Indeed Trump himself confessed to it the next day on twitter. I believe that info was shared early on when the show was announced. John's segment on Trump and Nazis actually broke my heart. If I recall correctly, the episode where he interviewed Snowden was the only episode that's gone outside the 30 minute window. That's usually good for a little bit of a laugh, for me, at least.
They knowingly pushed a drug which they claimed was not addictive, by funding research and paying for doctor's trips to speeches and events. Trade Embargo with Cuba, Miss America Pageant 1x19 -- Sep 28, 2014 -- Drone Strikes, Ayn Rand, Kansas State Budget Shortfall 1x20 -- Oct 05, 2014 -- 2022 Winter Olympics, Civil Forfeiture 1x21 -- Oct 19, 2014 -- Military Translators, Supreme Court 1x22 -- Oct 26, 2014 -- Sugar in Food, Dr. Bless Weird Al for showing up, too. This isn't the usual scandal. He addressed the legitimate concerns and threats, yes, but in a practical, thoughtful manner, and I especially like that he also touched on the horrific struggles the people of that country have to deal with as well. Ooh, that does sound like an intriguing read.
This week, there is no way they could have anticipated the overwhelming amount of news that they would need to address until it was too late in the week. Which one of the writers has something against Richard Gere?? Tl:Dr There are a few contributory factors to the opioid crisis, but the actions of the Sackler family via Purdue Pharma as well as other manufacturers were the original cause and are still probably the biggest factor in it. As far as I can tell they developed a drug that was supposedly effective at treating pain. Yes, that's right, defying all reason, again. With the doctors, they also have a part to play. I don't know anything about John's family history, but I think righteous anger comes naturally to an Englishman when talking about Nazis.
He wants to do things he use to do in the past and got away with it. I mean it is a comedy show first, after all. He wants to be loved. Unfortunately, most of the major players in the republican party are malicious, self centered assholes who don't seem to care what happens to the world as a whole, so long as they are taken care of. I agree they didn't cover the topic very well and it absolutely won't make any real waves, but I thought the idea of acting out the deposition was brilliant and hilarious.

On a partisan note, I have doubts about Pence's magical abilities to get bills through Congress. They're being rightly accused for problems they caused.
And whatever mutes those horn players were using, they were buckets of fun. Archived from on July 17, 2014. John Oliver will close out the weekend, and March, with a brand new episode of Last Week Tonight. Around this time, the popular belief was that 'therapeutic use of opiate analgesics rarely results in addiction'. I half-hoped John would give me a dark thing to laugh about, but.
I've been waiting for this all day and it did not disappoint. Impeachment should be about crimes and not politics. I thought John's take on North Korea was very insightful. Why the insistence on referencing gerbil rumors periodically? Nobody likes to have their routine thrown off and Last Week Tonight fans are no different. You must apply only once in every lottery you apply to. Thankfully, things will be back to normal tonight.
Watching this on Mondays sometimes has its drawbacks, because I would have loved to see John react to the Monster-in-Chief reading from a TelePrompTer today and not making anything fucking better. And that label he showed had specific instruction to dilute the pill in water and swish it around in your mouth a bunch. Not too surprised that a Brit wouldn't understand that though.
