Election Day is drawing ever nearer, and Sunday night's episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver featured more election coverage, this time focusing on third party candidates. Because so many Americans dislike both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump so much, third party candidates like Gary Johnson and Jill Stein have become increasingly attractive, especially to young voters. Dismissing the idea that voting for a third party candidate simply siphons votes away from the two main candidates, Oliver goes about explaining why both Johnson and Stein are cuckoo bananas, too.
Stein, for example, has been pretty wishy-washy about her stance on the safety of vaccines (and she's a doctor, for God's sake) and might not not be a 9/11 Truther. Johnson, for his part, has no idea about the intricacies of the tax program he's proposing, no plan for addressing global warming, and may or may not have humped Mount Everest.
That said, it's important to remember to get out there and vote for the candidate that you hate the least, and here's hoping America will last another four years until the next election.
