John Oliver rips Anthony Weiner for putting the US at risk of the ‘grinding hell’ of President Trump
On Sunday evening’s Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver began by saying his staff had hoped to say nothing about the presidential election this week.
And then came the news of the James Comey letter about possible emails by Clinton aide Huma Abedin on a laptop confiscated from her husband, Anthony Weiner, after he was accused of sexting with a 15-year-old.
Oliver lamented the new uncertainty thrust into a campaign that most thought was over because of yet another email controversy.
“Oh, perfect,” he bitterly explained. “Just what this election and everyone’s state of mind needed. Bacardi might consider changing their slogan to, ‘Bacardi: Because there might be more f*cking Clinton emails.'”
Pointing out that the possibility of new emails came to light because of Weiner, Oliver was properly disgusted.
“It’s true,” he explained, “Anthony Weiner is forcing the country into re-litigating the entire email controversy and putting Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning the presidency in serious danger.”
“Carlos Danger,” he added, mocking Weiner’s online persona.
“So, to recap, the grinding hell of this election has thrown in yet another twist, with the election hanging in the balance all because Anthony Weiner allegedly sexted with a 15-year-old girl,” Oliver said.
Summing up his feelings about the whole campaign — and speaking for most of America — Oliver added, “Please, let this thing be over soon!”
