John Oliver Showed a Rare Display of Emotion

Deplorable David Duke
John Oliver didn't cry like a bitch because it was his last show. He cried like a little bitch because Trump won.
Clem Fandango
jimmy you ahole just play the Emotional part lol ffs
Channel for Positivity l Understanding l Justice
As the years go by....
John Oliver's bangs go bye....
Scott Rooney
Holy shit, Jimmy's laugh is almost tolerable in this clip.
Dan Ford
im British and what he says about how emotion is treated here is 100% true
Nate Lybeer
I think his accent has diminished over the past few years.
Kanya Pinandita
i must say, john oliver is looking better these days.... what is this mid life puberty?
Max Rosenblum
it's always weird when one big hosts interviews a much better one
Mata Pendejos
Jon Oliver looks like he weeps and apologizes after sex what a wanker.
He cried like a bitch after Trump was elected too....and didn't even donate the money to Trump's campaign like he promised.
Iris Baul
seeing john oliver cry is so sad wtf
"Pre-1770 American" cracked me up.
John Oliver literally blew Jimmy Fallon out of the water on this interview... I mean holy shit! He is just a powerhouse of personality and comedy and almost made Jimmy look like an amateur during this interview. And at first, I was really pissed that the Daily Show let John Oliver go and then shortly after, John announced his resignation. But now, Last Week Tonight has become so good and the lack of restrictions that it has being on HBO has turned it into one of the best "news" shows I have ever watched. I mean seriously, John Oliver would have NEVER been able to do some of the stories he has done with the in depth approach that he is known for on the Daily Show. Last Week Tonight is just spectacular and the only complaint that I have against it at all is that it wasn't named "The Oliver Twist"
Why did he get so emotional?? Seriously, Jimmy?
John Oliver Showed a Rare Vulgar Display of Power
At the moment, late each night (or at least each weeknight), the American public can choose between watching Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, Conan O'Brien, Seth Meyers, James Corden and Trevor Noah, as well as weekly appearances by John Oliver with Saturday Night Live thrown in night. Most, if not all of them are firing out some of the best material of their careers (due in no small part to the wealth of material that is Donald Trump), and whilst their individual styles vary, I don't think there has been a time in late night history when Americans have been so spoilt for choice in the late night slots.
big orange fan
I totally agree with you I like him on HBO His show can do what they want and it's been awesome I hope for many more shows
somebody please teach Jimmy to speak in full sentence
My brain must be like 45% mirror neurons, because EVERY TIME, I see someone shed tears of joy, I get misty eyed...
I finally found the full clip (I couldn't seem to find it on YouTube) where john gets emotional. It's on the comedy central website. You can find it under "A John Oliver Retrospective"

It takes a lot to drive an Englishman to tears...
Andrew Huseby
That moment was special enough to be one of John Oliver's four hugs in his lifetime !
Seo Sem
Are you kidding me? HOW HAVING HUMAN EMOTIONS IS RARE? WTF?! WHY ARE YOU EMOTIONAL? Answer: Because I'm a nice decent human being not a ZOMBIE FAKE ASSHOLE!
Daniel Gonzalez

Jimmy is doing a good job. He lets the guest do the talking. He's likeable too.
Him, David Mitchel and Richard Ayeoade all went to uni together, that must have been a weird yet hilarious group
Tuna Fish

And since then, Last Week Tonight has been getting better and better and the Daily Show went to shit.

This person constantly makes fun of Donald Trump but at the same time invites him on the show and kisses his ass while worshipping the ground he walked on.
