John Oliver’s target last night was Equifax, and boy howdy, do these idiots deserve the trashing he delivers because we are all fucked:
It was a late night trifecta on Friday: Conan O’Brien was Stephen Colbert’s guest where he told a story about the horse that David Letterman gave him that he didn’t ask for.
Also, Stephen Colbert tries to talk to Conan about my all-time favorite writer, Flannery O’Connor, but Conan tells him a hilarious ring story instead.
Oliver compares Harvey Weinstein to a sex criminal Kool-Aid Man. Accurate.
Oliver also covered that idiot Trump gutting health care …
… and destroying the Iran Deal.
In other Late Night news, Jimmy Fallon gave an interview in which he explained that he’s not more political because that’s not what he does. This actually makes him the perfect host for The Tonight Show, but it does not make him the perfect late-night host for these particular times. Maybe if they made The Tonight Show a daytime show? Maybe give him Megyn Kelly’s spot since that doesn’t seem to be working out so great?
And Jimmy Kimmel gave an interview in which he defends the opposite, of becoming the moral conscience of late-night:
“Of course, you want as many people to watch your show as possible. But some things are more important than bringing in a big audience. I hope that we, as a nation, get back to a time where I can have a normal, well-rounded show, that’s more focused on Beyoncé and Jay-Z than Donald and Ivanka. But for the time being, this is what’s at the forefront of people’s minds.”
