Description

John Oliver works to destigmatize mental illness in his latest segment.

Following another horrendous mass shooting last week at an Oregon community college, politicians and other public figures once again cited the problem to not be guns but the shooter’s poor mental health. The one thing that happened differently is now we have John Oliver to call them on our bullshit.

In fact, he gets to call everyone on their bullshit in this segment, where he lays out the current state of our country’s approach to mental health care. But don’t worry, it’s also funny because if Oliver is a pro at anything it’s letting us know we’re assholes while making us laugh.
