    I want to see their text with the same speech that they used ran through one of those writing analysis programs that rate what level your writing is at. I am genuinely curious as to whether he or the text would be rated higher than the other.

    I don't comment too often, but I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed this type of video, it was a surprisingly pleasant change. You did a wonderful job taking a very complicated issue and being able to discuss it in a manner that's very approachable without feeling like there is an underlying political stance you are taking. Very enjoyable, and also I wanted to congratulate you on a hundred thousand subscribers. Haven't been able to personally do that yet. Take care, and I look forward to the next video.

    Everyone please pause the video at 14:12 and just take in the joy on John Oliver's face, you can just tell he's thinking we may not have gotten him on the coal thing but WE GOT HIM, WE DID GET HIM!!!! He just fakes doing work while he's in the White House.

    How can they be right wing extremists if they are nazis? Hoping people stop associating nazis with the right consider nazi means national SOCIALIST! nationalism can be from either the left or right but socialism a specifically leftist ideology. Annoys me so much when people call nazis right wing.

    • Stephen2462
      Stephen2462 4 days ago

      Not particularly. Hitler may have preached some socialist leaning stuff early on, but it by-and-large went out the window once he came into power. He was very much at odds with communists in general, and fought against/invaded communist countries just as fervently as he did everyone else. The Nazis were far more geared towards nationalism then anything else.

    My brother used to whatabout me all the time. Now he's picked up my mother's trait to say " You're always right. Whatever" in the middle of a conversation and leave. So I'd say the evolution to whataboutism is whateverism

    Well, watching Trump on that interview about his comments on Obama's surveillance shows that he is one of the worst liars in history. Not only does he keep trying to divert the subject matter of the reporter's questions, but at the end moves behind his desk like a child caught stealing cookies from the jar.

    Lmfao when he complains about trump being smug about being called the worlds biggest troll or whatever xD

  • Patrick McCaffrey
    Patrick McCaffrey 12 days ago

    His whataboitism joke about a court case instantly crumbles when you realize that that’s literally what happens in court.
    You refer to precedents in the past of rulings on similar cases to inform your treatment of the current case.
    It’s not a defense of the issue, it’s a criticism of the accuser. It protects against double standards and bias.

    • Patrick McCaffrey
      Patrick McCaffrey 11 days ago

      "It’s not a defense of the issue, it’s a criticism of the accuser."
      It's almost as if I specifically pointed out that it's not a defense of Trump's shitty actions.
      But hey, "Ignorance to facts is why he became president in the first place." And the fact is that he's not the only one doing shitty things, he just isn't afraid to dare you all to either enforce your principles across the board or to but your own foot in your mouth and keep partisan agenda politics.

    • Paul William

      WTF are you talking about? After all the ignorantly abysmal nonsensical things the "president" has done, you still find time to support him? You're a cancer to the world and people who think like you. John pointed out the hypocrisy and uselessness of his presidency with facts, when Trump gets called out on some stupid s**t he said, he backs out and changes the subject. That's trolling
      101 and shows the kind of person he is. Idk who would think that Donald Trump, the same man who went bankrupt 4 times, sells tacky clothing, his university was fake and the degrees were of no value, could rule a whole nation? He's a failure as it is but his supporters are the most stupid of all. Ignorance to facts is why he became president in the first place. Either you're too stupid to realize that his presidency is a failure or you're just as shallow minded as he is.😒😑🖕

  • Mr. Nickolas John Krznarich

    John...This is THE UNIVERSAL DIRECTOR...You will love this. Before Mr. Donald John Trump has to facilitate the ending of The Presidency (Yes, you heard me right) (I have explained why in other TVclip comments, please look them up by asking Google for a list of my comments) I want him to perform a cameo role as The President to do a punch jump routine with Moe. Please look up my movie idea in the TVclip comment section regarding The Three Stooges The Movie. I think you will agree this is a great movie idea that would make at-least $300 to $400 Million dollars.

    It was the lefts moral relativism that got Trump elected. People got tired of the left because the left kept saying that the USA was no better than Nazi Germany or Stalinist Russia. The left trained the American people to find moral relativism acceptable.
    Right: "Look, Mao just killed 50-60 million Chinese."
    Left: "What about the 2 million native Americans that your great-great-great-great grandfathers killed? You have no right to criticize those 50-60 million murders by the Communist Party."
    The left taught these values to our kids in school with Value Clarification and Lifeboat. They taught us that we our lifeboat only had room for 2 people and we had to choose these 2 people from the 5 survivors. In other words, things like life and truth are not important. It is all relative.
    "Whataboutism" is the main argument of the proabortion people.
    "A new human with a new, unique genetic code is created at conception."
    "But, what about when the mom already has 3 kids?"
    "But, what about if the family has low income?"
    "But, what about if the woman needs 3 more years to get her career going?"
    "But, what about (insert 30 more excuses here)?"

    “Whataboutism” wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the press. People can see with their own eyes the biased and unfair treatment of candidates they don’t approve of.
    Trump isn’t the first person it’s happened to. You might remember the unfair treatment they gave to Ron Paul back in 2012, which Jon Stewart did a piece on when he was still on the daily show.
    Whataboutism is basically peoples reactions to being fed up with a biased press who wants to only attack the people and subjects they CHOOSE to attack, while ignoring things/ people they have an interest in

    I don't know why nobody mentions that trump sends out a newsletter to his followers every few days and at the bottom of every newsletter is a "Donate Now" button. I subscribed just to see what he's sending out and for weeks I got emails saying that my subscription would be cancelled if I didn't renew it for $1. I didn't but yet I am still subscribed. Just another hustle to squeeze every penny that he can get from us. Btw I'm in Canada.

    I’m fairly confident both sides have used this “whataboutism” every single presidency. I recall a lot of “what about bush” during Obama’s presidency. Basically, we elect an idiot, whether red or blue, then blame everything they screw up on the previous opposite color. Amazing that anyone thinks there’s actually a difference between the political parties. It’s all a ruse folks 👍🏻
