A bittersweet finale to the 2016 season of the John Oliver Show and obviously he felt the same way. The entire show, for anyone who might have missed it, was dedicated to saying farewell to a truly terrible year, which has been capped off, although not completely ended yet, by Mr Trump being elected as our President. As if the entire Presidential Race wasn’t terrible enough we actually ended up with this? If there’s one bright spot to all of that it is Oliver’s wonderful discourse summed up as, “What the hell happened and how do we work to fix it”.
Towards the end of the show Oliver pointed out a whole bunch of suggestions for organizations and Not For Profits that we should support, for Women’s Rights, Civil Liberties and First Amendment freedom of press. In particular Planned Parenthood, Center For Reproductive Rights, The Natural Resources Defense Council, The Mexican-American Legal Defense and Education Fund,The NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, and the Trevor Project
If you’re looking for a little more entertainment and lighthearted reading on the subject, then I managed to find a whole wiki entry on John Oliver Versus Trump, hopefully Oliver’s comedic take on Trump will only continue and this will grow.
