Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.
Wednesday, January 16, 2019

John Oliver, who hosts the most intellectually rigorous of America’s comedy news broadcasts, is worried about France — specifically, the French national election coming up next week. In the latest episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, he elucidates this complicated and crucial contest in a way that is both enlightening and entertaining.

After profiling the various candidates, including a sharp takedown of creepy racist weirdo Marine LePen, he concludes with a moving plea to the French voters, in more or less their own language, telling them to seize “the chance to prove your superiority to Britain and the U.S.,” since both have made grave “populist” errors in recent elections.

Exhaustive and sobering but very funny — as Oliver always is.

    Minor quibble but did John Oliver really need to smoke to look more European ? Otherwise his message to the French was dead on. The last thing they need is their own Trump worrying about foreigners stealing her damn wallpaper

      I have a certain amount of fear that his French Accent also sucked.
      Not being French, I’ll leave that up to someone else to confirm though.
      I don’t know it for a fact, but….

    Don’t be John please, please. Promise?
    I should know, I am Belgian. You know the brain above France!
    Or then get your global paradigms right, about what is REALLY going on in this world!
    Europe (and France) is waiting, somehow. Probably a hopeless quest!
    And don’t be so loud, electric & confused! We have Germans for that!
    But indeed sip a bottle of wine and take my wife with you!
    Sorry! I know you guys run the Whole Wide World Show!
    You can bomb and mock anywhere anytime with no warning!
    If from now on you keep your MOABs in your moats…
