John Oliver Nails It July 10, 2020July 9, 2020 One minute of Republican advice to voters. I hate the “ominous voice over” ads like this always use — “cue the ominous voice over.” But you know what? This ad is true. If you had been smart enough to pay someone to take your SATs, wouldn’t that have attested to your character, intelligence, and work ethic? Same with paying a doctor to get you out of military service. Or stiffing contractors. Or not paying taxes. Or obstructing justice. Or firing anyone investigating you. Smart, smart, smart, smart, smart, smart. “When you’re a celebrity, you can get away with anything.” John Oliver on Confederate statues. More than 20 million people have seen this since it first aired nearly three years ago, but I hadn’t. So, so good. Have a great weekend.
