John Oliver Cannot Believe What He’s Seeing on NRA TV: ‘Holy S—‘ (Video)

Streaming network “might actually be the dumbest, most transparent thing” National Rifle Association does, HBO host says

The Oscars weren’t the only thing that aired on television last night: HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” was new, and John Oliver dissecting NRA TV is worth watching.

The “Daily Show” alum was rather disturbed by the streaming network’s slate, which includes the female-targeting “Love at First Shot.” The host of that show called the AR-15’s firing and kickback “a nice, light poof of happiness,” for example.

“It’s a little weird to describe a semi-automatic rifle the way Bob Ross describes a f—ing cloud,” Oliver said.

That’s not the only odd series Oliver and his writing staff binged in what must have been a weird week for them.

“The answer to the question ‘What the f— is NRA TV,’ is ‘It’s just a vessel to sell America guns,’” Oliver concludes.

“NRA TV might actually be the dumbest, most transparent thing” the National Rifle Association does, he decided.
