John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight” Debut Put Racists on Blast
John Oliver’s new show debuted last night on HBO. The comedian, who filled in so admirably for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, proved once again he was up to the challenge of lampooning society’s biggest idiots.
This week, those idiots were Donald Sterling and Cliven Bundy, who did their very best to set race relations back 50 years.
Solid start, Mr. Oliver. Solid start indeed. The news did, in fact, get more weeklier.
