      Coming back to this one after Rush croaked is some strange form of vindication

    3. Dangerous Socialist

      Well, Rush Limbaugh's dead now. Good Riddance.

    4. flamingRose100

      Ahh rush is finally dead

    5. Stevie

      damn, hate to see it, at&t is the best, business down reigns surprise, Oliver.

      Don’t buy people’s breastmilk to fight coronavirus, it won’t work. Plus you’re taking it away from the babies and Homelanders that need it.

      480K Deaths From Cigarettes? 360K Deaths From Swimming Pools? Where On Earth Is He Getting These Numbers?

    10. Yandere cat

      Its so chilling to see the number '22' for US deaths. Looking at it now: 487,000

    11. Zachery Jequinto

      While covid was at the time of the study was 80% mild cases. That means 1 in 5 cases would be severe. And the flu has 0.1% of death, and that kills 60k people a year. Covid is 10x that. That's why this is much worse. And again they aren't the same.

    12. Bill Sugden

      lmfao ;). Love John Oliver , Thank you America for electing Someone's so stupid the world says , Rob Ford who ? Cheers from Canada ..

    13. G. Waits4Gainz

      9 months later, we're looking at 500k dead.

    16. Timo Kampwerth

      I really don't enjoy defending that dumbass Limbaugh, but the 3 usual causes for a Cold are Rhinovirus, Adenovirus and Coronavirus so he has a point when he calls it the common cold. That said, the common Cold, like most deseases, has symptom severity on a scale. A "weak" variant of Corona causes the Cold but more agressive variants cause SARS and that's what Covid is. I think the officials wanted to avoid a panic by not calling it SARS but doing that led to the problem: not calling it by it's established name made many underestimate the disease. Covid / Corona: Never heard of those, who cares. (Unless you studied medicine or biology, you had never heard of that at the time) SARS: Holy shit this is serious! (possible public panig -> avoid if possible)

      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

        get outta here, dude, your whole article is insulting.

    19. John Hays

      Oh gfy John Oliver...this was a straight media scamdemic...what's the death toll 18 and under in CA...well w a population of 60 mil (virtually 1/5th the US population) you would guess in the thousands right hell it would have to be to justify this response...did ya guess 2 IN A YEAR...then you win the prize for reality vs fantasy...yes if ur a senior citizen (particularly in your 80s or 90s and about to die) then somehow covid will become your cause of death bc ya know that's SCIENCE 🤪...but if you're anyone else you can take your dollar store joke mask off and tell the coronavirus to go fuck itself bc u have basically 0 chance of dying or severe illness bc you're not already about to die.

      1. Stevie

        no it wasn't, gfy, john.

      2. lostmau5

        I will assume the ellipses you used in your paragraph are due to your low IQ brain loading, because that really hurt to read.

      Why does Rush need a Mac Pro tower and two printers? He must be doing a lot more 8K video editing/3D rendering/machine virtualisation/flyers than I would have thought

    46. The Thoughtful Sheep another video tackling misinformation head-on. Amusing and informative response to a social media anti-vax piece. worth watching and sharing.

    47. B Ross

      God, we were so close. If only we didn't have a president who thinks the right way to run a country is like running a TV show and treating the opposition as rival networks fighting for ratings/popular opinion, plus a congress ran by Mitch McConnell who was never taught how to share as a child, then maybe, just maybe, we could have not only listened to the science, as we initially mostly-sorta did, at least in the beginning, i.e. the CARES Act and the stay-at-home mandates. But then, while we quite literally were, "flattening the curve", and were prepared to actually, potentially handle this thing with at least some degree of sense and care, came the chants of "We can't let the cure be worse the disease", and the almighty precious economy could potentially be threatened, and we had suffered enough. So we had to get "back to normal" and we had to do it asap, we were sure the virus would understand. So, while the, "science" said, No, the worst possible thing you could do right now is a half-measure. We could potentially get this thing under control if we just hold out for a little longer. It is, inherently a sacrifice, but business and the economy don't need to suffer. They can be helped through this, just like everyone else, by the government. That is what it is there for. The government actually did the same thing and bailed out the big banks a few years ago, largely against the wishes of the general people. This time the general population are the ones who need help, bailing out. For the people who truly need it, the ones most effected by this pandemic - stimulus checks, unemployment assistance, rent forgiveness, housing assistance, eviction protection, childcare assistance, and GD for the love of god most of all, HEALTHCARE. And we almost did pass another bill, one that would do, some. Definitely not all nor nearly enough, but some of those things. And as the clock was about to strike midnight, as the CARES act was set to expire, as the democrats and republicans had both presented their respective "ideas", or bills, and argued over them, and as the resident democrat in charge of their side of these negotiations decided to compromise and meet in the middle, just at least so that something got passed before they were set to leave for a few weeks, with millions of Americans livelihoods hanging in the balance, what does Mitch McConnell do? He says no. He says, referring to the aforementioned "benefits" that were up for determination in their bills, for the most desperate people, those most likely to be effected and most unable to handle the effects of this pandemic, Mr. McConnell, Senate Majority Leader of the United States of America, he says, "Enough's enough." This man supposedly speaks for us, Americans. He is elected to represent the interests of Americans, but what he did can in no way be interpreted as such. It essentially came down to the Dems wanting a $3 trillion deal and the Reps wanting a $1 trillion deal and at the last hour the Dems saying ok, we'll meet in the middle with a proposed compromise deal for $2 trillion, and the Reps still saying no. And because of that, millions and millions of Americans who either lost jobs because of the pandemic, or are looking for work and can't find it because of the pandemic, can't pay their rent, can't afford food for their children, etc., would stop getting all of that assistance, including the additional $600 in unemployment from the federal government on July 31st. And lets be clear, starting around August 1st, and going on through to today right before Christmas, this is the time when people are hurting the most. This is when they need that assistance more than ever. And if you are truly worried about "the economy", the economic impact of this pandemic, and lets be clear it was going to be huge no matter what, how could there be a better way to help the said "economy" than making sure the people who have lost their jobs and have no income and can't find work because the pandemic is worse than ever, have extra money in their bank accounts from unemployment assistance and continuous stimulus checks. If people can, they will spend money at their local stores, they will get carryout from their favorite restaurants, they will order things from places like Target and Best Buy. Since that's all men like Mitch McConnell care about, worshipping at the golden altar of the almighty dollar, it helps to break it down in terms they understand. People can't spend money on shit when they get laid off because their company shut down due to the public health crisis and then the Paycheck Protection that they were getting cut off along with their additional unemployment payments.

      Hate to agree with Rush Limbah on any points but he is right on coronaviruses being not uncommon. Technically the coronavirus family is one of three primary virus types - of the 200 odd viruses - that make up the common cold. What makes it much more dangerous is the fact that it wasn't a human coronavirus, which means that our immune response is much weaker compared to "normal" human coronaviruses. The fact that it is alien to us makes it more dangerous. The comparison to common flus are actually quite valid if you consider how it killed of masses of indigenous populations when the European colonists arrived in the Americas.

      The way they cut the Dr Phil part, is incredibly misleading though. This was not HIS opinion, he was explaining that this is what the corona-deniers are saying. And then he went on to explain how those people are completely wrong, how corona is waaaay more dangerous than flu and why taking these measures is totally necessary.

      Let me tell you as an "essential" worker , John covering this subject makes me feel more sane because the amount of people not taking this seriously only proves how selfish people can be. I am a 26 year old male working at a liquor store in the Dallas area and the way people have been acting about it had made me utterly infuriated. I wipe down my counters and cooler doors and the main entrance and despite that I've had people (customers) make fun of me for it. The worst part is I found out recently that one of my favorite customers passed away due to COVID-19 because her husband came into my store and told me what had happened. Retail in general is a nightmare and yes I want things to go back to normal too but cmon people. WAKE UP.

      Update from April: All of the pundits believe that the White House (and many others) under estimated the size of the coronavirus “pandemic.” White House staffers and a reporter discussed the situation near an open mic. A new report suggested that the most recent coronavirus statistics revealed only 1/10 of the number of deaths projected by official sources and mainstream media. Circumstantial evidence points to a loosey-goosey approach to assessing the effect of the virus. Hypothetically, a 75-year-old man enters the hospital with cancer, AIDS, malaria, and a bite from a rabid dog. Should he be tested for the coronavirus antibody, his cause of death could be “presumed” or “probable coronavirus.” This is medical heresy. Experts suggested that everyone will need a miracle vaccine. Dr. Fauci suggested that the entire world should be vaccinated. The good doctor has an interest in a manufacturer of vaccines, and there’s a significant possibility that he would profit should the manufacturer administer 7.5 billion vaccinations. Covid 19 takes the low hanging fruit - the elderly, people with pre-existing conditions, and the uninsured. (Untermensch)

      1. Nat Schramel

        Umm no you can apply the same logic to the flu virus (which people routinely get vaccinated for) except that the coronavirus is 10x more lethal and causes cardiovascular problems we probably won’t fully understand the impacts of for years to come into the future.
