    1. Nick Franklin

      Mr.Bean nailed it

    2. Caleb Fowler

      He has done the best he can..... Which should tell you something about capable he was as president. It's trump the best he can ends in bankruptcy

    3. Mike Connell

      Worst president in history.

    4. proud2bpagan

      selling his bottled urine..don't give him any ideas!

    5. Zoltan Boka

      Biden came within 70,000 votes to losing the electoral college to this guy.

    6. Eric Murano

      Nov 2, 2020 - "Nearly a quarter of a million Americans". Feb 23, 2021 - half a million.

    7. Sophia Miyamoto

      Those people who said Trump was doing the "best he can" might actually a point, considering how completely inept he is lol

    8. Bilal Malik

      John Oliver, two words: Lyme Disease

    9. Lisa Ratley

      Half a million Americans dead and thousands of those because of Trump’s lies and deliberate disinformation.

    10. scott ferguson

      I am glad I stumbled on this post.This man actually makes sense.

    11. Michael Gavin

      I cried. I died. I lived for a moment inside.

    12. Offero 04

      My sense of humour is pretty sick, so when I saw that Trump had called the rona "Kung Flu", I laughed out loud and totally freaked out my cats. Thats pretty fukn racist... holy shit Donald, you absolute dumb ass. o.0 XD

    13. Anita Roosen

      What a load of BS

    14. Astolfo

      Coming back here after he's no longer president is saddening.. Because when I watched it originally, I kinda just glazed over watching this, because, let's be honest, it's the same shit we'd heard for about 4 years. But now that I haven't heard any Trump related news for over a month, it's starting to sink in just how bad it had gotten that something like this had become common place and routine.

    15. Kelsey Logas

      Here's one thing I don't understand (One thing?): the WHO had a test. It worked. It maybe wasn't perfect but it existed! WHY THE HELL DIDN'T WE GET SOME?? Why did we INSIST on making our own? It just slowed down testing and made this all worse! Okay, everything John mentioned as well, but this too!!

    16. Richard Sleep

      Wow thanks John for speaking so powerfully for so many of us. Love you guys.

    17. ayy lmao

      Donald trump and all of his supporters are built like shattered lava lamps

    18. Jin

      This show needs to be featured more than just *ONCE* a week 😒😒😒 *IJS* 🤷🏻‍♀️

    19. John Cameron

      It’s now February 2021 and EVERYONE KNOWS TRUMP could have done FAR MORE to save lives. He LIED through his teeth to stay in office. He is a great big pile of guano.

      There's still no travel restrictions in to the UK, but we did finally impose a mandatory quarantine. Yesterday. Feb 15th 2021.

    22. Tulani Ntombela

      That Pinocchio joke was horrible, buddy, comeon, it's Pinocchio. Try making pedo jokes about actual pedos.

    23. David

      Nero fiddled whilst Rome burned. Told with passion.

    24. Danny Boy

      Well put, John. No we have not and must not forget about what an absolute fuck up of an administration Trump’s was and in at least some ways, still is

    26. Oh_My_Gosh Someone_Commented_

      Every time I watch this particular video, my emotion level soars for all Americans taking this seriously AND my hate for #Trump intensifies. You do a great job John Oliver. #LocktrumpUp

    27. dharkbizkit

      covid realy split the people everywhere in the world. its lifes vs economy and responseability for spreading sickness vs not beeing at fault for infecting 20 people of whch 2 died because people die all the time and no one cares if i had the regular flu. people dont want to wear masks, say that its a burden for them, inhibits them.. well ok, but dont doing it increases the chance of infecting yourself or others and act like it not their problem, nor their fault if someone else gets infected and dies.. at least they dont care, if its random joe that dies because when it hits the own family, then its a problem. i live in germany and people here said: its good, it kills mostly the old ones, the boomers that are so many, they eat up so much money from retirement funds and dont work anymore thus are no profit for the country, only a burden, that its the best thing that could happen to us, they all die early, without anyones fault, so its no genocide, and the retirements fonds can relax and we have a better future. its true for the tax state and yes, but its also degrading to anyones life

    28. ♡AngelinaSkye1695♡

      It doesn't surprise me that Justin Trudeau didn't take action to impose any travel bans until March 21/2020. Honestly, I think they kept our case numbers down because they made the testing restrictions so difficult that people who likely had covid were just told to go home and isolate instead of being tested. I still think it's worse having Justin Trudeau as a prime minister. His loyalties are not with Canadians. Now he and his kiss ass paid off mainstream media stations like CBC are lying to try to make everyone scared so that they will stay home and be told whether they're allowed to work or even protest. It's embarrassing to live in Canada tbh.

    29. Garrett Cummins

      I second everything Oliver said.

    30. Payton Jarrett

      got this stupid virus around Biden's inauguration and I was genuinely excited that there might be someone in the white house who would try to prevent others from getting it.

    31. MoonShadowWolfe

      Well, we all know who wrote the Pinocchio bit, don't we? Good to see you, Daniel O'Brian, DJ DOBeats, it's a hard time to live through but it's good to see you.

      Please Do A Piece on Michael Jackson Hi, I’m writing to you because Last Week Tonight as opposed to other such shows actually cares about issues rather than chasing the headlines. It has been 11 years since Michael Jackson passed away yet to this day what the common consensus is that he is a taboo subject for many. I recall you guys once did a piece on Public Shaming. Michael Jackson was a genius, an abused child. He was strange. He was one of the few major stars from the 80s who came out of the 80s without a heroine addiction. He in his own way did many, Many strange things, but so do most other superstars. And more than others he actually cared. About children, about the earth. About the issues we are discussing to this day. While Icons like Freddy Mercury, Elvis Pressley, Prince, Beetles and many more are known for their good works, Michael is known for the something which he has repeatedly been acquitted for. It’s the truth that anyone looking for will find instantly but due to the “where there is smoke there is a fire” narrative, even 11 years after his death, the new media treats him like a criminal. All his trial pages are open for the public to read. He WAS weird. Making a ranch called neverland, hanging out with children. Trusting people he shouldn’t. But I urge you please cover him, hear beyond the noise like you guys often do. The most successful African American Artist of all time was a humble man child, who respected women, loved children and cared about our environment. He was not a heroine junkie, a private man who did not share his disease even all the way back in 1993 even though he was accused of wanting to become a “White Man”. He was eccentric. Hanging out with animals and caring about them. This article covers multiple sources, some of which I had read previously. Michael Jackson was a multi talented millionaire pop star, who was not an alcoholic, was a caring father, a filial son, Treated women with respect, cared about the planet and it’s beings. The press that constantly kept DASHING him, had found a way to subvert their guilt. All those years of calling him a “Jacko”, “monkey” and many more hurtful things was justified if he was a paedophile. They NEEDED him to be guilty. Such a man cannot exist in Hollywood. Such public shaming had allowed and to this day allows Michael to be a victim to all this slander. Please do a piece, if not one that exonerates him then one that once and for all cements the fact the Michael Jackson, the greatest pop star, the first African American Idol was a paedophile. Not through unknown sources or flimsy headlines but through concrete proof. A news echoing in a closed chamber will not reach anyone, most fans who what to know the truth know it, other people will read the headlines but not the explanations. It’s about time the general public knows. Please do a piece on Michael, the blatant mistreatment by the media, The systematic racism he faced during his trials. Please don’t let the first African American Singer be remembered for the things he did not do, He was weird, weird enough to annoy Freddy Mercury with Bubbles feedbacks, weird enough to let kids crack raw eggs over Michael Jackson, Weird enough to play water balloons with children. But he was not a paedophile and the world needs to acknowledge that. He was in no way a “Perfect Human” but he tried his best to live right and we should not punish him for doing that. On this year please exonerate this Black man, the Justice System has done it two decades ago, it’s about time everyone else does. Please do a piece on Michael Jackson. #spreadtheawareness #justiceformichael #hedeservedbetter

      Greetings from February 1st 2021 450 thousand Americans are dead from COVID COVID.... trump should be held accountable

    34. Max Skinner

      trump is covid

    35. CC- 1010

      Imagine If talke about Bolsonaro Brazil's president he would have a stroke hearing what he said about covid and the fact that he didn't like Biden for who knows why

    36. Sherbet_Bomb

      Obama or Bush would have stopped this.

    37. Mark Branson

      I am an essential worker at a truck stop on a major corridor highway. For the past year we've been doing everything we can to keep things from spreading. We saw at least 5k people every day through our stop and every time we would wear a mask or wipe down our workspace we'd get these nasty looks from people. I had a guest cough on My counter, so when she left I reached down and grabbed my own (I had to buy germicidal cleaner) bottle of cleaning solution and sprayed down the counter, the next customer just looked annoyed and said "oh you believe in THAT" I was trying to protect her, and she was getting indignant. I am very close with my parents and for months I would wonder if I was going to kill them either this disease. It made me move out and get my own apartment, because I couldn't forgive myself if they got sick. My dad, an engineering contractor lost his job. No expansions were needed when shit was getting locked down, and in August he walked into our garage and blew his head off. I spoke to an audience of maybe 40 of his closest colleagues at the funeral, a sea of empty chairs, and the worst part is that I'm alone, I can't go to a bar or an arcade, or do something social because of the social distancing, I couldn't see my mom for six weeks because she caught it and I had to watch her through the glass door, wondering if she was going to die too. I'm still scared, I still wonder if this customer is going to give it to me. I want this nightmare to be over, I want to eat at a restaurant, I want to go bowling. I also want to be treated like I fucking matter by our government, I poured my blood and tears into this shit, and as "Essential" as everyone says I am, I really don't feel it. I wasn't even eligible for stimulus checks, I was claimed as a dependent in my parents 2018 taxes because I was in school. So fuck this system, fuck the people who turned a blind eye to the reaper, fuck the system that let me slip through the cracks, and fuck the people who claimed to have done something when all they did was talk. Burn It down. Bring the storm. I hope biden does something good for us

      John Oliver has helped me, a 17 year Republican, see the issues with my worldview and the worldview of my party. A disease-ravaged country and the death of my aunt while the President I helped elect touted bullshit about the "fake media" making it a bigger deal than it really was opened my eyes to the fact that the thing he had been feeding me all along - "I'll protect this country" - was exactly the opposite of what he was doing. Sure, he was great at making the Left my enemy while a very real enemy was moving across our country and world at breakneck speed. Then, January 6th forced me to finally take action in my own life and change my political party. When talking about politics people usually always shoot from the hip, closing their minds to what others think and feel, and usually offer feelings of their own instead of sound arguments. But, these sound arguments in an easy to swallow setting have allowed me to put down my armor and really see the fuck-ups for what they are. Your and your team's work matters, Mr. Oliver.

      1. Don'tSpikeMyDrink

        I want to say im proud of you for changing your ways rebecca

        sorry but how did you vote

    39. Cameron McCaslin

      I buried my mom last week. She was a nurse and didn't deserve to spend the last two months of her life in a hospital isolated from family and friends. People this disease is terrible and anyone who says otherwise can say it to my 12 year old sister whos mom died two days after her birthday!

      1. The All Seeing Eye

        So sorry for your loss. Stay strong.

    40. ZT1ST

      @0:51; I can't quite recall the timeline - did we know that Covid-19 had a symptom of a lack of smell by the point this joke was made? Because to be honest, until the pandemic is over, it may be quite a while before we can have a full episode on scented candle fraud, given...well...the pandemic.

    41. tiger talks

      Trump won!

      bye bye dude, its over

    43. John Badge

      I am proudly Australian and here in Sydney if you walk down the street and ask anybody about how Covid 19 affects them the most likely response that you'll get is a shrug and a reply of "not much". Our elected leaders actually give a shit about us and quickly responded to the threat and rather than bitch about our "freedom" most of the public followed the medical advise that was updated immediately after any change and endured the isolations and lockdowns, those that didn't follow the advise were fined and faced a possible 5 year jail term if deemed a danger to the public. With your leader .............. he doesn't care about anything but himself and where that has gotten you ? Our prime minister wouldn't last 6 months if he behaved this way !!!!!!

    44. DChemTech

      Still better pens than Mike

    45. prettyfar33

      My doctor thinks that the hospital is just making it up how many people have died...just so they can make more money!!! What a FOOL!!! And he holds the power over me and my drugs!!!

    46. Diya Gore

      I love how Sikhs are shaving their beards to save their patients but white Americans are complaining that they have to wear masks when they go out. Yes this is bitter and angry.

    47. barrych mak

      Trump was correct back in Feb 2020 , that he foreseen Xi would be able to have the COVID-19 under control within China . However Trump was wrong that the virus would disappear magically and totally not prepared for the worst .

      I'm only viewing this in Jan, '21. I've always appreciated just how Mr. O. can get to the point by slowly changing the balance between humour (heavy at the start) to reality (heavy at the end) just before the real knife comes out - and his delivery of the death blow is as worthy as any Shakespearean denouement. John, this is Emmy/BAFTA quality material, and I would be extremely sad if it doesn't get recognition: script, staging, and presentation are - as ever - top quality.

    57. goodwood1052221

      then you find trump never had any plan in place

    60. Sabrina Pandoli

      January 27, 2021... still hearing about Covid

    61. MERCS2046

      Jan 2021 still talking about covid. Wrong again mr trump.

    62. dayl

      When you realize all the celebs, establishment politicians and Democrat base are makes it a lot easier to not listen to all this fabrication. Joe's been in office a week now and said there's nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the virus... So J Oliver ..WHERE THE FUCK IS YOUR VIDEO ON BIDEN?? Biden is comedic gold and these assholes won't make fun of him ...ha! Ok...

      1. Stephen2462

        "Everyone who says things contrary to my beliefs are liars" riiiiiiiight. Not immediately; most of the crap that Trump did to screw up our ability to deal with it were in the preparation and early stages of the pandemic. It's not like Biden can just snap his fingers and undo those mistakes. At least his administration should be able to put together a competent plan for administering the vaccine, which should help in the long run. Because as a President, Biden is downright unremarkable in comparison to Trump. Sounds to me like you're just salty he isn't regurgitating Republican propaganda.

    63. Marcus Walters

      I'm watching this and wondering what Boris Johnson's responses were. Shame we don't have a similar show here.

    64. joao gomes

      Looks like this Corona fella was just waiting for Trump to be president to break out

    65. John McKnight

      The 6.8K people who down voted this video are probably dead.

    66. Jacqueline Garewal

      Americans made a President who had no idea of governing or politics. And no attempt to learn. EGO !!!

    67. MrsSlocombes PuddyCat

      😳 Is that pen thing actually real? Or is it a satire takeoff by Alec Baldwin or some other Trump impersonator?! I view Trump as a moron, but surely THIS cannot be real !!!!!

    68. masterninja360

      Am I the only one who thinks Dan O'Brien snuck in a Obsessive Pop culture disorder rant when John ranted for more then 30 full seconds about Pinocchio & Geppetto?

    69. Xander Fulton

      It's been about two months and I can, indeed, confirm that we have stopped talking about COVID in my house.....we just call it "The Crisis"

    70. J VC

      500 people die in a plane crash = bad. 5000 Americans dying daily = boring news. I’m so glad to be done with Trump math.

    71. Richard Sutcliffe

      500 fake deaths against 4000 real deaths, A DAY ?

    72. Maria Delgado

      Over 400k Americans dead in Jan 2021

      1. Infinity Stepping Stone

        This episode of LWT, unfortunately, keeps getting more relevant every day.

    73. AtheistIII

      The really sad thing is that Trump really may have done what he could. Not everything that the office of POTUS would have enabled him to do, but everything that he was mentally capable of.

      1. AtheistIII

        @Jabroni As they say, a bit of A, a bit of B, also it seems to me that Drumpf may be genuinely incapable of caring about anyone who isn't him. Sometimes I feel like he really doesn't get why people make such a big deal about COVID, because as long as he isn't in danger personally, nobody has a reason to make such a big fuzz.

      2. Jabroni

        it is. you either say he is mentally incapable of handling the crisis or what we saw was his conscious response to the pandemic.... eitherway, he shouldve been removed from office years ago.

    74. Jeffrey Jones

      Does anyone else remember when this was a comedy show?

    75. 名無しのヮの

    77. How About No

      And I thought the UK mismanaged the pandemic

      1. lymer5

        They also did. But the US mismanaged it worse than them.

    78. Helmut Mey

      im sorry I know this isn't politically correct but this really is China's fault, they tried economically punishing any country who tried speaking up about having an investigation or even mentioned China... That selfish country literally ruined the world for at least a year...

      1. Jabroni

        thats a deflection. yes. i agree, china did things that made it harder for the world to anticipate and prepare for the pandemic. however, they in no way shape or form obstructed the way we as a nation dealt with the virus once it took hols here in the US. we accept you point, stop deflecting and talk about the main conversation proposed here, which is how poorly the former administration handled the virus once it arrived. i know its not "polically correct to say" but what youre doing here is a fucking poison to honest discussion. instead of talking about what actually happened here, you just yell that its china's fault and thus Trump couldve done nothing better and that over 400,000 americans were going to die no matter what. honestly mate, grow up, we can no longer afford this bullshit festering in our political conversations.

    79. Zorgdub

      To be fair, Trump did do the best he can. The problem is that this means he did about as well as a random 7yo kid.

    80. dieknakkermetdathaar

      I will bet my left nut that before March Trump will say he did all the groundwork, and that is why Biden was able to handle the rona so well

    81. Qassim Membery

      Trump's pandemic response was basically seeing someone accidentally drop a lit match, standing there and watching the fire grow, and then denying that the fire had spread to his section of the building.
