For those of you that don’t know or haven’t been on Youtube before, British comedian John Oliver and his HBO show Last Week Tonight have become household names in America. Oliver’s in-depth, satirical analysis of politics and world events has come in handy in the fight against the alarming rise of Donald Trump et al. He’s doing good things, and should be applauded!
Particularly pertinent to us here at Kerrang! though, is that Oliver name-dropped Slipknot on the show the other night. Trump’s latest bout of gauche showboating at a recent press conference prompted the below from Oliver:
Well, @CoreyTaylorRock, looks like you've made it. https://t.co/IhuvcdDjcB— Scott Davis (@indy_scott) Mon Oct 09 04:16:44 +0000 2017
Knowing how much Corey Taylor disapproves of Trump, we can imagine him finding this gag rather amusing.
