Are we all going to ignore that Monica fuckmothering Lewinksi compared herself to a Transformer at 19:30 That's literally one of the most 90's things to ever happen and it happened in 2019

I felt sorry for her from Day One. Their affair should not have been used for political humiliation. Just another example of the GOP's inherent evil.

Even Beyoncé uses Monica Lewinsky’s name in Partition as a euphemism for c*m. I always thought that was in poor taste, especially coming from another woman.

John Oliver is a god among late night show hosts
John Oliver seems to buy into the notion that Monica Lewinsky was the victim of a public shaming, and that shaming was for her act of fellatio. I don't remember it that way. I didn't despise her for that; I didn't think of her as a tart, a slut, or anything so coarse as that. What I thought was, What a weak-kneed, thoughtless silly person. She doesn't have the sense to be cool when confronted by a bunch of bullies in suits, and she agrees to talk freely to them when all she needed to do was call a lawyer. She was guilty of no crime. She wanted to have sex with the president. She should own that and she should have protected him and her own reputation, which were the same thing. It was HER lack of guts and weakness of character that caused her all this grief, not Clinton. He was just defending himself.

John Oliver is so full of shit. watched only for 5 min on cable and literally everything this dude said was a lie, this dude is a joke. It's like CNN gives him what they say and he just repeats it while laughing....

When I lived thru all that in the 90s, I didn’t have adolescent daughters, as Monica was then. I did despise Bill Clinton for the sleazebag that he was. But I also did laugh at all the Monica jokes. I am ashamed of that now.

I can't understand how selective John Oliver is on this show. He singles out Fox News ONLY. He acts like NBC and CNN are bastions of truth and don't lie or misinform on a daily basis. He attacks Tucker Carlson because he's a conservative. He attacks Jay Leno because he's a conservative. If Stephen Colbert made fun of Lewinsky and didn't apologize, he wouldn't have even brought it up

I love your show, the only problem with that is this. If you watch your show consistently, you begin to feel as though there are way too many pressing problems to ever address. I'm just one person, I can't take on all of this. I would love to take on all of it if I could, but I just can't. I can't even remember it all. But it's all worth remembering. I am grateful that somebody like you takes the time to make videos like this, I'm glad that a larger corporation is willing to sponsor it, produce it, and air it. But if I watch it consistently, I end up feeling as though the situation in my country is almost beyond hope. Intellectually I know that's not true, but emotionally that is the way I come to feel. I cannot see the progress I can only see the problems, and some of these problems require much more time and effort than I can spare to address. It leaves me feeling adrift.

that woman is fine as an aunt but a piece of shit of a person, exploiting a loophole for personal gain because you can't stop yourself from fucking yourself up Fuck Lewinsky btw, she shouldn't have sucked that dick all other things aside that dude was married. So she got backlash for it, tough shit sometimes your actions have negative reactions.

It's weird that people cheer for Lewinsky's come-back like it's a way of exercising justice. She sucked another woman's husband dick and ruined a marriage which cannot be the same for lifetime. Who is going to cheer for that couple still holding up together, especially that wife? Not that you should condemn Lewinsky but definitely not cheer for her.
I've been outraged at things that need to be outraged about, such as education problems, where a school teacher can get away with sexual assault and still keep his job, or our justice system, where a judge can act like a 3 year old, beat up an lawyer, and still keep his job! But things like some guy goes 'black faced' when they were actually wearing a anime mask of the main guy for Tokyo Ghoul, or girls wears Asian inspired dress sparks 'cultural appropriation' debates. I just face palm at, people are weak skinned in this day and age and fear every little thing that breaths wrong at them.

I love John's comment, "Every 22 year old is some form of an idiot." That is a classic! I know I certainly did a lot of dumb stuff before, during, and after that age. Yet I was able to walk away rather unscathed. It really makes me stop and think of how lucky I was and how unlucky she was. Monica is an amazing person and this interview was the best! Thank you Alvin Oliver!

I love John Oliver. He is the most brilliant person. He is one of very few who actually understands nuance and delves deep into fine lines instead of making things black and white like most of everyone is doing these days. His comic reporting is everything. Thanks John Oliver! If I was a rapper I'd definitely name you in my rhymes.

Swi vel

+Debra Nelson possibly, but aren't they public because he made (some of them, at least) public. I've not heard of many of his targets. I get it though. I like him and I'm a liberal in my native temperament, but being objective, he really can't gripe about public shaming any more than trump can try to complain about "presidential harassment"--it's just an intellectual honesty point I'm making--I'm not throwing out the baby with the bathwater.

The ironic thing about Jay Leno is that he was the biggest kiss ass to anybody that came on his show. Had Monica Lewinski been there he would have been all over her saying how great she was, how amazing she was, how brave she was to put up with all of it. His entire schtick for the time he was there was making lame Dad jokes for the blue rinse crowd.

Good show but you completely tainted it by disregarding the fact that Tucker Carlson's entire family was targeted not just him. Redesign the message as public shaming is bad for the left but f*** conservatives. You're a shity moral arbiter.

To be fair, i do think America has an outrage culture problem and public shaming is very prominent from these so-called "defenders". You can lose your job just because you voted for someone else. In my country, political allegiances should be kept private and it not important when hiring. You can be a conservative working in an office full of Open-minded people. Neither parties have the right to complain who works were as long as they don't cause friction (openly attacking someone for their beliefs)

Mob mentality has existed since the beginning of time. But only in the last few years has it become possible for the mob to grow so large that it includes a good chunk of the world's population. Once upon a time, twenty guys would get pissed and throw rocks at you for an hour. Now 20 million guys will call you a whore for 20 years with no end in sight and everyone you meet from now on will know what's going on and join in. It's... well, "not good" is possibly the understatement of the year.
