John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight made a welcome return to HBO Sunday evening with a barn-burner of a piece on voting restrictions.
Oliver has said he doesn’t intend to cover the 2016 election per se, but I would consider pieces like this even more important. These are issues that get relegated to the back burner on newscasts which don’t have the time to delve as deeply into the subject.
As always, Sunday night’s piece was as well-researched, as funny, and as enraging as ever, ESPECIALLY the part where legislators who worry about a non-existent voter fraud problem themselves cheat at voting in their legislatures.
Welcome back, John Oliver.
