John Oliver: Our Infrastructure Is So Bad, Even Donald Trump Gets It

When even Donald Trump admits it, we know there's a problem!

By the way, that bridge in Philadelphia? It's a piece of I-95, the East Coast's major north-south highway. And that crack is about a mile from my house! Via Talking Points Memo:

In a 20-minute segment urging people to face growing infrastructure problems in the U.S., Oliver was forced to admit Trump had something right.

"Here's how obvious our need is: just two days ago, even a total idiot agreed," he said. He rolled tape of Trump at CPAC on Friday.

"We have to rebuild our infrastructure," the star of "Celebrity Apprentice" told the conservative crowd. "Our roads are crumbling, everything is crumbling, and we're rebuilding China!"

Putting aside the non-sequitur about "rebuilding China," an awestruck Oliver had no choice but to agree with Trump.

"That upside-down piece of candy corn in a wig made of used medical gauze is right!" he said.
