John Oliver On The Trump/Putin Friendship [VIDEO]

TIME recaps:

This week, Last Week Tonight turned its attention to Russia, which, John Oliver joked with viewers, is the country that gave us “potentially the 45th President of the United States.” As Oliver says, “It’s a bit weird that [Trump] has been objectively nicer to Vladimir Putin than to Meryl Streep.”

Trump has made no secret of his belief that it would “be nice if we got along with Russia” — to which Oliver counters, “It would be also be nice if you could walk right up to a bear and hug it.” To remind Trump that being friends with a man like Putin can be a risky proposition, Oliver staged a cheesy techno-pop song complete with dancers and a driving beat to drive home the point.
