    Thanks, John Oliver. I spent my 30 seconds swearing at you. Not because it's your fault all this is happening, but because it's cathartic to be angry at someone instead of ineffable events.

    As of April 3, 2020, the USA has reported 275,048 total cases of COVID-19, with 7,067 deaths (these numbers are somewhat reliable, as testing is still mostly unavailable, and reporting may not be accurate). Current estimates offer a range of deaths from 100,000 to 200,00. This is not going to get better any time soon.

    From an international perspective, the so called leaders of the free world tried to buy exclusive rights to a possible vaccine and are stealing resources acquired by other nations while China are sending us staff and resources. The world is taking note, this pandemic is the end of the American empire over the world. We just hope you don’t do something stupid with your nuclear weapons before hitting rock bottom.

      "The buck doesn't stop with me, it's not my fault." I paraphrased, obviously, but I wanted to cut through the crap, that's basically what Trump's saying. And John's signing off wa

    Ebola is 50 times as deadly and 5 times as infectious, MERS is 35 times as deadly and 6 times as infectious, Tuberculosis is 15 times as deadly and 4 times as infectious, SARS-1 is 10 times as deadly and 4 times as infectious. The only reason we have lockdown is not because SARS-2 is dangerous, it's because china lied and we could stop them from bringing it west. Our system is built for prevention not containment.

  • uninvincibleete

    Watching this two weeks after the fact (when it becomes available in other countries) is so eerie. It's like the part in a video game where you find a recording of media/scientists warning of impending doom in a destroyed, abandoned town.

    Trumps "not responsible" answer is so terrible. That kind of stuff (together with the myriad of other bullshit) should really cost him a possible re-election. Loved the Liverpool bit!

    My 30s is me complaining that the treatment for a pinched nerve in my neck that's crippling my arm and hand leaving me in intense pain, making it hard for me to sleep leaving me chronically exhausted and interfering with my ability to work has been postponed indefinitely. I could end up permanently disabled if I have to wait too long. But yeah, your sports team has to cancel. #Firstworldproblems

    Hold up a minute, while I clear the air for Rudy Gobert. BEFORE the presser (which was done more than 2 days before Rudy's test results), all players were told not to touch the microphones because the media could spread Covid-19 to the players. What Rudy did, by touching the microphones, wasn't an act of defiance but a show of trust and solidarity with the media. After Trump's multiple attacks on journalists DURING Covid-19 pressers, it was a breath of fresh air for a celebrity to stand up for and actually respect journalists, something I'd like to think a comedian could appreciate.

    Interesting how the lack of an audience that's been cued to laugh at his dialogue highlights John Oliver's startling mediocrity. Time for John to retire and permanently self-isolate.

    It's unfortunate that people congregate around certain ideas and live in bubbles. Of course, I never heard about cure-all toothpaste, so it can be said that I live in a bubble, too.
