John Oliver fights misinformation with the truth

John Oliver brilliantly fights “fake news” from the Trump administration with the truth and sarcasm.  The humor is in the sarcastic fact checking, as Oliver provides evidence and a few over-the-top examples and comparisons to discredit the liars.

John Oliver, Seth Meyers, Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, and Trevor Noah are among the comedians now educating their audience about politics using comedy.  Humor is now a weapon of resistance.

 

“It’s very dangerous to keep the old campaign architecture around with this presidency.”
