Monday night on The Daily Show, John Oliver ruthlessly mocked former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s return to Fox News.
Palin returned to Fox News on Monday to inform the world she was authoring a book about the war on Christmas and spouted off a number of hokey phrases in the process.
“I just don’t even know where to begin with her,” he said. “I mean — hold on. I think I’ve just realized something. Fuck it, this is exactly what she wants. Just because I walked into a turd supermarket doesn’t mean I have to buy anything.”
Though Oliver could mock Palin in the typical Daily Show-esque fashion by mashing up clips of the conservative commentator contradicting her own “nonsense,” the more prudent move was to “just fucking ignore her.”
“I promise America it will feel so good,” he remarked. “It will be like we give our brains an enema together.”
Ignoring Palin rather than mocking her would be a difficult task, Oliver acknowledged, but it was the right thing to do.
