John Oliver thinks Queen Elizabeth II is in hell watching Princess Diana

When we last heard from John Oliver, the British comedian (who has US citizenship) stopped by Seth Meyers to poke fun at the UK’s “10 Days of Enforced Mourning” for the late monarch Queen Elizabeth II, something that had also done in his Emmy-winning HBO series last week tonightwith some digs at King Charles III and Prime Minister Liz Truss for good measure.

After a week off, Oliver returned to last week tonight desk on Sunday and began with some criticism of Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine for his embarrassing but overblown sex-texting scandal, saying, “We also learned that Adam Levine is just as bad at sexting as he is at creating meaningful tattoos. ”

Oliver saved more anger for President Joe Biden over his recent declaration that the COVID-19 pandemic is “over.”

“Which is not just irresponsible, it’s complete bullshit,” Oliver exclaimed. “You can’t just declare something and make it happen. If I said, ‘The queen is alive’, that doesn’t mean it’s true. We all know that right now he is in the afterlife looking at Diana.”

Oliver then turned things around to the Governor of Florida. Ron DeSantis, a hateful and opportunistic man who recently sent two planes full of around 50 immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, using defenseless people, including several young children, as political pawns ahead of the midterm elections.

“If this sounds like a stunt done for Fox News, you’re absolutely right. But it may also have been done by Fox News,” Oliver explained. “Because just two months ago, Tucker Carlson did a segment highlighting the whiteness of Martha’s Vineyard, and he had this funny pitch.”

He then moved on to a segment where Carlson said about Martha’s Vineyard on his Fox News show, “They’re begging for more diversity. Why not send immigrants there, in large numbers? Let’s start with 300,000 and go from there.”

“It sounds like DeSantis just took that idea and went with it. So I guess it’s true what they say: good artists borrow, great artists steal, and racist governors get their ideas yelled at by the human equivalent of the boat shoe found at the scene of a hazing death,” Oliver joked. .

Oliver continued: “This stunt was grim and deeply cynical, especially given that immigrants were reportedly lured there with empty promises of jobs and housing, and were even handed brochures listing government assistance they were ineligible for. ”.

And, as Oliver pointed out, the fake fliers DeSantis’ team crafted and fooled migrants with even included a “fake” Massachusetts state flag that a random person had made online because “the current one blows “.

“Nothing says, ‘I’m against illegal immigration and human trafficking,’ like making fake documents to smuggle people across a border,” Oliver joked.
