John Oliver’s ‘Last Week Tonight’ goes after LePage

John Oliver, former Daily Show correspondent and host of the satirical “Last Week Tonight” on HBO, profiles politicians in a series called “People Who Somehow Got Elected.” Last night, he set his sights on Maine Gov. Paul LePage.

For anyone who follows Maine politics even a little, it’s a greatest hits of LePage-isms for a national audience, including his joke about shooting the BDN’s own George Danby.

Warning: There’s some harsh language. I wouldn’t watch it at work without headphones.
