John Oliver, host of “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,” set his sights on the biggest threat to American society yet: Donald Trump. And make no mistake, Oliver’s evisceration of Trump was thorough.
For nearly 22-minutes (yes, it’s longer than your usual video, but trust me it’s both funny and moves pretty quickly), the comedian exposes the GOP frontrunner’s habit of lying and then doubling down on those lies with even more lies. He also emphasizes how his popularity among voters should frighten everybody…this includes you.
“Donald Trump is America’s black mole,” Oliver notes. “It may have seemed harmless a year ago, but now that its’ become frighteningly bigger, it’s no longer wise to ignore it.”
He’s right. For as much of a clown as Trump is, the fact that he keeps winning should terrify everyone, especially Latinos since a Trump presidency is very much an existential threat to our community.
