Yesterday’s tragic news out of Orlando — the worst mass shooting on US soil ever, and the 133rd in 2016 alone — left us all with a lot to process. By virtue of show Last Week Tonight airing on Sundays, John Oliver was the first of the late-night hosts to attempt to make sense of yet another senseless act of violence. He did an admirable job.
Dubbing the gunman a “terrorist dipshit,” Oliver delivered a short monologue with the exact amount of sadness, anger and exasperation you’d expect of someone who’s had to address these types of attacks too many times in the past few months. It’s a small consolation in light of such a despicable atrocity, but it’s absolutely worth a watch.
