In a percentage of 1% death rate, it means at least 1 million Brazilians will die.

  • Once again John Oliver is just repeating the old tired memes of the corrupt media. There's nothing to see here folks, the COVID-19 pandemic was a HOAX. Anthony Fauci admitted weeks ago that it is no more deadly than "a bad seasonal flu: %.01 fatality rate. It's all spin and theatre and you (and John) fell for it. If you want to not get sick, try socializing, reducing stress, running in fresh air (no mask required) exposing yourself to germs (so your immune system can function and get stronger) and getting the virus, so we can acheive herd immunity. AND SHUT OFF THE DAMN IDIOT BOX. YOU WERE ALL PLAYED.

  • "And by the way, I'd love to say that I would vote for that hamster for the president, but, given that their average life expectancy is just three years, I'm really gonna have to wait to find out who his vp pick is." Oh, wow... I believe that's more direct criticism of Joe Biden than MSNBC, CNN, and many other national news organizations will ever be willing to say about Mr. Biden. And yes, I know that what John Oliver said here is actually not unambiguously aimed at Biden at all and comes in the form of a joke, but it's still something other than the unending praise and complete lack of scrutiny toward Joe that many major media outlets seem committed to exclusively broadcast. I think Trump has been a terrible, terrible president, but that doesn't mean I need to ignore the flaws of everyone who says they are on 'my team' (in this case, somewhere to the left of the U.S. Republican party).
