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.
