John Oliver Hails Parkland Survivors [VIDEO]

The Independent reports:

John Oliver‘s return to screens with the new season of Last Week Tonight began on a sombre note, addressing the “heartbreaking events” that took place in Parkland, Florida, last Wednesday.  “These events are now so familiar,” Oliver commented. “We basically automatically know how each side will play out.”

“But this time felt slightly different,” he continued. “Because when the ‘now’s not the time’ argument came out, the kids from that school said, ‘You know what? Yes it fucking is.’” Survivors of the shooting have already announced that they will lead a nationwide demonstration to demand action on gun control.
