    If Vince McMahon ran for President I might have to toss a coin vs voting for a Dem for the first time ever. President Hand-Wave stole and corrupted my former party. Thanks, John, for making the bitter realities of our time a bit easier to endure.

    fight Island is good. uf-sea is creative. you wouldn't call "fight club" fight house or fight shack. fight island needs more dynamics than an octagon. covid-19 is a scare tactic bioweapon. it only affects those with a bad immune system, as it is designed to get rid of the weak. eugenics at work, bioengineered in a lab with patents.

    mister smithPrije 11 sati

    the covid-19 was invented in part by china, Bill gates, George Soros and more. this is a test. this is to control the mass of the populations. what will people sacrifice for freedom. obviously, everything for most. this is scary. they don't have to prove deaths from covid-19, medical facilities get paid 18,000+ per victim without proof. I am not saying its not real, its just no worse than the average flu. if you trade freedom for security, you deserve none.

    "UF-SEA" Dana White apparently didn't like some aspects of your truly honest coverage, but grabbed the trademark and said "Thanks, John Oliver. I'm not giving you a cut, either." Who cares? Not John Oliver; as long as 'UF-SEA' is used, everyone will know that it was because of Last Week Tonight. Owned. cheers.

    Sports are more important to our countriea health than social distancing. Mock battle is frequently the only thing preventing us from trying real battle. Notice how long without team sports it took to start burning businesses? Not a coincidence.

  22. Ryan kilgour

    Ryan kilgourPrije 13 sati

    Pro sports are a waste of money. The stadiums and equipment to the fans hard earned money. 12 billion dollar loss? No that means people have money in their pockets. Sucks for employees but how much money do ppl waste on this? I'm okay to see pro sports die. The one guy doesn't have a hoop? You play pro basketball.... buy one!

    Dear John, I know I'm' gonna come out like a tiny whiny bitch, but for your information, I'm french. I would love if you could talk about BLM and how it has influenced us worldwide to fight against our own racism, so that the USA know that their not alone, but also that Europe may act fancy, but truly is a place of entitled motherfuckers. I'm half english and half Ivorian, and my dad is named John. So for no reason, I'm claiming that you owe me this (UK style baby!!). Do this, or you won't be able to eat french pâtisseries again. Truly yours, Non White People from Europe being fucked in silence while cooking your croissant.

    Я не видел людей уже несколько лет. Думал, после войны их нигде уже нет. Но сегодняшним утром... Я нашёл след! В мире мало воды, и её нельзя пить, Заражённая плоть всюду брошена гнить. Вам нужна катастрофа, чтоб оценить: Что есть мусор, а где Свет Жизни?! Припев. Это любовь уносит меня! Посмотри, она всюду! Эта любовь открыла тебя Для меня - и быть чуду! Помню: огненный шторм! Непроглядная тьма! Восемь месяцев ночь! И 3 года зима! Это люди сошли из-за денег с ума! Всё богатство людей - это грязь и гнильё! Так пускай мертвецы охраняют своё! Для меня же бесценно - встретить её, Эту новую жизнь вне смерти! Припев. Это любовь уносит меня! Посмотри, она всюду! Эта любовь открыла тебя Для меня - и быть чуду! Ты наверху ждёшь меня... Это как новая жизнь вне смерти!

    John UFC already doing it safely. We know you hate them because Dana supports Trump, but they are doing it safely. Jacare already had it when he came to the event and the UFC found out, got him and his family help, prevented them from spreading it, and no other fighters or staff got it from him.

    It sickens me that famous people corporations and these sports teams are making money off this tragedy!!! Should a face mask that’s meant to save lives cost 10 20 even 30 dollars??? All these entity seen a way to STILL GET YOUR MONEY and are taken advantage of it!!! question do these mask have a metal strap that closes over the nose tightly and fits tight around the face ?? Can germs still come in through the lose fitting sections??? I know here in the US we send billions in aid everywhere, why not take 2 maybe 3 days worth of money out of the 30/31days of the month we would send else where and provide mask FREE to all that needs or want them!!! Idk maybe it’s just my crazy 🤔
