John Oliver Warns Against Voting for Mike Bloomberg’s ‘Big Virgin Energy’: ‘Don’t Even F*cking Think About It’
Last Week Tonight‘s John Oliver brutally mocked former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Sunday. The HBO host told his viewers not to even consider voting for the billionaire and cited his support for the controversial Stop and Frisk policy.
Oliver joked about a CNN guest who said Bloomberg is the candidate you’d like to take to the prom.
“I do get why you might confuse him with a prom date though, he’s painfully awkward, looks uncomfortable in a suit, and he’s a virgin,” Oliver said. “I know, I know, he technically has two daughters, but that doesn’t change the fact that Michael Bloomberg has big virgin energy.”
Oliver went on to criticize Bloomberg for Stop and Frisk, which disproportionately targeted minorities.
“People of color have been dealing with shit like that forever and frankly don’t need their experience validated by somebody like me who is so white he looks like a ghost of a stork that died over a milk overdose while listening to ‘Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me,'” Oliver said.
He added “while Bloomberg eventually apologized for it, he only did it last November—just days before launching his campaign.”
“It’s kind of amazing that Bloomberg thinks his money can make people forget all of this,” he said.
On voting for Bloomberg, Oliver said “Don’t even fucking think about it.”
