Look, there's no point in lying. Sometimes, and we mean very rarely, the topic on John Oliver's Last Week tonight has little no no bearing on our lives.

While food wastage, FIFA, sports stadia, and tobacco can transcend the fact that it's really an American interest show, something as niche as the Statehood of Washington DC and it's citizens voting rights isn't going to appeal to the majority of foreign viewers.

So while you might not get the same sense of outrage about this week's injustice, you can still just enjoy the comedy because, you know, it's a comedy show and it's hilarious.
