John Oliver Talks About Alex Jones And Shady Funds Of His Show

John Oliver-Alex Jones

On Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight,” John Oliver explained how the conspiracy theorist Alex Jones ― who has ties to President Donald Trump ― spends a significant amount of time on the air promoting a range of products. Jones tells viewers that he sells these items to help fund his program.

“At the start of this piece, I promised Alex Jones that I would put his statements in context, because he is right, that if you play small clips in isolation he looks like a loon,” Oliver said. “But if you play them in context, he looks like a skilled salesman spending hours a day frightening you about problems like ‘refugees spreading disease’ and then selling you an answer.”
