On Sunday night’s episode of “Last Week Tonight”, John Oliver revealed that he’s attempting to purchase ad time on The O’Reilly Factor in New York and Washington, D.C., in order to educate Trump about sexual harassment.
“We have produced an ad to educate Donald Trump to air during The O’Reilly Factor in New York and D.C. We submitted it to stations on Friday, but weirdly, we haven’t heard back from them since—which is a little surprising, because we are one of the only advertisers offering to buy time on his show at the moment,” said Oliver.
“Yes, Bill O’Reilly, who scientists hypothesize is kind of a dense nebula of boner and racism, has been paying out settlements for alleged harassment for years, and the details are pretty disturbing here, with the victims claiming things like verbal abuse, lewd comments, unwanted advances, and phone calls in which it sounded as if Mr. O’Reilly was masturbating.”
One person is standing by O’Reilly, and that is our “president”, Donald Trump. Yes, this past week, Trump told The New York Times, “He’s a good person… I know Bill. Bill’s a good person… I don’t think Bill would do anything wrong.”
“To recap this story for you: Bill O’Reilly needs advertisers and Donald Trump needs to understand sexual harassment. And here is where we come in.”
Oliver then aired a portion of the ad he hopes to air during The O’Reilly Factor—featuring the catheter cowboy teaching Trump about sexual harassment.
“Repeated unwanted sexual advances or obscene remarks in the workplace constitutes sexual harassment. If there’s a power disparity between the two parties, well, that’s about as inappropriate as lubricating a catheter with hot sauce, partner. Why would you do that? I do not like pain when I cath. And if you’ve got a friend who was accused of something like that over and over again, I might think twice about defending him, because that just contributes to a culture where women don’t want to come forward.”
