    "The buck doesn't stop with me, it's not my fault." I paraphrased, obviously, but I wanted to cut through the crap, that's basically what Trump's saying. And John's signing off was quite heartfelt and touching. ❤ Take care everyone.

    My 30s is me complaining that the treatment for a pinched nerve in my neck that's crippling my arm and hand leaving me in intense pain, making it hard for me to sleep leaving me chronically exhausted and interfering with my ability to work has been postponed indefinitely. I could end up permanently disabled if I have to wait too long. But yeah, your sports team has to cancel. #Firstworldproblems

    Hold up a minute, while I clear the air for Rudy Gobert. BEFORE the presser (which was done more than 2 days before Rudy's test results), all players were told not to touch the microphones because the media could spread Covid-19 to the players. What Rudy did, by touching the microphones, wasn't an act of defiance but a show of trust and solidarity with the media. After Trump's multiple attacks on journalists DURING Covid-19 pressers, it was a breath of fresh air for a celebrity to stand up for and actually respect journalists, something I'd like to think a comedian could appreciate.

    Interesting how the lack of an audience that's been cued to laugh at his dialogue highlights John Oliver's startling mediocrity. Time for John to retire and permanently self-isolate.

    everyone in the US... self isolate... now. Right NOW... Right this minute. Do it!!!!! No parties, no jogging, no shopping. Sit at home in your underwear and watch TV. Two weeks.... that's it, you can do it.

    It's unfortunate that people congregate around certain ideas and live in bubbles. Of course, I never heard about cure-all toothpaste, so it can be said that I live in a bubble, too.

      @TheQwuilleran Your dreams called, they can't make it here today but they said they'd be here as soon as you're ready so get to it, you have a life to reorganize. Good luck.

    Context Matters.So i just watch the full clip of Gerolda Rivera. He said if you don't have fever and can hold your breath 10 second you dont have this disease... before that (10 second clip) he explain that if you are feeling well don't panic don't rush to hospital.

    no laugh track? But with out a social cue dems wont know how to act like each other.


    in Italy nobody had to chose who gets treatments and who don't. this is a false information! of course, the italian health care system had strong difficulties because covid-19 is a pandemic but in Italy no doctor had to chose which life save!

    It's weird when he tells a joke and no one laughs

  • Trendpeter

    you should wear mask even when you don't have symptoms. I know there are hard to get and medical stuff needs them, but it helps to decrease the spread of covid19 marginally.

    I know there's no audience to help John get pumped up, but does he really need to talk like someone's sleeping in the next room?

  • d3w3yd3c1m4l

    John Oliver, if you're listening, renters are going on rent strikes, banks are deferring mortgages, where's the credit card companies in all this? Not a peep in the media about interest charge moratoriums during epidemic.

    stop sabotaging President. If it were BO now, it would be at least 10X worse. when Trump banned flights you guys said xenophobia. the testing system inherited from prior administration was failing. how could you blame that on Trump. Trump 2020.

    • Cebe north

      Is that sarcasm? Nothing can sabotage Trump, not even himself. He tries for years, but his moronic supporters keep cheering. It is the ultimate test, the next republican candidate can be a a beaver with rabies or da stone with a swastika drawn on doesn't matter, who elects Trump will elect those too.

  • PissedOffRedneck1

    thank you, you rock

  • Baraz

    *Physical* distancing. A few wise ones have noted we should remain *social*, but physically distant as much as possible or viable. Most importantly, avoid contact with the elderly unless you offer an essential service.

  • Baraz

    I find it funny how you can feel John offers short pauses where normally the crowd would react :P Must be weird for him as he says. ( yoops, I am two weeks late )

    Thank you John. With so much craziness and anxiety a familiar voice and a sane message is something we all need. Stay safe and keep your family close. PS. Honestly my sadness over the hockey season being “postponed” is the most irrational thing I’ve ever felt but I completely understand your pain.

  • Riverdeepnwide

    In Rudy's case it seems Covid 19 acted more like a zombie infection. Certainly overcame his lack of a brain.

    "Be like British Parents", LOL! After a marriage to a British, "public school" bloke, I really appreciate this comment.

  • saelaco

    the jokes are funnier without audience and the serious notes are more serious. this is a good set up, despite how bad things had to be to get here.
