John Oliver Laments: Trump Victory Has Given Me "Wave After Wave Of Nausea All Week"


On HBO's "Last Week Tonight," John Oliver dedicated his entire season finale to discussing the result of the presidential election.

"A Klan-backed, misogynist Internet troll is going to be delivering the next State of the Union address," he said about President-Elect Trump. "Keep reminding yourself, 'This is not normal."

The host, famous for noting the current year, capped off the episode with an extended montage about how terrible 2016 has been.


Back in 2015 when he was guest-hosting 'The Daily Show,' Oliver begged Donald Trump to run because he thought it would be funny:

"Do it. Do it. Look at me. Do it. I will personally write you a campaign check right now, on behalf of this country, which doesn't want you to be president, but desperately wants you to run," he said.


Later in the campaign, he begged Trump to drop out:

“Drop out and tell America this entire thing was a stunt, a satire to expose the flaws in the system," he begged Trump.
