John Oliver Explains the Current Migrant and Refugee Crisis on ‘Last Week Tonight’


Here’s a great clip from last night’s Last Week Tonight, in which John Oliver breaks down the current migrant and refugee crisis and some of the countries – and news outlets – who greet them with nothing but prejudice, disdain, and red tape. While Last Week Tonight might not be able to help all migrants struggling in Europe right now, they figured out a way to help one young Syrian refugee named Noujain Mustaffa who taught herself English by watching Days of Our Lives. Admittedly an EJ/Sami reunion might not be the most useful thing for Mustaffa right now, but at least it’s something.
