John Oliver Slams Donald Trump for Comments on Charlottesville Violence - Watch Here!

John Oliver is calling out President Donald Trump for his comments made about the white supremacist rally that took place on Saturday (August 12) in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides. On many sides,” Trump said in his speech.

During last night’s (August 13) episode of Last Week Tonight, John joined a number of celebrities in condemning Trump for his failure to call out the white supremacists.

“Wait, on many sides?” John said in response. “This was a white nationalist rally, you have to call that out by name. There honestly aren’t many instances in modern American politics where you can honestly think, ‘That guy really should have mentioned the Nazis,’ but this is emphatically one of them. It’s like a reverse Godwin’s Law: If you fail to mention Nazism, you lose the argument.”

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.
