John Oliver Compares Trump And Clinton 'Scandals'

John Oliver lays down 22 minutes of truth about Hillary's email versus Donald Trump's University etc...

We now know what John Oliver was doing while he was "off" for several weeks: he was investigating the "scandals" surrounding Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

His explanation of Hillary's e-mails is as complete and understandable as anything on television, ever. And it truly puts to shame cable news, who has literally had months to "cover" this story, but can never find more than 90 seconds to breathe innuendo and repeat talking points from Trump supporters.

It only takes about 20 minutes to gain a complete understanding of both candidates and their financial dealings, and that includes the jokes.

This segment is about one-one hundredth the length of time cable news spent looking at Donald Trump's empty podium during the primaries. Think about that.

Be sure to say for the end, where Oliver gets rained on by raisins. No, really.

Think of it like this: Ethical failings in a politician are like raisins in a cookie ... They shouldn't be there. They disgust people. But most politicians have at least a few raisins. Hillary arguably has more raisins than average. There's probably 10 of these little f*ckers in there … But [Trump] is a f*cking raisin monsoon! He is ethically compromised to an almost unprecedented degree. So if you don't like raisins, I get it – they're disgusting. But unfortunately, this November, you're gonna have to swallow 10 or we're all going to be eating this sh*t for years.
