John Oliver Curses Out Paris Attackers: 'F--k These A--holes'

John Oliver slammed the Paris attackers in a profanity ridden monologue on the latest episode of his HBO show Last Week Tonight.

“Look, it’s hardly been 48 hours and much is still unknown, but there are a few things we can say for certain,” the host told his audience. “And this is when it actually helps to be on HBO, where those things can be said without restraint, because after the many necessary and appropriate moments of silence, I’d like to offer you a moment of premium cable profanity.”

John said that the attackers are “gigantic f–king a–holes – unconscionable flaming a–holes – possibly working with other f–king a–holes, definitely working in service of an ideology of pure a–holery.”

“And this goes almost without saying, f–k these a–holes. F–k them, if I may say, sideways,” John added.
