition to remove her from the panel!
We'd hate to agree, but we're just not sure why Raven keeps failing to support her community when she has such a public platform to potentially do good.
Do U think ABC will be getting rid of Raven anytime soon??

He couldn't be more on point!
John Oliver delivered one of the best breakdowns about transgender discrimination we've heard!
He then makes sure to very clearly define "transgender" while giving his input on the media's curiosity by saying:
Transgender people have a gender identity that differs from the one they were assigned at birth, and that gender identity is not the same as sexual orientation. Gender identity is who you are, sexual orientation is who you love. Some transgender people do undergo hormone therapy or sexual reassignment surgery as part of their transition; some do not. And interestingly, their decision on this matter is, medically speaking, none of your fucking business.
From here, the late night host points to specific stories where transgendered people have been shamed in one way or another. He covers various stories and how they relate to shaming in politics such as Mike Huckabee disgusting misunderstanding of what it means to be transgender — in military service such as the case of an Iraqi soldier who feels more at home and "on vacation" because they essentially not held to the same social norms as they are back home — and even at the DMV where a some transgender people were asked to remove makeup and wigs.
Make sure you ch-ch-check out the whole segment (below) as it's not only HIGH-larious for the light that John brings to it, but is EXTREMELY informative and drives home the point that "transgenders still face a host of obstacles" and we need to continually strive for equality!
