Response to cyclonefence (Original post)

11. John was MEAN last night -

I thought his video of Chris Matthews was terribly cruel. Matthews has great insight - he is lost in his thoughts about issues at hand - and his value lies in his insight. I stumble on my words and I'm not 74.

Also - Peatum Defeatum? Seriously? Pete had JUST suspended his campaign and Oliver couldn't manage to show some respect?

The previous week, he drew an analogy between our current healthcare system and a shit sandwich. Then he went after Pete - only one of the multiple candidates recommending a policy short of Medicare for All - and called it a shit sandwich with less shit and a dollop of guacamole on top. I didn't like it, but he was focused on the policy so I thought it was "within bounds".

This past week he was OUT of bounds. WAY OUT of bounds.

John Oliver is typically awesome. He needs to stop with the cruelty.
