On Sunday, John Oliver inaugurated the tip Last week tonight to the national primaries.
“On Tuesday, all of these states held their primary, which, among other things, resulted in Madison Cawthorn losing his — meaning he’s now officially set a record for shortest term ever served by a little bitch,” joked the late-night host.
Yes, after the junior congressman was brought down by his own party over a series of leaked photos and a bizarre sextape – after spinning a big story about being invited to cocaine orgies by members of his own party – Cawthorn became sent home. Now he has plenty of time to explore his Hitler fetish.
But Oliver felt that “the most momentous news” came from Pennsylvania, where in the race for governor Doug Mastriano, a Trump favorite, who spread the lie that Trump lost the 2020 presidential election due to widespread voter fraud and participated in the January 6 Capitol Uprisingth won the GOP nomination.
“Yes. He marched on the Capitol on January 6thth— something that has become an odd pride for Republicans,” Oliver said. “It’s like hearing someone brag about being on the boat the night Natalie Wood died. I don’t know what’s more disturbing about it: that you think it makes you sound good, or that some people might actually agree with you.”
As a state senator, Mastriano held hearings on non-existent election fraud in 2020 – with Rudy Giuliani, the president’s bewildered consigliere – and boasted in late March of how he could rig election results.
“Through my foreign minister, I could decertify every machine in the state with the stroke of a pen,” Mastriano boasted The Bombeck Show. “I have already chosen the foreign minister. It’s a world-class individual who knows electoral integrity better than anyone in the nation, I think, and I already have a team being built around that individual.
“Wow. That’s ominous because I don’t know who he’s thinking of, but I know there’s no way you’re a world-class person because 1) everyone Mastriano likes is immediately suspicious and 2) the only one really World class people on the planet are Dolly Parton and… bottom of the list.”
Mastriano is also a gun nut who supports a “total ban on abortion” with no exceptions, including rape, incest or cases where the mother could die. Oh, and he attended a conference with prominent QAnon crazies – where he was presented on stage with a shiny sword.
