Last Week Tonight host and former Daily Show correspondent John Oliver made an appearance on his fellow former Daily Show correspondent Stephen Colbert's new show this Wednesday, and it was as enjoyable as fans of both of these comedians could hope to expect.

The two discussed Oliver's new show on HBO and how they pick the topics they're going to focus on each week, and the fact that Oliver didn't realize they had a suggestion box on his show's web site for potential topics and whether they'd actually be inclined to follow any of them.

Colbert also gave Oliver a bit of grief about only doing a half hour show every week before they moved onto the topic of the 2016 election and Oliver's thoughts on Donald Trump. Sadly we can't seem to get the peckerheads who are telling pollsters they'd actually vote for this clown to agree: John Oliver Tells Stephen Colbert ‘I Couldn’t Give Less of a F-ck About Donald Trump:

“Last Week Tonight Show” doesn’t care about the election yet either, “It’s the 2016 election and it’s 2015 right now,” he says

Stephen Colbert said he talked about Donald Trump within “30 seconds” of taking over CBS’s “Late Show,” but guest and fellow Comedy Central alum John Oliver will do anything to avoid mentioning the Republican frontrunner.

“I couldn’t give less of a f–k. It’s physically impossible. It’s the 2016 election and it’s 2015 right now, I don’t care until we are in the same year as the thing I am supposed to care about,” the “Last Week Tonight” host bluntly told Colbert on Wednesday.

Also as a U.K. citizen, Oliver can’t even vote, so it would be “sensation without representation,” he quipped. “You got all pissy about it when we did it. Where’s my vote? I’ll throw your coffee into the river,” he said, referring to the American Revolution.

“As we’re on for half an hour every week, we don’t have to talk about the election,” Oliver explained, in fact, he would rather talk about “anything not election related. There are plenty of problems in the world.”

The pair of “Daily Show” alums went on to gush about how much they miss former boss Jon Stewart and praised incoming host Trevor Noah.

Colbert thought he “crushed it,” while Oliver warned that he is “taking on the impossible. You can’t replace the irreplaceable.” Read on...
