French Elections: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO) | He Kills this One | Outstanding

There's acerbic and there's an all-out slashfest with this one culminating in a way you will never guess.  Brilliant, top to bottom.

He mocks the ludicrous French electoral system but gets off a sweet shot at the way America does it. You heard all the agita over the Electoral College after the election and the outraged protestors screamed, by God, we're going to change this.  Unknown for y'all but we hear only crickets now.

Just for the juniors, that happens every season.  It's like the bitching about Daylight Savings Time.  The bitching comes every year and nothin' ever happens.

John Oliver was firing guns all over the place in this one and, as always, they're dead accurate but they do leave a bit of blood on the floor.  The ending is brilliant and no possible chance you will guess what comes.
