In this clip John Oliver's Last Week Tonight takes on the hypocrisy of all of those sappy ads you see companies run about wishing mothers a happy mother's day. The hypocrisy being that those same companies saying that they'd do anything for a mom because moms are special don't do something very basic for moms: provide paid maternity leave.

In this clip John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight takes on the hypocrisy of all of those sappy ads you see companies run about wishing mothers a Happy Mother’s Day. The hypocrisy being that those same companies saying that they’d do anything for a mom because moms are special don’t do something very basic for moms: provide paid maternity leave. Oliver points out that the United States and Papua New Guinea are the only two countries not to do so. But don’t worry, all you soon-to-be-moms out there. Even though you won’t get paid family leave, you can still head down to Hooters on Mother’s Day and get some free chicken wings.
