Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

US-transplanted UK comedian & international sex symbol John Oliver continues to highlight some of the complexities of issues in the USA in a way that provokes a fair bit of gawping & forehead-slapping (“HOW DID IT EVER COME TO THIS?!”) in his consistently hilarious and thought-needling way.  I have no idea how he summons the fortitude to keep doing this show, but am genuinely glad he does.  👍👍
