John Oliver’s takedown of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump’s acquittal is simply perfect
There’s been lots written and said about Donald Trump’s acquittal of inciting the mob attack on the US Capitol in his record-breaking second impeachment.
But rarely is the whole thing summed up quite so well as the brilliant John Oliver in this 33 second clip about Ted Cruz and the impeachment process.

Brilliantly done, from HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver which you can see in the UK over on Sky Atlantic. And just a few of the things people were saying about it after the clip went viral on Twitter.
“Dead eyes. Empty heart. Ted Cruz.”

So much for honoring oaths and being “impartial jurors” https://t.co/cNE1mqlXgO

I love him. I sometimes wish he’d slow down a little bit, as awesome lines like this don’t get the emphasis they deserve.

About as perfect a tagline to sum up this sociopathic clown’s entire existence as I’ve ever seen

Could you imagine a legal proceeding in which the jurors meet with the defense lawyers to assure them that they can just sing for whatever time is allotted to them since the outcome is fixed? @tedcruz @marcorubio @LindseyGrahamSC @LeaderMcConnell https://t.co/P9c3nBYHN7

To conclude …
Love me some John Oliver to get my blood boiling while also laughing out loud. https://t.co/NziJIiTnxl
