John Oliver has long been very good at explaining complex situations and ideas to a general audience, which is great for right now, because we need someone to explain to us just how intensely we’re being manipulated right now! This week, John Oliver covers Vladimir Putin — the man who manipulated our last election, was involved in the tainting of the ousted General Flynn, and who may or may not be currently blackmailing our president with a videotape of him hiring prostitutes to pee on a bed.
John Oliver covers the weird pop culture surrounding Putin (such as bizarre Europop), Putin’s control over the president and just how Putin intimidates and attacks critics through poison, people shitting on cars, and even mechanized dildos flying through anti Putin rallies. Lovely, I guess.
As America is more and more confused by the ever changing role of its own country in the world and regarding foreign relations, I’m glad John Oliver is doing the job America needs and explaining these grand sweeping topics in simple language.
