One thing is for sure — you can count on John Oliver to tell it like it is!
The Last Week Tonight host went off on the United Kingdom’s recent Brexit event on his show late Sunday night, calling out voters for deciding to leave the European Union.

The host laid out the “swift and significant” fallout, as he termed it, noting plummeting stocks and a historically weak currency immediately after the vote, calling out the country itself in a very pointed way:
“[The United Kingdom] is a place whose very name, after this week’s events, is beginning to sound a bit sarcastic.”
Oliver calls out Nigel Farage, the man at the helm of the pro-Brexit camp, by noting he could be a “three-time cover model for Punchable Face Magazine.”
He also hit back at Boris Johnson, the former mayor of London who wanted the UK to leave, too — calling him “a shaved orangutan with Owen Wilson‘s hair.”
Above all, Oliver dropped the truth while summing it up perfectly:
“Whoever the next UK prime minister is going to be, whether it’s Boris Johnson or a racist tea kettle, they’re going to be in for a rough few years.”

Well, not so nice for the UK… but nice of Oliver to at least call ’em out for a bad decision!!
