#EndorseThis: John Oliver Declares War On Robocalls

Do you hate robocalls? Still plagued by the spoofing tactics used by robocallers to penetrate your Caller ID defenses? John Oliver shares your angst. The difference between the Last Week Tonight host and the rest of us, however, is that he has a plan to combat the robo-callers and their “outright illegal” business. He wants to use their own scam against them — or against the Federal Communications Commission, especially its chair, Republican Ajit Pai, for enabling them to continue.

Oliver also took a moment on Sunday’s show to mock Trump for signing those Bibles in Alabama. “I am not remotely surprised that Trump did that,” says Oliver.  “I’m just slightly confused as to why anyone would want him to — because seeing Trump’s autograph on a Bible should be like seeing a picture of your own Mom on the cover of a Penthouse magazine.” He predicts a dire fate for those who continue to use those sullied Scriptures.

Carlson began the segment by alleging the shuttering of some bank branches and ATMs indicates that a shadowy global cabal is planning to eliminate cash in order to control the world population and leave people with “no power whatsoever.”
