If you believe that Hillary Clinton is in any way comparable to the lecherous, lying thug running against her for President this November, John Oliver has some choice words for you. 

In his return to HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” last night, Oliver delivered a powerful monologue on the election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump that has to be his most important to date. 

Oliver compared the scandals both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have been involved in, and surprise, surprise, found they weren't in the same universe. While there are some "irritating" discrepancies in Clinton's account of the email scandal and some questionable donations the Clinton Foundation took, there is no conclusive evidence that Hillary Clinton has done anything illegal or engaged in activity that would prevent her from becoming President of the United States. 

"We've spent several frustrating weeks trawling through all the innuendo and exaggerations surrounding her email and foundation scandals, and the worst thing you can say is they both look bad, but the harder you look, the less you actually find," said Oliver. "There's not nothing there, but what is there is irritating rather than grossly nefarious."

However, Oliver argued that Trump is “quantifiably worse” and "ethically compromised to an almost unprecedented degree,” so much so that the public should be "fucking outraged" over the series of scandals he has been involved in, including his fraudulent university, his refusal to share his tax history or any of his business dealings, and his charitable foundation that has essentially been used as a tool to further his business interests. 

Oliver thoroughly trashed the notion that there is any equivalency between the two candidates whatsoever, and urged viewers to go out and vote for Clinton in order to prevent the nation from imminent disaster. Watch below:
