well whoever living in US who didn't know that Donald Trump's image has been fake as fuck for the whole time must have been pretty ignorant then. I've only been here for 6 or 7 years or so and I knew that guy is freaking insane.

It's progressives masturbating progressives. Not a single person who is considering voting for Trump is going to watch that and if they do they aren't going to be swayed.

This makes zero sense, and then paired with the second half of that post it makes even less sense.

Inversely no liberals watch Fox news which is probably claiming that US will be socially and morally corrupt if Hilary or Bernie will be elected.

Yes, this is quite true as well. Except for the laughs. I remember watching Fox when it was becoming evident Obama was going to beat Romney, it was fucking hilarious.

I think you're missing the point. Of course Trump voters aren't going to watch that, they are Trump voters. They have to live in an information bubble in order to remain a Trump voter. They are the ones that will mock you for asking for a source.

Oh I see what you mean. We're in total agreeance. I'm just saying I don't get the endless praise every single time John Oliver so much as lifts a finger. I think Colbert's style of taking down right-wingers is/was much funnier and more effective.

There's no correlation. At one point you're attacking someone based on their audience. And then you go on an attack based on speculation that he has a team of writers, as if that's new for a tv host?

Oh, I still see much more paradise for Colbert or Stewart, but hey everyone has to bring their own style.

I guess Australia is a different place. where hosts actually write all of their materials.

I think this is only true when Oliver chooses a popular topic like Trump. But where he really excel is in finding relatively obscure topics or issues that are ignored by the media, but which are hugely important. Like net neutrality or tax-exempt churches.

Yes, this is very, very true. He's been ahead of the curve on a few topics, I stand corrected.

It just annoys me that John Oliver gets all the praise when he likely doesn't do all the research/writing?

But you don't believe this is a rare thing do you?

No. But trust you to nitpick the most pointless part of my post
