John Oliver Talks Trump’s Military Parade, Royal Weddings And The Winter Olympics

John Oliver is gearing up to return to his HBO series "Last Week Tonight" on February 18th. To warm up, the late-night host stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for a chat about the latest news. Colbert - who introduces his guest as being "best known as the voice of Vanity Smurf” - talks with Oliver about the most recent developments in Trumpland, including his proposed military parade. “We had military parades across India,” deadpans the British Oliver, who also thinks that “[Trump's] gonna watch the Royal Wedding and think 'I want one of those'."

Then in a second bit, the two hosts talk about the upcoming Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Oliver talks about British athlete Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards, who got into ski jumping before there was a qualifying requirement to hit the jump in the Olympics.  “A crazy British guy just decided ‘how hard can ski jumping be?’," explains Oliver, "and he f***ing learned."


A non-profit group of over 150 current and former athletes is calling for marijuana to be removed form the World Anti-Doping Agency's prohibited substances list. Medical marijuana legalization is spreading across the US, but most pro-athletes are still prevented from accessing it. That's because most major sports leagues follow drug guidelines set by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which bans athletes from using cannabis even outside of competition.
