TIME-WARNER-HBO-CNN SPOKESMAN JOHN OLIVER CALLS BORIS JOHNSON A ‘SHAVED ORANGUTAN’ AND DAVID CAMERON A ‘PIG-F***ER’ IN NINE-MINUTE ANTI-BREXIT RANT ON US TV: “Prominent pro-Brexit politician and leader of the UK Independence Party Nigel Farage was savaged as having a ‘punchable face.’”

Oliver is employed by the same corporation that issued an on-air apology minutes after a guest on a CNN program used the term “crosshairs” during a segment in January of 2011, when the left’s modified limited hangout required claiming that Sarah Palin’s election clipart magically led to the shooting a Democratic senator and Republican-appointed federal judge.

He’s also employed by the same corporation that led an on-air jeremiad against “bullying,” only to bully pro-traditional marriage Florida AG Pam Bondi for no particular reason on air after an Islamic terrorist shot up an Orlando disco this month, and to tear into UKIP politician Ray Finch for daring to support Brexit. As Rod Dreher wrote last week, “Had he been on for a minute more, [Christiane Amanpour] would have blamed Orlando on Nigel Farage.”

To put it succinctly: “To Hell with You People.”

Update: “BREAKING: Guy who left Britain is upset Britain left the EU.” Heh. As Iowahawk recently tweeted, “a British version of John Oliver [covering American politics] would be a nightly BBC show with Larry the Cable Guy talking about how bad Britain sucks.”
