      That week (actually more like three days, but damn if it didn't feel longer) waiting for the mail voting results to come in was one of the longest weeks of my life. Unfortunately, when it was done and the result beyond all doubt, some people chose to use that entirely predictable and expected delay in mail voting results to sow lies about fraud and incite a coup attempt. They're still using it to try to restrict voting and even allow Red state legislatures to overturn results they don't like. Scum.

    5. A H

      Disturbing how many Americans want to live under an authoritarian leader. The country cannot survive the way it currently is.

      Republican voters are liars just like their corrupt politicians.

    7. YuniQ9 Gaming

      This show has been the definition of propaganda for years now... i used to like john oliver, before the obvious puppetry.

    8. Montesama314

      It is June of the next year, and we're STILL listening to Repubs bitching about the election result. Also, the obvious attack on the Capitol, which they're also trying to pretend didn't happen AND simultaneously pretending it was someone else's fault.

      June 2021 and he still hasn't conceded, plus he's still suing people and refuses to accept reality. That is, as Trump himself would say, SAD.

    17. Stephen Wright

      Treat Trump like the Ernst Röhm he aspires to be. Hitler ordered Röhm's murder. Can we afford to do any less with the Tangerine Jesus of the Proud Boys etc.?

      What they meant about the chaos and what John Oliver said trump is playing a dangerous game, they depicted the January 6 Capitol Riots

      I'm from the future. Harm was done by humouring him

    21. Mr. Duane

      Oh past John. If you only knew what was to come.

    22. Matt Wilson

      2:52 “what is the downside for humouring him for this little time?” I wonder is that came up in court or just lingers as a poor tasting joke

    23. Alex Landherr

      June 6, 2021: He’s America’s first deadbeat ex-president and still facing a truckload of legal troubles.

    24. Tomas Vrabec

      I never quite understand what right wing media is, or left for that matter. I am from a country that has multiple party system and there isn't really a majority unless coalitions are formed. Thus media can't really take a side and the parties are forced to cooperate to get things through. Works alright for smaller nations.

    25. Wylie Richardson

      Wow, with January 6th being so far behind but still leaving such a mark, it's just weird. Like, everyone almost saw it coming. It seemed so definitely that violence would break out. But it was was actually real. They actually almost killed members of congress and stopped the counting of the votes. Honestly, as bad as that day was, it was almost so much worse. There were multiple people including pence who just got away in time. If security backed down, if not for the brave acts of a few particular people, if these people moved even a bit faster, there would have been multiple assassinations in congress. With as much build-up and dangerous rhetoric, it is nuts that republicans blocked an independent commission to investigate. Trump was like a parasite that made America sick, and we are still dealing with the ramifications of trump. He should be tried, convicted, and imprisoned. He is not a good person, and he was not a good leader. good riddance he is gone, and hopefully, he dies before the midterms.

      You humour a rumour monger and the country ends up in a stupor.

    30. The Thanks

      The trumpist claiming to have witnessed fraud from the Biden campaign, most definitely did it believing trump would have made them a national hero.

    31. Vin Unleaded

      😅So... hope FIblock doesn't flag this, but.... When I replied in a comment to this video that Nazi racism was far worse than the USA's, a person replied with a claimed Chinese proverb, basically: "The coward who runs 50 steps laughs at the coward who ran 100"; how far is irrelevant, cowardice is cowardice; similarly, racism is racism. I replied the following: 👉I am sure we both agree that if Nazi racism is100 steps and USA racism is 50 steps, then my statement "Nazi racism was...worse than the USA" is correct, agreed? I also CERTAINLY never said the USA was blameless. 👍On your point that "racism is still racism" not only do I agree, The Bible Itself says God agrees, because all sin is the same. The thing is, we're human, not God. We are limited in our resources, our focus... such as identifying and encouraging the end of racism in others -- heck, even in ourselves. Therefore, it IS more important to focus on bigger issues, even as we should also continue addressing relatively smaller ones. [Forgot to say: All sin is equally sin, but not equal in this life's consequences, therefore not equal in penalty, punishment and prevention.... unless you want to give the death penalty to a jaywalker?] I bet there were Civil Rights leaders before and during WW2. I also bet most of them would agree taking down the Third Reich was more important at that time. Regardless of my race, I know I'd rather deal with racism toward me than being free from unfair discrimination at the expense of the EXTERMINATION OF OTHER PEOPLE! 😓 I also feel the USA realized its error in those metaphorical 50 steps, beat itself up -- quite literally -- and picked itself up before taking steps in the right direction. While it's not at the "0% racism" mark yet, it's heading closer. Slowed pace sometimes? Definately. Outright stopped? Maybe. But I don't believe we've ever taken steps BACK to slavery. I'm not even sure 0% racism is possible in this life... but helping folks get "less cowardly"is better than ONLY pointing out how cowardly they are! Let's help with good action and realistic plans of action! Agreed?🙂 --J Edit: The other person then disagreed, adding "how dumb can you be !!!", and I replied: {"How dumb can you be !!!" I can be as dumb as I want, it's my right!!😆😆} Skip a few lines: {Can we agree that 50 ≠ 100, and Nazi racism in those same ten years was worse than American racism? (Look up 1936 Olympics.) If not, can you tell me where racism doesn't exist, or where on Earth it's "good enough?"🤔 --J} And I added: {P.S. Agree or disagree, I hope our acquaintance can be closer to friends than enemies. 🙂☮ --J} (☮ means "peace".) Because ☮ > 🤬&🤜💥; ☮ = 🇺🇸. Formula four success.

      1. JeyRuff

        Bit of a bonus for any nerds🤓: I started replying to a certain FIblockr 2 days ago afternoon (2021May28Fri), but then googled "slavery in Germany." I found a Wikipedia article, "Timeline of Abortion of Slavery and Serfdom (FIblock won't let me post a link, you'll have to find it yourself if you want). Starting at the 1500's, I spent almost all non-sleeping hours learning, including many "rabbit hole trips", before finally finishing at "present day", posting the above comment Saturday evening. (me =🤓🤓🤓🤓! 😅) Guess what? Countries of the world, for their various reasons, began to oppose forms of slavery of different groups of people in certain areas, growing gradually to include all/most known forms for all/most people in all/most areas in their control. The Racist South USA was one of the last major powers to officially end slavery with enforceability.... but North US states were some of the first! Yet out of all these countries and territories dealing with forms of slavery, "Germany" isn't mentioned until the 1890 Brussels Conference Act AGAINST slavery (Unless you count Germany in the medieval Holy Roman Empire condemning slavery), then something similar in 1904, then isn't mentioned in the article's timeline again until 1935 when Nazi-controlled Germany would bring it back in HUGE measure! 😠 Note, that means either Germany wasn't big on having slavery until Nazism, or their anti-slavery efforts weren't worth mentioning in the timeline until 1890. (Or the article is seriously flawed.) It says up to 15 million were kidnapped and forced to work, if not killed before abduction (probably not included in the 15M!) Let's not forget the 6M Jews killed (probably included in the 15M). To think, all that in just 10 years. I don't even think that number includes atrocities in what was then Fascist Italy and Japan, countries that also invaded their surroundings. So, say the USA's racism is 50 steps. Does it really compare to Nazi Germany's 1000 steps?!🤔 ➡️ Like I said before, let's help end racism and ALL OTHER forms of SUPREMACY (Superiorism & Inferiorism) by first checking OUR OWN SELF, and then helping others with good action and realistic plans of action! 🙂 --J (If anyone can read this, then thanks, FIblock!)

      If your Uncle is a nightmare and you're still friends on Facebook... Someone has either been reading my Facebook or I'm in REALLY good company. It's like watching a shit reality show ...on my newsfeed.

    41. Brian Tedder

      It's mind boggling how accurate so many of John and co's predictions have been. Going back and re-watching some of these segments has been very interesting.

      1. Brian Tedder

        The predictions were about the dangers of provoking the right wing radicals that led up to the insurrection at the capital. This has nothing to do with the summer of 2020. Did you even watch the segment?

      2. ArgentumEmperio

        Not to downplay Oliver's predictions but... These things have been known and written books about, everything from the explanation of how the riots during the 2020 summer came to be, to claiming fraudulent elections, for over a thousand years The most crystal clear example I have, that I use to explain the summer of riots, is from Thomas Hobbes, an English philosopher from the 1600-century He wrote a book called "The Leviathan" and it explains, in great detail, how this past summer in the USA came to be ... the book is over 350 years old Absolutely no offense... but all of this has been obvious and easy to predict for centuries Oliver is simply a well read man with a well read team of researchers and they add comedy to philosophy, science, news, and concepts that are sometimes thousands of years old

    66. Stryfe's Point

      Yeah, that steady diet worked wonders for an enraged mob to unleash a deadly insurrection the day after a major democratic victory in Georgia. It also stalled a traditional transition process while covid 19 infection cases soared & its death toll surged as he was getting richer from his grifting, avoiding any accountability and offering pardons galore but after all, what's the downside of humoring a narcissistic loser for a little bit of time.

    67. Ashley Davies

      “Good job new son!” 🤣🤣🤣

    68. Jaz Helton

      It really breaks my heart that people decided to abandon their principles, betray their fellow countrymen’s right to vote, and slide right into defense of fascism and coups that would tear this country apart- all for this disgusting, pea brained, gutless, disgrace of a wanna be dictator? All because he told them being offensive and leaning into white supremacy was actually their right? All because “he tells it like it is” which is just code for he’s a lying racist who other lying racists vibe with? He came through with NOTHING he promised for any of the supporters, conned them out of money, and worked against their best interests at every turn- but he made liberals mad so they had to back him to the point they betrayed their country and supposed values. It’s really wild. He didn’t even have to be intelligent or particularly fearsome to get so many people to follow him off a cliff. It makes me think humans are too stupid to survive.

    69. Nick

      Man, things really escalated quickly and exactly how we worried it would. Kinda funny how that works

    70. R Boss

      6 months and a riot later and were still dealing with this shit.

      🤣🤣🤣🤣 can't help but love John

    72. Wastelander 2281

      This guy has literally done a video which is on THIS channel which went on and on about how the voting machines are susceptible to fraud.....and btw he is not funny. He just sound funny because he is English.

      1. Stephen2462

        @Wastelander 2281 Nope. What JO discussed in his previous video are examples of election fraud, not voter fraud. Basically, the things Republicans are claiming happened, that JO debunked in this video, is different from what he discussed in the previous video that you're referring to. And even if they weren't, he was only discussing them as a possibility, that's not the same thing as claiming it happened.

      2. Wastelander 2281

        @Stephen2462 you are not making sense and I'm not bias. Just so you know I'm English and have thought Trump is an A Hole on many, many occasions. If there was voter fraud one way of doing it would be to use those machines. If you cannot accept that then it is you who is trying to get things to fit your narrative.

      3. Stephen2462

        @Wastelander 2281 Because potential issues with voting machines does NOT equate to a massive coordinated conspiracy to rig the election via voter fraud. Completely different things. You're just conflating them to accommodate your bias.

      4. Wastelander 2281

        @Stephen2462 Dude, just think about what you are saying. How can the claims be "wild" if it is also acknowledged that there is a "potential issue"???? Don't let your hatred of one subject blind you to the facts of another.

      5. Tyrone Valdéz-Krüger

        He'd certainly be funnier if he adapted to your political stance. Okay his accent matters, it sounded funny when he said that Trump was an @sshole

    73. Music Athority

      I was completely shocked by what Jon Voit said. I had always thought he was a great actor and of more intelligence. but what he said unfortunately changed my opinion of him. he will always be a great actor that won't change but how I view him as a person will be different no doubt. It's always great to see a 96 year old woman slam Tucker Carlson she's something else.

      The amount of respect I have lost for your work after finding out you’re associated with the next for autism event is astronomical.

    95. Miguel Sanchez

      8:35 not illegal. but understandable

    96. Carrie Adcock

      Is there an episode where he talks about the Capitol Hill riot?

    97. Cody McCollum

      The Biden presidency hasn’t been smooth so far I know it’s only 4 months in, but he called trump a dictator and said only a dictator ruled by executive order, and then immediately signed the most executive orders in US history so I guess he is the dictator and it was actually a warning and one of them over turned trumps insulin and epiPen plan so now insulin went from $60 to $600 and no one can afford it anymore. I’ve seen countless videos of people crying saying they can’t treat their diabetes anymore so thanks for that.

      1. Kit Parsons

        Idk why I need to tell you this but 1. Biden signed those executive order to reverse the horrific damage of the Trump administration, he had no choice on that front. 2. The president doesn’t set or control the price of Insulin and anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to leverage you for political support.

    98. Cullen Boardman

      Well the proof is here, 4 months later, the Republican party is and has been the nazi party in a clown costume.

    99. Zirk Kriz

      I am 100% sure, that actor is being held by gun point and is reading off of cue cards.

    100. Faical Rayani

      I'm glad Biden won but it's very strange that voter fraud was a huge issue right up until this election.. from what I remember there was no ensure voting in the US was secure because there was no investment in voting machines and each state can collect votes however it likes
