John Oliver mocks Bud Light’s ‘rapey’ ad campaign: ‘If a nickel could urinate, it would taste like a Bud Light’

John Oliver - Last Week Tonight

In a short segment on HBO’s Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver ripped into a recently pulled ad campaign by the makers of Bud Light that used a tag line, “Remove no from your vocabulary” that one commentator said had a “certain rapey feel to it.”

Calling Bud Light, “the feudal peasant covered in donkey sh*t of beers,” the host criticized the management at Anheuser-Busch for not seeing how the slogan could be offensive when sexual assault is so often related to drinking.

With that in mind, Last Week Tonight created a parody “up for whatever” Bud Light commercial, where average bargoers are invited to have a Bud Light which then leads to wild partying afterwards.

In the commercial, a hidden camera captures a bartender trying to convince three men to have a Bud Light, only for them to say “no” before unleashing a fusillade of insults about the beer, with one saying: “If a nickel could urinate, it would taste like a Bud Light.”

Among the comments made about Bud Light:

  • “It tastes like the flat soda that a homeless guys uses to rinse off burns.”
  • “It’s like a liquid version of a John Mayer song.”
  • “Bud Light tastes like the urine of a scared rabbit.”
  • “It tastes like Robert Durst’s aquarium.”
  • “It’s like someone drank a good Mexican beer and pissed in a Bud Light bottle.”
  • “It tastes as if a raccoon ejaculated carbonated vinegar into in old log.”

Trump says militia that sought to kidnap and kill Michigan’s Gov. Whitmer was ‘maybe a problem, maybe it wasn’t’

In a startling moment during his Michigan rally Tuesday, President Donald Trump implied that the militia that attempted to kidnap and kill Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) was maybe or maybe not all that big of a problem.

“People are entitled to say maybe it was a problem, maybe it wasn’t," Trump told his rally.

It's a commonly used tactic by Trump to say things like "people say" or "some say" or raise hypotheticals so that it gives him the ability to say "I don't think that, people do." But he has never been able to cite the actual person that said that to him.

In this case, one would assume all political leaders would oppose kidnapping and killing a political leader regardless of the party to which he or she belongs. In Ohio they've opted for a gentler approach, merely trying to recall Republican Gov. Mike DeWine for his mask mandate.

Trump’s closing argument to women: ‘We’re getting your husbands back to work’

Published

One week before the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump made his closing argument to women at a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan.

"I love women and I can't help it, they're the greatest," Trump said, four years after the Access Hollywood tape was released which showed him bragging about sexually assaulting strangers.

"I love them much more than the men," he added.

Trump also made an economic argument that sounded as dated as his talk about "suburban housewives."

"We're getting your husbands -- they want to get back to work, right? We're getting your husbands back to work," he argued.

Trump chants ‘COVID!’ ten times in a row after Obama slams him as ‘jealous’ of virus

President Donald Trump on Tuesday again complained about the amount of media coverage being given to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump made the remarks at a campaign event in Lansing, Michigan, where he reminded supporters that he had been infected by the virus.

"I would like to give me full credit," the president said of his recovery. "I don't want to give the drug any credit. I want to say, because I am a very young person that's in perfect physical shape, I took that virus and I woke up the next morning and I felt like Superman."

Trump then motioned to members of the media at the event.
