        Those hosts have a bad vibe to them. They are bad persons. Insecure, gossiping, pretentious, fake-warmhearted. I don't like them.

              Gayle is obnoxious because of her insecurity. I think she knows she doesn't deserve to be there.

                What a lousy, chaotic interview and that's definitely not due to John Oliver...!! If it hadn't been for him I would have tuned out in less then a minute... !

                          I see all of the snowflakes have bunkered here to lick each others’ wounds and turned the comment section into a shrine for them to write prayers and devotions to the only source they trust to get their anti-Trump news. With the state of things, it looks like Trump is going to win another election, and the liberals have no one to blame but themselves. #Trump2020

                                                This is a terrible interview. John Oliver has so much talent and these hosts totally failed him.

                                                  Oliver's a lot more interesting when he's talking across to adults and not throwing in awkward F bombs whenever possible to "relate" to the kids. See, people laugh anyhow and yes, they like you.

                                                    Watching John trying to explain himself here is like watching him with a bunch of 4 year olds. Its difficult and he doesn't get anywhere.

                                                      Everything John says to Charlie sounds so sarcastic now

                                                        John is amazing but those laughs the host did was so forced. Like some things went right over their heads or they tried to make it seem like they weren't lightly joked about. It was uncomfortable to watch them laugh. You could hear the difference of John and the hosts minds. John was extremely sophisticated and knew what he was saying. The questions they asked seemed like a lower level.
