    Obviously trumps budget is perverse butNotice how this hypocritical establishment mouthpiece fails to point out that the Democrats not only voted with Repubs to approve the 54 billion military budget but increased it.
    Also certainly sounds like you’re hoping there’s more military conflict under Trump than previous presidents. Nice job john...

    Remember when Rome had a governing class that didn't care about its people and they let their infrastructure collapse and how they spent way to much on their armies, so much so that they couldn't pay for their soldiers care, and were eventually over run by outside non state affiliated threats??? I don't, but it sure sounds pretty fucking close to what's happening now...

    This Military does not need any more money, I was a Tanker for the M1A2 Abram Tanks and we literally had Brand new tanks in a Desert at Fort Irwin just sitting there never used and Rusting. We had more Toys then we could Train with or ever Fucking use. If you Dont know a M1A2 Abrams tank Costs US$8.92 million and each Round we Fired was $3,000. I would Literally drive out to the Desert and Piss away 20 to 50 Rounds some Days bc we were Just Bored. You all Paid $60,000 to $150,000. They Call it Training but we literally had more Rounds then we knew what to do with and we knew we would get more. Please do not Give the Military more money you are not paying for Defense you are paying for me and my Buddy's to piss money away

    Yes everyone. This is what you do when you create a budget that will build you out of debt: prioritize! The Corporation for Public Broadcasting recieves 80% of it's funding from private sources. John Oliver, conveniently fails to mention that.

    3:50 Hate to say it Trump is making a good point U.S nuclear is needing repair. With all reality Trump is just saying shit and got lucky. However there is a recent report on checks on the U.S nuclear state which shown; poorly trained personal, facilities in need of significant repair, degrading service operations manuals. If one of these nukes needed to be used I sure hope the people using it know how to aim it and also don't use it when the winds will blow fallout back on our own troops or allies.

    I bet we get in 0 military conflicts except the continued "war" if you call it that,in the middle East. We won't attack North Korea no matter what because they will annihilate Seoul. Millions of casualties are out of the equation. Don't be rediculous people there will be no North Korean war unless they attack somebody first.

    To be fair, more money going for the care should definitely be a priority in my opinion.
    Also, based on the video you made on the storage of nuclear missiles in the US, they definitely need a bigger budget too.
    Of course, I'm not american so the cuts to social care won't affect me.

    Government safety-net programs exist to lift people out of bad temporary situations, they're not there to support bad lifestyles and lifetimes of bad decisions. Need after-school support for 6 months while you're transitioning to a new job, no problem. Need after-school support for your child's entire life because you planned on using it until the end of time? Fuck no, stop having fucking kids.

    It confounds one to no end when taking into consideration how the trumplings say that their immaculate dear-leader is unfairly depicted by media. WTF could they possibly be talking about? It's not slander to play recordings of what a person ACTUALLY SAYS, on tape! He vomits out his maniacal rambling hogwash at such a high rate that one would need cherry-pick to find AN INTELLIGIBLE, SANE statement...not so for the bad ones. There's a constant barrage of backwards, false, and fraudulently nonsensical claims & statements from him, in plain view, on tape to fill the grand canyon! How do they not see?? Denial is a powerful human trait, to be sure.

    trump is slowly turning the US into NORTH KOREA. We already spend more on defense than the next 7 military budgets in the world.INCLUDING Russia and China and 5 of our allies. Add this to his proposed Healthcare Bill, the US would fast become a 3rd world country.

    Cutting the budget of the EPA and State department isn't a cost saving measure just from the perspective of removing government funds. By removing their ability to inn-act policies this allows the free market to prevail. This in turn generates more jobs and in turn more tax revenue from said jobs. It's fine that John Oliver wants to make jokes at Trump's expense but when he tries to simplify policies and obfuscate complicated ideas into punchlines he's doing a disservice to his audience who takes his word as gospel.
    There's already 8k+ comments here so this comment will be buried to the bottom immediately but for the maybe 1 - 2 people that read this please watch some videos about Milton Friedman and free market capitalism. John Oliver is essentially pro-socialism and it's kind of scary that so many people have bought into this ideology.

      White Privilege I mean that would be true, if the free market worked. It does in vaccum, if we lived a world where the environment didn't exist we'd be flying but as it stands putting a the free market and the pursuit of wealth over the long term viability of the earth and through association the free market its self, doesn't really make sense.

    These criticisms coming from a show that reported about our antiquated nuclear program and the siphoning of public funding by special districts.
    I usually like this show because it satirizes American media and its role in politics and our daily lives. I liked that most of the reports made were about overlooked problems spinning wildly out of control, like Scientific Studies and Sex Education. And it would give amazingly thorough examples. Often times these problems were independent of the parties, meaning they were ignored because solving them wouldn't secure votes or maintain the status quo.
    Recently, since Trump entered politics, it's changed. Now it's basically just reporting about all the ridiculous things Trump says. First, this is about a wish list that needs to get approved by Congress something that traditionally never happens. Second, showing only 5 programs whose budget adds up to .22% of the national budget also doesn't make fiscal sense. That is to say, all the cuts add up to the increases proposed...obviously. This especially doesn't make sense after showing all of the programs proposed to be cut earlier in the show.
    Second, Trump based his campaign on the single principle that all press is good press. This principle has proven to be true, because he won with seemingly very little effort. Hillary, the stronger political candidate, lost the same way Nixon, also the stronger political candidate, lost to JFK: by underestimating the power of the media on the American voter. That is to say, the media is ironically responsible for the election results which they deplore as the worst thing ever, including John Oliver.
    Personally I see nothing wrong with basing the presidential budget proposal on the speeches made during his campaign. I see nothing wrong with a politician making massive changes regardless of voter opinion or being concerned about reelection. This is what the American people voted for. Obama was elected on a promise of CHANGE. We wanted him to do what Trump is doing, and he would have been better at it. But he didn't. Now we have this and it is absolutely frightening. Luckily we have checks and balances so that Trump doesn't do anything too extreme or "nation breaking." There won't be a second holocaust.
