Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

"'Last Week Tonight with John Oliver' is a half-hour satirical look at 
the week in news, politics and current events."

The show is hosted by a UK expat comedian/actor, now living in the US. 
HBO posts the shows to a YouTube channel after they're broadcast:

A recent show applied a blowtorch to Donald Drumpf/Trump. Unfortunately, 
for viewers outside the US, there is a delay before shows become 
available. You might be able to find unofficial uploads if you search 
for it on YouTube ;)

Here's a selection of videos from last year...

* Daylight Saving Time - How Is This Still A Thing?
I agree, it should be abolished.

* Nuclear Weapons
Cold War kids may have thought the collapse of Communism in the USSR and 
its satellite states made the world safer. Perhaps not so much. This 
piece is both funny and scary at the same time.

* Drones

* Miss America Pageant
