6. Good one!

I get irritated when the news people keep calling Trump "president." In no way is he doing the job, let alone having lost by millions of votes. The only way it's appropriate would be if they used air quotes.

10. I agree, John Oliver was great on this topic and I was glad that he weighed in

As we know, Trump is not just biased, but hopeless on just about anything.

11. Thanks Rhiannon!

I always learn so much from John. He has a way of getting to the point, yet doing so in a humorous, interesting way so that you don't lose interest in his more serious, underlying message. He really has a gift that way.

12. I agree, that's really his talent

He can take any topic - and he seems to be choosing some pretty serious and international topics for this show - and present it in an amusing and interesting way. That's a unique talent, and he's still very funny!
