  1. I think Trump is ok- a lot smarter than he comes across. Everyone underestimates him but after years of watching The Apprentice I could tell he's a legend when it comes to negotiations and finding the flaws in deals. I think he'll go down as one of the best Presidents the States has ever had. All the retards out there that judge everyone on how fancy their vocabulary is have no clue what makes for real brainpower.
    Boris on the other hand, I haven't seen much of him but he strikes me as a bit of a blue-blood dolt, albeit a passionate one, and I don't think he lacks the flash Trump has to win people's trust ad get them behind him. He's not a negotiator but a public schoolboy with a bit of swagger that can probably recite Shakespear in Latin, and would do alright on University Challenge, but he won't shake the ground like Trump has. We'll see.

  2. Of all the people that are on TV, these two have the least amount of talent. Eventually a stockholder's revolt will force the networks to have good non-political shows on it. Like every period in the country, this one is coming to an end.

  3. That's Liverpool for you. They win their fisrt proper trophy in 13 years (that Carling Cup from 2012 doesn't really count, come on) and now they won't shut up about it. Gonna be bragging about this one for another decade.

  4. He wasn't elected like Trump. Trump might be the same moron, but it's American Democrats who got them into that place.
    I'm a Liberal Democrat but neveri n my life would I ever want to be associated with the nonsense American Liberal.

    The kind of democrats which will ensure Trump still is in power in 2020.
    American Liberals and Democrats. Be ashamed already for the past years and be ashamed Trump wins again because of your nonsense.

  5. Winning the champions league is better than winning the world cup simply because it's the best TEAMS in the world, not the best national teams who don't even know each other's names, Oh and the best managers/coaches.

  6. Boris made some properly negative statements about John’s beloved Liverpool. I’m pretty sure John will have plenty of material lined up for that odious twat.

  7. Oh look…liberal late night bashing trump? how novel and brave. jesus. its getting old. not a trump fan but can these constantly triggered liberal elitists please try something new? my god, WE GET IT…YOURE UPSET. YOU HATE TRUMP. #moveon #noonecaresanymore #unfollow

  8. The US has Donald Trump
    Brazil has Bolsonaro
    The UK has Boris Johnson

    This world is quickly coming to an end and nobody is noticing that.

  9. Oh whoopee! Britain had got its own Donald Trump. 😟 I don't see millions dancing the conga through the big towns and cities at this wondrous announcement

  10. Look guys. Two rich guys talking crap about people who voted someone for the people.
    I guess rich folks don't like who the people who aren't rich, elect.

  11. The difference between Boris and Trump is that Boris has a dumb/eccentric persona, but is smarter than people realise, and has a way with people. He has managed to avoid getting backstabbed, and while he is being laughed at he (1) became the first conservative lord mayor of London and then (2) became Prime Minister.
    Trump however, isn't pretending to be dumb, he actually is.

  12. Wait for another decade. The whole content of Europe will be like Boris and Trump. And that might be the end of western civilisation as we know it.

  13. We like facts : the world is leaning RIGHT due to migrant flow.

    3.5 BILLION live on $2 a day // taking in a few million does ZERO for worlds problems.

  14. Hey morons Boris is nothing like Trump…. I will not waste my time explaining but Boris will be let into Heaven and I am certain Trump wont get in.

  15. People seem to forget that prior to the Referendum Johnson was easily the most popular politician in the country, and also the most astute, most honest, and most entertaining political analyst.

    He's no Trump by any means.

  16. Liberals will bash people non stop without even knowing them or giving them a chance. And just list a bunch of mean horrible things about the person.

  17. I got to the 3 minute mark and realised we had two staunch Lefties out to fabricate a vision of our (now) new PM for their partisan American Democrat audience. Boris (unlike the REAL clown in the White House) was a brilliant scholar who won scholarships to Eton and then Oxford Uni where he excelled and was best in his years. Boris Johnson has more ability in his left toenail (seeing as the host sought to bring the talk to that inane level) than these two clowns have in their whole bodies. trump of course pales into insignificance compared to Johnson in intelligence, academic ability let alone use of language. How many books have these 'experts written'? I doubt they have 10% the depth of knowledge of their own countries compared to Johnson's knowledge of world history.
    Boris Johnson uses clever humour (obviously too clever for these two) to make and emphasise a point. Of course Americans really never understand British humour and even the ex Brit John Oliver seems too dim to understand. But I guess he is playing to the people who pay his wages. Fair enough.

    And my last comment to Mr Oliver is that it is (now) going just fine here. We have at last fronted up the EU and they are being shown for the autocratic morons they are. Johnson (unlike Theresa May) has laid down the gauntlet of negotiating a real deal and they chickened out. We WILL leave the EU on 31st October with or without a deal. SIMPLE BLOODY FACT as it is enshrined in UK Law in two Statutes. And the Remainer Parliament that has sought to betray and defy the British Electorate that made that decision in 2016 can do nothing to stop it. So blow your Leftie Socialist Remainer trumpets all you like – We, the quiet majority, will have our decision delivered as it should have been on March 29th. The UK will be a free nation contrary to what Obama and dear Hilary wanted. So suck it up and get used to it Democrats. Oh and btw never ever lecture us in the UK about Irish terrorism. You lot funded it for 30 years until you experienced terrorism yourselves on 9 / 11. We know what the GFA means and intends and we will NEVER breach that Agreement. So block a trade deal if that is what you want but just remember which country is the biggest inward investor into the USA and which country is the place of choice for US foreign investment.

  18. President Fart and Prime Minister Penis can share their stupid toupees with each other and complain about how their respective countries are being overrun by "dangerous illegals" (Mexicans and Sikhs respectively.)

  19. The smart people of the UK are sick and tired of the Theresa May bullshit like we were sick and tired of the Obama bullshit. Things are starting to look up for Europe and the UK.

  20. Imagine playing a sport that involves kicking a BALL with your FOOT and not call it FOOTBALL but play a sport where you carry an oddly shaped EGG with your HANDS and call it football…

  21. Boris is actually quite intelligent though everything he does is calculated, Trump is straight-up unintelligent. (Not a Boris fan)

  22. The reason Beyonce had to be photoshopped in is probably because everyone knows John would try and hug her like he is in the picture with the cup😂😂😂

  23. But, but, but, he still won and is now probably the 2nd most powerful leader in the world. Sorry Vlad WW3 soon.

  24. That awkward moment when your chatshow Is so shite, the only guest you can get Is another failing chatshow host..

  25. John Oliver is quite literally not funny. No listen. That's how it works guys. Quite literally NOT funny. I kid you not. Not funny. That's how it works.

  26. John Oliver had to leave our country because his penis was too small for an Englishman. Stay the f~ck away, you little weasel.

  27. I love how often these two Daily Show alumni meet up and shoot the breeze, the just need Jon Stewart and the Holy Trinity will be complete

  28. Ha! Finally…the two unfunny wannabe political commentator hacks together. Would have loved John Oliver to say Boris Johnson will never be the prime minister of Great Britain… go on Boris! Do it! Do it! You won't win we just want you to run! 😂😂😂

  29. Will you get facts right you fake news Muppet. Boris is PM of united Kingdom not England. The queen is Queen of united Kingdom and Commonwealth. Stop not only looking like a Muppet stop acting like one you democrat idiot!
