Stephen Colbert & John Oliver Hilariously Plea with Trump to Meet with Mueller (Video)

A couple of weeks back when Donald Trump said he’d love to talk with special counselor Robert Mueller, it didn’t take very long for his lawyers and White House officials to begin walking back this “president’s” comments. Will Trump ever interview with Mueller? I highly doubt it. Not unless by some chance he’s cornered into […]

John Oliver Nails Our Nation’s Sheer Stupidity on Marijuana Laws (Video)

On Sunday night’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the HBO host spent most of his show going over the federal government’s ignorance and hypocrisy on marijuana laws, while highlighting some of the real people who have been deeply hurt by them. To start out, he mentioned how 4 more states legalized weed on election day, […]

John Oliver Perfectly Explains What North Carolina Republicans Don’t Understand About Bathrooms (Video)

In case you haven’t heard, the state of North Carolina just passed some fairly extreme legislation targeted at the LGBT community. Essentially what it does is it makes it illegal for any city or town to pass any sort of laws that would protect gay Americans from discrimination. Or to put it in another way, […]

John Oliver’s Blistering Takedown Of Donald Trump Is Absolutely Amazing (Video)

John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight is a show that typically steers away from the mainstream news. Instead, the show tends to focus on stories that, while often very important, aren’t typically given a great deal of attention by the mainstream media. That all changed Sunday night when he dedicated his main segment to absolutely tearing into one Donald J. […]

John Oliver Has The Conversation That Republicans Are Too Cowardly To Have (Video)

It’s become the new go-to line for Republicans whenever some sort of tragedy involving guns takes place: blame mental illness. Often before we even know any actual details about the shooter, Republicans are already plastered on every major news outlet proclaiming their support for our Second Amendment and blaming all gun violence on the mentally […]

55 Years For Pot: John Oliver Exposes The Horrors Of Sentencing Guidelines (Video)

Over the last few years I’ve become a fairly staunch advocate for a complete overhaul of our criminal justice system. In particular, the way we treat drug and other non-violent offenses. While I’m not saying those who distribute, sell or traffic drugs shouldn’t face punishment, I just think it’s absurd how we’re literally ruining lives […]

John Oliver Offers His Perfect Take On How We Should Repurpose The Confederate Flag (Video)

If you ask me, John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight is one of the best weekly shows on television right now. In just a little over a year, Oliver has made it a point to inform people of stories they normally might never have even heard about, delivered with the wit and humor necessary to keep things […]

John Oliver Bashes Mainstream Media for Lazy 2016 Coverage: ‘It’s a Complete Waste of Breath’

While he was a relatively well-known correspondent on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, it wasn’t until John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight debuted last year that he truly became a star. His show quickly carved out its own niche as one that covered many of the stories largely ignored by the mainstream media. As a host, Oliver often said […]

John Oliver Delivers One of His Best Segments Yet – And Nobody Seems to Care (Video)

I’ve watched every episode of John Oliver’s new HBO show Last Week Tonight since it debuted a few months ago. Besides the quality of the information presented on the show, I think what’s drawn me in the most is that Oliver seems to go out of his way to cover stories people need to care more about. […]

The 5 Liberal vs. Conservative Debates I Would Love to See Happen

Anyone who follows politics is often inundated with a constant stream of bad or negative news. And at times it can get to people. So every once in a while I like to take a step back from all the seriousness and negativity and write a more lighthearted article that mixes in a little fun, […]
