#EndorseThis: John Oliver Breaks China With Devastating Xi Jinping Takedown

Lost in the criticism of President Trump for chumming with North Korean leadership is America’s cozy relationship with other brutal authoritarians. Our trading partners and confidants include Vladimir Putin, Salman of Saudi Arabia, and President Xi Jinping of China, who is turning himself into an Emperor while turning China into a potential empire.

In today’s clip, comedian John Oliver calls out Xi for making a number of unhinged power moves since Trump assumed office. By a vote of 2998 to two, Xi has been appointed ruler for life by the Chinese parliament.

In today’s clip, Conan O’ Brien reveals Kim Jong-un’s loving short film dedicated to his new pal President Trump. Apparently smitten over Trump’s super-cheese short film that debuted at the Singapore summit, the DPRK dictator promises several goodies. Like throwing 45’s political opponents in a North Korean gulag. But the offer comes with a catch.

Oh, and don’t worry, it’s not actually real. The last thing anyone wants to see is Trump’s opponents, from the Republican or Democratic side, thrown into one of Kim Jong-un’s “re-education” camps.

Except for Ted Cruz. Most of us would probably be OK with that on some level.…
