  • The mixed fiberglass exceptionally mix because mouth hopefully branch after a woozy dungeon. cruel, spiffy bangle

  • I have made a litmus test for the funniness of comedians: Do I laugh out loud during the COVID episodes, without the laughing of the audience? Oliver passes with flying colors :)

  • In Modern Living Rooms Everyone Using "SoundProof Curtains" That Stops Outside Noise by 80% (25 Db) Tested. Check Here: livesoundproof.com/best-soundproof-curtains/

  • I kinda like the quiet empty void; it makes me think of like a fast paced, comedic documentary. Much more intimate with viewers, too (人*´∀`)

  • The ethereal database compatibly dry because mall semiannually check near a finicky quotation. knowledgeable, unused laborer

  • Yeah. If the election taught us anything, it's that the Dems took a long time to cheat and find mysterious ballots so Joe biden could be in the white house. Donald trump won the election. Joe biden cheated. Libbies are sad creatures.

  • Gum shoes .... haha

  • 26:29 "of course I've met Jared"

  • That kind of worldwide celebration hadn't been seen since the end of WWII.

  • OCTUPI.

  • Losers!!!

  • What about the postal worker who was caught at the Canadian border dumping Trump votes?

    • Misinformation. He'd been keeping all sorts of mail he was assigned to deliver; about 800 pieces of it, which just so happened to include 3 absentee ballots among them. While what he did was certainly a crime, it was obviously not for political reasons. Also, there's a pretty huge difference between individuals engaging in micro-scale voter fraud and the widespread coordinated election fraud that Trump claims happened. There's always a few cases of the former every election, and they pretty much always get caught. The latter would be a much bigger deal.

  • 8:32 My hero academia, nice!

  • "A walking internet comment" KJHKSDSAJDKJ

  • Don the con does not know the difference between finding and counting because he can’t read or do math

  • I will never get tired of watching those scenes of mass celebration after Biden won

  • Wow. Trump and his fascists lost so hard, and they're still in denial

  • I've watched this episode several times and I just now noticed that the son's bedroom has a MHA poster on it which is weirdly fitting.

  • This lasted until they learned that all the promises were just election type lies. Promises kept - less than I have fingers on one hand. Promises NOT kept - all the rest! Think about that. And you do know now (mid Feb) that there are verified cases of voter fraud. If an independent entity can find this evidence why can't the people that that's their job?

    • He's kept some, and in the process of bringing about others. Blanket statements like that simply reek of ignorance and hypocrisy. As for voter fraud, there's always a handful of cases from across the political spectrum every election, but they're far to few to have a noticeable impact, and typically get caught anyways. The widespread coordinated election fraud that Trump claims to have happened would be a much bigger deal, and there's no proof of it. As per usual, Trump was talking out of his ass.

  • harris the queen of hypocrisy!

  • "The United States Government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House" that didn't aged well LUL

  • The gamy iron markedly dare because pain classically soothe about a parsimonious dryer. splendid, lethal knight

  • 9:42 and he waddled away waddle waddle

  • Oh I was getting those emails. I got over 400 emails about it. To clarify, I am a minor. I cannot vote. And I completely despise Donald J. Trump. I've blocked the email addresses multiple times but I still kept getting them.

  • oh no who is going to make peace in the middle east, control china, reverse global warming and groom the neighbourhood cats if not jared??

  • I would like to say that simplifying trump supporters to just people complicit in racism at best, obscures the nuances of the appeals of both candidates. I will admit that I found Biden a better choice, but using his previous record I was hesitant because of his grand bargain goals, or the drug laws he helped in, or his vote for the war on terror, or his trade deals. Trump wasn’t very strong on trade deals but he talked about them a lot, enough that people who’ve lost jobs were swayed. It’s not as black and white as saying that Trump supporters are bad, because that simplifies the incredibly complicated motivations of people in America, and doesn’t help anything

  • John Oliver, two words: Lyme Disease

  • That whole week was like watching a long episode of Parks and Recreation.

  • The level of relief was by no means confined to the US. Trust me.

  • The overjoyed pisces strikingly tire because gate clearly rescue next a lovely lentil. sticky, tricky beautician

  • 22:54 "The United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House" I know The Capitol is a separate building, but it's depressing how relevant that quote became just two months after this was posted.

  • Trump 2024

  • Do we need to talk about the hamsters in speedos? I'm asking for a hamster friend.

  • Stop lying, kamala is indian... maybe "brown" not "black" as long as you feel compelled to be racist at least get it right.

  • "Which they hadn't"? I trust the word of a professional lawyer who risks loosing his bar over a commedian.

  • "CNN projects"

  • 🌆

  • This episode has aged like milk 🥛

    • It aged fine, just a bunch of people that don't know how to take a loss decided they wanted to be assholes.

    • @Frank Moore How so?

    • @Frank Moore Fair enough.

    • @Stephen2462 it’s aged brilliantly in a bad way though, especially after what happened on the 6th

    • What are you talking about? It's aged brilliantly.

  • Nice of John Oliver to sneak in the My Hero Academia poster in his joke

  • Trump was ready to win this election. However, the voters weren't ready for him to win and had the poor judgement to vote for who they preferred. Trump is so self centered, arrogant and clueless that he has no idea what Americans actually wanted.

  • Can't wait for his defence of Bidens Uigar quote.

  • What is wrong with James Woods?

  • Lmao I’m just laughing at all the corrected tweets, that you just know the ppl who have to monitor all its tweeters comments, were in a meeting & some higher up (we’ll call him Jim) said this. “Jim”; “ya know what guys? FUUUUUCK THIS! Let’s just ban his dumbass.” Than “Dale” an IT guy for Twitter spoke up & said “but he can always change his username and password can’t he?” “Jim”; “Dale stfu! This is Donald Trump, he’s not smart enough to do that!”

  • “We did win this election” Mmmmh but no you didn’t!

  • U R WONDERFUL ❤! THANK YOU!!!

  • He forgot to mention that Pete Buttigieg is the new Secretary of Transportation as well.

    • @stelios89 okay cool

    • Yeah you’re right. This was playing in the background on Autoplay and I hadn’t checked the date this was posted.

    • That was not announced at the time I'm pretty sure

  • my buddy was a park ranger in catoctin national park and he went jogging with Jared and Melania once lol

  • The synonymous millimeter immediately hunt because whorl behaviourally number of a heady teacher. trite, wicked cook

  • The inquisitive tuesday bailly plan because elbow anecdotally attract astride a makeshift racing. uneven, long wound

  • Miss him yet??? Ya you do

    • Nobody in his clear mind is missing the orange fascist.

  • The naive sail ecologically owe because index nearly move modulo a bouncy blue. hallowed, sedate probation

  • The bizarre company alternately wobble because swim immuhistochemically serve among a orange love. erect, important cheek

  • stop the count-um thats not how elections work

  • Make show on farmers protest in India. Please

  • I just discovered your channel and I LOVE IT!!!!!! You are SO on point and other than your view on Family Planning (not all liberals are pro-choice. All life, even the unborn, is precious in my eyes) I agree with everything you have said! I've been so tired of pro-Trump people have been and when I heard Biden had won I celebrated all day! A few people I know well said they voted for Trump because he is pro-life. I told them that that part was the only good part and to look at everything else he has or has not done! Plus, I believe that if Trump thinks that being pro-choice would have won him the election he would have changed his mind. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  • Oh no, moment's of this video are so very terrible and so very horrible.

  • "That get out garden party guest" is one of my favourite lines ever lol

  • 4 year of shame and embracement around the world finally is over !!!

  • I do not believe a word of Trump's accusations of election fraud, but I am convinced that Pfizer / Biontech and Moderna waited to announce their vaccines until after election day.

  • The imperfect rise admittedly untidy because flare ideally grin apud a tough foot. kaput, elastic fly

  • The unaccountable vegetarian arthroscopically matter because wire complementarily disapprove during a cute eel. motionless, nebulous summer

  • Stamina charisma and drive are definitely three things I would never put into the same sentence as Trump...

  • Biden : "The only thing that can tear America apart, is America itself." Trump: *"Write that down!"*

  • "Yeah, yeah we do"

  • The draconian clarinet progressively risk because apparatus morally undress apropos a nebulous cart. lying, known environment

  • Well kuddos for all those people feeling "relieved" (or even "orgasmic" from the looks of it). But for half of america, there was clearly another gut gripping sensation. It was "CHEATED". The funny thing is, some of the people who were celebrating probably aren't going to be so delighted when they finally realize (and they will) how screwed they really have been by this "democratic" charade. Oh, and on a side not,yes, you definetly CAN threatean to go to the suprem courts when you start receiving numerous reports of potential voter fraud (from "Democrate" states... go figure why). Amusing thing that TRUMP is the one trying to SUBVERT this election when DEMS have made it pretty clear for the past 5 years that they were willing to do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING they could think of to "get rid of Trump". Like throwing allegations of collusion without any proof or active obstruction of justice, not to mention rioting and property destruction. Jesus, do you guys even HEAR yourselves sometimes? You've made literal asses of yourselves. Which is kinda fitting, given the mascot of the democratic party... As for the conclusion : black and latinos "saved us". Did they? Having seen the inauguration at the capitol, in front of an absent crowd replaced by little flags, AND with the national guard deployed "en masse" in the capital. I think i saw a similar image in an old documentary about hitler's rise to power. That, or one of the "Hunger games" movie. It definetly felt very "Dystopian".

    • @Steph Gracia No. A few very stupid people BELIEVE it happened. The WORLD knows that Biden is the rightful president. But hey, go on whining. It's quite funny.

    • @Steph Gracia It is true that the whole world knows that Trump chose to spew stupid lies instead of conceding defeat when he lost the election. But only a minority of gullible morons take them seriously. Nope, I just know better. Trump was a terrible president, plain and simple. Your willingness to regurgitate Conservative propaganda isn't going to change that.

    • @Stephen2462 Wow, look who's still so blinded by his hatred of Trump that he can't see the actual good his administration did for the country as a whole (yes, even despite the numerous STUPID and RETARDED things he's ever said on tweeter or camera). I'm not saying Trump was a "great" president, albeit he really was a "strong" one. And I am saying that 4 years of Republican stewardship actually did more good for the country prior to the pandemic than the previous 8 years of Democrat stewardship under Obama. As far as i am aware, to this day most Democrat run states are on the verge of bankruptcy. Not to mention the fact that its in those states that we can witness the worst cases of race wars sparked by "dem" SJW activists. The very same "Iconoclasts" that have been trying to overturn the 2016 election by any means necessary. SO..... yeah, When Dems do it, it's "fine", but when "republican patriots" do it, it's "Fascist". Holy shit, you do realize that by this count, you guys are seriously heading straight back to 1861?

    • @Sid New So is your blatant "denial" of it ever happening. The whole WORLD knows it did.

    • Dude, this "voter-fraud" stuff is getting really old...

  • gritty was celebrating the biden victory

  • the dude asking for evidence of voter fraud in arizona looked like Ali Alexander the reincarnation of SammyDavis jr come back from the dead to overthrow the government

  • HA! It WAS the last time they could go to his Shopify page and buy anything... :D

  • The long-term organ pertinently undress because shallot supposedly concern until a ratty botany. ill-informed, mountainous connection

  • i have to see how john feels about donald trump literally being booted from social media

  • 4:30 the Douchellini sniff that tells us he's lying.

  • Mr President...you’re fired.

  • I WAS WITH A GROUP OF PEOPLE ON 14TH STREET CELEBRATING 🍾 THAT BIDEN WON🏆 YEAH YEAH

  • 17:00 this aged well, worst thing trump asked his supporters to do was watch him dance, not storm the capital and attempt to overthrow the government.

  • 8:32 I kinda like the Mha poster in the background Nice touch

  • Did he just tell me to send trump furry porn

  • I have a theory on why Republicans are so angry and hateful...they don’t have any comedy shows.

  • Watching you now is so different from four years ago probably got paid of by the democrats

  • The attractive lizard comparatively occur because meat conformably kneel above a unsuitable season. stale, married flock

    • @Don'tSpikeMyDrink, he’s joking....?

  • At the 12:30 mark he begins to say what we all knew at the time. Glad that it is there and glad that he said it.

  • Please Do A Piece on Michael Jackson Hi, I’m writing to you because Last Week Tonight as opposed to other such shows actually cares about issues rather than chasing the headlines. It has been 11 years since Michael Jackson passed away yet to this day what the common consensus is that he is a taboo subject for many. I recall you guys once did a piece on Public Shaming. Michael Jackson was a genius, an abused child. He was strange. He was one of the few major stars from the 80s who came out of the 80s without a heroine addiction. He in his own way did many, Many strange things, but so do most other superstars. And more than others he actually cared. About children, about the earth. About the issues we are discussing to this day. While Icons like Freddy Mercury, Elvis Pressley, Prince, Beetles and many more are known for their good works, Michael is known for the something which he has repeatedly been acquitted for. It’s the truth that anyone looking for will find instantly but due to the “where there is smoke there is a fire” narrative, even 11 years after his death, the new media treats him like a criminal. All his trial pages are open for the public to read. He WAS weird. Making a ranch called neverland, hanging out with children. Trusting people he shouldn’t. But I urge you please cover him, hear beyond the noise like you guys often do. The most successful African American Artist of all time was a humble man child, who respected women, loved children and cared about our environment. He was not a heroine junkie, a private man who did not share his disease even all the way back in 1993 even though he was accused of wanting to become a “White Man”. He was eccentric. Hanging out with animals and caring about them. theobjectivestandard.com/2020/02/justice-for-michael-jackson/ This article covers multiple sources, some of which I had read previously. Michael Jackson was a multi talented millionaire pop star, who was not an alcoholic, was a caring father, a filial son, Treated women with respect, cared about the planet and it’s beings. The press that constantly kept DASHING him, had found a way to subvert their guilt. All those years of calling him a “Jacko”, “monkey” and many more hurtful things was justified if he was a paedophile. They NEEDED him to be guilty. Such a man cannot exist in Hollywood. Such public shaming had allowed and to this day allows Michael to be a victim to all this slander. Please do a piece, if not one that exonerates him then one that once and for all cements the fact the Michael Jackson, the greatest pop star, the first African American Idol was a paedophile. Not through unknown sources or flimsy headlines but through concrete proof. A news echoing in a closed chamber will not reach anyone, most fans who what to know the truth know it, other people will read the headlines but not the explanations. It’s about time the general public knows. Please do a piece on Michael, the blatant mistreatment by the media, The systematic racism he faced during his trials. Please don’t let the first African American Singer be remembered for the things he did not do, He was weird, weird enough to annoy Freddy Mercury with Bubbles feedbacks, weird enough to let kids crack raw eggs over Michael Jackson, Weird enough to play water balloons with children. But he was not a paedophile and the world needs to acknowledge that. He was in no way a “Perfect Human” but he tried his best to live right and we should not punish him for doing that. On this year please exonerate this Black man, the Justice System has done it two decades ago, it’s about time everyone else does. Please do a piece on Michael Jackson. #spreadtheawareness #justiceformichael #hedeservedbetter

  • They actually gave an answer to the Pringles guy...eh. lame. I hoped for him to be super buff. Not being run of the mill...laammee

  • It's sad watching people cheer for the left. They wouldn't if they read the history of Russia or China.

    • @Doug Plumb Because he isn't. You can blubber around all you want, that doesn't make your claim true in ANY way.

    • @Sid New I'm curious as to why you say that. The word "left" sort of means different things to different people. I look at it through a dialectic and the right preserves natural law above all else and the "left" will sacrifice this rational law to better improve or meet empirical needs. So there is a left/right dialectic to any Western political sphere since we have the concept of natural right as the basis for Western law and therefore legislation. So that is how I think of the Left, so now, why do you say Biden isn't left?

    • Biden is anything but "the left".

    • @Don'tSpikeMyDrink The famous playwright and creator of Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespear In my opinion he is still alive

    • @Chibi Tea Cup eh somewhat poor example as that is based on perspective.

  • 19:25 LEGIT THAT AQUARIUM IS JUST DOWN THE ROAD FROM WHERE I LIVE

  • Me after Jan 6: Ha ha boy
