After sending a bleak warning to his fellow Brits last week not to leave the European Union, John Oliver returned in the wake of the 'Brexit' to lament the decision that has screwed not only the British economy, but the entire global financial system.
Oliver went after the U.K. Independence Party leader and quasi fascist Nigel Farage, calling him the “three-time cover model for Punchable Face magazine” and referred to Boris Johnson, another major figure in the Brexit movement and heir apparent to David Cameron as “a shaved orangutan with Owen Wilson’s hair.” Drawing parallels with the United States and its own dalliance with an orange haired xenophobe, Oliver sent a bleak warning to US citizens over their upcoming election:
You might think, ‘Well that is not going to happen to us in America. We’re not going to listen to some ridiculously haired buffoon, peddling lies and nativism in the hopes of riding a protest vote into power.
Well let Britain tell you, it can happen, and when it does, there are no fucking do-overs.
