On Sunday evening, John Oliver kicked off the latest edition of Last week tonight joking about how Fox News and the right-wing media decided to ignore the Jan. 6 congressional hearings.

“The House committee investigating Jan. 6 held its first prime-time hearing, sparking a crisis for the conservative media. Fox News opted not to air it at all, and OAN took it a step further: airing a tribute to Trump instead with this exquisite transition to commercials,” Oliver explained.

He then teased a clip of OAN anchor Pearson Sharp during their ‘Trump: Legacy of a Patriot’ special, saying, “You have inspired countless millions and shown our nation what it really means to make America great again. From One America News, I’m Pearson Sharp. OAN then followed up with an ad for RexMD.com touting “generic Viagra delivered within 48 hours in discreet packaging” to your mailbox.

After that, the host focused on the heated Senate race in Arizona for a seat held by Democrat Mark Kelly, which could shift the balance of power in the Senate. Trump recently chose to back Blake Masters, a venture capitalist and sidekick to Peter Thiel whose campaign was funded by $10 million in Thielbucks.

“If you think his name alone makes him look like a third-tier Bond villain, wait until you hear about his everything elsebecause Masters is a self-proclaimed ‘conservative nationalist’ backed by Peter Thiel, and since Trump’s endorsement things have started to surface about him,” Oliver said.

One of those things was an appearance he made on “The Jeff Oravits Show” podcast in April of this year, where Masters said, “We have a gun violence problem in this country, and that’s gang violence. Right? It’s gangs, it’s people from Chicago, St. Louis, shooting at each other. Very often, you know, black people, frankly.

“OKAY. Blaming black people for gun violence in America is outrageously racist, but it’s also not surprising coming from someone who – and it’s true – has been called an “immigration patriot” by the white nationalist website VDARE, which praised him saying he “checks all the right stuff”. boxes.’ ”

“OK. Blaming black people for gun violence in America is outrageously racist, but it’s also not surprising coming from someone who – and it’s true – has been called a ‘patriot of the ‘immigration’ by the white nationalist website VDARE, which praised him saying he ‘checks all the right boxes.’ He’s an immigration patriot who ticks all the white supremacy boxes. just isn’t what you want to hear from a man running for office. You don’t even wanna hear it in one sex and the city Voice off.”

Oliver continued, “Masters also embraces a nationwide ban on abortion, wondered if Jan. 6 was set up by the FBI, and then there’s this interview in which he chooses the exact wrong answer to the question. review: Who is a subversive thinker who is underrated? »

He then played a clip of Masters on the “Subversive with Alex Kaschuta” podcast where he answered that question, saying, “I’m probably going to get in trouble for saying that. I would say…how about Theodore Kaczynski? It’s probably not great to talk about the Unabomber during the campaign.

“Yeah…probably not!” exclaimed Oliver. “Also, I’m sorry, Theodore Kaczynski? What are you? His mother while he’s in trouble? “Theodore John Kaczynski, did you send mailbombs to airlines and universities across the country from a remote cabin in the Montana wilderness? You are so grounded, sir! Wicked Theodore! »
