    I absolutely ADORE John Oliver! The man's schtick is comedy GOLD right up there with the likes of the late, GREAT George Carlin! Although, even as much as I enjoyed your picks here, leaving out "Scottish Independence" was probably a mistake. Sure he have all the necessary highlights of the story but all the comedy interspersed throughout was some of his best EVAH! All else I'll say is that his wife is one lucky lady! The world needs more men like John for all the rest of us! 😀😍🥰💋 Thank you!

    Oliver is entertainment. He is one in a line of political comedians, like John Stewart , Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher. They all have their day in the sun, with rabid young left-wing followers, and then fade away. Unfortunately, their trolling for laughs leads to their opinions becoming almost God-like until the public becomes bored with them. Comics are poor influencers of public opinion, since they are essentially entertainers. Enjoy the jokes folks, but get your information from other sources.

    I always hoped that “We Got Him!” would bring more actual exposure to the Trump sliding scale. I kept thinking that Trump’s latest mess accompanied with lies and avoiding responsibility, would finally bring him down. Never happened.

    There are two types of John Oliver 'best' moments. The ones where he gets so serious it almost scares you, and the ones where he's putting on musicals just to tell a guy to go f*** himself. Both are equally great.

    So hold up... you can buy $15,000,000 worth of debt for $60,000 because then the creditors are just happy they got SOMETHING, and then now because you bought it, you can turn around and demand it from whoever owes it?!?! AND EVERYBODY'S OK WITH THIS?!?!
