John Oliver does his own fact-checking of Donald Trump

John Oliver’s whole show last weekend was devoted to Donald Trump.

It’s 22 minutes long. It has some rude words. It’s completely hilarious. And it will score better with the fact-checkers than any 22-minute tirade by Trump himself, or should I say “Drumpf?”

    Unfortunately the folks that are attracted to the Donald don’t watch programs like the John Oliver show.

    I watched the whole thing, have no disagreement with any of it and if asked to pick between: Rubio, Cruz and Trump?


    Poor John Kasich, the only adult in the room, and the GOP children have no interest. Rubio and Cruz are simply unelectable due to their inabilities to capture enough middle of the road voters and Trump could win or he could say enough collective stupid things to alienate enough voting groups to fail miserably.

    Let’s practice all together now: “Madame President”.

    You are trying to reason with a swath of the population that has long-ago decided that the “liberal media” consists entirely of lies.

    Better to believe a salesman like Trump. He’d never steer you wrong. He knows all the answers to your problems.

    This derision is the way to get “The Drumpf” to lose it–in both sense of the term. Pointing out that there is no THERE there! Thanks for linking this Oliver segment, Eric!

    Oliver’s check on Drumpf

    Certainly challenges how educated this country actually is now

    Fact checking with humor

    John Oliver debunked many of reasons people say they are supporting Trump with facts.
    It was beautiful to behold.
