As a nation, Oliver said, “We are faced with the same questions as a guy that woke up the day after a Vegas bachelor party deep in the desert, naked, tied to a cactus and a dead clown — namely, ‘How the fuck did we get here and what the fuck do we do now?”
He went on to marvel at exactly what’s happened to the U.S., saying, “A Klan-backed, misogynist internet troll is going to be giving the next State of the Union address.”
To figure out what happened, exactly, he said, “We’re going to be examining this for years, but tonight, let’s just focus on one narrow element that may have helped bring us here, because it will be important going forward. That is our media, specifically how a system that is supposed to catch a serial liar failed.”
I found this very cathartic.
I think we are really going to need John Oliver and Samantha Bee to help us get through these next four years with our sanity intact.
Fortunately I think they are up to the task.
