    1. I was framed For my parents crimes

      When Barr broke with Trump and announced that there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud and then resigned was no act of courage. It was a calculated move because he could read the tea leaves and knew Trump was a lost cause. Barr is an astute politician just like McConnell and saw that the crap was going to hit the fan and tried to remove himself from the spread. He’s a slimy weasel but politically smarter than Trump. Which is a low Barr to cross.

      Translate this East across the Atlantic, and you get Modern Thatcherite Conservatism. Wish there was someone with the wit (and unbiased platform) to say things like this in the yUK.

      1. potaterjim

        There's a great deal of irony in knowing John is from the UK

    3. Bilal Malik

      John Oliver, two words: Lyme Disease

    4. Ava Catherine

      That’s definitely a faked bagpipe video lol. That’s a famous recording of Scotland the Brave with drums which you can’t see and he’s not even squeezing the bag or using his fingers at the right time for the song. Plus if that were live, the bagpipes would be making a WAY louder sound.

      "Telling federal prosecutors to considering charging protesters with sedition" if he really wanted to charge someone with sedition all he had to do is just wait 2 more months

    12. Anuraj Sidhu

      Make show on farmers protest in India. Please

    13. Georgia Overdrive

      As terrible as Barr might be, his bagpipe playing is actually very good.

    14. Mannowar

      I don’t like this man but I must admit, the man can play some bag pipes

    15. Onyte Hazekamp

      He's not a good enough man to play the bagpipes. No integrity.

      Pepper spray is obviously water in a spray bottle. There's nothing chemical or irritating about it. Everyone knows that lol

    17. The Bass Player

      His views and professional actions are insane, I agree. However, I don't think he's a true idealist, but simply a dedicated employee to his bosses. He might be obsessed over authority, but who wouldn't want such a devoted worker?

      1. Rob

        Keep in mind this man who is such a devoted employee still said Obamagate was bullshit and there was no voter fraud in the 2020 election.

      This just explains why Barr left office at the end of Dec. before the Jan. 6th riots. He didn’t want to be culpable. He knows the law better than Trump’s closest advisors. Barr didn’t want to deal with another possible Trump impeachment knowing that Trump was lying about the results of a stolen election and waited to see how the courts handled the facts in each state that was being contested. Once Trump lost his appeals Barr knew how this could possibly end and left town as they call it. Plus I am sure personally he was done dealing with Trump’s BS.

    20. Cryptameria•

      someone tell me when the Right won Jesus? I missed the memo from God that he was unfriending me.

    21. Maria Delgado

      I don’t see why Barr wants this🤔🤔🤔

    22. McLovin

      William Barr is on record for saying anyone engaging in violence during the BLM protests should be charged with sedition. He should be pressed about that right now!

    23. Ruby Rodd

      What are DMs? Ive heard that in Simon Peg and Nick Frost movies. Are they like British skate shoes?

      1. The Screwfly Solution

        Doc Marten boots. Used to be heavy-duty boots favoured by skinheads, more recently made lighter, gone upmarket and fashionable.

    24. Bradley Neher

      Barr’s opinion at 13:20 is especially callous: “So, you’re saying if I disrespect you, then you’ll get the hell out of my neighborhood and stop terrorizing us? Hold my Sno-Cone.”

    25. Anzac-A1

      Barr thinks the President has unlimited power, like a king. Even though the US declared independance, because they no longer wanted to be ruled by a king.

    26. Matt Florey

      If a used condom had a face, it would be Barr's.

      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. theobjectivestandard.com/2020/02/justice-for-michael-jackson/ 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

      Sad part is that even he was able to stand up to Trump.

    29. shane prosser

      So Barr doesn't believe in policing by consent - he believes in enforcing the law in the sense of Judge Dredd 'I am the law' sense

      Hmmm, charging rioters with sedition, wonder how barr feels about that now?

    38. Ngozi Ikeji

      You are the Attorney General for all the people not just for the Republicans. Shame on you!

    39. Ngozi Ikeji

      The thing is that Barr thinks that he is smarter than everyone listening, that’s why he could blurt out that Star Wars speech about “corruptly and bad” and thinks he’s making sense. He things he can bamboozle the audience. He is posing as an intellectual, he needs to be told -HE IS NOT an intellectual.

    40. Ngozi Ikeji

      Yes “discussing separation of powers before dropping his pacifier” is a punch of untruths that has bloated his head so much so that he thinks he can do whatever he wants when given a position of power.

    41. Andrew Howland

      He describes Police the way you would describe the mafia. We respect them and they “protect” us.

    42. Sigismondo Tancredi

      Bagpipes and octopi are cool af.

    43. Andrew Mcguire

      Did he just insult the bagpipes SCOTLAND WE ATTACK!!!!!!

    44. James Cornett

      If your biggest praise for someone is that they're the "adult in the room", maybe that should be your first clue that the bar has been set VERY low by your own choice.

    45. Some Guy

      I've long wondered how it is that WIlliam Barr is serving as Attorney-General of the United States, when he doesn't even possess the integrity to serve fries at a McDonald's drive-thru.

    46. DSQueenie

      I’m angry that when I google Irn Bru maker A. G. Barr this guy comes up.

    47. TheAverlorn

      This guy is a narcissistic police person's wet dream come to fruition.

    48. Hunter Wallish

      William Barr does a great Joker impression at 13:13

    49. Hunter Wallish

      Was anyone else entertained by what the glass table does to John's tie?

    50. Maxwell Danger

      "...The bagpipes, basically a noisy sex doll for octopusses" is probably one of the best things I've ever heard.

    51. Nutsilica: Renaissance

      You are unclear on the definition of authoritarian... you are saying you want authoritarianism if it protects you from getting sick but at the same time you agree with the commenter that claims to not like authoritarianism. If you don’t like authoritarianism you shouldn’t like lockdowns and you should favour free speech. If you want to give up those values so you don’t get sick, it means you FAVOUR the totalitarian solutions

      1. chris boyle

        We can want a democracy and to live at the same time

    52. Cooro SnowFox

      The impeachment process... So well it happened twice!

    53. Kiani Francis

      in Barr's favour, he did draw up a vast list of charges against the kind of people who riot at the Capitol - sedition, treason, conspiracy, damaging statues etc. - back in the summer. Should come in useful.

    54. Ashton Bradley

      The only good thing about William Barr is that he actually does really on the bagpipes.

    55. Jack Tingey

      I am completely lost. How can Barr be a conservative? I thought conservatives thought big government power is evil, but isn’t a powerful executive part of the definition of big government? How is an incredibly powerful executive, military, police, etc. not big government, but sensible expanded healthcare and environmental protection is big government?

    56. 4DCResinSmoker

      Just another corrupt lawyer who's addicted to power and the influence it brings.

    57. Danny Average

      Sedition you say.......🤔

    58. travis303

      "Babies and Dogs know that" Was the fact that he happen to say words abbreviated "BAD" (Babies and dogs" part of the joke or just a coincidence?

    59. Derek Clayborn

      "Fun College stories like burning your draft card." Ohhhh that is so going to come back to bite you my friend

      1. DatLilGun 01

        @Mike Maximus Should the rioters *at the capitol* face the same sentence in your view? *Forgot to specify that so that was the edit

      2. Mike Maximus

        @DatLilGun 01 you noticed that but you missed the part were bar wants rioters to face 20 years on sedition charges.

      3. Mike Maximus

        @DatLilGun 01 you trumpies are reaaaaly reaching now

      4. DatLilGun 01

        @ParagrafenPapagei The statement within itself is hypocritical. You just watch, once season eight comes out, he is going to do a piece on the capitol riots, blame them for commiting a crime, but in actively said burning a draft card was okay. Both are not okay.

      5. ParagrafenPapagei

        Why? You think the British guy has problems for burning his hypothetical draft card?

    61. Happy Thoughts

      We're like actually gonna hold you to the bagpipe thing now, you know?

    62. Dec Fairlight

      13:28 respect is earned not taken, also the communities payed for the damn police, if the police aren't willing to do their job cause people gave them shit for randomly killing people with no repercussions then the police don't get their paychecks.

    63. king of games and anime

      Can the bagpipes be used to play any song besides that one? I have never heard anything else played in a bagpipe.

    72. Jonathan Bailey

      Fast forward Bill Barr has quit amongst many of Trumps puppets and the Capitol has just been broken into by our own and hasn't since 1814 i believe so we are doing a great job on picking 👍 assholez to be president.
