hi John, how much do you feel like you predicted the election...
I don't know. When I was in prison, Whitesnake was terrifying. A Gay Priest kept trying to murder me with White Snake.
Josh VanArman
don't you mean Bowie and not Queen? or am I wrong?
under pressure?

The only reason Guantanamo remain open is because if a prisoner is in U.S. soil, by law the prisoner has the right to go through the U.S. judicial system to face their accusers. Guantanamo isn't U.S. soil, via paying rent to Cuba, that is how the Politicians and Military circumvent the U.S. laws Court procedures.

We should put Dick Cheney in guantanamo for good and see how he likes it.

Is it even possible for Cuba to cash one of those more recent checks? Do the older ones have expiration dates like regular checks?
Mrs Unknown
I would have no problem with "Here I go again" either but I much prefer Judas Priest and Metallica. However, I doubt long-term exposure to too loud music would be beneficial to my ears. Jokes aside, it is atrocious that they're handling and kind of person as a number, not as an individual. This applies to war too.
Isn't it the watch you've given to Dalai Lama...? XD
M HarshanthRam
holy cow , I own that watch
David Beynon
First of his videos that didn't make me laugh. Too much of a sad topic. America you speak to us about freedom, justice. democracy. Why do you fail your own ideals? And why are you often blind for ur flaws?

Halo Toto
Americans are more than ok with this.
Sniffling coward of a nation.

It isn't constitutional, it isn't right, and it isn't accomplishing anything. 7 million a year might be a reasonable cost for holding Magneto on the Xmen, but it's inane to spend it on people we can't try.

The right thing to do is obvious. Charge the ones we have a case against, and release the rest. We could let them out the gate into Cuba to say thanks for the Marielitos. ;)

It's a good thing for John Oliver that no one in the Trump Administration will ever watch this video
Petty Boo
Who the fuck cares what Putin says he keeps the u.s.a name in his mouth because this country is the best country in the world. It's easy for people to want to take the moral high ground and think they know what's best. Is it better to keep them in there instead of risking even MORE American lives?? Or just let them go because people want to be nice and politically correct. Fuck that. Freedom really isint free. Most of u cucks and punk bitches whine about bullshit that goes in in this country yet never criticize the true enemy, radical Islam. I can't stand when people want all the benefits of being an American and living here, but don't want to accept the work that goes into it.. smh
Crazy Horse
I love the show, but I think John needs to allow for people to laugh or react more than he does.
The Downshift
