Jesus, New Hampshire lawmakers are dicks

Автор Brenda Li ( назад)
try to think it from the govs perspective tho, bc if they let that bill pass then many more like that may happen, and then what is the point of a mascot?, and think about how much paperwork and how hard it'll be for the gov. the kids likely shouldn't​ have brought the bill, and the school board should have thought it through (maybe in highschool with a v important bill, perhaps). with a bill the kids should be expected to be treated like adults. the Canadian gov would vote no too if that was the case. Don't just slam the government for that (although they probably should have been much kinder about it); they work their butts off for you guys. haven't you noticed the best way to get older is going into government?
Politicians are not dicks - actually, they are; many people complaining about them actually can't seem to live without them, and well, figure out the rest.

yo! governors! remember these kids will be the ones vote for you soon.

Jeez, Oliver was terrified at the hawk XD

Автор Emilio Reyes ( назад)
The symbol for planed parent hood....ok, even as someone who's pro life...that was a little uncalled for buddy. I dont think the kids needed to hear that!

even a house spider does 100x more useful work than these politicians.

That reminded me a lot of the mortal combat announcer 3:30

"Just vote yes and make them happy." The slogan of the Democratic party since 1932.

What Last Week Tonight has taught me about congress is that they spend an awful lot of time complaining about their jobs.

Автор Rys Halverson ( назад)
Unfortuantly for those kids Ms. Lesters 5th grade homeroom lobbied against the bill with school fundraising money

Автор Loyda Santana ( назад)
That state senator was beyond inappropriate and disgusting. Talk about voter disconnection!

Автор Katie Mirassou ( назад)
I gasped so hard I choked on my own spit!

Автор Tim Anderson ( назад)
ever see a group of people who need to thrown into the ocean ???? I just did

Автор Martin F. White ( назад)
293 representatives seems a bit excessive for a state the size of New Hampshire.

Автор remraft ( назад)
lmao-- the congressman describing the red tailed hawk sounds exactly like every 6 year old child on the playground who is SUPER EAGER to share what they read in their zoobooks

Автор Jose Torres ( назад)
Perfect example why most politicians are pieces of shit.

Автор David Walcher ( назад)
1:30 And this, kids, is a fucking asshole in his natural habitat.

Автор sugerapplebottom ( назад)
I'm not sure if they are ripping off the Texas law hawk guy or are making it part of the joke.

Автор vint J ( назад)
lesson in democracy? it is a joke now. look at it! u are dickhead if you don't pass the bill that will cheer the fourth graders? why? they are cute and future generations! do what ever that make them happy. I agree that people pay government work for the people, yet, not in an amusing way. A comedy show will do better.

Автор Aye-Htun Ohn ( назад)
Kind of explains why Trump is popular around NH...

Автор Alan Tyson ( назад)
Is John Oliver one of the most powerful people in America?

Автор Ben Jackbag Mank ( назад)
If you need to pass something just because a class of 4th graders suggested it and they will be sad if you don't, can we get a class of forth graders to propose getting money out of politics? This story is so stupid.

Автор Something Clever ( назад)
Just when I think I can't hate politicians any more. We are so screwed until my generation dies off. I am sorry

Автор BuddhatheBlackDog ( назад)
totally agree w the legislature.why be upset when kids get hit with reality

Автор DreamingClouds ( назад)
If they dish out crap on the red-tail for being a predetor and eating meat I just need to hear their thoughts and opinnions on the bald eagle...

Автор juan catfish ( назад)
What a douche.

Автор crewmate ( назад)
That midair 360 catch was pretty sick, indeed.

Автор Mythology Guy ( назад)
This was a bad moment in NH history

Автор Bel-Shamharoth ( назад)
Why does it feel like John gets more shit done in one week than the government?

Автор Ciaban Krommenhock ( назад)
Man the British nerd sure looked uncomfortable around his show's official raptor.

Автор Troy Van ( назад)
So we should do whatever the children say? While we're at it, why not make those children state reps?

Автор tSp289 ( назад)
Well, those children certainly got a lesson in civics. They learned about small-minded stubborn stick-in-the-mud dickheads willing to disappoint their constituents out of spite and crowbar in a reference to their favourite political hot topic.

Автор Jason Martin ( назад)
Time to overthrow the government.

I remember doing a report on the Red-Tailed Hawk in elementary school.

I lost my fucking shit when he used CHILDREN'S BILL to make a statement on Planned Parenthood. What a raging asshole!

Автор Florian Wicher ( назад)
I don't know if it's usual to pass useless bills like this in the US and I see how it's uncomforting to the children - but seriously guys, democracy is not a game and putting useless bills like this in front of your representatives which they HAVE to discuss just slows down the political process.

Автор TheGoldcountry ( назад)
"WHAT is WRONG with you?!?!" I wish I had the answer, John, because I wonder the same thing.

Автор deathhound7 ( назад)
Shit, I hope Missouri hasn't pulled this crap. If it doesn't violate partisan line, doesn't have any negative effect whatsoever, and makes some god damn kids happy and actually eager to take part in our flawed, hopeless democratic process, THEN FUCKING DO IT!''

New Hampshire is a pussy state.

Автор garcemac ( назад)
There are six "people" there. I am assuming all the sane councilors stayed home because they knew these assholes would insult children.

Автор Cyclone11 ( назад)
I'd say that the kids got a very realistic taste in politics....

Автор Daniel Jacobson ( назад)
can someone tell me what the first two sentences are he is saying? i just can't understand it or just don't get the joke..

Автор skrahnha ( назад)
they got a lesson in real democracy

Автор MusikCassette ( назад)
Well they certainly got a ralistic impression, what it is like, to try to pass a bill.

Автор Anthony Capaccio ( назад)
That's not tha worst thing those pedophiles do to children...

Автор Oliver HxC ( назад)
That was no 360° you morons, that was a cashroll, one of the harder tricks in BMX. A 360° is a joke compared to a cashroll.

Some people take every facet of life waaaay too seriously, pompous gits, thanks John glad "Red" has a good home.

"In March 18, 2011, the U.S. state of Utah—as a way of honoring M1911 designer John Browning, who was born and raised in the state—adopted the Browning M1911 as the "official firearm of Utah"."

Politicians are all psychopaths, inhuman machines wearing suits, old people with brains made of Swiss Cheese. Crappy old humans that should be sent to the retirement home so their babble can't harm the rest of us.

Автор FelpHero ( назад)
This reminds me of that South Park episode where Stan's team of kindergarden students gets to play against the professional Red Wings team, and they get completely butchered with teeth and blood flying out everywhere and their little friend dies at the hospital that day because they lose the game

Автор Thomas Bryant ( назад)
This is hilarious. I have to say that it's right that the State House worked that way that day. The kids are supposed to learn and boy did they! I don't know what the teacher thought of all of this after the fact but I'd like to give that teacher a raise in pay for really engaging the kids in something cool and worthwhile  instead of boring them to death in class with "Education".

Автор NinaMay ( назад)
wow... Ass hat alert.

Автор PIlotrcm ( назад)
Wow municipal governments are stupid.

Автор Izzy Cinister ( назад)
Only in New Hampshire!

Автор Salsagirl66 ( назад)
These kids may have been disappointed, but they did get a very realistic view on what politics has become in the US.....

Автор SomeDudeOnaCouch ( назад)
Hawk 360 no scope pheasant!?!

Автор frank jones ( назад)
Oh cmon guys, Tobias would be an awesome state raptor!

Автор justachannel ( назад)
I have a group of third graders who want you to make the brown rat the official vermin of _Last Week Tonight_.

Автор CJ T ( назад)
Those assholes didn't just kill those kids impression of a government that gives a shit, that's going to seriously damage their motivation to LEARN IN GENERAL!

Автор Tacos Buenos ( назад)
teach kids that the world will be handed to them on a silver platter, that's the American Way.

Автор Tacos Buenos ( назад)

Автор David Umstattd ( назад)
seriously though seeing that hawk grab that pheasant was freaking amazing.

Автор Robert Bosshardt ( назад)
At least they were being honest about how politics work.

Автор Caitlin Hallihan ( назад)
Special mention goes to the falconer who adds a small look to the camera before extending the hawk closer to the terrified john oliver.

Автор Esperanza Martinez ( назад)
I think these children had an unfortunately accurate experience with the government.

Автор william badovinac ( назад)
John Oliver goes from funny to pathetic in less than a year. His next appearance should be replacement for Barbara Walters on The View where "a sort of male type" is sadly needed.                                                                  

Автор AVKnecht ( назад)
What's the problem? The sooner little kids learn that politicians don't give a fuck about them the better.

Автор yoyoBrando ( назад)
I have just one problem with this clip. The hawk towards the end did not do a 360. That was clearly a flair.

Автор Luke Lewis ( назад)
The Red tailed hawk could freedom the ass off their state bird.

New Hampshire: a state where until quite recently it was legal to shit in public and one of the last states to crack down on pedophilia. They sure shot down that hawk bill quick tho...

Автор Jordan Gons ( назад)
"Just vote yes and make them happy" is a stupid argument. Why shouldn't they shoot it down? Do you really think they want it to be the norm to just pass tons of bills and waste there time with stuff like this. 

Автор Py N ( назад)
Why aren't there any comments about John Oliver's hilarious reaction to having a red tailed hawk right next to him

Автор Maxnext Pluto ( назад)
the legislators could have tacked on a pay raise for themselves while passing this.

Автор Luc Buydens ( назад)
So those kids learned how politics really works. Excellent field trip.

Автор Herman Langland ( назад)
I fucking LOVE Joh Oliver!

Автор Jeffrey Pierce ( назад)
He shouldn't have sworn so much during the video -- how can the teacher show that video to his/her class? 

Автор burazfly ( назад)
Planned Parenthood was founded by Eugenics like Margaret Sanger who created American Birth Control League that due to its horrifying policy's had to change name to sound friendly into planned parenthood.
This show is proof that democracy naturally leads to tyranny.

Автор Joris ridder de van der Schueren ( назад)
IN AMERICA you say???? hahahahahahahahahahahaha, they first have to find in a dictionary the MEANING of the word, hahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahah

Автор Drummer_Jez ( назад)
and to think ... politicians are always using children as a crutch ... "think of the children"   "stop bullying"  ... etc   and they all just basically said ..." FUCK YOU KIDDIES!!! fuck you until you are old enough to join the army and vote ... then fuck you anyway"   i mean .. they could have worded it in a way that was complex and using big words that would go over their heads

Автор HeliRy ( назад)
Love how the guy, in a round about sort of way, pretty much called the kids who put the bill forward "bastards".

Nice guy.

Автор ZeiglerJaguar ( назад)
Sorry, Tobias. New Hampshire's legislature is clearly riddled with Controllers.

Автор Hugo Lalumiere ( назад)
Just another proof that politicians are right there among the lowest form of social frickin' scum. They go out of their way to look ridiculous and garner hatred. Geez.

Автор FNGLHR ( назад)
When the guy went off on planned parenthood I basically wanted to know what the fuck was going on? Why the hell did they act like this in front of children? It's not going to hurt anyone! Just let them have their state raptor! The hell crawled up their butts and decided to make them assholes for the day? Christ.

Автор Monica Derr ( назад)
Ah, home sweet home.

Автор dune3001 ( назад)
i wonder is the kids' teacher had to explain to them afterwards what planned parenthood is and why that guy said it was a better mascot for them...hawkward...

Автор elcnature ( назад)
They showed a lot of Harris's Hawks in their Red Tailed Hawk video...

Автор Johan Lundberg ( назад)
this is how the US government works

Автор themadblonde ( назад)
Love the segment, but pretty sure the bird at 3:38 is a Harris Hawk. Harris Hawks are ALSO cool, but they're not Red-Tailed cool.

Автор phildirt3 ( назад)
did u see those fat ass morons?

Автор Jeremy Francis ( назад)
And the fourth graders all resolved to a new-found political apathy... 

Loved this!

Автор Dan R. ( назад)
This is a lesson in real politics. These kids have learned something few others get to experience.

Автор magicelemental ( назад)
New Hampshire lost its chance to have the Red-Tailed Hawk.

Автор Ryan Lehman ( назад)
I love this show

Автор Atom Man ( назад)
that planned parenthood remark was genius..

that being said; for the people saying, "just pass the bill" that's not how it really works now is it? these kids must be shown that not every bill that comes to the floor will be treated like an AIPAC bill.

Автор TheFredducky ( назад)
I belive that the hawk at 3:38 is actually a Harris Hawk, not a redtail, but correct me if I'm wrong. Just very particular about hawks. After all, hawks have been know to feast on duck kind.
