John Oliver warns that both presidential candidates come with their faults, Monday night marks the first presidential debate of the 2016 election.
Oliver has spoken out against Trump before, Oliver warns that while both candidates come with their baggage, Hillary’s baggage pale in comparison to Trump’s.
“You can be irritated by some of Hillary’s [scandals] ― that is understandable ― but you should then be fucking outraged by Trump’s,” Oliver said on Last Week Tonight.
Oliver broke down what we actually know about Hillary’s history with scandal and it is only fair with Donald Trump. While he calls her out for lying in the media, her mistakes, Oliver asserts, are small flubs compared to the ethical compromises Trump has committed over the years.
“On top of Trump’s personal tax records, there are unanswered questions about his business dealings. As many experts have pointed out, his investments, debts and business ties span the globe and could present unprecedented ethical challenges for a president,” he said.
To simplify, Oliver uses an oatmeal raisin cookie example, Which is very smart.
“Ethical failings in a politician are like raisins in a cookie. They shouldn’t be there. They disgust people. But most politicians have at least a few raisins,” he said. Well said.
