John Oliver’s Cereal Segment Takes Detour To Trash Marvel Movies

Published

on

John Oliver crunched up and spit out Marvel movies during a “Last Week Tonight” segment devoted to breakfast cereal. (Watch the video below.)

In a web exclusive posted Sunday, the host bemoaned the lack of exciting new cereals on the market. He hailed an old favorite, Reese’s Puffs, as one of the last to genuinely cause a stir.

“The point is, when was the last time cereal news penetrated the mainstream since then? I’ll tell ya ― it fucking hasn’t!” Oliver said.

He went on to praise the “one good cereal commercial” in the last decade ― a Frosted Flakes spot in which Tony the Tiger and Shaquille O’Neal debate who loves the cereal more.

“That is, start to finish, a perfect cereal commercial,” Oliver said. “In just half a minute, it establishes a world in which Tony the Tiger exists, has a handsomely decorated home office, including a custom Tony nameplate, apparently video chats Shaquille O’Neal every single morning for breakfast and that they love each other. That is a more richly detailed cinematic universe than what Marvel has made in 13 fucking years.”

Careful, John, that universe has a guy who can make half of civilization disappear in a hurry.

Americans Are ‘Sheep’ for Not Protesting COVID-19 Measures

Published

on

  • Donald Trump Jr. praised a recent wave of protests in Europe over new COVID-19 restrictions.
  • He told Fox News that Americans were “sheep” for not “pushing back.”
  • Trump Jr. also falsely claimed that the US media was suppressing reports about the European protests.

Donald Trump Jr. praised countries in Europe for protesting against COVID-19 restrictions and said American people were “sheep” for not doing the same.

The former president’s son made the comments while speaking to Fox News’s Dan Bongino on Saturday.

“Europe is pushing back, and America is sitting there like sheep. ‘Oh, this is great. We’ll just go along with what these guys who’ve gotten nothing right in the last two years tell us.’ It’s absolute insanity,” Trump Jr. said. 

 

Trump Jr. also falsely claimed that the media in the United States was deliberately not reporting on the recent wave of protests in Europe over COVID-19 winter restrictions, some of which turned into riots.

“You don’t hear about what’s going on as it relates to the riots in Europe on a daily basis now against the vaccine mandates because our media wants to block that out,” Trump Jr. said. 

“They’re going to make sure that you never hear about it because they don’t want you getting these kind of ideas that freedom may actually still exist in some parts of the world.”

Numerous major US news outlets, including The New York Times, Fox News, ABC News, and Insider, reported extensively on the European protests.

Several European countries have introduced new measures to combat the spread of COVID-19 as winter approaches, including lockdowns and proof of vaccination to access certain places.

Earlier this year, the US introduced requirements for federal employees to be vaccinated, removing the option to get routinely tested instead.

As Insider previously reported, similar vaccine mandates in Europe have proved to be successful in increasing uptake.

Research has shown that the US has much higher rates of vaccine hesitancy than most European countries.

In the same interview with Fox, Trump Jr. criticized President Biden for not completely curbing the spread of the virus and bizarrely criticized the president for not curing cancer.

“He was also going to cure cancer, if I remember correctly, Dan,” Trump Jr. told Dan Bongino. “Remember that? Everyone was, ‘Oh, that’s great, we should definitely elect him.’ I haven’t seen much movement on that.”
