It's difficult for a show such as Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, that broaches so many topical subjects, to not address tragedy in the news.
On Saturday evening a gunman shot and killed dozens of innocent people in a club in Orlando, South Florida.
Oliver opened the show by saying “It’s still early and details are still emerging and right now this just hurts,” Adding. “And the worst thing is, this pain is so familiar. In Paris last November, terrorists seemed to target places that symbolise everything that is wonderful about France — culture, music, restaurants. And in Orlando early this morning a gunman attacked a Latin night at a gay club in the theme park capital of the world. And for the record, I will happily embrace a Latin night at a gay club in the theme park capital of the world as the ultimate symbol of what is truly wonderful about America.”
Oliver then deep dived into the planned piece on Retirement Plans in the US - with contributions from Billy Eichner (we love Billy on the Street) and Kristin Chenoweth.
