John Oliver Rips Trump’s Coal Plan [VIDEO]

On Last week tonight with John Oliver he dedicated his main story to Trump’s empty promises to coal miners, with the comedian citing the New York City real-estate mogul’s ability to connect with the coal-mining community as “a key reason that we have this cautionary Bible story in the White House.”

“But the point here is: Trump needs to stop lying to coal miners. We all do,” he continued. “Stop telling them that their jobs are all coming back when they’re not. Stop telling them that coal is clean when it isn’t. And stop pretending that this isn’t an industry in the middle of a painful—albeit necessary—transition. An honest conversation about coal and its miners needs to be had, and we should neither cease nor desist from having it.”
