Shocking. The country that for 70plus years has been tooting the freedom and democracy flag actually has it's own colonies! Disgusting. These colonies should be set free.
sejemandhaha
American Samoa is a colony

Solution: Give Puerto Rico and Washington D.C. statehood, while separating the federal government offices from D.C. into a new federal district with a plan of no permanent population. Also, make the US Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Marianas Islands the right to vote for the president, and they can eventually become states when they get a large enough population.

Actually this is good. No, even GREAT! Now I know where I can get soldiers for my plans in creating Militaires De Sans Frontiers. All of this people from from this islands states probably HATE! America so very much that you can persuade them into fighting for a better cause. And we wont worry about the shortage in arms. We can just take all of it in all of the US bases around those island states. We would be bigger than fucking ISIS! Fuck YEAH!

JK by the way....... Or am I? With Trump controlling the US, this might not be a very bad plan after all though.....
noah goldman
Was The Rock born in American Samoa!?
Henry Rodgers
10:30 Why does he always call it the "O-Bomber" administration?
Megan River
This is so interesting!
Dr. Banter
LOL... While his British nation is falling apart... he actually tries to destabilize USA allies... separatist retard is actually trying to manipulate us, while his OWN COUNTRY is in HELL LMAOOOO. KARMA IS A B1tch LMAOOOOOOOOOO
Will Hays
literally everyday at or after work I watch john Oliver. He is truly someone that is hilarious but you can also learn so much
Will Smith
This is so wrong!
Steven Hamburg
The worst offense is to American Somoa. Citizenship seems just. Also statehood for Puerto Rico long overdue.
Victoresball
Trump had one opened on Guam, so I guess he isn't bad at everything.
Sean Lann
I'm gonna guess it's Republicans that are blocking it
Phoenixx Trih
Somebody tell me WHY this program is not ahead of FOX, CNN, MSNBC in news reporting!!
Kerim Gueney
The sad fact is that people don't care because they're brown. Bunch of Americans don't even think that Hawaii is really American.
Joarthus
Was John Travolta tasked with announcing the delegate from US Samoa?
Joarthus
"I voted and wish it had actually counted" is the sticker they give to everyone who votes.
Zion Malaki
I'm western Samoan
Bashiir Mohamed
Joan Oliver amazing guy. I wish he could be president instead of trumph
Chris Robert
yeah!! We are Americans!
We deserve more equality
Hotrod 05
Not that I don't appreciate the criticism of "our" gov't or "our" president, but who do mean every time you say the word "WE"?
James Bruggeman
who is that guy singing at 11:33?
Dj Rasta
Hey!!
That thing about Colombia is offensive, we are not a jungle, we are a thriving narco-state
M Lopez
4;57 but john according to you...




ITS GUAM

The Wright Brothers DID NOT invent the plane. Americans invented comics and jazz, make peace with it.

God bless PR. Per capita, PR has sent the most soldiers to war, when combining all theaters of war; since WW1. It was an all PR infantry regiment ( 65th infantry ) that we're the first US forces to help evacuate the retreating USMC first division. The PR unit help back the Koreans, so that the Marines were able to board the ships without being flanked. That unit is also the most decorated unit of the Korean War. To this day, the South Koreans talk about the bravery, and fighting prowess of the PR infantry men. Highest decorated soldier in Vietnam, also from PR. This is not even including the state side born PR, like my bro who is a United States marine. We are the REAL fight culture of USA.
J Pauly
Turnout for what?!
Amiri the Grey
Like yeah wtf why is Hawaii a state but not Puerto Rico or Guam
Beyond the Beach The mountains
I noticed how puritanical you make your show out to be!! However I can see where you heart is on this, and it really is not there at all.
MANIAC Universe God

Victor Martinez
