  • 8:16 weird flex but ok

  • Can’t act or run a country!? smh

  • At 16:35 this guy is obviously mentally impaired, maybe removed part of it from the left side of his head is why things are lumpy?

  • I know they aren't here but how do Trump people view this? I mean, they can research and see the former job of the appointee and look up stuff they said. I guess as long as it's not a poor person getting Medicaid, it all good.

  • Noticing an overuse / repeating of "actually", "obviously", "basically" and other words & phrases ? Find out why at facebook.com/ColePhoenixWolvesforHire.

  • "congratulations on being a sex-god."

  • I could already tell that a Andrew Wheeler wasn't a geologist because I am majoring in geology and someone who who just claims that they are a geologist without much proof then that persondis definitely not a geologist and if they don't spout interesting geology facts.

  • This is America.

  • "I'm a geologist" .......weird flex but okay

  • HEY LIBTARDS, GO SUCK IT! TRUMP 2020!

  • desparately watching old videos cus i MISS U COME BACK ALREADY

  • Scott Angelle at 13:44 "Everything that you text to me is a public record, so be careful" John Oliver 14:34 "And who knows what those executives tell him? It's not part of the public record!" Come on, guys. It's your own tape, pay attention. This hurts your credibility.

  • John Oliver is an obvious sex addict

  • Wasn't there an old Simpsons episode with a speech by Lisa about swamps in DC? ...

  • *“I’m a geologist”* weird flex but okay

  • 7:06 was clearly the realest emotion.

  • Really? I used to enjoy this show. It has become the “impeach Trump” show. With horrible examples as why he sucks. The reality is that he has done more then Obama in eight years. Obama lord to everyone including me and now the Democratic Party has become a bunch of dirty liars. Well you going to have to suck it up for another six years. Walkaway

  • Ive seen this show for a long time now but this is the first time I disagree. Texting is not as good as a normal communication via. Telephone. ( Excuse my english, i am german)

  • Sewamp!

  • La Quinta also has the best pillows.

  • Bummer, I tried to call Scott and inform him that he's a greedy asshole that represents everything wrong with American politics. No answer and no voicemail. I'll try again a few times.

  • so what happens if erode public education and make the economy mostly a service economy you make a lot of stupid people, democracies don't survive stupid people. what trump has shown by winning is there is a lot of stupid people. how can someone that never was poor in his life aline his priorities with the average american? Obama saw hardship so it left a imprint in him.

  • LaQuinta. Interesting choice Oliver.

  • Money doesn’t make people do good things. It makes people think they deserve to be protected from the consequences of their actions. That is the most corrupting influence of our universe.

  • "Trump's not draining the swamp, he's swamping the drain."-Bill Maher.

  • Trump did drain the swamp. And then he hired all the slime at the bottom.

  • I have to stop watching. I am feeling a mixture of anxiety, depression and major ANGER and the know nothing SIMPLETONS in this country who are frankly so stupid that they were actually conned by a very unintelligent man and as a result, our country , hell, the world, is in grave danger....

  • Besides the qoute from Mulvaney being real or fake. Why doesn't CNN present any evidence to show that he actually said that.

  • and yet wealthy( with wealthy i mean doing significantly better than average not exclusivly billionaires) business men created almost all of the jobs, wealth and products people buy. on top of that they pay most of the tax dollars despite the fact that some of them lobby for tax cuts or contribute through donations. ofcourse there are business men who are straight assholes but the same goes for any other group of people. this comment is meant for people in the comment section it is not about the video.

  • It's the decline of the Roman empire all over again. And every other empire that followed it. Humans are depressingly stupid consumerist zombies. Wish we would extinct ourselves already.

  • Have Ben Shapiro on

  • I'm certainly contemplating moving to another country despite how much I LOVE THIS COUNTRY! But really ? What the hell are people like ostriches with their heads in the sand despite clear & present danger!

  • radical extreem left gay guy, talking about some old movie, like we dont have worse problems in the world!, nope!, bashin trump in a 30 year old movie is way more important than discussing world politics and events!~. this is why these people should not have voting rights!, they cant stick to the current topic, cant accept losing, and keep harrasshing till the end of time, because its not their candidate!, yet he is president of all americans!, as a european it is shocking to see how devided america is, and how people are still whining about trump whilst america is going pretty good on all fronts!.

  • I love how John Oliver takes the time to give compliments to his twin Steve Mnuchin such as: -a certified handfull od man-candy -a smoke show hotter than the desert -treassury secretary and white hot sex bomb -lava-rich sex volcano

  • Fuck that stupid talking parrot. I call instead of texting!

  • And now Ivanka Trump has the same Hilary problem. Lol lock her up?

  • I think shrimp are cute 😕

  • Has anyone texted that number ?

  • ABSOLUTELY sickening, trump admits he never meant draining the swamp and yet his supporters still follow him. How evil is that!

  • Text over call in ANY situation John?

  • Anyone call the number? I did. Never did get to anyone lol

  • AND WHERE IS THAT WEIRDO MIKE PENCE??? I HARDLY EVER SEE THAT DUMMY! OHHH! I KNOW WHERE HE IS!!! IN BOCCA AL LUPO!!!!! MA VAFFANCULO VA! MIKE PENCE!!

  • DRAIN THE SWAMP????? WHAT SWAMP???? OHHHH! YOU MEAN THE SWAMP THAT YOU BROUGHT ALONG WITH YOU???? YOU ARE A DUMBASS GREEDY MOTHER FUCKER!! EAT SHIT AND DIE!!! SUCE MON CUL!!! DONALD TRUMP!!!

  • Hey John Oliver. I bet you're not brave enough to run with this one. br-tv.net/plid-PL0E538EF1638B57DF

  • Hey Dipshit, you said you would write a check if Donald Trump ran for President. Well did you, or are you just a lying piece of SHIT?

  • go back to your country you cunt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • He did drain the swamp...Right into Washington.

  • +1 (0) 5715853730

  • When you see a billionaire promising to end the corruption and influence in politics, and you actually believe him, you deserve to be sad

  • I used to love my plain red baseball cap, but Trump's ruined it for me

  • Thank you for your well-researched, intelligent show, Jolliver. Hillarious and brilliant.

  • 8:07 he said Karim Benzema 🤣🤣🤣

  • 8:13 weird flex but ok

  • 12:00 Technically speaking oil is the birds and the bees... from a million years ago, but still...

  • Thanks, John, for shining some light on the Department of the Interior. Trump's cronies are ruining National Parks, EPA, federal lands, wildlife protections, etc. Not to mention the muzzling of scientists in NOAA, NASA, and EPA. Trump's rich, but his legacy will be pure shit. That includes his family's opinion of him.

  • Trump might think he understands what draining the swamp entails, but if you asked him to point out where in Washington the swamp was, he would not only try, but he would probably be in the wrong fucking state

  • That guy must have been taught the birds and the bees differently

  • 2:14 that perfectly describes the “drain the swamp” slogan. He’s just taking the shit and moving it along.

  • The duck face bitch.

  • Does Capitalism mean Capitalizing?

  • To be fair, Trump WAS a whole lot better looking back then. And could fairly believably deliver a complete sentence.

    • Everybody in the rest of the world fucking laughed at him. What the fuck happened to america....

  • The 6 idiots are almost laughable if they're not so stupid.

  • How about Haiti news

  • trump is a swamp MONSTA

  • How the fuck is a businessman in America an outsider?

    • Alex Sala Political outsider.

  • If you want to talk about draining the swamp, you better mean the whole fucking swamp and not just the Republicans. But of course you don't mean getting rid of the socialist leftist nazi fuckers trying to take over. Either get rid of all of them, or none of them.

    • Every reply I see from far right republicans is the same 'he said she said"bullshit. people who hang on the far edges are few and far between on both sides, but you just want to be angry and blame everyone who doesn't agree with you, It's hopeless and no one will change you for the better.

  • If voteing Changed anything they´d make it illigal. Stop deluding yourseves that other people will change your life for you. Get up and do what ever you can to change the future. If you teach your child it is its right to have everything they WISH for, then ofcourse its going to be misrable since that is a rediculus lifestyle.

  • Drain the swamp? Okay, I'll admit, I voted against Hillary. But the fact remains that in Washington D.C., corruption and Government go hand-in-hand. It's how the Great Game is played. You play the Great Game or it plays you. Anybody who tells you that they're going to "Drain the swamp," or "End the corruption," is an outright liar; or a politician, which is about the same thing.

    • With great power, comes great bullshit. I hate to agree, but I have to agree with you.

  • Zazu

  • EVERYBODY FUCK NOW

  • I think John Oliver should give time for the audience to applause. Stephen Colbert is good at doing this. John Oliver continues his talks over the applause, but I think it would be nicer if he pauses and gives the audience the time to express themselves.

    • Agreed, but his show is very heavily formatted and the time that he would pause for applause would go into commercial time, so I don't think it will change.

  • Trump went to the swamp and turned it into a sewer.

  • trumptards, are these facts facts enough fr u?

  • Lost all credibility here John, if you need to talk about a 60k loan you clearly have very little to go on! Sad really!

    • ... what are u even talking about?...

  • To be fair, Zinke holds a BSc in Geology. Doesn't really make him a geologist (no MSc, no PhD, not working as one ...), but it's not as ludicrous a claim as Oliver makes it out to be.

    • +AGH331 Hey, a degree isn't really training. its saying you have gathered the fundamentals to prepare you for a field of study. Training comes after, That's when you specialize. Certifications and/or licences are what show training. Its not a ludicrous claim but its disingenuous to say you are something if you haven't actually WORKED in that field, and the fact that he keeps saying it means he attaches some self-worth to it. You can show your knowledge without having to highlight your title as the reason you should be trusted.

    • +Tony J You could legitimately say you're an economist by training - pretty common phrase. The reason Zinke shouldn't call himself a geologist is primarily because he only holds a BSc, not an MSc (or even PhD), but once you've finished a complete course of study in a field, I think you've earned the right to call yourself a 'whatever you studied'.

    • I hold a masters degree in Economics, but work as an officer in the military. Having never worked in that field, calling myself an "Economist" would be grossly misrepresenting myself.

  • lul

  • I'm in a long distance relationship and we call each other every chance we get. I suppose we are both psychopaths. 🤣
