John Oliver Hopes To ‘Educate’ Trump With the Right Ads On TV

John Oliver is back with HBO’s Last Week Tonight. And the topic for Sunday’s show? US President Donald Trump, of course.

On Sunday’s show, Oliver lashed out at the POTUS, and called him a “pathological liar”.

After slamming Trump’s tendency to distort facts, the comedian and social commentator also put forward an innovative solution to sneak corrections into the President’s media diet.

His solution: buying advertisements on Donald Trump’s favourite news outlets, . The advertisements, which will run between 8:30 and 9 am in the DC area on MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News, will talk about the nuclear triad and the unemployment rate, among other things, Oliver said.

The episode concluded with a cowboy talking about war crimes, the constituents of the nuclear triad and the fact that not all black people live in the inner cities.
