John Oliver Discusses #Orlando

I don’t know if it’s just because I’m a huge John Oliver fan, or if maybe it took me a whole day to officially let the reality sink in about the Orlando tragedy and now I’m really starting to get emotional about it, but this clip in particular hit me harder than any I’ve watched yet.

Memorializing the victims is the right thing to do, and John eloquently (and slightly NSFW-ish) explains his feelings on the matter. Perfect.

Not to pile on the sadness even more, but it especially reminded me of what his cohort & former co-worker Jon Stewart did after the 9/11 tragedy. Watch that video here.


About justin

Justin grew up a country boy in a female-dominated family that smoothed him into the softie he is today. A Seattle radio personality since 2007, he's perfected the art of never taking himself seriously and isn't afraid to cry at movies. Find him riding a scooter (nicknamed "Ivy" after Blue Ivy Carter) through the mean streets of Queen Anne in Seattle or twitter-stalking the Seattle Mariners!
