Hey France, don’t f*ck up, too.
That’s John Oliver’s message to French people, as he broke down the upcoming elections on Last Week Tonight. (If you can’t view the video in your region, here’s another version of it. The segment starts at about 11:30 in.)
He discusses the eccentricities of the political hopefuls, including one candidate’s very funny lack of Star Wars knowledge.
But it’s far-right candidate Marine Le Pen Oliver is most worried about. Her National Front party has captured several national and local seats and the supporters are very motivated. There are also ramifications for the future of Europe as Le Pen could possibly support taking France out of the European Union.
Oliver ends the show with a passionate plea in French. “Marine Le Pen ishow do you say in French? A demagogic asshole,” he says. C’est magnifique!
