    "Ugh America isn't exactly a hero-like country either"
    Why are we judging people's views on Russia by what country they're from? Just because I, specifically, live in The Netherlands doesn't mean I am some fucking nationalist that thinks their country is the shit. I respect Putin to a degree, but a propaganda-driven superpower is scary. The Netherlands, in recent years, has experienced some corrupt ministers and other officials, leading to the 'receipt affair'. I love Russia and their heritage, but a corrupt nation shouldn't be ignored 'because other nations aren't *not* corrupt'.

    His actual wealthy is actually about $200 Billion but many say that it's difficult to actually trace down all of his dealings and all of the contracts and dealings he gets kickbacks from... it's ungodly... All of this and more when his people starve... Russia has a horrible human rights...

    The song is complete rubbish. Being an average Russian woman I don't find Putin attractive at all lol, I don't even think that he might be kind or reliable. Frankly, nobody here thinks Putin is a decent person. Only idiots brainwashed by television propaganda keep on to glorify Putin. All sane people know that Putin and all his 'henchmen' are criminals.

    What Oliver and others are calling "deflection" or "pointing the finger right back" is a logical fallacy called tu quoque ("you too"). You hear it all the time in grade school classes. "Why pick on me for cheating? Maynard was cheating too!"

    Another commonly used logical fallacy is "red herring" or just "changing the subject." "You criticize Trump, but why don't we take a look at Hillary Clinton's crimes? What happened to the 3,000 missing emails, eh?"

    Im sick of this American Imperialism bs. American corporate owned mass media is just brainwash for the ignorant and uneducated. America instigates war, while preaching peace. We have destabilized the middle east, taken europes sovereignty, started countless wars, and we sit here laughing at primitive jokes by John Oliver who gets PAID for this propaganda. FACTS: USA spends over 600 billion on defense, Russia aprox 60 billion, actually USA spends more that the whole world combined. There are 800 known US bases in foreign countries, Russian has now 201. Nato was created in 1949 to protect from Soviet Union, which no longer exists, no Cold War, why does Nato still exist and is expanding under control of the US? Because its the biggest market for American weapons/defense manufacturers would not make money. USA makes too much money from WAR, which gives them in return more control over sovereignty of other countries and expansion for military, its a win-win. Terrorism, Russia, Middle East, is an excuse for mass media – its funded by us tax payers to instigate war = money, power, control. The world quietly watches as USA surrounds Russia with “allegedly” nuclear missile defense bases. Kennedy & Reagan supported nuclear disarmament, but George W. Bush put an end to peace by withdrawing US from the nuclear treaty in 2001. Its a tragedy for a country that preaches PEACE but wont sign any agreement for total nuclear disarmament. So who's up to their necks in weapons and runs the world?! Putin is doing his job to protect the sovereignty of his country and to secure its borders because the Americans are all around it. WTF are we doing there anyway?! Enough with trying to rule the world USA with tax payers $$$!!!! How about better healthcare, education for our children, our trillion dollar dept, poverty, cure to cancer....

    Putin knows as a master manipulator that Trump really is putty in his hands. Trump requires constant hyperbolic praise. And I'm betting that that is exactly what Vlads with Abs is doing ever so strategically. Unless something is done in Trumps camp, this isn't going to end well for America.

You're demanding the observance of human rights from other nations but at the same time you tortured, committed war crimes everywhere you invade, your police forces kill niggas just because they're niggas and you're suckin cocks all over the Middle East including countries like Saudi-Arabia who kill people in broad daylight with no trial for jumping red lights and shit? You basically kill your own people as the only industrialized country in the world with no healthcare whatsoever and you DEMAND GAY RIGHTS IN RUSSIA???? YOU'RE NOT GIVING THESE RIGHTS TO YOUR OWN FUCKIN PEOPLE, HOW YOU FUCKIN DARE??? This is fuckin PROPAGANDA! We, the west, are fuckin over Russia on and on and on, for almost 30 years now with no end in sight, spreading lies, breaking promises and everything you come up with are freakin bogus stories about sportswear und photo-ops... Of course Putin takes money, big time probably, but gimme a second, in which country corporate money RUNS politics??? Believe me, Russia is obviously not the greatest country in the world, but if you over there keep going in this tempo like you did in the last 6 months Russian people will shit their pants laughin about the deconstruction of your country under Trump.

    For all those in the comments complaining about how liberal this show is, understand that it's a comedy show. This is not a news show. This has NEVER been a news show. Don't expect a comedy show hosted by a liberal person to be completely unbiased. Part of the point of the show is that it's biased. Go watch actual news if you want actual news.

      Seriously! How can you consider Vladimir Putin a "great" president, with all that has happened. He may have guts, but he uses that to intimidate people. I mean I am happy that Crimea is Russian territory, but the manner in which it became that was unfriendly cost the lives of 9,000 people. How can you a consider a president a "great" leader, who has embezzled millions of dollars from the Russian economy for self-enrichment, created a very hostile and corrupt system that literally silences opposition through virtually every means, no matter how cold-hearted it sounds?
