During Last Week Tonight Sunday, host John Oliver devoted nearly his entire show to advocating for the impeachment of President Trump while attempting to portray himself as neutral on the matter. Oliver appeared to have a newfound sense of motivation to push for impeachment following President Trump’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
On the June 9 Last Week Tonight on HBO, host John Oliver uncorked one of his long faux-comedic crusades for a left-wing cause, in this case the utopian dream of an "Equal Rights Amendment." He mocked its biggest opponent, the late Phyllis Schlafly, as an undesirable wife. I'm not sure how big a sacrifice it was for [her husband] Fred to spend a few hours not hanging out with Phyllis Schlafly. If I had to guess, Fred was absolutely okay with Phyllis getting out of the house for the day. The night, even."
On his weekly HBO show Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took a shot at Meghan McCain, now the outspoken conservative on ABC's The View. It came as Oliver discussed the Eurovision song contest, which included a kooky anti-capitalist sado-masochist rock band from Iceland called Hatari, and one member (shown in bondage gear) was the son of Iceland's ambassador to England. Oliver joked: "You may be thinking that’s the most embarrassing child of a prominent political figure you’ve ever seen, but let me remind you of the continued existence of Meghan McCain!"
The Sunday edition of HBO’s Last Week Tonight With John Oliver focused heavily on climate change, so it featured an appearance from Bill Nye the Science Guy, who had some harsh words for conservatives skeptical of the Green New Deal throughout the episode, concluding with a profanity-laced rant aimed at critics of the Green New Deal.
The liberal media launched an offensive against both of President Donald Trump’s selections for the Federal Reserve board of governors.
The media have outdone themselves slinging mud at the “controversial” and “unqualified” picks of economics writer and Club for Growth founder Stephen Moore and millionaire businessman, former CEO and former presidential candidate Herman Cain. Cain also served as a director for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Directors provide “insight on current and emerging issues” in the business community.
Lefty HBO host John Oliver lashed out at Jay Leno on Sunday, trashing the former Tonight Show star after he called for more balance in political comedy. Instead of focusing on Leno’s call for more fairness, Oliver attacked the comedian as a hypocrite. In a segment on public shaming and Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, the Last Week Tonight host noted that some comics regret their ‘90s jokes about the White House intern: “Many comedians have since publicly expressed regret about things they've said, although one who hasn't, and who was among the most relentless, was Jay Leno.”
HBO anchor John Oliver may be your standard entertainment liberal, but even he can see the awfulness in the way ex-Today host Matt Lauer treated women. In a segment deriding psychics as the low rent scam artists, the Last Week Tonight host mocked Lauer as “sophisticated Manhattan sex monster.”
Hard-left HBO host John Oliver went on an anti-Brexit rant, Sunday, seething about stupid voters who allowed the country to vote against the European Union. He also featured a profanity-laced tirade from a Winston Churchill impersonator, mocking his home country: “We haven’t begun to f**k ourselves!”
Even though Jon Stewart hasn’t been the host of The Daily Show on the Comedy Central cable channel for four years, the liberal comedian still takes advantage of every opportunity to slam President Trump, whom he blames for the world being “in a terrible situation.” That was the case when Stewart spoke at Monday evening’s Stand Up for Heroes benefit honoring wounded veterans in New York City, where he said he was “excited” about the midterm election because that could be “the beginning of the end” of Trump’s presidency.
Liberal comedian John Oliver spent the majority of his Last Week Tonight show Sunday mocking Brett Kavanaugh’s emotional testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday and bashing Republicans for continuing to support his nomination. Oliver’s vulgar rant attacked the judge for everything from being too weepy and too angry, to too controversial and too partisan to be worthy of confirmation.
In light of the recent accusations against Les Moonves, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver found it his duty to address workplace harassment and to help resurrect an old liberal hero. On his July 29 show, after giving his own thoughts about sexual harassment, Oliver turned to the person he said “kickstarted” the conversation about workplace harassment back in the 90s; this was none other than Anita Hill who accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment after he was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1991.
Late Sunday on HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the liberal comedian despaired, along with the rest of the media, over Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court. Playing advocate for the Democrats, the host spread doom and gloom predictions over the legacy of Roe v. Wade and gay marriage.
