John Oliver targets UK PMs Rishi Sunak, Tom Brady, Kristen Stewart and Elon Musk

John Oliver Sunday’s Last Week Tonight pointed out that it was a busy week, “from Big Scale Iran protests continue because Tom Brady is suddenly missing a ring.”

HBO The host’s slam on Tom Brady refers to his with Gisele Bundchen ) divorce and his seven Super Bowl rings.

After that, Oliver went on to be the replacement of the British Prime Minister. Oliver pointed out that the former Liz Truss was only on the job 100 days during which the tabloids the Daily Star created a stunt asking which would last longer – truss or iceberg lettuce head. After Truss resigned, a picture of a head of lettuce was projected on the outer wall of parliament.

“Fine, right?” Oliver said. “From the challenge itself to the phrase ‘victory head of lettuce’ to the wide-eyed and cute blonde bombs. Every step is well thought out and beautifully executed.”

Oliver It noted that Truss fired senior staff, including Home Secretary Suella Braverman, who used her personal information to breach security protocols for emails used to send government documents. Oliver later pointed out that the new prime minister, Rishi Sunak, had actually rehired Braverman six days after she was fired.

“Ultimately, Sunak was very lucky that he followed the LIz truss because the bar is too low right now,” Oliver said. “What he’s really going to do is not personally throw the economy into chaos and give a speech without leaving weird pauses.”

But Oliver then showed Sunak’s video The way to end a speech is to stare straight ahead in an awkward silence for a few seconds, then turn around and walk off the stage.

Oliver joked: “He looked like he was reading the teleprompter malfunctioning, replacing his speech with ‘panic attack.’ Now.'”

Later, Oliver talked about bail reform in his main section. He showed clips of New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea blaming the crime wave for bail reform, contradicting previous statements.

Oliver replied: “Well, what is it, Dermot? Are these numbers significant, or are they bail reform Percentages lead to more shootings? Because these things are mutually exclusive. The only thing that can be both “not dramatic” and “100 Percentage” place is Kristen Stewart’s overall vibe. She’s giving it her all, but she’s also giving us absolutely nothing Stuff. This is awesome.”

Later in the show, he goes on to talk about computer algorithms that score people in prisons. A new system being used in New Jersey weighs factors such as previous convictions, rather than arrests or socioeconomic factors, to determine whether to release someone based on the likelihood of re-offending and escaping court, rather than assigning bail.

Oliver points out, however, that these systems are not without inherent biases. Another system in Florida was found to be “especially likely to falsely label black defendants as future criminals,” and was “almost twice as likely to falsely label them as white defendants,” Oliver said, citing A 1235245357 Story in ProPublica.

“This is basically a racist computer and I realize it could be Elon Musk the next billion-dollar idea,” quipped Oliver.
