John Oliver has definitely found his true home. Someone as talented as he is deserves an hour on HBO where a monologue can go on for almost 15 minutes of uncensored, commercial-free brilliance. Last week’s run on televangelists and their tax loopholes was so informative even the IRS took notice, and is expected to start a probe.
This week Oliver tackles LGBT equality, which is and will be in the news more and more as Republicans circle the wagons around their ignorance and double down on their hate. Oliver takes them on, from the presidential clown car to the inactions of a GOP-led congress. At a time when the American people are embracing equality, the Republicans still pander to the Christian right and the old white men who watch Fox News.
Oliver’s rant is epic, as usual, and well worth a few minutes of your day.
Watch John Oliver take the issue of equality straight to the GOP.
