HBO host calls Fox News personality “one of the most prominent super spreaders” of COVID-19
John Oliver used pretty much his entire “Last Week Tonight” episode Sunday to implore viewers to get the damn COVID-19 vaccine already. The HBO host ripped some other popular media personalities — Tucker Carlson, Alex Jones and Joe Rogan, who has been discouraging that message — in the process.
Oliver called it “generally dispiriting” that we’ve gone from a coronavirus-vaccine supply issue to a demand shortage. Why are people not getting the series of shots? Oliver has a theory.
Like, “this f—ing guy” Tucker Carlson, whom Oliver referred to as “one of the most prominent super spreaders” of the deadly virus.
“It is generally weird to see someone hosting a show on a supposed news network and ending every sentence with a question mark,” Oliver said. “Especially when answers to most of those questions are out there for anyone who cares to know.”
Oliver went on to call Carlson a “frozen dinner juke with a TV show” who is spreading “bulls— around during a global pandemic” with his “gape-mouthed, bad-faith wonderings.”
If you were wondering if Alex Jones got off easy — he did not.
“Alex Jones is having a blast isn’t he? No one else has as much fun while making the world a worse place to live in,” Oliver said. “It’s like he invented a jetpack that sprays everyone else beneath him with human s—.”
And on Joe Rogan: “Stop listening to what Joe Rogan tells you. He’s a f—ing moron. And those are his words, not mine.”

Oliver really knows how to sell egg life. That will make sense around the 10-minute mark or so.
