John Oliver Needs Help Protecting Net Neutrality - Watch!

John Oliver is taking on net neutrality once again!

The 40-year-old host of the HBO political talk-show Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

"I'm calling upon all of you -- the internet, time wasters and troublemakers -- to join me once more in just five to 10 minutes of minor efforts," John said. "I need you to do this. Once more unto the bridge, my friends."

Last month, the FCC revealed plans to weaken Obama-era net rules that prevented internet service providers from intentionally speeding or slowing down user access to different sites.

"It seems that Trump-era will basically Ctrl-Z everything that happened on Obama’s watch,” John said. “I genuinely would not be surprised if one night Trump went on TV just to tell us he personally killed every turkey Obama ever pardoned.”

VIDEO: John Oliver' Post-Election Episode is a Must Watch!

John Oliver‘s Last Week Tonight season finale aired on Sunday night (November 14) and he wrapped up the season by going into what having Donald Trump as the next president means for the country.

The full 30 minute episode is now live on YouTube and you can watch it below.

Oliver played clips of influential people in the news urging Americans to give Trump a chance, but he explained why we shouldn’t.

“Optimism is nice if you can swing it, but you’ve got to be careful, because it can feed into the normalization of Donald Trump, and he’s not normal,” he said. “He’s abnormal. He’s a human What Is Wrong With This Picture… So giving him a chance, in the sense of not speaking out immediately against policies he has proposed, is dangerous. Because some of them are alarming.”

At the end of the episode, Oliver recapped why 2016 has been one of the worst years on record.

John Oliver used his HBO series Last Week Tonight on Sunday (June 26) to comment on the aftermath of the Brexit vote.

The 39-year-old political comedian criticized supporters of the movement for declaring the day of the vote to be Britain’s “Independence Day.”

“First, Britain was already independent. In fact, it’s what many other countries celebrate their independence from,” John said. “Second, the sequel to the movie Independence Day actually opened this week, and features the wholesale destruction of London, which is beginning to feel pretty f–king appropriate right now.”
