John Oliver: Vote Against Donald Trump [VIDEO]

By

In his final HBO show before Election Day, Oliver pleaded with his audience to vote Tuesday to not only prevent “the human equivalent of a clear plastic bag filled with cheeseburgers and Confederate flag belt buckles” from assuming the highest office in the land, but also to have a say in important down-ballot initiatives, from measures on the minimum wage, legalizing marijuana, and the death penalty. To prepare, you can Google “view my ballot,” type in your address, and see who or what is on the ballot in your area.
“The point is that there is a lot to consider on Tuesday and then, barring recounts, this nightmare of a campaign will be over—which is good, because this election hasn’t so much appealed to our better angels as it has groped our better angels, mocked their weight, and called them ‘6s at best,’” said Oliver. “We are at a point where this man [Trump] has a genuine shot at the presidency despite having blown up a political party, undermined confidence in our electoral system, declared open season on journalists, and unleashed a river of racism and misogyny. Also, and I feel like we’ve lost sight of this: He has really stupid hair.”
