John Oliver On Putin's Russian And 'Moral Equivalence' With The US
21 February, 2017, 01:01 | Author: Sam Montgomery
Last week, "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" spent most of its energy focusing on the nature of truth - it was a little bit of an abstract concept, but there was a great deal to discuss there when it comes to everything from "alternative facts" to the spread of inaccurate media. To which Trump now famously responded, "You think our country's so innocent?"
As Oliver explains, Putin's track record on human rights violations is extensive.

That's not exactly the step toward world peace you're probably hoping for. Oliver then vowed to stick up for America since Trump won't: "America and Russian Federation are not the f*cking same".
"Don't get me wrong: America has had, and continues to have, endemic problems that need fixing; that might as well be the title of this show", Oliver continued. Them, good vs. evil Cold War propaganda promotion. Instead, John Oliver broke down why he thinks Putin is such a risky figure and why considering the US and Russian Federation morally equivalent is harmful.
To drive home the point, Oliver wrapped up the segment with a warning for Trump in "the catchiest possible form: shitty techno music".
