John Oliver Has Just Eviscerated Tony Abbott

In the most recent, anger-inducing and geographically relevant edition of its world affairs segment world leaders say the darndest things Other Countries’ Presidents Of The United StatesLast Week Tonight with John OliverHBO’s uproarious satirical news program hosted by everyone’s favourite former Jon Stewart understudy and fearless Daily Show correspondent, John Oliver, takes aim at Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott

Describing Tones as a “hard line right-wing Prime Minister…who rose to power promising to be pro-business and religiously anti-immigration,” who has “personally insulted everyone else in the country, from women to gays to anyone remotely Irish to elderly cancer-ridden phone sex workers,” the ensuing package is a tragicomic greatest hits compilation featuring winkgate, the “suppository of wisdom” quote, that time he entered a Walter White like fugue state and his deplorable opinions on women, homosexuals and immigrants. 

This isn’t the first time we’ve caught Oliver’s attention, following a compelling piece on gun control reform in which he interviewed the majestic eyebrows of John Howard and a report on the unprecedented gaffe-parade that was the Australian federal election.  
Laugh until you cry, Australia.
