    If you just “go with how people feel” what you get is a society that’s an

    The people who founded the country, made it really hard for any president
    to be anything but the president. Felt like John should know that just on

    This logic is so flawed:
    1. Relating a reaction over an endorsement to concealing information about
    a danger makes no sense. Funny thing about it, it ended up being a win-win
    situation for Trump.
    2. Crime is worse today AROUND THE WORLD. Thank you, Radical Islamic
    Terrorism.
    3. America is in a really bad economic spot, contrary to your belief.
    Manufacturing jobs is at an all time low. The wage gap is higher than ever
    before. And to top it all off, The National Debt is almost $20 trillion.
    I will agree with the arguement against Newt Gingrich though. A politician
    should not be able to create facts. However, this one can go both ways as
    Obama claims the world is in a better state than ever before even though
    there have been more terrorist attacks in this year alone compared to the
    past decade.

    it is EXTREMELY hypocritical of Democrats to want facts over feelings when
    the entire point of political correctness and all the bullshit that comes
    with PC culture is intended to do exactly that: protect people’s feelings
    rather than embracing facts. They’re more concerned about colleges having
    “safe spaces” and inexplicably forcing LGBT characters into out media to
    further their supposed idea of “progress” and “diversity” than they are
    about National Security. When did Americans get so thin-skinned that they
    can’t brush off a little insult here or there. Grow some balls America. If
    it takes a little bit of unpleasant action to protect the American people
    then do what you have to do. The people who cry about getting offended over
    trivial bullshit can either leave the country or suck it up and move on
    with your life. Also it’s kinda hard to buy those FBI statistics since
    Hillary already got off the hook with them.

    John is is right about all of this.
    Donald Trump is the worst candidate America has ever had, which makes me
    sad that he has come this far.
    And it is exactly why you should vote for him, Hillary is in fact, not the
    better options just because she is the lesser of two evils.
    Europe needed the worst humanity had to offer to realise they were doing
    something wrong and try to fix it (Hitler)
    USA, YOU need the worst humanity has to offer to realise you’re doing
    something wrong, so you can fix it.
    The proof that you need him, to show you your own truth, is the fact that
    he made it this far in the election.
    For the sake of your nations future, Vote Drumpf.

    And he is right about one thing, your nation is more corrupt than it has
    ever been, though I doubt he has any intention of stopping it.

    Saying that the average American doesn’t feel safer while the average
    American is actually safer can be credited to the media. If they didn’t
    sensationalize every bad thing that happened then we wouldn’t feel as
    threatened.

    Trumps here trying to convince us he’s going to help with the poverty
    problem, what a load of $&@%, I mean if he was going to help poverty, why
    doesn’t he help us now, especially since he emphasizes being a successful
    businessman with billions of dollars. Now that I’m thinking about it the
    stupid wall is probably going to dig America down further into the hole
    that we were already in.

    If a presidential candidate openly expresses admiration for dictators like
    Kim Yung Un, Saddam Hussein and Vladimir Putin then that should make some
    alarm bells ring in our head. The Germans already made such a mistake once
    in the past so be smart Americans and don’t repeat their mistake.

    I subscribed to you because I thought that you had honest commentaries on
    many issues which is usually true, but on a day where the DNC is exposed
    for being corrupt, you put a video out about the RNC which was quite
    honestly nitpicking. If your biggest quarrels with the RNC were that a
    speech writer sucks and Donald Trump allowed Ted Cruz to speak despite the
    fact that he wasn’t going to endorse him then the DNC is already screwed.

    I would’ve loved it if John Oliver made a parallel with how the
    Conservative Republicans used their feelings to create facts, and how the
    liberals use their feelings to create genders. They’re both stupid, and
    they both need to shut up and acknowledge facts. Missed out on a pretty
    good joke there, but alas.

    257 mass shootings this year which is unbelievable but hey, crime in this
    country is down since Obama took office. over 90% of terrorists attacks are
    done by Muslims, don’t worry bro Islam is the religion of peace.
    You want a better system in place to make sure each and every Muslims isn’t
    a threat to American families, you must be a piece of shit racist.. Every
    Muslim has the right to kill Americans and take their homes, I mean that’s
    what the Germans are doing so let’s copy them.
    You people need to watch what these people actually say and not listen to
    someone spew propaganda bullshit.

    During Obama’s administration the economy has been manipulated to destroy
    the middle market, instead we have working poor and the 1%. And crime rates
    may go down but the heinousness of crimes has gone up, terrorist attacks,
    school shootings, and mass killing sprees is more frequent in Obama’s
    administration than with Bush’s or Clinton’s. And that includes 9/11 and
    the black church burning’s Jon Oliver is twisting Trump’s points. Obviously
    Jon is a liberal why else would he ever make a story about Hilary’s
    involvement in the Bengazi attack? And how her illegal emails disqualifies
    her from being president.

    the hysterical ravings of this convention is truly indescribable, and
    that’s after the mccain/palin ticket, which fucking followed the
