WE CALL BS

~Parkland School Shooting~

By now we all should be aware of the senseless mass shooting that took place at a Parkland, Florida high school.

Here’s John’s take.

“We basically automatically already know how each side will play out,” said Oliver, laying out the script that we’ve sadly gotten used to seeing.

“Thoughts and prayers. Fuck your thoughts and prayers. It’s a mental health problem, but it’s also a gun problem, and then someone says, ‘Now’s not the time to talk about gun control’, and everyone moves on until it inevitably happens again.”

“But this time felt slightly different,” says the host. “Because when the ‘Now’s not the time’ argument came out, the kids from that school said, ‘You know what?

Yes it fucking is.’”

It’s nothing short of amazing that amidst their grief and anger, they’re fighting so other students can feels safe in schools. It’s nothing short of infuriating that their bravery is being dismissed by those who refuse to listen.

Oliver pointed to how in response to the question of whether or not Republicans would take notice of On the March For Our Lives next month, CNN analyst Andre Bauer seemed prepared to blame literally anything except gun laws: rap music, television, Tide pods, etc.

TRUMP VERSUS THE WORLD

America’s reputation is being damaged by its own president

John Oliver, several dinosaurs, and the NYC Gay Men’s Chorus remind the world that our country is … complicated.

This is one of my favorite shows.

The best way to make it through these days is with humor. John is a master at it.

This is a very serious situation … yet it’s so funny.

Totally pathetic and worrisome.

It’s a bit long but worth your while.

John Oliver Hits Trump’s Alicia Machado Rant and ‘Horrifying’ Views on Women’s Bodies
The ‘Last Week Tonight’ host broke down Trump’s sexist treatment of the former Miss Universe – and women in general.

MARLOW STERN

Last week, John Oliver celebrated his long-awaited return to his HBO program Last Week Tonight with an extensive breakdown of how “dangerous” Donald Trump’s litany of scandals are – and far more damning than those of his opponent, Hillary Clinton.
The big story this week concerned Trump’s bizarre preoccupation with former 1996 Miss Universe Alicia Machado.

boom

After getting steamrolled in the first presidential debate and making the bold claim that “I think my strongest asset, maybe by far, is my temperament,” Trump went absolutely ballistic over Machado, who was invoked by Clinton during the debate as a prime example of Trump’s gross history of misogyny – with the Republican presidential candidate referring to the beauty queen as “Miss Piggy” in the past.

goldswirl

Oliver then cut to a 1997 interview with Trump and Machado, wherein Trump chided the Venezuelan stunner for gaining weight in front of her face, and then urged viewers of the program to participate in an online poll asking:

“Should a pageant titleholder be required to maintain her physical appearance during her reign?”

THE DAY IS HERE 

THE NIGHT OF THE FIRST DEBATE 2016

Most likely, many of us have already decided who is the candidate to vote for.

This refers to either of the choices.

Once a decision has been made, that the one we keep.

Yet, take a bit of time, if you can and want, to listen to John Oliver’s take.

It’s only presented in the spirit of humor and fun.

I chose this as my first post in the morning hoping that some may watch it before tonight.

Maybe this can help the ‘undecided, on the fence’ folks tilt one way of the other.

It’s your choice!

Then again, never forget ….

THERE’S TRUTH IN JEST!

~SCANDALS~

‘Dangerous’ Donald Trump’s Scandals Far Worse Than Hillary Clinton’s

On the eve of the first presidential debate, a broadcast event moderated by NBC News’ Lester Holt that’s expected to attract as many as 100 million viewers, John Oliver returned to his Last Week Tonight hosting duties after a month-long hiatus (and one big Emmy win).
There was, of course, a lot for the comedian to unpack on Sunday night’s edition of his acclaimed HBO series, so Oliver chose to dedicate the meat of his program to the 2016 election, or as he called it:

“The electoral equivalent of seeing someone puking so you start puking and then someone else is puking and pretty soon everyone is puking 2016.”

Oliver took it upon himself to inform the voting masses about the two scandal-ridden candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, by running down all of their alleged scandals.

goldswirl

“The point is, this campaign has been dominated by scandals, but it is dangerous to think there is an equal number on both sides,” he concluded. “You can be irritated by some of Hillary’s – that is understandable – but you should then be fucking outraged by Trump’s …He is ethically compromised to an almost unprecedented degree.”

HIS OWN WORST ENEMY

Here’s another version of the “harrowing experience” of Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte.

As more information comes out, there’s more material for entertainers life John Oliver. We have already covered Stephen Colbert.

Whatever your opinion and feelings may be, there’s no denying that Lochte is his worst enemy.

I have my own personal opinion about the behavior 32 year old adolescent in on of the world’s biggest stage: the Olympic Games.

It’s not a nice one.

Take a look at someone else’s take and point of view.

This time for John Oliver.

BLineBoomBLine

IT TAKES A BRITISH GUY

John Oliver addressed Ryan Lochte’s disastrous Olympic gas-station incident in a recent segment on his show ‘Last Week Tonight,’ and boy, he really goes all in on the swimmer. Among the names Oliver slings around for Lochte are “America’s sweet, dumb merman,” “the purest form of the chemical element ‘Bro,’” and several other words that are less repeatable here.

But the best point Oliver makes is that Lochte, who was once, in Oliver’s words, “America’s sweet, dumb merman,” is no longer fun. When he was harmless, his antics — such as his reality show What Would Ryan Lochte Do? and his line of sneakers — were entertaining.

But now, the 32-year-old who said he acted “immaturely” and fumbled through a cringe-worthy interview with Matt Lauer, is a whole lot less endearing.

“And so,” Oliver says, “As we say goodbye to the Rio Olympics, we must also say goodbye to one of America’s favorite idiots.”

JUST DO IT 

I’ve been telling myself “don’t waste your time posting about this “orange man”.

Yet, it’s almost like watching an accident and I can’t take my eyes of it.

There are less than 90 days to the national elections and I’m kinda worried about the turn that Trump’s campaign is taking.

At least, I find some consolation in the polls that are out there.

Still, nothing is set in stone until the day after the election!

Here’s some sardonic humor from John Oliver suggestion to the GOP presidential candidate what he should do at this time.

John Oliver to Trump: ‘Drop Out’ Now and ‘You Would Be a Legend’

MATT WILSTEIN

08/22/16

The Last Week Tonight host could not leave the HBO airwaves for a month-long hiatus before at least touching on the “racist voodoo doll made of discarded cat hair” also known as Donald Trump.
The host apologized for talking about the GOP candidate so much recently, but after a week that saw Trump continue to drop in the polls, lose his campaign chair Paul Manafort, and begin to take advice from “sexually rapacious hard-boiled egg” Roger Ailes, he predicted this might represent a “fork in the road” for his campaign.

“He’s either hitting bottom, from which he’ll rebound to victory, or it’s the beginning of the end.”

RedLineB

As Oliver sees it, Trump has two options. The first would be a “humiliating” and “off-brand” loss to Hillary Clinton, and the second would be a complete “reset” that allows him to turn things around and win.

So with that in mind, Oliver spoke directly to Trump for the rest of his episode.

(At the time of this writing, Kellyanne Conway and Stephen K. Bannon have become part of Trump’s campaign in an attempt to bring back the campaign on track.)

THERE’S A THIRD OPTION!!

~~John Oliver Asks Donald Trump To “DROP OUT”~~

Last Week Tonight

~~Published on Aug 21, 2016~~

The Kid who ran for president

The HBO host shared a 1996 young adult book called, “The Kid Who Ran For President,” featuring a 12-year-old — who sounds eerily like Trump when he speaks — who becomes president of the United States, only to step down because he’s not qualified.

According to Oliver, Trump was welcome to come on his show and use the conclusion of the book to end his campaign by using the 12-year-old protagonist’s resignation speech — which would sound natural coming from Trump, who once said “I have all the best words”.

In his speech Trump would say:

“I have a question for all the grown-ups of America. Are you out of your minds? Are you expecting me to enforce the Constitution? I never even read it. I was out of school that day.”

“America must be in pretty bad shape if you elected me president,” Trump would continue. ” You better get it together and find some qualified people to run this country, or we’ll all be in big trouble!”

Usher and other artists tell Republicans to ‘stop using our songs’ on John Oliver

Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver took on Donald Trump and the Republican Party’s history of using unauthorized music in campaigns on his Sunday night show — with the help of a few notable guests.

Oliver began the segment by pointing out the humor in Donald Trump’s song choices over the course of his campaign, including his unauthorized use of Queen’sWe Are the Champions” at last week’s Republican National Convention and a number of other instances of unlicensed song use in the past year.

At the end of the convention, as “a sarcastic amount of balloons” fell from the ceiling, Trump played the Rolling Stones’ 1969 classic “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” without the band’s permission — to which Oliver quipped, “No sh-t,” in a play on the song’s title.

Oliver criticized Trump’s use of REM’s “It’s the End of the World” as an introduction to his speech on the Iran nuclear agreement earlier this year. He then went on to demonstrate how unauthorized song usage has been a common trend for Republican politicians.
