  • John Oliver is woke, hahaha. all this guy does is use communist language, using "phobes"

  • John you don't understand journalism only activism

  • GET OUT OF OUR COUNTRY YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE

  • This guy is so annoying that I could only handle 53 seconds of his blathering.

  • I love how specific and accurate John’s insults can get. If I may chime in with my own: He constantly makes the face of his mom checking his computer when he remembered he didn’t delete his history

  • He’s a Neo Confederate and the evidence is the national split he’s provoked.

  • Dear me.... its not just maternity fight suit but also body armor.... OMG, OMFG You know what preserve pregnant women better then this armor? Keeping them away from army and specially from flying warplanes I do admire service women and they tough and if strong enough to be soldiers sure why not but once they become pregnant.... IMHO they should not be in active service and as far from any danger and duty that req. an armor I dont care if this "initiative" started under Trump or anyone else its stupid

  • usually people with eye glasses are smart!!! there you go!!!

  • John is hilarious and eloquent as usual. Unfortunately resorting to personal jabs at Tucker hasn’t help me to get what his point is. Half of this episode is how whitely white the Tucker is and how he didn’t get to Harvard and therefore he is “… hi my name is racist” …

  • Cómo te paso un vídeo !contestame!

  • Cómo te paso un vídeo.

  • The fact that this looks to be your most disliked episode is very telling of this country's sanity.

  • You did an episode on Thud and I missed it until now?!

  • John, if you are going to attack Tucker's bow tie, fix your nose first.

  • John Oliver @johnoliver if you have disagreement with Tucker invite him on your show. Be a man, confront him with the sharpness of your wit (if you have any).

    • @E M unlike Tucker

    • Observe the generic loser spudpeen and his attempts at reducing a criticism of a man to a competition of who can dominate spectacle discussion harder.

    • This guy is just a propagandist spewing shit for a quick buck.

  • No one will ever remember your name Mr wannabe

  • People like Tucker is the only real argument for abortion

  • When racists think you’re racist, you’re racist.

  • Definition: "Cucker": the person who causes someone to become embarrassed through the act of having sex with his wife. Superrich Tarlson is messing with all of us.

  • Uh, anyone want to tell John about the Tucker segment on Dave Rubin’s show?

  • I don’t even consider myself in a political party and I can easily see that anytime this dude is on TV, he loves to talk out his ass.

  • My brain hurts listening to tucker Carlson trying to explain his sensitive capabilities.

    • Literally he is a physical representation of white supremacy, privilege, gender.

  • Love it when some limey tells us Americans how to live etc..

    • John Oliver is an American, dough-boy.

  • On CNN a major news network Tucker: "just between you and me, what's your favorite pepsi" Brittney: "Pepsi is Pepsi..." What in the f\ck? Lmao. Dudes always been a moron

  • This is a great video of Tucker, I love him even more, thanks! I have almost forgotten about James Allsup! Thanks again for the remind, now I found him on Telegram and Gab. :)

  • Tucker now in times 100 thanks to democratic party and affiliated news

  • John, I liked your previous videos where you talked about real problems, like the Bail bonds, the healthcare and other topics. Seems as if Democrat money got to you too and you are now in their desired narrative. Pitty.

    • Fascist populists indoctrinating the American public and undermining American values and the tenements of the American civilization is a real problem.

  • oooh scaaary

  • John Oliver, keep drinking your own Kool-Aid.

  • "Why aren't I as popular as Tucker Carlson? Don't they know I'm funny??"

    • Oliver is more popular than Carlson.

  • Racism doesn't exist we r all part of the human race, we are from different tribes so it'd b tribeism

  • Why is john oliver so against a white identity? hasnt he got a mirror?

    • @Thibault Loughrey Oh shit, I just got called out... my core personality trait is: WHITE. My favourite hobby is BEING WHITE. Everything I own? WHITE.

    • Imagine "being white" forming a substantial part of yiur identity that you actually focus on it in any degree. Just sad

  • I love Last Week Tonight. But I can't watch this. It only pisses me off and there's absolutely nothing anyone watching this can do about Tucker Carlson.

  • 🤦‍♂️🤮

  • The lowly bibliography paradoxically moor because cheetah relatively stroke vice a adamant fur. placid, electric submarine

  • John Oliver is pure propaganda, without even a thread of truth.

    • ?? what’s wrong about what he said? he pulled up sources and clips of tucker saying everything. pls 😭

  • Who else is here cause they saw Nicki Minaj actually agreeing with this man?

  • I can’t believe I used to listen to this man. Half his comments are all ad hominem attacks. 🙃

  • Is Tucker Carlson so vain or insecure that he wears a wig? If not, he needs to change his barber because his style looks so fake.

  • Someone's butthurt.

  • All the funny-by-proxy this dude had from prior association with John Stewart has since rubbed off. Completely all the way off.

    • What's that? You wanna rub off John Stewart?

  • Sounds like a bitter little man whining, why am I not as popular as Tucker cry cry

    • Oliver is more popular than Tucker. I think he makes more too.

  • What awoke pos. This is why we have a Potato behind the Resolute Desk. The commentator is a complete moron.

  • when the far left stops making tuckers job so easy his ratings will drop ,

    • @E M Well, you have to realize that when I look into ... pretty much any policy topic, the theories around it, and real world evidence of different approach's effectiveness, it somehow nearly always turns out that the correct answer is something that in America either aligns with the mainstream left... or even more left than that. So what is the "far left?" Well, what is the far right? To me, the far right consists of things like political conspiracy cults, fascism, anti-science, religious extremism, kleptocratic corporatism, you know, stuff like that. So what's that supposed to be on the left? Sure there are some conspiracy quacks, but... they're pretty minor compared to the major right wing ones. What, "communist" dictatorships? Those are basically just fascists with a different coat of paint, so they're really right-wing anyway. Anti-science? I mean, that's kind of like the conspiracy cult thing. There are some, but they're significantly less prominent than on the right. Religious extremism? Uh... which religious extremist group is left-wing? Cause I don't know of any, the two predominant religious extremist groups I know are Christian and Islamic... and not only are they both right-wing, but... I hate to tell you this, but... Christianity and Islam are pretty similar religions too. Kleptocratic corporatism? Well, there are some corporate tools in leftist politics, sure, but... it's kind of hard to argue that's the issue when essentially any measure that even seeks to improve wealth equality comes from the left, while the right just keeps transferring all of America's wealth to the rich. So where is this substantial "far left" group in America? Are you talking about communism itself, not in the fascist dictatorship sense, but just the basic ideals? I mean, communism as a way of organizing society is clearly a valid solution. I'd agree if you said it wasn't the right solution for right now. It's 100% not. That said, we, as a species, are facing a dire problem in our nearish future. Improving technology throughout history has made human labour redundant. We used to almost all produce food. People grew their own fiber crops, processed them at home, and made their own clothes too. Cities existed, but were relatively small, as almost everyone needed to produce food... and any increases in food yield didn't really change this much, since these advances lead to more food which lead to larger populations. It's only with the rise of industry proper that any significant portion of the population could really move away from agriculture, and this gave the true rise to cities, but improvements in industry, and later, shipping, made industrial labour redundant... fewer people could produce more than enough industrial goods to meet the demand of the population, and then those people could be on the other side of the planet. This gave rise to service economies, like we tend to have now in developed nations... but we're facing an issue. Improving technology is diminishing the need for service labour as well. We can already automate most trivial labour. Continued advanced in automation, computers, and AI are threatening to do the same thing to service jobs as technology in the past did to industrial jobs, and agricultural jobs before that. Where will people go after that? What new form of employment will humans come to fill? Maybe we'll find a solution, but... it looks to me like the answer is none. There is no solution. There are no further jobs for humans to move to. We are marching towards the death of labour. At some point we're going to have to answer the problem of "what do we do with all these people in our societies as demand for their labour supply shrinks and shrinks?" I see three real solutions: 1. We transition to a communist society where all humans are simply provided for, our technology and some small portion of humans labouring away sufficient to supply everything everyone needs. 2. We transition to a dystopia where the elite with all the wealth live lives of luxury, while the rest of us die, or become property, with no rights or security. 3. Society crumbles completely. Complex human civilization collapses. So, clearly communism is the best available future for humanity post-labour. It's hard to call a good solution for a problem we face in the relatively near future, but not quite yet, "far left."

    • @seigeengine What's far left to you? Maoists only? Lol.

    • There is no meaningful "far left" in America.

  • Cucker Tarlson

  • That man is putrid.

  • "We try to say what's true", what an insult to our collective intelligence.

  • Ahhhh yes, the grand idiot tool-bag John Oliver sounding off about people who actually know what the hell they're talking about. Great times! :)

  • Tell me what a white supremisist is. You Tucker! You Tucker!

  • How boring this video is... Wasn't that dude supposed to be funny? All I get here the same self righteous contemptuous "if you don't think like me you're a racist" BS that we hear everywhere... Is this guy working for Fox? It looks like he's making himself as unbearable as possible so as to drive people in the opposite camp.

  • Get a life little pommy

  • Tucker Swanson McNear Carlson... ...that's it

  • I may be the only one that has never watched Tucker Carlson and I am glad because just looking at him makes me sick. He is so obnoxious and hypocrite that I don't have the words to describe him. I don't know who is worse, him or Trump. It is hard for me to understand how people like to watch Fox News, as they are always misleading and dishonest with people.

    • Fox does the generic fascist thing where they give dissatisfied people easy answers and tell them who to be angry at (immigrants are a fave of theres).

  • When talking to someone who he disagrees with, Tucker Carlson gets this facial expression that is a mixture of concern, confusion, astonishment all while still looking somewhat blank. Someone I know called it the Tucker Face; It's something that once seen can never be unseen.

  • If you watched this for the full length to see whether you hate Tucker then you already hated Tucker.

  • You are a lying sellout… lying about Covid, vaccines, pretty much everything

  • Tucker: “Men and women don’t exist anymore.” John Oliver: “He’s so mean!!!! But I’m not saying anything on gender because I’m a pathetic tool. He’s a white supremacist!!!” You need a new writer buddy.

    • Why is the right so insecure about gender identity?

  • "Why give him the attention he's so clearly trolling for" ...project much?

    • damn this post is doin numbers

  • Did his mom drink when she was pregnant??

  • This would also be a wonderful argument for free speech. You hate and completely disagree with him - but would hopefully if not die for at least tolerate him saying what he wants.

  • As a wealthy man you clearly understand the ideas are about perpetuating the wealthy - which mostly are white. Most people shit on the poor because that's just what you would want to do with the current incentive structure. Yes sure racists watch him, and you can make it a race issue. But there are probably more poor white than minority people who suffer. Its about money. They would shit on you if you were white too.

    • I mean, it's not just about the wealthy. It's full-blown populist fascism on behalf of the kleptocratic elite. It's not really about anything except giving the "us" a "them."

  • I love Tucker He is the only one who has the guts to give Americans the TRUTH!

  • This program has seriously devolved into 30 minutes of "who are we supposed to hate this week".

  • Mr. Oliver you sir are the denominator this world need to the numerators of 🐄💩 to nullify the divisive messages pushed in this world. Thank you. I am not a super far leftist nor a far right kind of person. I’m on team people of any race, creed, religion, sexual orientation or sexual identification get a fair shake in this world and nation, kind of person. Clearly a product of public education, based on my punctuation 😂. But none the less, all humans are equal, and all opportunities should be as well.

  • I am definitely no fan of Carlson nor fox but calling him a white supremacist because some watch his show is a big stretch. There'd be plenty of things black republicans have in common with the KKK and both would vote republican but they're still not the same team entirely.

    • @seigeengine no no, u need to explain. It is more cowardly to throw insults, especially when unfounded, over the internet and not even explaining.

    • @Mr. Deano Pretty sure the rest of my comment explained that.

    • @Adrian Xhokli that's a bigot, not a racist. And these rich right wingers will sat whatever their followers want.

    • @seigeengine a coward? Really... in what way?

    • Imagine if you weren't a coward who strawmanned Oliver's point.

  • Whats wrong with white people being the dominant race? Theres always gonna be a dominant race depending on where you are. In africa its blacks, in asia ,its asians, in europe its whites, in mexico its mexicans, why is whites being the dominant race in america such a problem? Noones sayin India should be more inclusive, why is it just this country?

    • @seigeengine no, they weren't. They were considered "reverse negroes" and were treated like 2nd class citizens. There was no distinction in their discrimination than with many of the black community, with signs saying "Irish need not apply". Again, "white" doesn't mean literally white. It's a political category and construct. It's how and why Nazis do not consider jews and gypsies "white"

    • @Thibault Loughrey That's incorrect. Irish people were absolutely considered white. They were discriminated against, sure, but they were still white. There was a lot of ethnic conflict in the early USA as large groups of recent immigrants with different ethnic backgrounds in a time with limited national cultural cohesion due to inadequate technology, but this intra-white conflict did not mean the minority or less privileged groups among them weren't white.

    • What's wrong with white people not being the dominant race? Also, the meaning of "white" shifts over time. Im the 1800s, Irish people were not considered white in America

    • @Adrian Xhokli No it isn't. Hispanic isn't a race either. The Spanish are white. Incans are native American, which are Asian.

    • @seigeengine while yes, mexican isnt a race, it is treated as such socially, plus the large majority of mexicans are hispanic, i honestly don't know where you got asia from, most of mexican heritage is from the incans and the spanish.

  • Turns put thw election was rigged tho? This didnt age well oliver

    • Yeah, every election is rigged... by Republicans. They're kind of the scum of the Earth.

  • I'm white and I can happily coexist with any reasonable person, of any race. I'm not worried about anyone replacing me. Maybe Tucker has good reason to worry that immigrants will replace him. I imagine it's not that hard to produce mindless rants.

    • I mean, even if you are worried about someone replacing you... maybe realize that's not about race, but about other insecurities you have.

  • ALL of us are immigrants or have ancestors that were immigrants, except possibly for American Indian, though their ancestors cam from Asia a very long ago. Blacks whose ancesters were forced here probably have more right than those of us Fish belly whites whose ancestors came here from Europe fairly recently.

  • If "White Supremacist" was in the dictionary it could have a picture of Tucker Carlson.

  • Are you so threatened by Tucker that you have to do a whole expose on him?, fortunately Tucker is so busy with real journalism that he does not have time for such pettiness, their is a very good reason why the carlson show is No.1 in the U.S , its because unlike the total brainwashing propaganda of the likes of C.N.N etc... he is the only mainstream voice in america that speaks to those of us questioning this madness!, and I am an old school liberal who has seen through the divisiveness of party lines.

    • yeah, he has more important things to talk about on his show, like about how "cuckholding is when a humiliated man watches his wife have an affair". True journalism.

  • Calling Tucker or any other Conservative a white nationalist is hate speech!

  • So white supremacy means, basically, not believing in systemic racism. 🧐

  • Unless you yourself are "Native American" DO NOT ever talk badly about immigration, EVER you're ancestors are immigrants, you're insulting yourself.

    • @DryBones271 you seem very mature

    • @Thibault Loughrey Yeah ok troll GTFO

    • Try spelling and writing properly first and people might start to take you seriously

  • Tucker carlson probably doesn't know that there is American Citizens who live in other countries, there's a lot in Cancun 🇲🇽 a lot of Asia American and Indians when back to their roots (countries) of their family because they never felt welcome in 🇺🇸 BUT THIS AMERICANS still VOTED because they wanted change. They feel discriminate!

  • Why Tucker carlson cares about Britney drinking Pepsi? Is like if we ask how much PREPARATION H Tucker uses? One of his sponsors!

  • What is Wrong? With Fox News? They keep making 🇺🇸 look horrible again!

  • The “Byzantine” empire was European Christian and not Arabs

    • @seigeengine The Byzantines, especially the Ruling classes were near entirely Greek. The area that now constitutes Turkey for example was entirely Greek Christian. Oliver thought he was being clever by responding to a Tucker clip where he talked about Arabs (Iraqis) not using toilet paper or forks. Which is true in much of Arabia, and Oliver immediately brings up this “Byzantine/Middle East Empire” without kindly referring the fact that was a Greek Christian led empire and not an Arab one. He probably also has to say that because his average viewer is so ignorant they likely wouldn’t know the Byzantines had holdings in the Middle East or even who the Byzantines were.

    • The byzantine empire was like half in the middle east, and Christianity emerged in the middle east in the first place. Why are you rambling about Arabs?

  • Another leftist following his leftist friends

  • Tucker Carlson for President 2024.

  • If he needs to know what a white supremacist is someone should hold up a mirror up to his face.

  • People should be held more accountable for their words and false comments. Especially having a platform that others consider news; should be a chargeable offense. It’s not news. It’s suppose to be entertainment. I guess division and inciting anger is fun for Tucker and Fox. Actively trying to ruin our country is their entertainment. Horrible trolls

  • Tucker Carlson…. What even is that ?

  • Tucker and people like him give good white people a bad look

  • I've always enjoyed your schtick - your approach to comedy and commentary. But the fact that you are too afraid or too partisan to hold power to account. You seem to believe one half of the power structure in the US is above reproach. As if they too aren't power craven humanoids. It's mind=numbing, and it's a root cause of our current media credibility.

    • No, you're just buying into and repeating the faulty premise of equivalence. The reality is that America only has one side worth a damn, and sure, that side isn't perfect, but the reality is also that the media criticizes that side too. And if you want that side to be even better, you need real competition, not fascists and kleptocrat traitors.

    • I once entered your state of mind... Later in the future you will find out that it is all intentional, that his job is to promote this type of propaganda, regardless of how much truth is actually in it.

  • meh.... got bored of this video 30 seconds in... spent the next 30 minutes loving Tucker Carlsons video ha ha!

  • John Oliver sucks and we all know it

  • They are scared...

  • John Oliver is an establishment tool. Why did he attack Jill Stein

  • I love Tucker

  • ... why are you lying...

  • This is incredibly unfunny.

  • Once England gave America Hitchens, and a vision of the intelligent left. I can only say sorry that we sent this character, but on a us point you can find Hitch and his brother all over SLflow

  • Hey Oliver I am a fascist and I love your show. Boom you are a fascist. sounds right?

  • John should do an episode of Carlson's indian version Arnab Goswami

  • I'm not white, and I can see that John is twisting and omitting facts. why is that?

  • This channel definitely gets funded by corrupt media. Tucker actually talks about situations in our country, while ya just make up lies and destroy a person's image that ya know has more attention than the corrupt media. And for the record how is a British guy commentating on a country that he not apart of.

    • ...John Oliver lives in America you melon...
