John Oliver on John Key:
Last Week Tonight’s John Oliver says ‘gigantic clown’ John Key makes great TV
US television host John Oliver has admitted to a “deep fascination” with John Key – and appealed for Kiwi audiences to find him even more footage of the prime minister to mock on his satirical news show.
In an interview with Stuff, Oliver said there were two reasons for Key’s appeal.
“The first is that New Zealand itself is a genuinely interesting country; the second is that John Key is a very odd human being. It’s like a clown car in a circus parade. The car itself is fascinating, but the clown is really the thing that draws your eye. And John Key is nothing if not a gigantic clown.”
Hah Hah NZ – joke’s on us!
