John Oliver’s big segment last night on Last Week Tonight was about America’s drone program, more specifically how horrifying it is, as apparently little children in some parts of the world fear looking at the sky because they’re filled with U.S. death machines.
“When children from other countries are telling us that we’ve made them fear the sky,” Oliver remarked, “it might be time to ask some hard questions.”
Oliver went on: “Drone strikes are one of those things where it’s really convenient not to think about that much,” he said. “Like the daily life of a circus elephant, or the fact that Beck is a Scientologist. You really don’t want people reminding you of those kinds of things.”
