John Oliver opened “Last Week Tonight” on Sunday with a few profane words that many have no doubt already been using to describe the terrorists behind the Paris attacks.
“After the many and necessary moments of silence, I’d like to offer you a moment of premium cable profanity,” the HBO host said.
“Here is where things stand,” Oliver began. “First, as of now, we know this attack was carried out by gigantic f–king assholes. Unconscionable, flaming assholes, possibly working with other f—g assholes, definitely working in service of an ideology of pure assholery. Second, and this goes almost without saying, f–k these assholes. F–k them, if I may say, sideways.”
Oliver then stated that the terrorists efforts will fail and that “France is going to endure.” “If you’re in a war of culture and lifestyle with France, good f–king luck,” he said.
