8. Donald Trump: “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” – HBO
Before Donald Trump was President-Elect of the United States of America, he was just another nominee that made up the Republican Party’s list of potential candidates to put forward for the presidency. Many didn’t think he could get that far but when he started to win key states for their nomination, the media started sitting up and taking notice.
British Comedian John Oliver then did a brilliant profile-come-take down of the candidate in a 20-minute segment on his topical comedy news show Last Week Tonight which got many people around the world, of a certain political mindset, laughing…albeit nervously. No one’s laughing now though.
