Sunday night marked the return of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Since this was the first show since Donald Trump won the election, Oliver and his writing staff had a lot of stuff to catch up on. The topic of the evening was Trump's seeming inability to tell facts from fiction.
John Oliver was aiming to be able to provide answers to four basic questions: "How did we get a pathological liar in the White House; where are his lies coming from; why do so many people believe him; and what we can possibly do about it?"
The answers, in short, are:
1. Everyone was too used to Donald Trump's lies to really take him seriously;
2. Cable news, Breitbart, and Infowars;
3. Because they're getting their news from the same media outlets; and
4. Pay attention, verify facts before passing them on, and run these John Oliver-made commercials about facts on morning cable news shows.
Haha, just kidding. Hang in there, folks, only four more years to go.
